An Idyllic Dive Experience

The trip was excellent from start to finish. We were picked up on time at the wharf and taken out to the Adelaar schooner sitting at anchor. We met our fellow travellers, a small group of just eight in total, and the dive guides. After a day of cruising eastward in near perfect conditions we started the first of our dives off Pulau Mojo. Over the next 10 days we had 29 great dives (I missed one which would have made 30) including 5 night dives. We dived all around Komodo Island and adjacent islands. We were fortunate that every day was perfect blue skies with surface temperature of around 30 degrees. The water temp varied a little with most around 28 or 29 and a few down to 24 degrees. The food was plentiful and excellent. The dive guides very experienced, knowledgeable and competent. Some great shore excursions including to see to Komodo dragons. On the shores we saw wild Komodo dragons, monkeys, water buffalo and deer. There were also hot water dives off the Sangean volcano. My wife is a snorkeller, not a diver, and she had ample opportunity, along with other guests, to have some wonderful quality swims on beautiful reefs. A highly recommended experience with something for everyone, both diver and non diver.

Great trip but only if you can meet other guests with same level diving experience, otherwise they have to choose some dive site for low level then you will miss some best dive site.

Really fantastic - a once in a lifetime trip!

Really, really good. The itinerary was wonderful and the crew adaptable enough that if one place didn't suit, they would make alternative plans. The diving was totally spectacular and tailored to our requirements and shore visits an option and very good. The crew were professional, couldn't do enough for us and were so nice (and with a good sense of humour!). The ship was fabulous and in immaculate condition (we were given an upgraded cabin which was very nice indeed, but the other cabins looked good too). Thoroughly recommended.
