With her distinctive red hull and red sails, and a red-accented color theme that runs throughout her cabins and decks, the 108-ft-long La Galigo Liveaboard is a traditional two-mast phinisi sailing boat, built by Buginese craftsmen in 2012. Accommodating 14 guests, she offers year-round dive cruises to the magnificent national parks of Komodo and Raja Ampat in Indonesia. There are 13 crew members on hand, so you can expect a lot of personal attention.
La Galigo has seven air-conditioned cabins in three categories, each with an en-suite bathroom. The two Master Cabins are positioned on the Upper Deck, offering a secluded spot to wake up in the morning to witness the sunrise and world class views. Both Master Cabins can either be configured as two single beds or as a double bed.
There are four Deluxe Cabins positioned on the Lower Deck, two of which may be altered to accommodate two singles or one double. All cabins are filled with plentiful natural light and all beds are fitted with deep spring mattresses. The engine room is isolated away from cabins with thick soundproofing, which even though not silent, makes for a better night’s sleep.
For added luxury you can choose The Suite on the Upper Deck; this is the boat’s premium option, which has everything you will need for your ultimate liveaboard experience, including a 48-inch HD TV & DVD player, a private lounge room with sofas and coffee tables, and an exquisite private balcony with seating for both dining and relaxing.
The 270-degree views of the sea and the passing islands makes it a delightful place to unwind after an active day of diving. It comes with an oversized en-suite bathroom, a king bed and its own refrigerator.
Life On Board
Beautifully finished in Indonesian teak, the air-conditioned salon and dining area on the main deck is the social hub of this liveaboard. Here you can enjoy a large TV, DVD player, music system and computer, a well-stocked bookcase and many power points for charging and preparing laptops, cameras and video equipment.
This is also where you will relish the chef’s freshly prepared range of Indonesian and international dishes. Vegetarian and Vegan requests can easily be accommodated with advance notice. There is also space in the sun, and the shade, on the Upper Deck where you can lounge in reclining chairs enjoying the tranquil ocean breeze while marveling at the passing views.
The Dive Deck
The dedicated dive platform is located at the rear of the vessel with plenty of space to kit up; it features three fresh water showers, a camera table and rinse tanks. Diving facilities include: full Aqualung rental equipment with 32% Nitrox and 12-liter aluminium tanks. The boat has two tenders and dive courses are available.
The La Galigo Liveaboard is very much a friends and family affair, and trips are always focused on fun and guest comfort. Land tours are an integral part of La Galigo’s outlined itineraries, allowing divers to also experience the breath-taking above-water beauty and diverse cultures that Indonesia has to offer.
