liveaboards in indonesia

Indonesia offers some of the best scuba diving in the world with a huge variety of different destinations. Many of these are best done via liveaboard between the thousands of islands. The liveaboards in Indonesia offer something for almost every like and budget

Indonesia lies in the Coral Triangle, the region with the worldwide highest biodiversity underwater. It is home to at least 4000 different fish and invertebrate species and about 15% of the world’s coral reefs can be found here.

Some of the most famous liveaboard destinations are Komodo, Raja Ampat, the Banda sea and the Forgotten Islands.

Many boats alternate between Komodo (April – October) and Raja Ampat (November – March) depending on the season and offer transfer trips to the Banda Sea in between.

The prices vary as much as the liveaboards do. Per night the costs are between USD 200 and 500.
