Description

The Indonesian Phinisi Duyung Baru offers personalized trips to the iconic Komodo National Park, to South Sulawesi and around the beautiful UNESCO Marine Biosphere Reserve of Wakatobi.

Duyung Baru is a traditional wooden yacht that offers adventure for a small group of Divers. This family owned operation has expertise in finding the most spectacular dive sites where you won’t see any other Divers. It is the perfect dive vessel for exploring Indonesia on the ultimate Dive Safari and experiencing Vibrant Corals, large Pelagics and greatest Marine Bio-diversity on the Planet.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

The traditional style liveaboard the Duyung Baru is 89 feet (27m) long and was refurbished in 2016.  She carries 5 experienced and welcoming English, German and Indonesian speaking crew members. Only 6 guests can be accommodated aboard this quaint and comfortable vessel. The Duyung Baru has been designed to be an extremely practical, clean and efficient diving vessel, while also being fitted with all the modern conveniences of a luxury hotel. The 3 comfortable cabins are perfect for sleeping and resting between dives and come in the following choices: 1 Twin cabin suitable for 2 people with 2 King size Single beds, and 2  Queen size Double bed cabins.

Each air-conditioned cabin contains an en-suite bathroom featuring an extremely clean shower and private toilet for our guests. Our cabins are maintained and cleaned each morning when guests are out on their first dive of the day.
