• waow liveaboard sailing Indonesia


Waow liveaboard is the result of a swiss entrepreneur having a dream: building a magnificent diving vessel with traditional craftsmanship and materials. And so this impressive iron wooden three-master was born. It sails throughout the Indonesian Archipelago with itineraries including Komodo, Alor, Ambon, Raja Ampat, Triton Bay and Halmahera. Scuba heaven is an understatement in these rich biodiverse tropical waters. Trips vary from 9 to 13 days for a maximum of 20 guests.


6 twin or double deluxe cabins (24sqm) are located below the main deck. On the main deck, we have 2 superior cabins (21 sqm) with a private outdoor space. Situated at the upper deck are another deluxe cabin (16sqm) and at the stern an unmatched master cabin (45 sqm) with a spacious private sundeck. Next, to the obvious facilities and services, our roomy and characteristic cabins have their own safe, desk, refrigerator, TV, media player and so on.


Up to 24 well-selected and uniformed crewmembers will provide the diving enthusiasts with incredible service during the cruise. Social areas include a bar/restaurant and a lounge with TV projection and music facilities. On deck are several partly shaded relaxing spaces with comfortable loungers and hammocks. A gift shop/boutique is available onboard. All guests have free email. Full Internet access is available at a surcharge. Should your diving muscles need some attention: our masseuses get you ready for your next underwater challenge.


The catering service includes 3 main meals per day plus snacks after dives. Our chefs serve delicious domestic- and western cuisine, to be enjoyed al fresco as well as inside the restaurant. A glass of wine is offered free of charge at dinner each evening. The full-service bar offers an excellent wine selection, cold beers, spirits and cocktails on sale. Tea and coffee, soft drinks and fruit shakes are complimentary. If you have specific diet requests please let us know at the time of your booking.


3 dive tenders are available for all excursions from the main ship such as diving, snorkelling and land visits. Small groups are accompanied by our passionate dive guides with years of experience. A dedicated dive area on the ship offers you all the space and state of the art facilities a diver could need, including nitrox and a special camera room. A selection of dive courses is available onboard as well as a diving equipment rental service. We have 2 kayak’s and 2 stand up paddleboards for recreational use.
