THE MSY ILIKE

MSY ILIKE is an Indonesian traditional Phinisi, built 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. The yacht is powered by 2 x 320HP marine engines, allowing us to cruise at an average speed of 7 knots across Indonesia. As a guest on board of this charming vessel, we guarantee you a unique liveaboard and spectacular diving in the rich waters of Indonesia.

Linen is changed mid week.

AMENITIES

Indonesian and International meals will be served in the spacious Saloon with open kitchen, or in the outdoor sitting area at the stern of the boat, well protected from the wind while sailing.

The comfortable Dive Deck on the front of the boat is one of the most spacious on any Indonesian liveaboard. As a Diver you can choose to dive on Air or Nitrox from our membrane Nitrox compressor. Between dives you are invited to catch some sun on our Sun Deck, where you will also enjoy spectacular sunsets, sipping a cool drink!

THE ROUTE FLORES-ALOR

This is quite a special trip that visits very remote places where not many people have dived.

Flores, the scenery above water is also spectacular as we can see 3 volcanos from our anchor place.

Here we can find beautiful coral walls with overhangs and crevices, where you can find the tiniest pygmy seahorse to white tip reef sharks sleeping in the corals.

In Alor we find yet again great diversity, from vertical coral walls to a sloping gardens covered in anemones for miles on end.

We can dive an active volcano were you can see hot air bubbles coming from the rocks.

Expect to see some dolphins or even whales welcoming us into the bay.

With a bit of luck the coolers currents bring us the Mola Mola.

Alor, has world class muck diving in the bay, many different ghost pipefish hide in the mucky bottom, many nudi's and all families of scorpion fish even the elusive rhynopia we have spotted here.

Dive sites have spectacular drop offs, walls covered in black coral bushes that have been over taken by white anemones.

We have been very lucky to spot hammerheads
