Extensively refitted in 2017, the 98-ft Carpe Diem is a traditional Indonesian phinisi boat offering year-round liveaboard dive cruises within the Indonesian Archipelago. You can look forward to diving or snorkeling, kayaking or simply relaxing and lounging upon the deck, while being served by a world-class crew and a private chef. With four beautifully appointed cabins, Carpe Diem Phinisi can comfortably sleep up to 10 guests.
Carpe Diem’s air-conditioned cabins can be configured to suit a variety of sleeping arrangements, ideal for families, couples or groups of friends. The impressive Master Cabin on the Main Deck spans almost the entire width of the boat and has a skylight and large windows on three sides to let in plenty of sunlight, as well as a separate shower-room and en-suite bathroom.
Three more cabins sit on the Lower Deck; one of which can be set as either twin or double that is ideal for friends or siblings to share, while the other two can be set up as triples with a double bed and a top bunk for an additional guest. Each cabin has an en-suite bathroom and features gorgeous teakwood floors, Indonesian textiles, a writing desk, and ample storage space.
Life On Board
The expansive Main Deck sweeps above the Master Cabin to the wheelhouse presenting an alfresco dining area. The upper deck invites you to the lounge with a low table, hammock and sun loungers. This multi-use teak-floored space is ideal for activities such as sunrise yoga sessions before gearing up for the day’s activities, and then relaxing with a cocktail as the sun goes down.
Feast on imaginative dishes comprising locally-sourced fresh ingredients around the central dining table, or lie in the sun with a book while cruising through the islands. On the Upper Deck there is another chill-out area with sun loungers and unobstructed views all around, and on the Fore Deck there is a dive station. Inside you will find a cosy salon with a 10-seater dining table, a galley-kitchen, and a library stocked with plenty of books.
Exploring The Underwater World
With an affinity for ocean conservation, Carpe Diem’s crew happily caters to beginners and experienced divers, as well as snorkelers. All dives are accompanied by qualified dive guides bringing together the essential combination of local knowledge and international standards. As a testament to Carpe Diem’s commitment to safety, each diver is provided with a waterproof GPS locator. Full first aid and oxygen equipment is on board.
There are nine friendly and professional crew members on the Carpe Diem Liveaboard Indonesia, including a cruise director. You can look forward to beach barbecues, snorkeling activities in gin-clear water on shallow reefs, expeditions to little-known dive sites, as well as visits to remote villages to learn more about the people, history and cultures of Indonesia. The crew can also set you up with stand-up paddleboards and kayaks.
The intimate cruises are crafted around the dream of facilitating adventures and fun, both above and below the surface for small groups, families and individuals who are looking for superb, personalized service.
