KLM Mari liveaboard is a teak and ironwood traditional phinisi schooner offering diving cruises to some of the best locations in the 'Coral Triangle'. You can choose from short trips to 2 week charters around Komodo National Park, Raja Ampat National Park, Banda Islands, The Forgotten Islands, Alor, Flores and Ambon.

There is heaps of space aboard the 30 metre Mari for the 10 guests who are accommodated in the 5 upper deck cabins. The Deluxe king size bed cabins and Superior twin bed cabins are bright and airy and include safety deposit boxes for your valuables. All cabins have en-suite bathrooms, with basic toiletries. A laundry service is available for your added convenience during your Indonesian travels.

With 10 crew to only 10 guests you are assured of personal service. Diving these diverse Indonesian marine locations is via 2 dive dinghies, allowing for comfortable transfers to the dive sites. Diving is in small dive groups with a maximum of 4 divers to 1 divemaster. A bathroom is located on the dive deck for your post-dive comfort.

The open air social areas are the ideal spots to enjoy the tropical breeze and scenery. Between dives you can relax and catch up on some reading from the library or match your wits and skill against fellow divers with a friendly game of chess or backgammon. There are 2 sun decks to choose from. The smaller of the two is on the upper deck, in front of the bridge, has comfortable sun loungers and is partially shaded. The larger sun deck is on the top deck. Here you can laze on the matresses and soak up lots of vitamin D.

Meals are served on the spacious, covered deck. You can expect variety and fresh ingredients while dining onboard KLM Mari. The friendly staff may even request for your input in the menu. End the day with a chilled beer or cocktail from the bar and toast your Indonesian liveaboard diving adventure.
