Carpe Diem Phinisi is a 34 meter two-masted yacht, built in 2014 by Bugis craftsmen in the traditional phinisi style, using the finest teak and ironwood.
The yacht underwent a major enhancement in 2017 to make her suitable for full time diving operations and liveaboard trips under the watchful eye of her new owners, who are both passionate divers.

The Carpe Diem Phinisi crew love having children on board and more importantly, children love sailing holidays, and a cruise aboard the Carpe Diem is an amazing way to spend quality time with your kids. With stunning islands providing the backdrop, children will have the adventure of a lifetime just being on and around a "pirate ship".
Children love everything that the Carpe Diem has to offer from kayaking and fishing to swimming, snorkelling, and hoisting the sails. They also love helping the crew, steering the boat and jumping into the sea from the rigging!

Afternoon snacks, cakes, fruits and small bites are available the all day. Drinking water, tea, coffee and non-alcoholic soft drinks and juices are available at any time.
Dietary requirements can be catered for, but please give plenty of notice. The Carpe Diem Phinisi operates from relatively remote areas so it isn’t always possible to get specific ingredients, but they'll always try to do the best to accommodate.
