So, What makes us so unique?
Here at the Duyung Baru, we have constructed an extremely practical, clean and efficient diving vessel, while also being fitted with all the modern conveniences of a luxury hotel. We designed spacious luxury cabins complete with air conditioning and hot showers so that you can live in complete comfort.
We have a beautiful kitchen serving international and local cuisine and added a comfortable wooden saloon perfect to sit around and enjoy your meals and chat with your fellow divers.
A top deck sun-lounge area ideal for sunbathing, relaxing and enjoying the island views. We have trained up our enthusiastic local crew, totaling a 5 member Duyung Baru team allowing us to provide a truly personalized service for our 6 guests.
Next we chose to focus on diving the stunning Indonesian archipelago, a true remote paradise, packed with 5-star dive sites to match our 5-star liveaboard and crew. Indonesia offers everything from healthy coral reefs to sandy critter hide-outs, with so much to see that one trip is never enough. Since Vovo has been operating in the Komodo park for 20 years he draws upon a wealth of knowledge to always deliver his divers to uncrowded dive sites as well as relatively unknown secret locations around the park. Thanks to our small groups we are able to run custom itineraries often deciding on where we want to dive the night before depending on what the conditions are and what our diver are excited to see. We are also lucky enough on deck to have a Nitrox blending system allowing us to offer Nitrox to our divers
