Completed in October 2021, the Jelajahi Laut, meaning “Explore the Sea”, is a 105-ft phinisi boat ― a six-cabin dive liveaboard ― designed by experienced divers and handcrafted in Indonesia. With a dedicated and friendly team of 11 boat crew, a cruise director and dive crew, she takes ocean lovers on dive cruises through breathtaking scenery to the magnificent dive sites of eastern Indonesia.
Life on board
Accommodating 14 guests for most trips, and 16 guests for full boat charters, there are two cabins with double beds on the top deck, with ensuite bathrooms, private balconies and amazing views, two deluxe cabins with ensuite bathrooms, one double bed (and one single bed suitable for a child for use during charters only), and two standard cabins with three single beds and a shared bathroom – ideal for solo travelers willing to share so they don’t have to pay a supplement.
Communal spaces include a large sundeck furnished with beanbags, while the timber-clad interior features air-conditioned indoor dining and living spaces complete with picture windows, built-in dining tables and bench seats, a widescreen TV and sound system, board games, and a library. In between dives, there will be plenty of time for you to relax, watch the sunset and enjoy delicious meals.
Equipment and water activities
The Jelajahi Laut comes with full dive equipment purchased in 2021, including 40 x 11-liter tanks (DIN and INT), four 15-liter tanks, Suunto dive computers, two Bauer air compressors, emergency o2 (12-liter and two 50-liter tanks), snorkeling gear, stand-up paddleboards, and two speedboats. These facilities will allow you to enjoy the beautiful islands of Indonesia, exploring the clear waters on the paddleboards or by speedboat, and submerging beneath the surface for some of the best diving on Earth.
The Jelajahi Laut operates throughout the year to eastern Indonesian destinations in accordance with the trade winds. Typically, you can explore the Komodo National Park from May to October, where you can go trekking in search of Komodo dragons, and dive with giant manta rays and turtles. From Mid-November to April, in the privileged waters of Raja Ampat, you will find hunting tuna, trolling sharks, fusiliers, giant groupers, schools of humpbacked parrotfish and mating mandarinfish.
Also on offer are several epic mini expeditions per year, aimed at experienced divers, which will take you on routes less traveled to explore some of Indonesia’s most remote dive locations within the famous Coral Triangle. Here, you can expect to be amazed by pristine coral reefs, brilliant soft corals, oversized gorgonians, and vibrant sponges within a tapestry of color and texture. You’re likely to see schooling jacks, hammerheads, dancing mobula rays, manta rays, lionfish, clownfish, batfish, crocodile fish, colorful nudibranchs, ghost pipefish and several species of pygmy seahorse.
Even when you’re just chilling on the deck, there is the possibility of spotting pods of dolphins or pilot whales. These are expeditions of discovery, where you might find anything and everything from new dive sites to spectacular scenery and village life above the surface.
You can be sure to experience an unforgettable voyage aboard the Jelajahi Laut, visiting astonishing locations, while diving and snorkeling, as well as paddleboarding and wildlife spotting within the glorious scenery and waters of the Indonesian archipelago. With a professional and experienced crew onboard, the boat caters to couples, solo travelers, and groups of friends.
