Scheduled, private charter available
The Coralia is the latest project by Papua Explorers, one of Raja Ampat’s finest resorts with an established reputation for exceptional service, quality and commitment to sustainability. The liveaboard collaborates closely with the resort’s Raja Ampat SEA Centre and is dedicated to protecting local reefs and communities. With its state-of-the-art facilities, the Coralia easily navigates the most sought-after areas of Raja Ampat and beyond, and offers tailored routes in search of the best conditions whatever the season.
Guests onboard the Coralia enjoy a 1:1 staff to diver ratio, guaranteeing personalised attention throughout the trip. While world-class diving is the region's main draw, the Coralia designs its itineraries to explore unique landscapes and cultures as well. There’s time for village visits, remote island hikes, kayaking and paddleboarding built into each schedule, or guests can kick back and enjoy the fantastic on board facilities, like the luxurious sundeck, massage spa, and air conditioned lounges.
Onboard the Coralia
The Coralia is a brand new 48-metre traditional Phinisi yacht, accommodating up to 16 guests in 2 twin rooms, 2 double rooms, and 4 Master Cabins with their own private open-air terrace. The spacious sundeck is furnished with daybeds and canopy-covered sofas, while the main deck features an air-conditioned lounge with panoramic windows and an audio/visual entertainment system. An on-board restaurant offers a choice of indoor or al-fresco dining, with local and international meals prepared by the Coralia’s experienced Ambonese chef. Snacks and fruit bowls are served throughout the day and there’s also a selection of beer, wines, and spirits available at the bar. Between dives, guests can take advantage of kayaks and paddleboards to explore secluded bays, or kick back and grab a massage at the spa on the upper deck. Hikes, birdwatching, and short viewpoint treks can also be organised.
Diving from Coralia
Coralia was built specifically for divers, featuring a shaded dive deck equipped with warm showers, a changing room, hangers, equipment storage, and 2 well-equipped tenders. Equipment rental is available onboard, including computers, and guests are advised to book in advance. 12-litre aluminum tanks are used, with DIN and Int adapters, and 15-litre tanks are available at an additional cost. Nitrox is free to certified divers and night dives can be organised. Underwater photographers are well catered to with a dedicated, air-conditioned camera room on the main deck, and camera rinse tanks and towels on the dive deck. Groups are kept small, with just 4 divers per guide, and a full-range of PADI courses is offered, from beginner to divemaster as well as a wide range of specialities.
Coralia cruises from Komodo to Raja Ampat, exploring the most exciting dive destinations at their peak - ensuring guests have the best possible dive experience. Itineraries are based on the diver's experience and conditions, and are ideal for visiting some of the more remote, and pristine dive sites.
- The Coralia's sister resort, Papua Explorers, is the perfect resort for a few relaxing days before or after your liveaboard cruise exploring Raja Ampat.
- The master cabins have their own private decks with spectacular views, making them some of the nicest cabins in Indonesia!
- Bring along cash for any alcoholic drinks, crew tips and for paying the park fees.
The Coralia was built to high standards of sustainability and constructed from natural materials by the Konju boat builders in Bira, Sulawesi. Laundry detergent, cleaning supplies, and the complimentary bathroom amenities onboard are all reef-safe and organic, and the crew limits single-use plastic where possible. The Coralia team also collaborates closely with the Raja Ampat SEA Centre, a conservation initiative that works with scientists and local community members. The organisation facilitates public education and hands-on projects aimed at local conservation and awareness, and conducting scientific research and restoration programs throughout the region.
