Raja Ampat liveaboard, MSY Seahorse

On board this 33 metre long Raja Ampat liveaboard there are 8 spacious cabins all with en-suite bathrooms with portholes, a huge sundeck with plenty of lounging space and an air-conditioned lounge with a full entertainment system. All cabins except for Standard, have their own entertainments systems. The interior of the boat is mainly timber and is very well maintained.

Since the boat caters for both diving and non-diving charters it is designed so life at sea on board is as comfortable as it can be. And with up to only 16 guests attended by 12 crew members, you can expect plenty of personal service.

Between October and April, your West Papua liveaboard scuba adventure can be enjoyed in comfort and style on the Seahorse. Alor, Banda and particularly Komodo are visited during the period of May to October.
