The boat and crew far exceeded our expectations.

The liveaboard experience was excellent. Wooden boats are different than steel hull boats, and Amira performed beautifully as a dive boat. The meals had something for everyone (including peanut butter and Nutella :-) and the seafood was outstanding. Diving and snorkeling was problem free, with easy access to great sites. As we sometimes sailed near and observed other boats, it was easy to be proud to be on Amira!

Recommended for
1) The boat, Amira, is large and very comfortable in every way. 2) The crew, both on board and in the Zodiacs, were unexceptionally helpful. 3) The other guests were pleased with their experiences.

Very nice vessel, good crew, but some improvements adviced.

We had a beautiful time on the Amira due to the charming and attentive crew, the wonderful ship with its large decks, huge cabin with bathroom and a few very nice divespots. Disturbing that every second dive had nothing to do with the briefing. Obviously the communication between the briefing person and the diveguides was not the best. „Premium“ needs more.

Amira in Cenderawasih Bay - Whale Sharks

Amira is a wonderful boat - plenty of space for 18 divers, also in between dives without feeling crowded. The crew very simply amazing and service minded! We generally enjoyed the food very much - but sometimes some dishes were too spicy for my wife. And the diving highlight was diving with the whale sharks - other diving was generally also good, but not spectacular like the whale sharks.

Die beste Zeit auf der Amira

Als Fremde gekommen und als Freunde gegangen. Wir haben die Zeit auf der Amira geliebt, neben vielen Mantas, Frogfischen von klein bis gross, Haien, Schildkröten und Oktobus, haben wir mit der Crew Freundschaft geschlossen, so viel zu lachen gehabt, Freude und berührende Momente geteilt. Amira bleibt uns als Boot mit der grössen Herzlichkeit in Erinnerung. Vielen Dank!
