WAOW is a very large (60m L.A.O / 46m L.O.D) luxury diving yacht that sails around the Indonesian archipelago, offering scuba diving cruises at the perfect location throughout the year. Instead of focussing on one area, WAOW trips are designed to be wherever the diving is best in Indonesia for each month of the year. Trips range in length from one week aboard to nearly a fortnight.

The size of WAOW would suggest that there are many guests on board, but the maximum capacity is just 20 on scheduled trips, or up to 24 on charters. Not only are the cabins spacious, the communal areas are also much larger than the boat’s competitors. In addition to the 40m² dive platform, WAOW has a dedicated camera room, with charging stations and a computer. There are two large sundecks (50m² & 40m²), and a huge shaded outdoor dining/socializing area (120m²) and a smaller one at the rear of the boat. However, most guests choose to enjoy the sumptuous meals in the air-conditioned restaurant, which is complemented by the beautiful lounge.

The delicious food on WAOW is something that the management, chef and whole crew take great pride in. A delicious mixture of local and western cuisine is on offer, and special dietary needs can be catered for. In fact, those who charter WAOW can even opt for a French chef! Snacks & fruits are available throughout the cruise, in addition to four hearty meals served each full day. It’s almost guaranteed that guests returning from a week or more aboard WAOW will not have lost any weight!

The cabins on WAOW really need to be seen to be believed. There are three levels of luxury, with the least expensive still considerably larger and more luxurious than the best cabin on many other boats. The cabins are designed for two guests sharing twin beds or a double. Some cabins have an extra single bed, too. Each cabin is air conditioned & en suite, with hot & cold freshwater showers. All cabins have a wall-mounted flat-screen tv, sofa, writing desk, lots of storage space, Wi-Fi, & LED lighting. Their design is tastefully artistic, and blends character with convenience & modern amenities.

WAOW-Liveaboard-dive-boat-Indonesia-KomodoThe deluxe cabins are 24m² in size and located on the lower deck. The ‘Superior cabins’ are on the main deck and have their own private outdoor lounge area. WAOW’s master cabin is on the upper deck and offers the ultimate in luxury, with a private sundeck. The cabin is 45m² and beautifully appointed.

Such is the space and luxury on WAOW that guests could be forgiven for skipping the occasional dive, or even forgetting that being underwater is the main purpose of each trip! There is wifi on board, and a massage service. In addition to SUPs and canoes for guests’ use. Naturally, navigation, communication & safety facilities on WAOW are all modern & up to date, and crew members are well-trained and experienced for any unforeseen situation. Finally, there are 25 crew on board for no more than 20 guests on scheduled trips, ensuring the best service and safety at all times.
