Samambaia is a magnificent Phinisi, a traditional Indonesian wooden sailing vessel, built and designed to offer her guests the world’s top-rated dive experience in Indonesia with absolute comfort, safety, and autonomy regardless of the remoteness of the dive site. Having had her maiden voyage on Nov 8, 2015, M/V Samambaia is the newest two-mast wooden Phinisi schooner to sail some of the most gorgeous diving areas of Indonesia. Climb aboard into sheer luxury and unparalleled comfort: their focus is the utter satisfaction of their guests.
With an overall length of 40 meters (130 feet) and a beam of 9 meters (29 feet), and catering to only 14 guests, the Samambaia offers 7 tastefully decorated Staterooms: 2 Double Cabins, 2 Convertible Cabins (double or twin), and 2 Twin Cabins on the lower deck, plus a beautiful 160 sq.ft. Master Cabin with stunning 180° sea views on the main deck. Each Stateroom has a private en-suite bathroom, individually controlled AC, 220V European standard sockets that provide 24h electricity source.
On board the M/V Samambaia, the 18-to-22 experienced, professional, and friendly crew are always on hand in order to help create the unforgettable journey. Guests are catered to with delicious and varied international cuisine prepared every day with locally sourced ingredients by their chef and their galley includes fresh ice-cream and daily baked bread and pastries. For relaxation, guests can choose the shaded sundeck and soak in the spectacular Indonesian views in their comfortable loungers, or enjoy a relaxing massage from the on-board masseuse.
Divers and snorkelers alike will marvel at the underwater beauty of Indonesia, with unique cruises to Raja Ampat, Banda Sea, Alor, and Komodo. Whilst the Samambaia Yacht is new, their crew and dive guides have years of experience in the area. They offer an impressive divemaster/guide to customer ratio of 4-to-1 ensuring the best service underwater both in terms of safety and enjoyment. Especially designed for their guests dedicated to underwater photography, they provide a camera room with separate camera work stations with integrated 110v and 220v charging station to ensure you have the space necessary to take care of your camera gear. They also have a huge diving deck with two hot water showers at each side of the deck and 2 large rinse tanks with separate compartments each: the smaller one for your masks and the bigger ones for sensitive gear like cameras, computers, and torches.
The Samambaia has two 21-foot skiffs which serve as tender-boats, each one capable of swiftly transporting 8 divers to any dive site within an extended, safe radius of the mothership. The same crafts are used for ship-to-shore transfers and any other conceivable recreational or support related activities. All of their skiffs are powered by 40 HP twin-outboard motors.
Divers can not only enjoy spectacular day and night diving, but a range of activities during the surface intervals such as scenic rides through lagoons and coves, trekking, visits to secluded beaches, and whale watching. Last but not least, ALL of their nitrox is free, just like the beer! Additional surcharges apply to on-board massages, wine and spirits, rental gear, Harbor/Port Clearance fees, National Park fees, and exceptionally to fuel dependent on sudden fuel price increases.
