Coralia is a liveaboard committed to creating sustainable human-nature experiences while conserving the oceans and developing host communities.
As a classic Phinisi it was built in Bira, Sulawesi by the Konjo tribe, who have been building cargo ships for centuries. Blending ancient techniques and wisdom with modern design and safety features, Coralia is one of the few Phinisi equipped with two engines.
Accordingly, we use reef friendly laundry detergent and bathroom amenities, biodegradable garbage bags, avoid the usage of single-use plastic, and make a point of employing and training locals on as many jobs as possible. We collaborate closely with the foundation Raja Ampat SEA Centre, which was initiated by our Papua Explorers Resort.
Our eight spacious cabins, designed by internationally renowned Deidre Renniers, offer modern comfort and style while incorporating traditional details. Each cabin is air-conditioned, non-smoking, and has a spacious private bathroom with warm freshwater showers, towels and hairdryer. Environmentally friendly, natural soap and shower amenities are provided free of charge.
In the cabin itself guests will find cozy beds, a sofa, working desk and closet. A safety box, regular and USB charging stations provide further comfort.
Our four luxurious master cabins on the main and upper deck additionally feature each a private balcony, sun chair and outside sofa, where guests can indulge in the tropical scenery and never miss a sunrise or sunset.
Our 4 MASTER CABINS on the main and upper decks are spacious and airy with private deck and a total of 30 m² space.
Our 2 DOUBLE CABINS in the lower deck are 24 m² and can be turned into a triple room when needed.
Our 2 TWIN CABINS in the lower deck are 22 m² and share-spots can be booked in these cabins.
Aboard Coralia you will be well taken care of by our dedicated local crew, with a 1:1 staff-guest-ratio. Our housekeeping will make up your cabin daily and also do a turn-down service in the evenings. A laundry service is offered against a small fee.
Coralia’s journeys are led by our very experienced cruise directors Debbie and Jerry, who have been leading liveaboard cruises all over Indonesia for more than 10 years.
Our competent captain Hengky from Flores Island has been working at sea since 1995, first starting off as a tender driver alongside the famous Larry Smith. Since then, Hengky has been a captain on ships all over the world, including Africa, Eastern Europe, Maldives, South-East Asia and the South Pacific.
Not only underwater is Indonesia a paradise – with Coralia we visit secluded places, viewpoints to indulge in spectacular panoramas, bird watching spots and small hiking trails, depending on the cruise itinerary. Kayaks and paddleboards will be available for you to explore the surroundings.
On some cruises we will have the opportunity to hear interesting presentations from marine scientists and other experts of the area.
With Coralia’s length of 48 metres, her decks are spacious and offer plenty of spots to enjoy the view, dine, sunbathe or simply relax. The sun deck is at the very top and the airy main and upper decks feature each an outdoor dining and a leisure area with plenty of cozy sofas and loungers.
If you prefer to cool down a bit, you can do so in the air-conditioned lounge and restaurant on the main deck. Here you will also find our fish ID library and audio/video entertainment.
We provide free WiFi for our guests on board, depending on the local cell phone reception.
After a busy diving day, you might use the opportunity to indulge in a soothing massage at our spa on the top deck. If you’d like little presents for those waiting for you at home, you can get them in our small souvenir shop on board.
Aboard Coralia the safety of our guest and crew is the highest priority, so we have installed comprehensive, modern safety features on board. These are regularly maintained, and our staff is well trained to use them in emergency situations. Please refer to the detailed list below:
