double cabin of the mv ambai diving boat The Ambai has been specifically designed for Scuba Divers, with a large diving deck and 3 dinghies for transportation, and is therefore a very good option for a Komodo Liveaboard cruise.

The living room offers divers some peace and quiet, whilst the relaxing sun deck is optimal for those wanting to soak up some sunshine.

The specially designed camera & video room should come in handy for all of the photo/video graphers out there!

Customer Review

“The MV Ambai has just about everything the most enthusiastic diver could need and beyond. Space, great material, fresh water rinsing tanks, nitrox, camera room and much more. We dove 3 to 4 times in a day but somehow it was always on a relaxed schedule and everything was running smooth. Never more than 4 divers per guides, this is definitely a big point for this boat! The local dive guides are very nice and professional. You can tell they are knowledgable, have experience and are dedicated to their work. We experienced good weather and the visibility under water was always fair or very good. We have seen plenty of stunning marine life. As for the boat, everything was great, lots of privacy. The spacious cabins have each their own bathroom with hot shower and AC control. They offer full board, including soft drinks and the food was tasty and various the whole time. It’s a beautiful yacht and the people on board were all great. It’s been an amazing week! Fully recommend!”

David

“Perfect! The Ambai is awesome and very well equipped. The cuisine was various and always super tasty. The boat crew was nice, competent and always putting on a smile! The dive crew is very professional and they take pleasure in sharing their knowledges of the sea life with everyone. I found that the camera room was a huge plus to have on board! Stocked with batteries and all kind of gadgets, it was very useful. Diving around Raja Ampat was amazing, many macro dives, always entertaining and beautiful.”

4 liveaboard reviews for “MV Ambai

  1. I did an 11 day liveaboard in Raja Ampat with Wallacea on the Ambai and it was wonderful! Cruise Directors Marko and Liina made everyone feel at home and organized a great trip. The diving was incredible, the boat was clean and comfortable, the crew was friendly, and the food was delicious. 5 stars!

  2. I am delighted with my cruise. The crew is excellent, very friendly, very helpful with everything. Thank you to all of them. From my point of view, the food was delicious. I liked it spicy as it was. The cakes were delicious as well! The Ambai offers space for everyone to fit in together. Thank you very much!
    And I loved the Diving, the excursions and the atmosphere. Thank for taking care of our gears after the dives and at the end of the cruise. It is so nice. Thanks for the hot chocolate after the night dives. Thanks for the smiles. Thanks to Marco & Leena. And thanks to all the crew. Annabelle, FRANCE.

  3. Superb newer boat, great service and comfy rooms!!! If you are a photograph like I am, you will love the camera room. It’s very thoughtful and great that they have that on the boat. Plus, you can look at your pictures on the big HD screen in the lounge. No need to say that the diving was excellent! I had a live show of many manta rays… Stunning and unforgettable.

  4. The first area of south Raja Ampat of diving note is Daram Islands. Like the entire area, the seas are warm and the area is filled with schools of fish and clouds of antheas. It is very remote and rarely dived except by liveaboard, so it is outstanding.
