La Galigo - Best Value "Suite" Cabin

La Galigo is a mid-priced Komodo liveaboard that offers awesome value for money when choosing its luxury  “Suite” which has a private balcony and heaps of space. 

At 33 meters long, this is a medium sized liveaboard but because it takes a maximum of just 14 guests, it actually feels pretty huge and spacious. 

Most Komodo trips with La Galigo are 5 nights long but can be up to 7 nights; on average there’s 3 dives a day and all Komodo trips also include a Komodo Dragon visit. 

Great for: Awesome Cabin, Beautiful Boat, Cool Trips, Couples, Social Vibes.

Trip Length: 5 – 7 Nights

Max Group Size: 14

La Galigo mainly explores the Central and North regions of Komodo where divers will see many types of sharks as well as manta rays, turtles, countless reef fish and all manner of macro critters over some of the healthiest coral reefs in all of Southeast Asia. As well as a Komodo Dragon visit; guests can also look forward to seeing thousands of fruit bats at sunset!

Onboard, La Galigo’s most notable feature is the insanely cool “The Suite” cabin which has its own private balcony, a feature usually only seen in much more expensive, luxury liveaboards. Furthermore, “The Suite” also features a state of the art HD TV; huge ensuite bathroom, private lounge with sofa and a truly colossal double bed. 

As for the other cabins; whilst they don’t having any private balcony or special TV, they’re still outfitted with beautiful wooden interiors, plenty of space, ensuite bathrooms, portholes and aircon. 

For common areas, there is an outside leisure deck which is the perfect spot to kick back and relax with a drink as well as a  spacious main deck and inside dining area with TV and Speakers.

La Galigo is also proud to be one of the only Komodo liveaboards with a dedicated diving platform towards the rear of the boat. There is also a camera station and separate rinse for underwater cameras.

It’s worth noting that there’s not quite as many extra activites with La Galigo compared to some other Komodo liveaboards – for example no kayaking or standup paddle-boarding like you get with Akomo Isseki and Adeelar – but this is relatively small stuff – you’re mainly there to dive right?!

"Lots of fantastic dives, each one in a different spot, amasing coral reefs and walls full of life, schools of fishes, mantas... A dream! Great atmosphere on the boat. Staff top ten! Excellent food, too much perhaps... Cruising through hundreds of small islands covered with dense vegetation, wild climbing on island to enjoy a top view, mesmerizing pirate landscapes. A really fabulous trip on an authentic nice boat La Galigo. We missed her and her staff already! We will definitaly come back to see again her red sails cruising the Raja Ampat marine paradise".

"We had the best time on the La Galigo back in September 2018! We took the Komodo trip and the entire crew made the experience beyond incredible! The rooms are large, the food was excellent and the diving was superb. We absolutely want to join a trip in Raja Ampat in the future aboard the La Galigo"!

"Visiting the Komodo Dragons, BBQ at the end of the week, diving with Manta Rays".

Nanae G from Switzerland said:

“All of the dive sites in Komodo NP were amazing but specially one dive site called “Shot Gun” was the best and so much fun—-this is a narrow passage between 2 islands. We wait for the tides to change and dive in with a reef hook ready, then wait in the middle of the channel to see all sorts of creatures flying by. 

A huge Manta flew by just 1m from me was an unforgettable experience! The sights of Komodo dragons on the island of Rinca on the last day of our trip was another highlight for me. The crew was so polite and well trained who pampered us from the beginning to the end of our trip. The equipment I hired was a top quality and the food was awesome”!
