Each of the 12 twin cabins  has its own shower and toilet and its own air-conditioner, and there is a crew of 15 to take care of the passengers' needs  .  From November to February, the "Ombak Putih" sails to South Sulawesi, a sun drenched island that once drew explorers and traders from all parts of the world. Historic colonial buildings and forts evoke the shadow of the past – equally impressive are today's vibrant local culture and magical beliefs that still play an important role in everyday life. In the Lesser Sunda Island as well as around Sulawesi you'll also find coral reefs that are amazing both in their colour and in the variety of life they sustain. Therefore, these cruises offer new experiences and unforgettable impressions for every traveller to Asia.

Activities include snorkeling, hiking, jungle trekking and cultural trips. Handcrafted by experienced Indonesian shipwrights from the best available hardwoods all the way from keel to topmasts, she is the epitome of traditional beauty. It is unusual in several respects.  While on most traditional Buginese liveaboards the cabins are squeezed in below decks to make the diving operations economically viable, It has a totally different personality:  with just five staterooms on her main deck she unabashedly caters to the luxurious top end of the international dive market. This phinisi was built for comfort.
