Specifically built for dive cruises, Coralia is a diver’s dream come true!  The shaded dive deck has warm showers, a changing room, hangers, equipment storage, and extra towels are provided for diving.

Underwater photographers are well-catered for, with a dedicated air-conditioned camera room on the main deck, providing individual camera stations for charging, extra towels and lighting. The dive deck features a rinsing basket for cameras, as well as a camera table.

We dive in small groups with one dive guide accompanying four guests. Our dive team consists of our two experienced cruise directors who are also PADI instructors, and our three PADI certified local dive guides. Detailed briefings are held in our restaurant and equipment is set up by our lovely crew. The two tenders bring the divers to the best dive spots and after a quick current check by the guides, you can immerse yourself into Indonesia’s abundant waters.

After night dives we’ll get you warmed up with some hot chocolate and warm towels.

Nitrox is free of charge on Coralia, the tanks are 12-litre aluminum and we can cater for DIN as well as INT regulators.
