Phinda Homestead

Discover an even greater number of sites with 7-day plus cruises on Wakatobi’s luxury dive yacht Pelagian. With more space per guest than any dive yacht of its kind, Pelagian expands on the resort’s tradition of ultimate service and premier diving. Venturing into remote and seldom-visited corners of the Tukang Besi archipelago, guests enjoy cruises of discovery and adventure to distant reefs, verdant island lagoons and fecund muck diving sites.

With just ten guests served by an experienced international crew of 12, including a master chef, Pelagian offers a setting that is upscale and intimate. The crew is able to provide each guest with personalized attention, no matter if they are a first-time cruiser and snorkeler, or a seasoned dive traveler who appreciates value and excellence.

Pelagian is like a floating tropical boutique hotel with ever-changing topside and UW vistas. All of the cabins have been masterfully designed for comfort and aesthetics. Spacious floor plans, luxurious bathrooms and modern decor create relaxing environments for guests. Outdoor decks, lounges and dining spaces allow you to choose your level of social interaction onboard.

A stay at beautiful Wakatobi Dive Resort is recommended before or after your dive cruise for the ultimate vacation.

Master Suite

The beautiful Master Suite that spans the full width of the vessel (and occupies the entire bow on main deck) offers all the comforts of home and is the most spacious cabin available on any dedicated dive motor-yacht that we know of. A King Size bed offers relaxing and restful sleep. A generously proportioned lounge with a love seat provide the perfect place to watch videos on the HD flatscreen TV with Blu-ray DVD player, listen to music, read, or work on your laptop – in total privacy. The roomy bathroom is contemporary in decor and equipment, featuring top of the line rainforest shower and vanity fittings.

Superlux Cabin

The Superlux cabins offer fresh, bright spa-like environments for guests. From the spacious floor plan, to the wall art and the smallest decor details, these cabins evoke a feeling of tranquility and restfulness. Both of these cabins feature a walk-around, queen-size bed and separate day bed/generously proportioned extra bed. No need to climb over your partner in the middle of the night to reach the bathroom or in search of a drink!

Hanging bedside tables, floor-to-ceiling wardrobes and large drawers under the beds offer guests ample space to store personal items. Adjustable, high-intensity reading lights hang from the headboards for convenient night-time reading. Spaciousness extends into the beautiful bathrooms featuring a glass shower area, a big vanity with spa-like fixtures and great lighting. These cabins are, of course, air conditioned with private controls.

Location: Both of these cabins are located forward of the main salon and down a flight of stairs. They both have several portholes (closed on the pictures) that let in ample daylight.

Deluxe Cabins

The efficient layout of the deluxe cabin creates the perfect accommodation for a couple or two dive buddies looking for their own space. This cabin features two beds; one wide enough for two people, the other accommodates one person. plenty of large cupboards and a small loveseat offers a place to sit, read, and maintain your dive log or work on your laptop. This cabin also has a spacious bathroom with shower and toilet. Air conditioned with private controls, of course.

Location: Located at the stern of the yacht, this popular (and private) cabin has its own staircase accessed directly from the main salon.

Standard Cabins

For divers who tend to focus more on the boat’s common areas (and their diving) than on having the largest cabin onboard. The standard cabin features two single beds arranged opposite each other. Built-in storage is provided for stowing personal items. This cabin also has a newly-remodeled bathroom with shower and toilet and is air-conditioned with private control.

Location: This cabin is located on the starboard side of the ship from a separate staircase by the camera room. Perfect locale for the camera equipment tinkerer!

Pelagian cruises will show you a different kind of diving to that seen at Wakatobi resort, with muck diving par excellence. If you've dived sites around Wakatobi Dive Resort before, you’ll definitely want to expand your dive adventures to the reef systems beyond the island of Tomia. New marine life discoveries lay waiting for you and your camera. Exotic and rare marine life can be found on all dives, but if you love muck diving, sites such as Cheeky Beach and Asphalt Pier are sure to create excitement. If you like sheer cliffs and caves, Tanjung Batutoro offers something for both wide-angle and macro photographers. Pelagian gives you exclusive access to remote and untouched sites where you will have the luxury of being the only divers for miles around, able to enjoy your dive in secluded peace and relaxation.

The Pelagian’s two custom-made 18ft rigid hull inflatable (RIB) dive tenders are equipped with double 50HP four-stroke (i.e. quiet) outboard engines, tank racks and secure stainless steel ladders. These tenders are comfortable and very easy to enter and exit. Diving is always conducted from the tenders as they allow us to transport divers directly to the dive sites more accurately than would be possible from the main ship.

Tanks are quickly filled using whips from the Pelagian so there’s no need to take the gear off the tenders until the end of the cruise. Our friendly, camera-aware crew is always ready to lend a hand.

Wakatobi provides a direct connection between Bali’s international airport (airport code DPS) and the resort by way of a private guest flight. The flights are dedicated to serving only guests of Wakatobi Resort and Pelagian Dive Yacht, providing attentive onboard service and generous allowances for both checked and carry-on baggage.

Check-in time for our guest flight from Bali’s international airport is at 6:45am. Once we have you checked in, you relax in a VIP airport lounge for a light breakfast before boarding the flight to the resort (around 8:00am), arriving in time for lunch.

On the last day of your Wakatobi vacation our guest flight will return to Bali between 2pm and 3:30pm. We do not recommend anyone to book tickets to leave Bali on the day of return from Wakatobi until after 5:30pm. Flights to the resort generally follow a Monday and Friday schedule - depending on the time of the year.
