Manta Mae

  • Manta Mae Liveaboard sailing indonesian waters


This modern replica of the native spice-trading vessel enables you to experience the fabulous Indonesian culture and nature in an adventurous way. The interior of the wooden schooner is ornately decorated with natural indigenous materials such as coral, shells and fossil woods. The result is a breathtaking ambience, unmatched within the fleet. With its length of 30- and a beam of 7 meters, it caters 9 guests on diving trips to astonishing Komodo and Raja Ampat. These intimate trips may vary from 5 to 12 nights.


We offer a choice of 3 cabins with portholes for fresh air and daylight. The large master cabin (18 sqm) has a king-size bed and an additional single bed. The 2 deluxe cabins (10 sqm) have a queen- size bed and one single bed. All have en-suite bathrooms, AC, TV and a safe. The comfortable beds are made up with luxurious Egyptian cotton sheets. Daily housekeeping is part of the service.


Our cordial and professional staff consist of 6 Indonesian members and 2 western cruise directors. We speak English, French and Indonesian. Personal attention is guaranteed. The indoor lounge is well appointed with modern conveniences like aircon, audio/video entertainment and computers. Outside we have a leisure and sun deck, perfect for enjoying the seascapes, sunbathing, relaxing and outside dining. At a fee we offer internet, massages and a launderette.


3 meals and 2 snacks are served during the day. According to your preference meals can be enjoyed either family style or as plate service. If the cruise is booked by individual cabin we usually served by a single plate. Our kitchen prepares tasty dishes of local and western origin. Vegetarian alternatives are offered. Special dietary requests need to be notified at the time of booking. In the galley, we serve a variety of soft drinks, juices, teas and coffees from our espresso machine.
