The Mantra is a traditionally styled Indonesian Phinisi liveaboard offering diving cruises in Komodo National Park, Alor and Raja Ampat.

Vessel Layout

The Mantra is very unique but can be compared  with the Adelaar and the Manta Mae, which also host only a limited number of guests. Yet they provide the same great luxury service on their spacious dive boats.
