Close to Raja Ampat and the largest national park in South East Asia, diving in Cenderawasih Bay offers a unique and unforgettable experience.
The area is one of the few places to dive with whale sharks. The bay is home to a large population of these gentle giants, and divers have the opportunity to get up close and personal with them.
The bay’s crystal clear waters offer excellent visibility, making it a popular destination for underwater photographers. In addition, the diverse marine life, including colourful corals and schools of fish, provides plenty of photo opportunities.
Cenderawasih Bay is also home to several World War II wrecks, including Japanese ships that were sunk during the war. These wrecks provide a unique opportunity for divers to explore the historical remains and witness the marine life that has made them their home. The bay is also home to several indigenous communities, and diving in Cenderawasih Bay provides an opportunity to learn about and interact with these cultures. As far as remote goes, this is it!
The magnificent Dewi Nusantara is a triple-masted, 57-meter-long wooden schooner carrying you to the best Indonesian dive destinations in spacious luxury.
The vessel was awarded ‘the best dive liveaboard in the world’ in 2018 and has been admirably fulfilling the company’s mission to offer the best dive service in the best locations available. Safety alongside luxury is at the forefront of this elegant five-star schooner experience.
The Dewi Nusantra caters to up to 18 guests in 8 stateroom cabins and 1 rather famous master suite. The staterooms, which are located on the lower deck, are all air-conditioned and have been specially designed by a French interior designer.
The master suite occupies the width of the stern and has a 180-degree view of the scenery. Measuring in at 46 meters square, it is possibly one of the largest liveaboard cabins we have come across, and it even has a spa bath.
Food onboard the vessel is fantastic, and special attention is taken to those on an adapted diet. The menu runs the gamut from local cuisine to Western and international delights.
The meals are buffet-style, encouraging guests to socialize and share after a day of unique diving. The Dewi Nusantara kitchen is committed to providing excellent quality cuisine. We will make sure your plant-based diver needs are taken care of.
The Dewi Nusantara won the world’s best dive liveaboard for a good reason. It gets our nod as one of Indonesia’s most luxurious scuba yachts.
