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.


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.
