Calico Jack may look like an old schooner, but was actually first launched in 2014. Like many Indonesian liveaboard diving yachts, Calico Jack is a Phinisi. This is a traditional style of boat mostly made in southern Sulawesi by skilled craftsmen. The classic styling is not only a proven design from centuries of sailing it also adds a wonderful ambience for the lucky guests who enjoy a diving trip or other type of cruise around the best areas of Indonesia’s vast archipelago. However modern-day amenities, which include safety & navigation equipment, air-conditioned en suite cabins and lounge, sun decks and dive station, are all present and in fine working order on this remarkable scuba diving yacht.

Unlike similar diving yachts of this size and at this budget level, Calico Jack has private en suite bathrooms in each of its 5 twin/double cabins. This enables each of the guests the maximum convenience and privacy. The bathrooms have hot & cold freshwater showers, and perfectly compliment the spacious and tastefully-decorated cabins. There are also two communal bathrooms with showers on the boat’s upper deck, ideal for guests to use immediately after each dive. Also on the decks of Calico Jack, there are several spots for guests to chill out alone or in groups. This includes from the very top of the boat where sunbathing, dolphin spotting or stargazing can be done in comfort and with ease. At the rear of the main deck are hammocks, a seating area and the dive deck. The rest of the main deck is taken up by the two main areas for dining or enjoying a movie. These include a sheltered outdoor area and an air-conditioned lounge. Guests can dine on the delicious food in either, and the food on Calico Jack has quite a reputation. Served buffet-style several times each day, guests are guaranteed to put on a little weight during each trip. The chef is both generous and experienced, and there are also snacks, fruits and drinks available throughout the cruise.

Bow-view-liveaboard-Calico-JackCalico Jack has two motorised tender dinghies, which are used to dive from and beach excursions. There are also sea kayaks, SUPs (stand-up paddleboards), surfing, fishing, and kite-surfing equipment for use when not diving, feasting on the fine food or relaxing on deck. The navigation, communication and safety equipment is all modern and new, including a life raft for twenty passengers.

Finally, Calico Jack chooses the best location to dive in Indonesia depending on the time of year. The management team know exactly when each area is least affected by winds, waves or currents, or where and when to find the best marine life.
