Mermaid II Review

Diving Squad Rating:



Critically acclaimed for the exceptionally stylish and comfortable layout of it’s social areas, Mermaid II feels more like a high end luxury yacht than a mid pricer.

With an itinerary that usually covers Raja Ampat North and South, it’s perfect for discovering the region in style.

Great For: Singles, Big Groups, Non-Divers & Long Trips

Trip Lengths: 9 – 16 days

Max Guest Capacity: 18

Tours Raja Ampat: December – April. (Tours other parts of Indonesia for rest of year). 


The indoor saloon has TV & Video on demand, twin plush sofas and a library; it’s the perfect place to relax after a hard day’s diving. 

The outdoor “party deck” / shaded lounge is equally spacious and well kitted with lavish furniture and bar stools.

There’s an intimate indoor dining room with tables, panoramic view windows and a selection of fine wines. 

All the way up top, guests can soak in rays on the large Sun Deck. 

There are 8 spacious deluxe cabins with AC, wardrobes and ensuite bathrooms. In each one is a queen bed and a single. 

There’s also a budget cabin below deck with climate control and a shared bathroom.

Thai, Indonesian and Western Cuisine is served with Vegan and vegetarian options. 

Thanks to the massive dive deck and dive platform, divers can rest assured of easy exits and entries; ensuring a relaxing dive. 

Photographers are sure to appreciate the Camera Station & Separate Camera Rinse.

"First and formost, the diving was simply exceptional throughout the trip. The corals in Raja Ampat are pristine and varied and the colours amazing. The fish life was superb with great variety and plentiful schools ... some great manta dives also! Dive staff were very friendly and professional, and added to the whole experience. Boat crew were fantastic also and overall was an exceptional liveaboard".

“The crew went above , and beyond to make the trip a special experience for all the quests. The food was excellent. The dive briefings were very thorough, and each dive was a different exploratory treat.

I would especially like to thank Montse, the director, and Nico, our dive master. There are others that deserve praise as well, but I mention these two because of the most direct contact.

We put this trip at the the top of our bucket list., it exceeded our expectations. Life long memories that will never fade. This was Raja Ampat. Our next trip will include Komodo”.
