The Seven Seas Liveaboard is a 45m (148 ft.), traditionally built two-masted Indonesian sailing schooner built from the finest ironwood. Comfortably accommodating 16 guests in 8 staterooms with ensuite bathrooms, she has set new standards for luxury liveaboard safaris in Indonesia.

What to expect
The vessel and its operations are run by a wonderful Indonesian crew of 14 plus 2 Western Cruise Directors who have leading adventures aboard liveaboards in these waters for more than a decade on various vessels. With many years of experience organising adventure cruises both in Indonesia and on the World’s Oceans they are well trained, professional, attentive and safety conscious.
A spacious dive deck, multiple compressors, comfortable speedboats and first-rate dive guides promise you a World Class diving experience.
The Seven Seas features the latest diving and safety equipment, 3 dive tenders (2x twin 40hp 6.5m fibre boats for max. 6 divers and 1x inflatable single engine boat for max. 4 divers) and satellite communication.
A maximum of 4 dives per day are offered on board: 3 day dives and a night dive, except for the first and last day and when the boat is underway.
24 aluminium 12L tanks, and 9 full sets of rental dive equipment, snorkelling gear, wetsuits and free Nitrox are available.

The Seven Seas Liveaboard visits different regions in Indonesia during the best times of the year for each area. This should provide the optimal dive experience. In most of Indonesia water temperatures are between 27°C (81°F) and 30°C (86°F) all year round. In the south of Komodo, it is cooler. A 5 mm (1/5 inch) semi-dry is recommended for this region.]
A trip on the Seven Seas Liveaboard is a wonderful experience for any diver. Great comfort, high quality of food, fantastic crew and of course truly memorable diving are the highlights of any Seven Seas trip.
