Great staff but location was not the best.

The first dive, the beach cookout, the whale shark , and the site called Fishomania were highlights.

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.

Thank you to the cruise director and the crew of the Ambai for a memorable cruise. They were welcoming, warm, and extremely supportive, allowing us to focus on the diving. The food was delicious and there was always plenty of it. An incredible trip all round - a must for all serious divers!

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.

Excellent Liveaboard !!!

Definitely worth taking the big tour going to Misool and Raja Ampat north.Shadow Reef is a must !!! Lots of variety in the diving sites. Excellent staff and good guides. Ambai is a nice boat, very well rigged for diving and comfort. Diving deck (in the shade) and 2 relaxing decks with sofas and bean bags. Very good food as well, and in quantity. Thanks to Akim, the competent cruise director, the atmosphere is relaxed, yet very rigorous in safety and very efficient in the way diving is organized. On our trip, the majority of the customers were French. Thanks to Liveaboard as well, who traded this trip for us very professionally.

The diving is amazing, the visit to the cave and the Wayag humbeling, the space of the cabin and common areas luxurious, but most of all the hospitality of Jerome and the crew is unforgettable!

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.

Spectacular

Absolutely spectacular. The crew was very attentive, and hour-to-hour itinerary was well planned. Wake up at 7, dive, nap, breakfast, dive again, lunch, nap, dive, nap, night dive, dinner, repeat. I liked the camera room (fully stocked with batteries and extra gear) and the plan of getting to the dive sites. It was overall very efficient, and the dive guides are great. I would definitely take the Ambai again.
