We did the southern Misool charter and the diving was epic. All the dive guides were top notch and went above and beyond underwater.
The crew catered to your every need. The food was excellent and the cabins were very comfortable.
The entire crew was exceptional. Aly was an amazing host and lead a team committed to making your experience memorable.
My dive guide was great and feedback from other divers was also very positive. The Komodo islands have pristine reefs and a variety of fish to see-
Boat was in top condition and food was very good!
A fantastic diving experience and the most helpful,friendly crew!! They went over and beyond anything one could possibly ask for. Fendi, was by far, the best dive guide and took special interest in every dive... Having learnt that he has had more than 5000 dives... I was inspired by his enthusiasm & his want to share with others the beauty of the macro world. We dived sites like Toko-Toko and the Three Sisters... Absolutely pristine!! Almost seemed like a private dive site! My deep dive spec went off like a dream.. All safety measures under control and well adhered to.
Needless to say.. Tom was the perfect host. It is apparent that he oversaw every aspect of the day! His penchant for small details and caring for the guests was transferred to his able team, carrying forward 'the feel good factor.'
Every meal was a real spread with something for everyone! Breakfast included bacon,sausages,eggs to order and an Indonesian dish!... For lunch there was chicken, fish, vegetables and a few other options... Dinner- which started with soup... included a salad,sautéed veges and two different types of meats. The deserts were to die for! A must mention are the banana fritters that await you on the dive deck! Chef Evan went beyond all our expectations at the beach barbecue where we were received with little candles dug into the sand... with the crew singing 'welcome to my paradise'... making the experience ethereal! (Hopefully not spoiling it for anyone who wishes to be part of a La Galigo trip)
The crew made a large effort to make everyone feel comfortable. Every sunset came with some lovely singing accompanied by a guitar & drums.
We did have some leakages after the rain, but Tom and his crew were quick to sort every problem out. At this juncture I must also point out that I found a little bit of a musty smell emitting from my pillow, which I brought to Tom's notice before I left for the first dive... What amazed and pleased me was that, on my return I found my pillows... back in my room... dry and sun fresh! �
It's these little things that floored me and I would definitely recommend La Galigo to anyone who's up for a good time... with fantastic diving, views,people and service.
See you soon La Galigo! With lots of love...
Short Review: Absolutely stellar luxury diving liveaboard operation from A to Z. Would highly recommend it to everyone and give 9-9.5 out of 10. In fact, I did Ultimate Raja Ampat trip in March 2017 and came back to do Ultimate Komodo trip in June 2017. Debating coming back for Wakatobi trip or another Raja Ampat trip (OMG, so amazing!).
Owners: It is obvious that co-owners Tom and Nick care deeply about diving, the boat, and the crew and make sure that everything is buttoned up and if any issues arise they are addressed quickly and efficiently. Between two of them they have extensive experience in hospitality, travel, and diving and they apply the know-how to liveaboard diving.
Small example, back in February I was browsing through different Indonesia liveaboard options. Somehow I ended up on LaGaligo website and since they had a chat option I decided to ask few questions fully expecting to "talk" to a bot. To my surprise a human answered, and within minutes I was on the phone with Tom talking details. There was no space on the voyage I preferred. Tom found an alternative (and arguably better) trip at a later date and mapped out a month worth of Indonesia diving logistics while I was waiting for my sailing. Awesome service!
Part 2: coming soon...
Great crew: went above and beyond what you would expect, good fun, good music
Amazing diving: stunning dive sites and great divemasters
all in all a 5 star trip

More About Us
La Galigo was acquired in Bali, a beautiful purpose-built ‘Phinisi’ style dive Liveaboard, handcrafted by the Bugis people of Southern Sulawesi. We pride ourselves on our Indonesian crew, who have collectively spent many years sailing and diving around a significant number of the 18,000+ stunning islands that make up Indonesia. Liveaboard diving is a popular way to explore the underwater world in Indonesia, and La Galigo Liveaboard Diving Raja Ampat & Komodo is the perfect vessel for such an adventure.
Our dive destinations are primarily split between Raja Ampat and Komodo, though we offer the opportunity to dive in Wakatobi, Banda, Ambon, Maumere, Alor and beyond.
We are predominantly a scuba diving liveaboard but we are happy to tailor bespoke charters on request. The vessel takes a maximum of 14 guests comfortably, and our accommodation is offered as seven cabins split over two decks, constructed with comfort in mind.
All of our Master and Deluxe cabins are available in either double or twin share beds with air-conditioning and ensuite fresh hot water showers.
your second home
We love our guests to feel at home, and we have several deck areas where people can relax, take in the exceptional surroundings or just read a book.
Indoors you will find our air-conditioned communal space, where our internationally trained chef will serve you a mixture of Indonesian and International cuisine.
Our communal lounge area is also filled with an extensive library of books, games and a TV and is the perfect space to share your experiences of another impeccable day’s diving.
Land tours are an integral part of our outlined itineraries, allowing you to experience the breathtaking beauty and diverse cultures that Indonesia has to offer.
Our purpose-built dive deck at the rear of the vessel allows plenty of room for gearing up and lots of camera space for underwater photography enthusiasts, and with the deck being at sea level, it is designed with guest comfort and accessibility in mind.
