Manta point made the whole trip

So many manta rays, incredible. Nice to see some turtles and a few sharks, coral was fair but nothing like raj ampat. The food was good. The only issue was there seemed to be a need to turn the generators off frequently, which means no ac and cabins get hot. The ship is aging as well

Trip of a lifetime!

We took a a gamble booking Situju at the end of the rainy season and it really paid off— we had the ship all to ourselves and didn’t experience any bad weather! Though it was VERY hot with little wind, we found reprieve with plenty of time in the cool water, seeing the best of the world’s marine and terrestrial biodiversity. Service, crew and guide were exceptional and took great care of us. They prioritized our safety and were extremely professional. They knew how to avoid the crowds at each of the dive and scenic spots, and were always willing to answer our many questions/curiosities— truly exceptional! Do not miss the opportunity to stay on Situju!

A fantastic experience and a great taste of what Komodo has to offer!

The visit on the last day to Komodo Island to see all of the Komodo Dragons was a true highlight! There was some fantastic snorkelling as well, and some gorgeous beaches. I also liked that they gave us an opportunity to do some small short hikes, to get on land and stretch our legs and see some views. Another really cool experience was watching what must have been literally millions of bats leave the mangroves in the evening - I only wish we'd parked the boat a bit closer to the island! The boat was very beautiful - I love that they kept it in the traditional wooden style - and, for a boat, comfortable enough! I appreciate that they kept everything clean and made the beds each day. I just wish there was better ventilation in our room, which was on the bottom of the boat - it got a bit stuffy and sewage-y smelling a couple of times. The food was plentiful and mostly pescatarian which I appreciated, though it wasn't super healthy, there was a lot of sugar and salt in the sauces. The staff were very nice and knowledgeable and friendly. It was also nice that there is space for only 8 guests - this kept the trip intimate. The length of trip was perfect to cover the major spots, have some short down time without being bored. I highly recommend this experience!

The activities were a perfect blend to give us a taste of Komodo, and the boat was kept clean and as comfortable as a boat can be.

Magic snorkling

We would appreciate a little more service. A question about whether you want a cup of coffee or something to drink sometime during the day would not be too much to ask. Then the ship was not in the best condition and the towels and bed linen were not the cleanest we experienced. The noise level was extremely high, as our cabin was located just above the engine room. We were the only guests and there was a much better room higher up in the boat that the captain chose to have as a bedroom. For the price we paid, we would have expected more.

We had a wonderful trip on the Situju 7 around Komodo. Our Cruuse Director and Guide, Peter was fantastic. His expertise on snorkelling locations and the different kinds of fish was terrific and much appreciated. We were absolutely thrilled to experience so many beautiful underwater coral gardens- spectacular fish every colour imaginable, mantas, enormous turtles, beautiful clams and every location we saw different types of coral/marine life. We loved meeting real Komodo dragons in their natural habitat and we were surprised and delighted at all of the birds on Komodo Island. The Situju 7 crew were amazing - great food, comfortable clean cabin and always there to assist with anything we needed. (Even my daily early morning coffee cheerfully delivered…thanks Jason!) Thank you to our Captain for his skilled navigating and to all the crew for welcoming us so kindly to the Situju 7 family. Thank you. We miss you already!! Jenny & Michael

Experience of a lifetime - we will be back!

Our 3 day cruise was INCREDIBLE. The crew were amazing, the food was great, it was so brilliant to be able to be on a small boat with only 8 guests because it meant we had so much more support and attention for all the activities. We had 4 snorkelling sessions across 4 very different sites and saw mantas, sharks, tonnes of turtles, and even a mantis shrimp and just so many beautiful fish. The island stops were breathtaking and the morning walk up padar was amazing. The obvious highlight was seeing 5 absolutely massive komodo dragons - even though it's breeding season in September and they're not always spotted then. We will absolutely be back, the crew and experience were phenomenal, can't rate them highly enough. If you're looking for a luxury cruise this isn't for you, the boat is smallish and the cabins are just suited for sleeping, but the experience is top notch and you won't be in your cabin anyway because you'll be too busy enjoying everything else! 10/10 guys thank you again for everything - we had a ball!

Cruise at Komodo

Unfortunately, due to technical problems on the ship, the cruise was stopped for 24 hours and after that was completed in a small fast boat. The location and itinerary would be surely worth; but the technical issue could have been managed with better diligence, the alternative boat could have been alerted before avoiding 1 day idle time, and the small boat didn’t allow to enjoy the last day as expected.
