Most frequently seen cruising with a maximum of up to only 6 guests on board in the Raja Ampat region, there are also some trips to North Sulawesi and Komodo in Indonesia.

Length: 24 metres / 79 foot
Beam: 6 metres / 18 foot

Enriched air nitrox is available here
West Papua liveaboards: the Mandarin Siren, Raja Ampat

Guests are accommodated in 4 cabins either single, double or twin share. All cabins have air conditioning with computer, TV, DVD and music in each cabin. En-suite bathrooms have hot showers with towels and bathrobe. Socialising tends to take place in the outdoor dining area, air-conditioned saloon with big screen TV and bar, or on the sun deck. All beers are free of charge on the Mandarin Siren.

The dive deck has plenty of room for guests to gear up with tanks filled in each station. All dives are done by tender and you can enjoy a post-dive, fresh water shower on the main deck. Nitrox is provided free of charge for EANx certified divers. For those seeking an intimate West Papua liveaboard experience, in small groups, the Mandarin Siren could be the ideal choice for you.
