Liveaboard Holidays In Indonesia
Most of the 17,000 islands that form Indonesia are uninhabited, and many remain unexplored. Indonesia is the largest archipelago in the world with at least 80,000 kilometres of coastline. Liveaboards are the ultimate choice for exploring this diverse and beautiful dive destination.
Indonesia is a remote paradise that offers an incredible and quite unique underwater environment. The water is a consistently warm temperature all year round - a perfect breeding ground for an incredible range of marine life.
No two dives are ever the same. With over 3,000 fish species and 600 species of coral, steep walls, deep water trenches, underwater volcanic mountains and World War II wrecks you will never be disappointed with what you saw on your dive. For lovers of macro-life Indonesia boasts pygmy sea horses, mandarin fish and plenty of nudibranch. Diving Indonesia is truly excellent, one of our most exotic scuba diving destinations with some of the most luxurious liveaboards you will ever experience.
The Indonesian archipelago is made up of around 18,000 islands and distances between dive sites can require sea crossing to remote spots. What better way to do this than on an Indonesian liveaboard, diving as you go.
The added social aspect of an Indonesia liveaboard is also a popular side to trips like this. With the shared dining facilities and close-knit nature of the luxury cruise boats this ensures you have plenty to talk about with like-minded people sharing your passion for Indonesian diving.
Komodo National Park
The Komodo National Park lies east of Bali between the islands of Sumbawa and Flores. These islands, lying east to west, are separated by an 80 Km wide passage and the Sape Straight. Komodo Liveaboards sail these straights around the 29 islands of the Komodo National Park, including the three larger islands Komodo, Padar and Rinca. Huge tidal flows between the Pacific and Indian oceans cause upwelling’s of cold, nutrient rich water delivering a constant stream of food for the rich reefs and marine life found around the islands of the Komodo National Park.
Papua and Raja Ampat
It is possible to dive Raja Ampat year round and in terms of marine life and visibility there's no best time to dive Raja Ampat. But for liveaboard diving in Raja Ampat the topside conditions are equally important and between mid-June to mid-September the conditions can deteriorate so many liveaboards move to other location including to the Komodo National Park during these months
Other destinations included in the Indonesia Liveaboard Itineraries include: Alor; Ambon; Banda Sea; Cenderawasih Bay National Park; Islands east of Flores; Pulau Weh; Wakatobi National Park

Q: What about passport and visa requirements?
Passengers travelling to Indonesia and Timor-Leste should have minimum six months valid on their passport from the date of return to the UK, plus one full page free. Hotel receptions may be required to take a photocopy of your passport for registration purposes.
Q: What about vaccinations?
There are no compulsory vaccinations for travel, but we recommend protection against typhoid, tetanus, hepatitis A and polio. Vaccination requirements are subject to change.
Q: Is Indonesia a safe place to visit?
The vast majority of Indonesians are honest people with a strong sense of right and wrong. Tourism however does attract pickpockets and thieves the world over so to ensure an enjoyable stay, use some common sense. Be aware and don't leave valuables unattended.
Q: What clothing should I bring?
Indonesia is hot and humid so light, loose cotton clothing is most recommended. When exploring the night-life, tight dresses, shorts, and miniskirts are no problem. However, naked sunbathing or topless appearance in public places is considered offensive, especially when you are outside the main tourist areas. You must wear conservative clothing when in temples or mosques.
