If you want the ultimate in liveaboard luxury then look no further than Silolona. It really doesn’t get much better.
Named after the magical boat of a local legend, the Silolona was the brainchild of Patricia Seery, an American who lived in Indonesia for 20 years. With incredible determination, she saw her dream grow into an amazing marriage of traditional shipbuilding skills and the most up-to-date technology.
The result is 150 ft of floating perfection that now sails to a wide range of destinations within Indonesia and beyond including Raja Ampat, West Papua, Malaysia and Thailand among others. There is no better way to dive, snorkel or just visit the remote islands of Indonesia and beyond: simple.
With five luxurious suites, Silolona is predominantly available on a private hire basis though they do run expeditions you can join periodically throughout the year.
The diving completely depends on what time of year you choose to travel and where the boat will be but you can be sure the knowledgeable crew (16 plus an expedition leader…for only 10 guests!) will deliver the very best diving experience possible. But the Silolona boat is not just for divers as you will explore the best that land has to offer too. From spontaneous beach parties to picnics on the walls of an ancient ruins, a trip on the Silolona will allow you to explore the very best that both land and sea has to offer.
Why we love it
A crew of 17 tend to the every need of a maximum capacity of 10 guests onboard the Silolona liveaboard. Not a bad ratio.
