This 36-metre-long catamaran is the ideal vessel for luxurious Indonesia liveaboard diving safaris. Although the traditional phinisi schooners have their own unique charm, when you're sailing across the sea and diving up to four times per day, Solitude Adventurer is perfect! Large, stable, luxurious and with modern cabins & communal areas, there is no better way to enjoy liveaboard diving cruises of six days to two weeks in crystal-clear tropical seas.

Solitude Adventurer was very recently fully renovated to perfectly accommodate up to 18 lucky guests in luxurious cabins. On the boat's upper deck there are six deluxe cabins which have floor-to-ceiling windows, offering stunning views of the sea. Naturally, they're air conditioned, have en suite bathrooms and many other amenities, Two of the six deluxe cabins have extra windows on another wall, for even more light and a better view. On the main deck there's a 4-person cabin with bunk beds. This also has its own private bathroom, air conditioning, large window, desk & chairs. It's ideal for families, groups of friends, or solo divers who want the very best value for the cruise. And finally the master stateroom is also located on the main deck. This vast cabin has a king-size bed plus a single bed and lots of space to move around, plus an airy feel of spaciousness.

Comfortable communal areas on Solitude Adventurer are available both indoors & out. On the main deck behind the cabins there is a large dining lounge saloon. Here you can enjoy dive briefings, maybe a movie on the huge flat-screen tv, or just chill out away from the heat.  This saloon has lots of comfortable seating and is elegantly designed & decorated. But why come all this way to stay indoors? At the rear of the upper deck is a large outdoor lounge & bar. It is shaded, but gives panoramic views and of course a wonderful sea breeze. And on the top deck there's a large dining area for guests to enjoy the simply delicious cuisine that is served in large portions by helpful staff. In fact, although the vessel itself is wonderful, it's Adventurer's crew that makes your experience so special. Solitude Adventurer also has two areas for sun worshippers, so you can top up your tan every day. And there's a dedicated camera room, with multiple stations for keen and professional photographers to attend to their equipment.

Solitude Adventurer has a huge dive deck, with plenty of space for guests to store and put on their gear. Its surface is a tasteful, non-slip design. The compressors work quietly between dives and everything is ready for you to jump in the crystal-clear waters of Indonesia. There are two sets of steps down from the dive deck to platforms almost at sea level. And of course there are two motorised tender dinghies to drop divers off or pick them up when needed. Safety is the most-important aspect of these trips, followed closely by luxury & relaxing fun, but safety always comes first. Every diver has a visible & audible device to be found in case they surface far from the main boat, plus a GPS locator.

Solitude Adventurer sails around Indonesia, following the seasons for the best diving conditions. Raja Ampat & Komodo are the most-popular choices for world-class diving in Indonesia, but Maumere, Ambon, Lembeh & Halmahera all offer exceptional diving, too. Adventurer's itineraries perfectly match guests' needs with the best times of year to visit.

Booking / Enquiry

There are several different itineraries on Solitude Adventurer, because during the year the boat follows the best diving locations of Indonesia. And between the Raja Ampat and Komodo seasons, the boat offers 'crossing trips' which cross The Banda Sea, offering truly world-class diving.

In nearly all cases, guests are welcomed on board from 8.00am onwards on departure day, and sometimes there is an easy check dive in the afternoon. This depends on the location of the boat and at what time all the guests have arrived and completed check in & orientation. Then from the second day onwards there are up to four dives per day, except on the final full day on board which offers up to two dives to allow for off-gassing before flying. During the afternoon of the final full day the boat returns to the harbour while guests relax and the dive equipment is cleaned & dried. After the final night on board, disembarkation is in the morning after breakfast. Guests are clear to fly immediately after disembarking the boat at 11.00am.

The itineraries below are the most-common for each trip, but these can sometimes be changed for a number of reasons. Small changes are made due to weather & sea conditions, special marine life sightings, overcrowded dive sites, local-authorities' instructions, and the needs & requests of the paying guests. The safety & comfort of all guests is most important at all times.
