Mermaid 1

  • Mermaid liveaboard


Built in 1999 and just renovated to the newest standards this steel motor ship with a length of 27 meters has room for 15 diving enthusiasts. Mermaid 1 enables individuals and groups to discover Indonesian greatest scuba diving sites at budget prices without cutting down on safety nor on comfort. Trips vary from 10 to 17 days. Our destinations include Raja Ampat, Banda Sea, Ambon, Alor, Maumere, Komodo, Bali, Halmahera and Lembeh.


Onboard we have 8 individually climatized cabins all with private bathrooms, flat screen TV and plenty of storage facilities. The top-grade master cabin (12sqm) has a king-size bed. The deluxe cabins (10sqm) are located on the main deck and have king-size beds or large twin beds. These, as well as our single cabin (7sqm), feature refrigerators and windows with panoramic views of the spectacular seascape. Belowdecks we have budget cabins (8 sqm) with a single bed and a bed bunk. Provision of bathrobes, toiletries and soft towels is part of the service for all our guests.


Our dedicated crew of 17 speaks English. It’s their pride and joy to make your liveaboard- and diving experience memorable for life. The well-appointed lounge is situated next to the restaurant on the upper deck. The spacious sundeck is equipped with cushioned beds and an awning for those who enjoy the shade. Several outdoor lounge areas are furnished with comfortable sofas, perfect for après dive relaxation. We recommend a treatment from our masseur.


Breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks are served as a buffet in the restaurant. Our kitchen will surprise you with delicious and healthy dishes from Indonesian, Thai and western origins. Beer and wine can be ordered from the bar (not complimentary). If you have specific dietary requests, please let us know at the time of your booking.


The Mermaid has a massive dive deck with rinse tanks, showers and a practical camera table. Each diver can choose to dive with either air or nitrox. Courses are available on board and we have a rental service for all diving and snorkelling gear you want to use. A zodiac will bring you from the dive platform to the site of your choice. Our experienced divemasters will support you in every possible way.

A land excursion to the famous komodo dragons is optional.
