The Seven Seas East of Flores: Ten Days of Living Like a Pirate

The Seven Seas is a traditional Phinisi boat from Sulawesi which has been outfitted as a liveaboard dive boat.

On the outside it looks like a pirate ship, but inside it's like a very nice, floating hotel. I had a chance to join the East of Flores trip on the Seven Seas in May 2017. We explored a different place every day, usually traveling overnight and arriving at dawn to the day's destination.

This gallery includes some highlights from life on the boat on the Eastern edge of the Indonesian archipelago

Check out the gallery below to see the photo highlights, or see the all the photo galleries from our East of Flores liveaboard dive trip - from scuba diving, to aerial photos, to freediving, to island culture, to portraits of the people who live in this amazing place. You can also see galleries from other Seven Seas liveaboard dive trips - my absolute favorite way to explore the awesome natural beauty and unique cultures of Indonesia.
