About The MARI

The MARI liveaboard is a beautiful traditional Indonesian phinisi that offers year-round diving trips in Raja Ampat and the Banda Sea. The concept is to keep a small number of guests relative to its size to provide more space and comfort for everyone on board.

Discover the MARI Liveaboard

MARI was built by traditional boat builders in South Sulawesi. They made it for their own diving expeditions in Indonesian waters, from Sumatra to Papua. To ensure her durability and strength in the water, the builders used ironwood. In 2016, the 30m vessel underwent a complete refurbishment to provide modern furnishings and ample onboard space.

Moreover, the Liveaboard offers a lot of space and comfort. It can accommodate up to 14 guests, making it suitable for non-divers and families as well. MARI has 7 cabins, including 3 deluxe and 4 superior options. They all feature individually controlled AC, storage space, and private bathrooms. Situated on the main deck, the bright and well-ventilated cabins provide cozy accommodations for the guests.

In addition, MARI liveaboard offers several common areas. You will find an open-air lounge and bar, as well as 2 sun decks with loungers. Recently, the addition of a highly-trained chef onboard ensures that divers can enjoy a wide variety of fresh, healthy, and delicious cuisine. Furthermore, the al-fresco dining table provides the perfect place to enjoy a hearty meal while surrounded by stunning scenery.

Diving Experience

MARI has new and reliable technical equipment, a seasoned captain and crew, 3 experienced dive masters, and an English-speaking cruise director to ensure a safe and enjoyable diving experience for divers of all levels

Moreover, the liveaboard explores the best of Indonesia’s dive sites, moving around Raja Ampat and the Banda Sea. This allows divers to explore one of the most diverse marine environments in the world. The MARI’s spacious dive deck, gear storage, individual rinse tanks, large dive tender, and the recent addition of Nitrox ensure a comfortable and convenient dive liveaboard experience.
