Budget Raja Ampat Liveaboard Reviews

  • Epica is without a doubt the coolest budget Raja Ampat liveaboard as well as the second cheapest. She is best described as a floating backpacker hostel for scuba divers and runs truly unique truly trips. Beginner friendly.
  • The cheapest raja ampat liveaboard available, Kira Kira’s itinerary includes kayaking, beach excursions, viewpoint treks and even a deserted beach BBQ. Despite the low cost, she has luxury cabins that are ideal for couples.
  • A traditionally handmade Phinisi vessel, Ilike is ideal for advanced divers wanting to challenge themselves, whilst exploring the very best of Raja Ampat.  Without a TV or WiFi, she’s also perfect for digital detoxes. 
  • Mari is the joint cheapest Raja Ampat liveaboard (tying with Epica), and gives superb value for money on account of hte fact that on select days you get to go on an extra 4th dive! Another beginner friendly option.
  • Mari has several great social areas including 2 sundecks, a bar and an outdoor lounge. This makes it a great option for groups with non divers. However, divers will still appreciate the awesome dive itineraries.
