The Damai is one of Travel Masters' favorite liveaboards. The Damai has set the new standard for liveaboard diving. They were the first ones to offer the boutique style liveaboard that has since been copied by many new operators; large boats with just a few guests. The rooms are so spacious you won't feel like you're on a boat! And, while Indonesia is synonymous with outstanding service, it's even better when you only have 10 people on board!

The boat takes a maximum of 10 guests plus a group leader and cabins are huge! Each room has individually controlled air condition units, shower, toilet and vanity. There is a desk for each person with reading lamps and 220V outlets. Meals are all customized to your individual needs and desires. They really strive to make you happy. There are at least 3 divemasters on each trip. The Damai also offers truly all-inclusive pricing. The only thing you will pay for on board is tips, t-shirts and wine. The rest is included – park fees, port charges, fuel surcharge, nitrox, laundry, sodas and beer, equipment rental and even massages! The Damai also has the most unique itineraries, combining old favorites with new sites. If you like this boat, you can go on it again and again and never do the same itinerary twice!

There are actually two Damai liveaboards - the Damai I and the Damai II. Both boats are spectacular with many similarities. They both hold the same number of guests, have a similar layout, offer the same amenities and offer outstanding service by an exceptional crew! But, the Damai II is the larger and newer of the two boats. While both boats exceed all expectations, the Damai II is truly in a class of its own! You'll just have to go on both boats and see what you think!

Travel Masters has run many trips on both of the Damai yachts. So, let us help you to figure out which boat and which itinerary is best for you.


These vessels have been specifically designed for cruising and diving in the tropical waters of Indonesia, with passenger well-being always the top priority. Equipped with the latest navigation, communication and safety equipment, the DIVE DAMAI fleet sets a new standard for safety as well as comfort, service and passenger amenities.

Of course even the best ship is only as good as her crew, and this is another area where DIVE DAMAI shines. Every trip is managed by highly qualified and experienced western cruise director, complimented by the ever-helpful Indonesian crew, all of whom are dedicated to making your diving holiday the trip of a lifetime.

About Dive Damai

RR-20121666DIVE DAMAI is a collaboration between two of Indonesia's most experienced liveaboard personalities, Alberto Reija Gracia and Tony Rubin Rhodes. Combining their experience with Indonesia's most experienced dive guide, Gusti Sukawana, and one of Indonesia's most experienced captains, Pak Satjanu, they conceived a new concept in luxury dive travel.

By halving the number of passengers to only ten DIVE DAMAI is able to double the passenger to crew ratio and thus offer a far more personal service to a much smaller group. The dive guide to guest ratio is a maximum of 4 guests to 1 guide. Therefore, both on board and during a dive the service is very personal and tailor-made to suit each guest.

DIVE DAMAI employs only the most experienced shore support team with years of experience in operating in Indonesia. The crew have all been selected and trained to the highest standards of service and safety.

DIVE DAMAI has eliminated all hidden costs. On board everything is included in the price of the trip. DIVE DAMAI service is as tailor-made to each guest as safety will allow. Our guests can choose when and how many times to dive, when and what to eat and have a choice more itineraries than any other liveaboard in Indonesia, probably the world.

Diving a la Carte is a new concept created by Dive Damai and directed to give the ultimate personal service.

Logistics permitting Dive Damai allows you to dive where and when you wish. It is our aim to bring you as much of the underwater highlights of our itineraries as possible.

DIVE DAMAI does not set dive time limits, and you are not told that you cannot redive a dive site, DIVE DAMIA will bend over backwards to fulfill your every wish to return to a location time and again.

But it's not just the diving...

DIVE DAMAI aims to satisfy every desire. That means you have a menu choice, if you have any special food requests we will do everything in our power to ensure your favourite foods are onboard.

A la Carte reflects your freedom to choose and DIVE DAMAI's desire to fulfill.


Chartering one of our vessels will give you the chance to select the route you prefer to do, we will tailor make the trip. The advantages are multiple; the chance to stay as long as you want in one spot without having to be worried about the preferences of the rest of the customers is an obvious one.

Being able to spend your diving holidays with your friends with the whole crew dedicated entirely to you...it doesn't get more personalised.
