MV Mermaid 2 Liveaboard - Indonesia

The Mermaid 2 is a steel-hulled vessel built in Thailand in the year 2000. She is 115ft (35m) long with a beam of 12ft (7m). She has ten cabins taking a maximum of 20 guests onboard. Eight of the cabins are on the main deck (deluxe) and two of them are below decks (standard). They offer the same amenities, but the cabins below decks have no picture windows.

Her engines are powerful enabling her to make good speed no matter what the weather. She's a stable vessel and comfortable all of the time whether underway or at anchor. She has electricity 24/7 and all the cabins and common areas are air conditioned.

During the summer months, she dives out of Komodo National Park in Indonesia. Her trips depart from Benoa harbor in Bali. During the winter months she dives in the Andaman Sea off Thailand's West Coast.

Roomy and Spacious

Her eight deluxe cabins are all air-conditioned. Every cabin will have it's own private bathroom and shower. All of the cabins have a larger bed below and a more narrow bed above in each cabin, and each have their own sink and vanity mirror. The bathrooms are not huge but now offer complete privacy with no shared doors. Her budget cabins offer a better price point, and are furnished nicely and air conditioned as well, and are located on the lower deck. She features a large, well appointed interior saloon on her upper deck and just outside, an outdoor dining area where dive briefings can be done in comfort and quiet. She also has another interior saloon or dining room on the main deck forward of the guest cabins. On the forward top deck she has a tanning area/ sun deck. On this boat, even with 20 persons plus crew, there is plenty of room to spread out and enjoy yourself when you're not diving.

Professional Crew

Mermaid 2 always has professional staff managing the vessel operations and the diving. The qualified Thai crew generally runs the vessel while the Western staff are in charge of the diving to ensure proper communications. She usually has one cruise director, and several dive staff both Thai and Western depending on how full the boat is. You can dive with a divemaster all of the time, or in buddy teams depending on your experience level.

More Than Just Hot Air

Mermaid II has an excellent air station, and all tanks are filled in the racks without removing your gear, so there is no moving around once your equipment is set up and you're settled in. She also carries Oxygen for blending Nitrox to whatever mixture you desire. Her well-trained gas blender ensures your safety. If you are not Nitrox certified, take a course on board. It's easy, and once you understand and appreciate the advantages of Nitrox, it's difficult to go back to only air. Computers are for rent on the boat as well for those of you who don't own one.

Well-designed and Clean

Everything is well organized and clean, and her practical layout allows the guest to get from one part of the boat to the other very easily. Her 115ft length makes for plenty of room wherever you are. The crew's quarters, galley, and storage area are located on the lower deck, away from the guest areas (except for the standard cabins), so your privacy is ensured.
