MSV Amira is a traditionally-built wooden Phinisi schooner constructed in 2010. This beautiful, high-quality boat runs Indonesia liveaboard diving charters in West Papua (Raja Ampat) and to the top dive destinations of Komodo and the Banda Sea. At 52 metres in length and with a maximum of just 17 guests on board, you are guaranteed space, comfort and top-quality service as you explore the very best diving in Indonesia.

The vessel is elegantly furnished with wood panelling throughout that enhances the feeling of luxury. There are double and single cabins on the upper deck and twin bed cabins on the lower deck. All of these high standard, spacious cabins have private en-suite bathrooms and air-conditioning.

The large dive deck has been designed to give each guest plenty of room and their own individual storage space. Diving is conducted from one of the 3 dinghies, each equipped with radio and emergency oxygen tanks. In addition each scuba diver wears an ENOS locator device for safety purposes, and nitrox is available to those who are certified.

When not diving or enjoying one of the delicious meals, guests can relax in the air-conditioned TV lounge area, in the shaded open-air area, or on the huge sundeck equipped with chairs and loungers for sun-lovers. The attentive, enthusiastic cruise staff are always on hand to see to your every need.

Other facilities include a massage service, dedicated camera room with storage area, a computer room with CD/DVD burning facilities to edit and save your photos. If you like to travel in style and enjoy the finer things in life on your Indonesian liveaboard diving holiday then a stay onboard the Amira is perfect for you.
