Ilike Liveaboard Indonesia



This Indonesian traditional Phinisi was build in Bira, a famous boat building village in South Sulawesi. It combines the luxury of a traditional sailing boat with the comfort of a modern yacht. In 2016, she was converted to a diving liveaboard, catering all the needs of the modern and demanding scuba diver. As a guest on board of this charming vessel, we guarantee you a unique liveaboard and spectacular diving in the rich waters of Indonesia.

We schedule top diving destinations like Komodo, Alor, Maluku/Banda Sea, Triton Bay, Raja Ampat and Cenderawasih Bay. Rich marine life, healthy corals and stunning landscapes may soon become your memories after a stay on board of MSY Ilike.

In general our schedule is as follows:

  • From june till september we operate in Komodo: most of our trips are a combination of Komodo NP (amazing reefs, Manta Alley, and not to forget: the famous Komodo Dragon) and Sangean island (a vulcanis island that last erupted in 2015: top class critter diving)
  • From november till march we operate in Raja Ampat: diving in the area with the highest bio-diversity in the world, huge schools of fish, and amazing macro.
  • Between the operation in both top class destinations, we schedule trips to remote area's like Maluku, Banda Sea, forgotten islands and Triton Bay. If you think you have seen it all, you better try this!

We look forward to welcome you on board!
