Mari’s on-board facilities

The boat offers massive social areas so you can always have a sense of privacy during the cruise. Indeed, with a maximum of 10 guests aboard, the lounge, dining area and sundeck are definitely considered over sized! First, the open air dining area and lounge are located on the upper deck. Thus, they allow a fantastic panoramic view over the landscapes of Indonesia‘s many islands. mari liveaboard diving cruise

Secondly, there are two sundeck areas on the Mari. The first one is located at the bow, as pictured below, and the second one is on the very top deck. Of course, both areas offer a stunning view overlooking Raja Ampat, or Komodo, or any Indonesian region you’re in! You will find cozy loungers and mats to lay on and soak in the sun rays.
