Merdeka 1 is a very special boat that offers up to 12 guests a wonderful experience on board. The boat is 26 metres long and was built from Ironwood at the world-famous shipyard in Sulawesi, Indonesia. There are 6 guest cabins, which all have air conditioning, and the double cabins also have private bathrooms. 

Another unique thing about this boat is the itineraries. The boat leaves every Monday morning, all year round. During the high season, you visit Koh Phi Phi & Koh Haa for 4 days and 3 nights. These islands are perfect for diving and snorkelling alike. And in the low season Merdeka goes to Racha (Raya) Islands for 3 days 2 nights.

Merdeka avoids the crowds by diving early in the morning, before the day trip boats arrive, and then usually after the day trip boats have completed their first dives. You can also choose to dive in the afternoon on Merdeka, but guests often choose a massage, kayaking, snorkelling, beach or cave visit, which are all free of charge. And if you have never dived before, you can try scuba diving for free during the cruise.

The whole experience is very sociable, personal and unique. The maximum number of guests per trip is just twelve, but the boat often sails less than half full. The crew and dive team are professional, and the food is simply delicious.

This boat is very popular for full charters of families or friends. And in these cases, the itinerary can be adapted, within reason.

Our group of 8 had the most amazing time and experience aboard the Merdeka. We got to relax, scuba dive a ton at some amazing sites. The food and accommodations aboard were fantastic as were the staff, captain and dive masters. We’d do it again in more
