Euphoria Phinisi Dive Liveaboard – Raja Ampat Islands – Papua – Indonesia


Raja Ampat Islands are situated on West coast of Indonesian’s province West Papua. Although the islands are among the best dive spots of Indonesia, they are still wild, not flooded with a wave of tourists. Just a few villages are located on the largest islands.

Beautiful coral reef combined with a rich underwater life can easily guarantee amazing dives: shools of fish (f.e. tunas, barracudas, horse mackerels), large reef fish (like napoleons, snappers, groupers, sloth bears) and manta rays.

Safari covers North and Central islands: Mansouar, Penemu, Fam, Wayag, Waigeo, Batanta and many more small islands.

KLM Euphoria is a sailing ship built in traditional to South Celebes finisi style. It was made of the noblest species of tropical wood (teak, iron wood, merbau), modernly equipped and stylishly decorated. It has joined five the most exclusive liveaboards operating in Indonesia.

7 cabins on the second deck and 2 master cabins with its own terrace are ready for 14 guests.
