Description

M/V Pearl of Papua offers fantastic diving holidays year round in Raja Ampat, Indonesia, home to the highest marine biodiversity on Earth

This variety of marine life makes Raja Ampat the ultimate diving destination. The 12 member crew of Pearl of Papua is highly knowledgeable and intimately familiar with Raja Ampat and strives to provide five star service.

What you can expect

As the name suggests, Pearl of Papua is a traditional Buginese schooner that specialises in dive cruises to Raja Ampat, Indonesia. For most of the year you can see this 28m Raja Ampat liveaboard cutting through the pristine waters of the West Papua Province. 

Pearl of Papua sets itself further apart from other Indonesia diving cruises by running shorter trips: from 6 to 10 Nights duration, in and out of Sorong. This makes it a great option for those with constraints on time or budget. 

Striving for good vibes and a relaxed atmosphere, the Pearl of Papua provides luxury at great value on board well-equipped vessel.  Pearl of Papua liveaboard aims to be your sanctuary at sea with its 7 cozy cabins. There are 2 Master Cabins with double bed or two single beds combination on the Upper Deck ; 1 Suite Cabin on Lower Deck with one single bed and double bed; 4 Standard Cabins with bunk beds in Lower Deck. All cabins on the Lower Deck have portholes and windows. The Upper Deck cabins have spectacular Ocean View windows.

All cabins  have: Individually controlled air conditioning, Toilet and hot water shower, Hand basin, mirror and towels, Round twin plug 220V mains outlet - 24 hours per day, Reading lights, Cabinet and shelves, Bedding, Fire warning system, Life jackets. The Suite cabin has a refigerator and daily fresh fruit included.

There are opportunities for onboard pampering from the resident masseuse (massage and spa), who can loosen those tight muscles and repair your body to feel like new again. The spa services are available in a dedicated spa cabin or outdoor on the deck with our portable massage table.

delicious and hearty meals served buffet style will maintain your energy levels

Part of the Pearl of Papua's philosophy is also that even when sailing the hidden corners of Indonesia, good food must not be forgotten, after all, an army (of Divers) dives on its stomach. The onboard Chef and two Stewards are also on board to attend your dining and cabin needs around the clock, Chef will prepare relaxing meals to make sure you remain full of energy for the next dive! The Pearl of Papua sets itself apart because you can enjoy great food from a buffet that can also offer Vegetarian food options.  Meals are Full board, including water, tea, coffee, juices, snacks between meals and after dives, soft drinks. Alcohol and other soft drinks are available to purchase.

Facilities and amenities on board the Pearl of Papua are selected to provide the most comfort during the length of your diving expeditions. The air-conditioned cabins with en suite bathrooms are sleek yet cozy, a sanctuary to welcome you home after a long excursion undersea. Our spacious decks provide enough room for everyone to laze privately and a group to mingle comfortably. Aiming to provide a luxury experience at a great value, Pearl of Papua features an air-conditioned Saloon/Dining area with entertainment facilities and a Sun Deck with chairs and mats for those who prefer to relax outdoors. 

Cruises on Pearl of Papua mean that the wonderful dive sites of Raja Ampat are now open to more people, since the shorter tours and affordable prices make it possible for many more Scuba Divers to experience this wonderful region. If that includes you then, with Pearl of Papua, the World is your Oyster!
