Indonesia Liveaboard Holidays

Coralia Indonesia Liveaboard


Here’s a liveaboard with a different concept! Coralia is a new boat by Papua Explorers, renowned for exceptional service, quality and commitment to protecting nature, conserving the oceans and developing local communities in Raja Ampat. Built in Bira, Sulawesi, by the Konjo tribe who have been building ships for centuries, they blend ancient techniques and wisdom with modern design and safety features.

All diving is done from two 8m fibreglass dinghies with outboards to get you to the perfect dive spot every time. There will usually be four dives a day including some night dives.

Underwater photographers are well-catered for with a dedicated air-conditioned camera room providing individual camera stations for charging, extra towels and lighting. The dive deck features a rinsing tank for cameras as well as a camera table.

Diving is in small groups with one dive guide accompanying four guests. The dive team includes two experienced cruise directors, who are also PADI instructors, and three PADI certified local dive guides. The two tenders take divers to the best dive spots and, after a quick current check by the guides, you can immerse yourself into Indonesia’s rich waters.

Nitrox is free of charge on Coralia; the tanks are 12-litre aluminium and both DIN and INT regulators can be catered for. A limited amount of 15 litre tanks are available upon request with a small surcharge. For those who prefer to leave their dive gear at home, rental gear is available for a surcharge but best to reserve it in advance. This is free for Papua Explorer and returning Coralia guests.
