La Galigo

La Galigo is a boat made for divers, by divers. The concept of La Galigo was conceived back in the early 2000s when two avid divers wanted to explore some of the pristine reefs that call Indonesia home but found that all existing scuba diving options were often out of their budget. The La Galigo Liveaboard model is very much a friends and family affair, and trips are always focused on fun, guest comfort, and are exceptional value for money. Their head guide Fendy Donsu is a well-known Indonesian award-winning Underwater Photographer, with almost 12,000 logged dives. The dive team also have an unbroken Safety Record as they are equipped with the latest safety equipment plus radio and satellite communications.
