A word from Dom :  "The well-known & highly-respected Emperor Fleet of the Red Sea & Maldives has taken over management of this gorgeous vessel in Indonesia. She's elegant & intimate ... a stunning way to see these regions. I've sailed alongside her ... but not aboard her ... yet. She's on my bucket list ! All our clients who have been aboard have come away with fabulous memories and positive reviews. Highly recommended.".... Dominick Macan

Regal & Stylish

Raja Laut means 'King of the Sea' and when stepping on board this 'schooner style' inspired yacht, built from tropical hardwood, you will experience a truly regal sense of sailing the Indonesian seas; freedom, style and comfort. 

On the upper teak deck are multiple beds for sunbathing or lounging, both in the sun and under shade.  A central dining table, where meals are served alfresco, is also located on this deck under a large awning.  On the lower deck, you can take a break from the sun and enjoy the fully air-conditioned lounge complete with 49" HD flat screen, movies, music & book library, board games and mini-bar.  The 6 cabins are all on the lower deck with port windows.  

Divers gear-up in the bow area of the main deck and access the water by a ladder at the side of the vessel. 

When possible, the crew will offer you opportunities to visit beaches that beckon for a cocktail party at the end of the day. Depending on the route, trip duration and weather conditions, 2 - 3 shore excursions are usually offered on each trip. These can include : seeing the Komodo dragons, visiting a pearl farm, climbing Mt Pindito, lagoon tours by speedboat and the caves in Misool amongst others.


Itineraries include the most popular regions of Indonesia - Komodo, Raja Ampat, Banda Sea, Alor and East Flores.  Trips to specific regions are, of course, based on the best time of year to experience the region's finest diving.

Your cruise logistics

We will provide all travel details at time of booking and would be pleased to help you book your domestic flights in Indonesia. The Indonesian airline schedules change frequently and we advise clients that it's better to avoid internet bookings as those bookings can be difficult to change.  If we help with your reservations we will follow you through the process and handle any changes that may occur.   Most travellers choose either Bali or Jakarta as their international hub ... although alternative options include Makassar and Manado (flights coming from Singapore).

Also, please note, the boat's scheduled departure time varies depending on current domestic airline schedules so they are not listed here. We'll inform you at time of booking and will keep you posted on changes. The following airport list will help you with general planning for your international flights.

Komodo & Alor & Flores: International hub Bali-Denpasar (DPS)
Raja Ampat: International hub - Jakarta (CGK)
