Finished construction in 2012. Ambai is designed and built from scratch by Jérôme Doucet after 10 years on the sea. The pride of Wallacea, MV Ambai is conceived specifically for diving.

The convenience of the layout, the engine, and the facilities are custom-made for divers’ needs. MV Ambai is definitely something different. No pictures and words can describe the exquisite experience MV Ambai can give you for such attractive rates. You have to see it for yourself, and tell us what you think!


With more than 12 years experience exploring the Indonesian seas, Wallacea Dive Cruise invites you to discover Indonesia’s most beautiful diving destinations on our boat the MV Ambai. 

Ambai Indonesian liveaboard offers 8 boutique cabins with individually controlled air conditioning and ensuite bathrooms with hot water.

Photographers will enjoy a dedicated room for the maintenance and preparation of their camera.

At the rear of the main deck, a large dive deck offers an easy and direct access to the dive platform that can receive all of our 3 dive tenders at the same time

Our crew of 18, aboard the MV Ambai, is always ready to provide you the best service at any time. All you need to do is to enjoy the dives, and let them take care of the rest – even loading and unloading your heavy diving equipment. Towels and toiletries, soap, shampoo, and toothpaste are complimentary.

MV Ambai, our custom-built-for-diving vessel, started operations in July 2012.

Our 32-meter long wooden boat hosts 16 divers in absolute comfort. Traditionally built from Ironwood and other tropical hardwood, the boat is however specially designed to offer the best liveaboard scuba diving cruise experience.

The air-conditioned restaurant on the main deck also serves as the place to brief divers before each dive. There is a large flat screen in the middle of the room: photographers and videographers use it to present their captures and footage at the end of the day.

An inside lounge, large shadow deck areas, a Sundeck complete the common parts.
