Fabulous Crew, Amazing Food, and a Balanced Dive Trip

Diving at Puri Pinnacle and Shadow Reef. The crew of the Ambai are all truly fantastic, caring, thoughtful, fun, people. They made us feel like family and we left not only with an amazing dive experience, but friends.

Excellent, didn't want to leave and return home.

Seeing orcas and the captain moving the boat closer for everyone to have an upclose experience. Seeing the wide range of marine life from macro to mantas. Just loved the trip.

The dives sites were variable and full of life. Multiple land excursions were offered and was interesting. The cruise director was approachable and offered extra activities based on the divers interes

It was an awesome experience!

I had done liveaboards before, however never had such a good experience. I highly recommend Wallacea Dice Cruise to anyone who wants to dive in Raja Ampat or in Komodo Islands.

Great. I´ll repeat with this boat

Everything on boat was amazing. Dive sites were amazing, beautiful creatures, coral gardens, nice sun sets, landscapes, etc...Dive guides were very patients waiting us taking pictures and videos. Cruise director was responsible, helpful and fun. Crew was very friendly and helpful also. The chef was very careful about me with my seafood allergy. It was good don´t have WIFI on board to disconnect and can have chats with others guests. Thanks :-)

Great vessel & crew to support an incredible experience

The Ambai was perfect for 11 nights around Raja Ampat. Comfortable boat, spacious enough with great area for lounging in the sun. Decent healthy food, awesome friendly crew. Honestly I'm sure you could pay way more for some extra little luxuries but I found the Ambai delivered on expectations and I didn't want for anything, except maybe to upgrade the choice of whisky on offer (recommend JW Black Label or something.) Compared to the other options I feel like this was good value for money and a wonderful experience.

Die Crew und die gesamte Organisation der Tauchgänge war perfekt. Man merkt, dass jeder einzelne Spaß hat. Das Essen hätte meiner Meinung nach etwas mehr Abwechslung verdient. Insgesamt war es eine super Tour.
