Are you up for a real ocean adventure? Gaya Baru Indah is doing things differently, with an experience that feels more like a sleepaway camp for divers than a liveaboard. Choose from exciting seven to ten-day itineraries cruising in northern or southern Raja Ampat, or even combine the two. Of if you would like something a bit further afield, join a trip exploring the legendary Cenderawasih Bay or Banda Sea. No matter which voyage suits you best, you'll enjoy day after day of outstanding scuba diving, with small groups, excellent onboard facilities, and eagle-eyed local spotters.
If you enjoy meeting other divers, this is your boat. You won't find televisions, internet, or entertainment centres on this intimate sailing phinsi. Instead, between dives you'll stargaze, socialise, swap diving stories, and unplug from the ordinary world. Each day's activities are centred around exploration, with three to four dives per day in some of the planet's most biodiverse waters, plus snorkelling, shore excursions, and more! Gaya Baru Indah also offers opportunities to further your underwater education with nitrox courses and plenty of opportunities for one-on-one coaching.
