The KLM Sea Safari 8 is a traditional Phinisi Buginese Schooner built to bring snorkelers and divers to the underwater world of Raja Ampat. A large, spacious live-aboard, the Sea Safari 8 measures 115 (35m) long by 33 feet (10 m) wide and has twelve rooms that can accommodate up to 22 guests (more below). Safety equipment includes seven life rafts (four inflatable, 3 with motor), EPIRB, GPS, Satellite phone, smoke detectors and fire extinguishers throughout, and ENOS diver locator systems. Meals are a selection (and sometimes fusion!) of western, Indonesian, and Asian dishes and served buffet-style in the air-conditioned dining area. Non-alcoholic beverages are included, and there is a selection of wines and local beers for purchase. The adjacent lounge has plenty of couches and a flat screen TV and library complete with guidebooks to local marine life. The upper deck has a covered lounge area perfect for relaxing between snorkels or at sunset, and the top deck has lounge chairs for those seeking the sun.
