ABOUT LA GALIGO
Built by traditional South Sulawesi craftsmen in 2012, the 33m La Galigo dive liveaboard is a traditional two-mast Phinisi sailing boat. It was designed by an avid diver built with liveaboard diving lifestyle and comfort in mind.
La Galigo offers year round diving in Indonesia, including Raja Ampat, Komodo and beyond, offering divers some of the most bio-diverse rich waters available. As well as enjoying up to 4 dives a day, 3 day dives plus a sunset or night dives, we offer a number of land excursions to explore the stunning scenery, including trekking, visits to local villages, beach barbeques and visiting the indigenous wildlife.
La Galigo has 7 privately controlled air-conditioned, en-suite cabins each with an American style deep spring mattress. Cabins are either twin or double bed. For added luxury you can choose ’The Suite’, which has everything you need for your ultimate liveaboard experience, including a fridge, a 48” HD TV and a private balcony with 270 degree views.
The main deck is home to the spacious living and dining area, which offers a large TV, well stocked book case and many power points for charging and preparing laptops, camera and video equipment. This is also where will you enjoy the International and Indonesian dishes that the head chef has prepared. Vegetarian and Vegan requests can easily be accommodated with advance notice.
For further relaxation, there are outdoor living areas where you can lounge in huge bean bags or hammocks and enjoy the tranquil ocean breeze. The dive deck is located at the back of La Galigo with plenty of space to kit up and a dedicated camera area.
