The History of M.Y Oceanic
Crafted in 2012 with handpicked tropical timbers from Kalimantan (Indonesian Borneo), Oceanic was acquired by the team in 2017 and underwent a complete renovation to tailor her for diving liveaboard cruises, incorporating insights gained over their 16 years of successful operation with Ondina. The boat’s abundant and spacious common areas make it an ideal choice for smaller groups, while its robust engine provides impressive speed for venturing into the eastern regions of Komodo, Flores, Alor, and the Banda Sea.
Living on Board
The team onboard M.Y. Oceanic Liveaboard has added a new upper-deck suite, complementing the lower-deck suite and four standard cabins (all featuring double beds and top bunks), providing comfortable accommodations for 12 passengers across six double AC/ensuite cabins. Three gensets ensure uninterrupted 220 V electricity supply, equipped with two-pin European standard sockets.
Diving with M.Y Oceanic
Diving is typically carried out from the tenders. It is recommended that divers possess either an advanced certification or have completed a minimum of 50 logged dives. The crew will take great care in assessing the divers’ proficiency levels and planning underwater activities accordingly. However, it’s important to note that certain dives may involve strong currents, underscoring the significance of individual divers’ experience for the safety and overall satisfaction of the entire group.
On an average day, there are usually 3 or 4 dives scheduled. Night dives are offered almost every day, unless conditions or long sailing distances prevent them. Upon arrival, there is a check dive in the afternoon followed by a night dive. On the last day, two morning dives are scheduled to allow for desaturation before departing the following day.
Diving tanks and weights are provided for divers, while snorkeling gear and an introductory dive are available for non-divers.
