KLM Sea Safari 8, with a length of 34m and a beam of 10m is a spacious liveaboard schooner, ideal for cruising in the vast Indonesian waters. This luxury schooner, built in traditional Phinisi style, comfortably accommodates up to 24 divers on liveaboard cruises around Raja Ampat and Cenderawasih Bay. Unlike with many other boats in this area, you can enjoy itineraries from as little as 6 nights so this is a great choice for those short on time or budget.

There are plenty of areas you can choose to relax in, and enjoy the high quality décor and ambience. You may socialise in the one of the 2 air-conditioned saloons. The main deck saloon has an adjoining dining area and is also a spacious and is enjoyed at meal times or simply for chatting over a coffee. The upper deck saloon is a spacious lounging area with wooden finishings, comfortable sofas and full entertainment facilities. Above this is the sun deck where you can work on your tan and observe the spectacular passing scenery of Raja Ampat.

Cabins are all en-suite and are mostly twins or doubles, with Deluxe double cabins on the main deck and Standard twin and double cabins on the lower deck. There is 1 Standard 3-share bunk cabin and 1 Standard 4-share bunk cabin. Photographers will appreciate the camera table and on-board computer for image editing. From the dive deck, sun deck, cabins and saloon, everything on board the KLM Sea Safari 8 liveaboard can be described as comfortable, well-appointed and most notably, spacious.
