Shenron sails to the most breathtaking diving sites in Indonesia. Our Phinisi embodies the spirit of ancestral traditions, equipped with contemporary design, technology, comfort, and safety measures. We offer all our clients the essence of Indonesia and a unique opportunity to experience scuba diving in the Indonesian archipelago.
A liveaboard journey in Indonesia allows you to explore over 17,000 islands and diverse sub-climates. As Indonesia is vast and diverse, our expertise allows us to offer the right destination combined with the perfect season.

The liveaboard cruise in Komodo and East Flores, with Rinca, Padar, Alor, and more, is our favorite destination from April to November. Get ready to dive into its crystal-clear waters, pink beaches, and well-preserved coral reefs.

Known as the Ring of Fire or Spice Islands, the Banda Sea, with its island jewels and hammerhead sharks, is considered the best place to sail in October/November and April.


We drew inspiration from the finest phinisis and added our special, unique, and renowned touch. We have custom-built a magnificent wooden phinisi: Shenron, immersing you in the local culture while providing all the modern comforts you need on board. We designed spacious cabins that invite our 8 guests to relish the country they visit.

An indoor dining room was added for comfort during the rainy season, featuring a chef offering a fusion of international and local cuisine. As diving experts, we take pride in having the only Nitrox filling station on our boat, equipped with a top-of-the-line filtration system.

Both an outdoor deck and a sky lounge on the upper deck were added for sunbathing, relaxation, and enjoying island views. With our unique experience since 2009 in Indonesian waters, we’ll offer you an extraordinary diving experience, fulfilling your days in what we consider some of Indonesia’s most spectacular spots.
