Spectacular Diving with a Boat and Crew to Match

Diving in Raja Ampat was just awesome. Manta Rays are astounding. Good dive guides, great facilities. Camera Room is best I have ever experienced - I have dove all over the world, over a 1000 dives, this Camera room is like one someone would have on land versus on a boat. Rooms great, temperature control was amazing. Showers on the back of the boat - all 5 - what a pleasure. Oh - and I was worried about USA style power receptacles - the place is littered with them, European, US, very nice. Camera room had huge amount of Power strips to accommodate everyone. I have a big setup that has lots of things that need charging (Nikon D3X, Subal, Sea and Sea Strobes, Light and Motion Floods) and Laptop too. All fit great!! Rinse tanks too, and compressed air for drying! Travel to and from airport was easy and well organized. No waiting, just helpful folks moving luggage and people in A/C comfort. First class. Also - I love non-sugared Iced Tea on trips like these, I brought black tea bags and they had a pitcher of Iced Tea in the dining area for the whole 10 days we shared with everyone (it was popular). Very accomodating and nice staff.

Trip of a lifetime

Diving in Misool - overwhelming variety and number of fish Exploring lagoon and waterfall at coastline of Papua Exploring Triton Bay - incredible diversity of corals Meeting friends for life .... it is hard to determine the highlights of this trip as every day was a highlight in its own. Even though I'm very critical this trip for me was perfect in every aspect - the diving, the boat, the crew and their service, the food and the co-divers/travelers. I can only recommend the Blue Manta and would book it again anytime!
