    Budget liveaboard Raja Ampat - 9 Days, Indonesia in May

    Great friendly crew, great dive instructor, well organised, Food allright but not enough variation Not so good: All the pollution, smell of diesel, smoke, fumes, also visible for guests around the vessel, black stuff and oil pumping straight out in the sea, so you can't really swim near to the boat,, the engines and generator needs fixing, filters etc, and when you are in this natural reserve and you see the pollution that you are causing it dosent really make you feel as good as you should in this beautiful setting,
