SMY Ondina Liveaboard presents an extraordinary opportunity to dive into the heart of Indonesian paradise. With its traditional Phinisi design, comfortable accommodations, and expertly curated routes, Ondina promises a great liveaboard experience for divers seeking both adventure and authenticity.

The History of SMY Ondina

Launched in 2001, SMY Ondina showcases the craftsmanship of the Bugis tribes, employing traditional methods and tropical timbers passed down through generations. The vessel stands as a testament to their seafaring heritage, providing a unique and authentic setting for diving enthusiasts. With a strong emphasis on catering to divers’ needs, Ondina was tailor-made by a diver, ensuring an exceptional underwater experience.

Living on Board

Step into the spacious interiors of SMY Ondina, where 16 passengers can find comfort in 8 double air-conditioned cabins, each with its own ensuite bathroom. The foredeck boasts two cabins with twin single bunks, while the remaining six cabins offer a double bed with a single bunk on top. To ensure a continuous supply of electricity, three gensets provide 220V power, featuring two-pin European standard sockets for convenience.

SMY Ondina Operational Routes

Based in Sorong, the boat sets sail on captivating routes across pristine Indonesian waters. Ranging from Raja Ampat‘s breathtaking coral reefs to the wonders of Cenderawasih Bay, Komodo, North Banda Sea, Triton Bay, and Halmahera, each journey offers a unique blend of marine biodiversity, vibrant dive sites, and awe-inspiring landscapes. Prepare to be captivated by the stunning beauty of these remote destinations.

The Diving Experience

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.
