La Galigo Liveaboard Review

Diving Squad Rating:



La Galigo is a beautiful, Traditionally Built Phinisi Vessel – created especially for scuba diving Liveaboards.

It’s ideal for slightly larger groups, with 7 beautiful wooden cabins – including “The Suite” which even has it’s own balcony.

Great for: Slightly larger groups, luxury accommodation and vintage vessel vibes

Trip Lengths: 8 – 12 days

Max Guest Capacity: 14

Tours Raja Ampat: October – March (tours other parts of Indonesia for rest of the year).


La Galigo is actually the cheapest of all our favourite mid-range raja ampat liveaboards, yet it offers some of the Most Beautiful Cabins.

The Master Suite has a HD TV, PS4, 270 degree ocean views and even it’s own balcony. 

The other cabins feature the same gorgeous wooden interior and come in a range of options.

Some feature ensuite bathrooms and epic sea views.

The outside leisure deck is the perfect place for guests to relax in reclining chairs and catch the sun as they take in the stunning views.

Inside is the Spacious Main Deck & Dining Area which has a large TV and speakers for movie nights.

Having it’s own camera station, also makes the La Galigo ideal for Underwater Photographers.

La Galigo’s knowledgable and friendly staff provide a fun, safe and enriching experience. They love throwing the BBQ beach party!

Guest Feedback:

Sylvie BCanada
"The overall experience delighted me. When I thought "that last dive was the best dive", it was out done on the next dive. The hard working crew went out of their way to insure everything was perfect. If there was a small glitch (because nothing in life is perfect), they would see to it immediately. The ship is beautiful and easily felt at home for 8 days."

Samual M from the United States said:

“Raja Ampat is amazing! Beautiful healthy coral, lot’s of schooling of fishes of all sizes, from tiny bobtail squids, cuttlefishes, nudis, pigmy seahorses, all the way to huge mantas, lobsters and even a crocodile we saw (safely from the boat).

The team did their best to make our visit there as productive, safe and relaxing as possible.

We saw and experienced everything we expected, and some things we didn’t expect. Our dive guide was very experienced and safe (kept divers safe from currents and kept coral safe from divers)”
