A most civilised approach

At 33 meters long and 8.5 meters wide, the MSY Seahorse offers plenty of space for pleasant cruising and diving.  You'll find a beautifully appointed, partially covered lounge area in front of the bridge on the phinisi's mid-deck section ... above the interior lounge / dining area.  Located on the front of the main deck is your dive deck while cabins are situated on the main and lower decks..

Your day will begin with a breakfast of fresh fruit juices, toast, coffee/tea, cereals and eggs any style to satisfy your morning hunger.  After the first dive there's a full breakfast, and in between eating and diving there will be spare time to relax on the sundeck, read a book, have a chat or check out the mornings digital photos on your laptop.  After the third dive of the day, you can enjoy a lazy late-afternoon on the sundeck, lounging back and soaking in the wonderful landscape with a cup of coffee or tea and some snacks.  Dinner is prepared after the night dive, and the food is excellent. Hailing from a long tradition of big family homecooked meals in Spain, the crew takes pride in offering you a delicious menu every evening.


Seahorse's itineraries include:

Raja Ampat  ...  Komodo  ...  Banda Sea  ... Triton Bay  ... Sulawesi  ... Halmahera

A Typical Dive Day on MSY Seahorse    .... open

In Indonesia, night falls at 6 PM. After 4 PM the light starts to decrease and the crew consider this is the limit for a day dive. That's why divers have to start early enough to enjoy a long diving day, allowing them to do the 3 dives in good conditions with enough surface intervals.

Morning wake-up : 6:15 AM. Light breakfast, dive briefing, go to dive.
First dive departure: 7 AM. Returning from the first dive, breakfast will be served.
Second dive call : 10:30 AM
Second dive departure: 11 AM. Returning from the second dive, lunch will be served.
Third dive call : 2:30 PM
Third dive departure : 3 PM. Returning from 3rd dive, some snacks will be served.
Night dive call : 6:00 PM
Night dive departure : 6:30 PM. Returning from night dive, dinner will be served (8:15 PM if there is night dive, 7:45 if there is no night dive)

Your cruise logistics

RAJA AMPAT ... from late September to early June
Fly to Jakarta or Bali  
Bali and Jakarta are the recommended International airports if your journey is limited to your cruise.
Fly from Jakarta to Sorong  (gateway to Raja Ampat).  Ambai cruises depart from Sorong on the North West part of the Indonesian West Papua.  It is well served with many daily morning flights from the main International Indonesian Airports such as Jakarta, Manado, Makassar, and Denpasar. Sorong is Jakarta time + 2.

KOMODO  ... July to October
Fly to Bali  Denpasar Airport (DPS) in Bali is recommended for Komodo National Park cruises (although Jakarta will also work). Curise departure and arrivals alternate between Bima, Sumbawa (BMU) and Labuanbajo, Flores (LBJ) so a round-trip domestic flight will be necessary. Several airlines serve these cities: Garuda Indonesia, Wings Air, & Nam Air. Check-in time: not later than 13:00  Check-out time: not later than 13:00

There are multiple itineraries in these regions with a wide variety of travel options.  Please contact us for specific information on these itineraries.
