Furthermore, the front of the vessel is home to a huge, partially covered, sundeck. Indeed, that’s where you’ll find a cozy seating space with bean bags and a sunbathing area with comfortable mats.

Also, at the aft of the upper deck, so right above the dive deck, you’ll find what they call a “chill out area“. Indeed, this lounge is just one more comfortable space where you can relax and take in the ever-changing views of beautiful Indonesia.

Vessel Layout

The KLM Sunshine is a rather spacious vessel considering it welcomes only 8 divers. It’s hard not to compare it with it’s counterpart which offers scuba diving cruises in nearby Raja Ampat. Indeed, the Raja Ampat Aggressor is also 30 meters in length but welcomes the double number of guests and still is considered spacious!
