MS Ombak Putih dive boat review

The 42 meters Ombak Putih sails the waters of Indonesia as a traditional phinisi liveaboard vessel. Built in 1995 and thoroughly renovated in 2015, the Ombak Putih is not like the usual liveaboard. Indeed, it offers cultural immersion cruises, with snorkeling and other land and water activities available.

.

Boat Cabins & Layout

The Ombak Putih offer 12 comfortable cabins for a maximum of 24 guests. As a floating 5 stars hotel, the Ombak Putih features lavish and comfortable accommodations. The cabins are complete with a full en-suite bathroom, individual climate control and towel refresh service. Also, the cabins have ample closet space.

You can stay in the type of cabin you want as there are 3 different possible accommodation. Indeed, you can either stay in a twin-shared cabin with bunk-beds, in a double bed cabin or in the triple cabin. All rooms are located on the lower deck.

You can check the latest schedule & prices for this liveaboard here.

Vessel Layout

The sturdy Ombak Putih is a one of a kind ship in Indonesia. Indeed, there are only a few cultural excursions cruises around. The Adelaar compares to the Ombak Putih in style and in type of cruises. The Adelaar is a much smaller boat, perfect for small charter group and offers mostly scuba diving cruises. The Ombak Putih is the perfect boat for the non diver that likes snorkeling and simply, sailing.

2 liveaboard reviews for “MS Ombak Putih

  1. Hi!
    I’m Jacques, from France! I’m fascinated by the underwater world but I’m not quite a diver. Would a cruise like this one be recommended to me ? I would gladly snorkel and discover Indonesia’s remote areas culture. Are there other boat’s offering this but perhaps cheaper ?

    Thank you!

    • Hej Erica,Vad härligt att du gillar böckerna sÃ¥ mycket. Jag blir superglad av att höra du vill läsa i förväg. SÃ¥ känner jag ocksÃ¥ när jag läser vissa bÃdrgec.AnkÃ¥en¶e Loke sÃ¥ har du mycket att se fram emot i trean! Han har en större roll än tidigare, men mer än sÃ¥ avslöjar jag inte =)/Henrik
