Guide to Liveaboard Diving in Indonesia

In general, the diving in Indonesia can be divided into two distinct seasons: November to May (prime season for diving Raja Ampat) and May to October (transition trips and Komodo season). However, keep in mind that most areas in Indonesia can be dived year-round and that there are more liveaboards in Indonesia than most other scuba diving destinations. This means that you'll find many different liveaboard trip variations, visiting/combining various different areas. To give you an idea:

November to May 

November to May is the prime liveaboard diving season in Raja Ampat. Most liveaboards sail and dive this holy grail of Indonesia in this time of year, with a smaller number of liveaboards staying in other areas such as Komodo.

Other areas visited by liveaboards during these months include the Banda Sea, Sulawesi (keep an eye out for a trip that starts or finishes in Lembeh or North Sulawesi, as it could mean an epic resort + liveaboard combo trip), Halmahera, and Triton Bay (often in combination with Raja Ampat).

June to October

May/June to September/October offer a wide variety of itineraries, often combining various different regions. These are the most popular time of year to dive Komodo and you can find many trips sailing the entire length of the national park from north to south.

Alor is also often visited during this time of year, often in combination with Komodo, or the Banda Sea. 

Many operators opt to sail the Banda Sea around the months of September and October, which offer the best conditions for diving and navigation. This also happens to be the hammerhead shark season of the area.

A small number of liveaboards stay in the Raja Ampat area during these months, visiting northern Raja Ampat and other "nearby" areas like Cenderawasih Bay, Banda Sea, and Forgotten Islands. 

Derawan a lesser-known but no less special scuba diving destination is another great area visited by a number of liveaboards in summer months.

year-Round Destinations 

You can find a small number of boats that choose to stay in one area year-round, especially in Raja Ampat, Komodo, and Wakatobi. This means that you dive destinations any time! However, keep in mind that for massive areas like Raja Ampat and Komodo, there will be months when you can't visit certain areas. Don't hesitate to drop us a line if you have any questions about liveaboard options in a particular area or in a certain month!
