Calico Jack is a 30m liveaboard running diving safaris around some of Indonesia's finest regions. Considering there is a maximum of 10 guests on board there is plenty of room on this classic Phinisi schooner as it cruises Komodo, Raja Ampat and beyond.

The multi-lingual crew of 8 are on hand to look after you, so there is plenty of personal service. Guests can relax in the indoor dining area or more commonly on the covered deck, where there is plenty of lounging space and you can enjoy the open air and drink in the changing views of the Indonesian archipelago. You can enjoy the TV, DVD, computer and music system below decks or work on your tan while lounging on the sundeck.

All of the en-suite cabins are located on the lower deck and are air-conditioned and with double or twin beds. Constructed in traditional fashion from iron wood and teak, Calico Jack delivers not only a great scuba diving experience but will make you feel like you are cruising around these ancient islands as have generations before.

Customer rating - Excellent
"On the liveaboard, I rented most of the dive equipment and utilized all of the services organized by the staff, including treks on the islands, meals and snacks, reading books, etc. Everything was taken care of perfectly. From being picked up at the airport and taken to the boat, to the beautiful cabins, to every day's incredible diving and food, it was truly perfect in every way. All of the diving equipment was in good quality and the boat itself was in immaculate condition. There's not a single thing I can complain about." - , USA, 15 September 2015 ...
