The SMY Oceanic is your liveaboard specialist in the area between Bali, Komodo and the remote islands at the South end of the Banda Sea
Sailing aboard the SMY Oceanic, you will have the opportunity to explore the most exotic and remote islands of this unique location - places where you would possibly find it extremely difficult to get to by yourself.
You will not embark one of those Luxury Cruises where everything is fixed to timing and planning, we offer you a more adventurous trip with lots of the unexpected: Unexpected diving encounters, unexpected beautiful beaches, unexpected quiet and traditional villages, unexpected on-board service.
What you can expect
SMY Oceanic has been completely renovated and the boat team is waiting to offer you 16 years of their experience in the Indonesian Underwater World.
SMY Oceanic is a traditional Phinisi, 28m long and 6m wide. This gorgeous boat sails all year long between Komodo & Rinca Marine National Park: North & South. For all of you who really want to get to know his Majesty in full and specially all of you who have already dived the North and Central part of the Straits but have only seen a glimpse of the Southern mouth facing the Indian Ocean because weather can get nasty down there in the summer months. Now is your chance, as the Oceanic will take you to the spectacular dive sites at the southern mouth of the straits during the months when weather is at its best and while all the other boats are in Papua.
We have tried to create a very comfortable accommodation to be our home and basecamp as we sail and dive from island to island. Affordable, comfortable, informal and relaxed. Flexible yet profesional. We have focused in what really matters and left aside superfluous and expensive luxuries.
On board the SMY Oceanic you will have enough space to relax alone, or to share a nice chat sitting in the cool atmosphere of our A/C Dining Room or enjoy a full moon evening from a comfortable hammock on our spacious Sundeck before taking a rest in your A/C Cabin.
In the unlikely event you don’t feel like diving, swimming or snorkeling, we can arrange a walk through isolated forests, along deserted beaches or in the undisturbed villages we will come across during our sail.
This is the newest member of our family: The Oceanic liveaboard. She can comfortably accomodate a maximum of 12 guests and provide them with an excellent service thus turning into the best option for a full boat charter with your friends, family, or dive buddies from your dive club…etc.
