Excellent experience all around!

We were looked after in every aspect of the trip start to finish and had a great time nonstop everyday. Couldn't have asked for anything more from the crew and experience.

Excellent diving and incredible food.

Manta rays, sea horses, and cuttlefish. Water was warm, and currents were strong but managable. Cabins were comfortable and more than roomy enough. Note that they don't pick you up from the airport, but they do pick you up from the hotel to bring you to the docks. Taxis are cheap and easy to find at the airport.

Excellent, varied diving. Very friendly divemasters who care about the ocean, and a chef who performs minor miracles in the kitchen

Incredible experience, would recommend to everyone

- Top notch diving equipment (most of it brand new), really really improved the diving experience - Guides were super helpful and knowledgeable, and really made the trip memorable - Boat had everything we could ask for in terms of comfort, good food, etc. Only negative: They allow novice open water divers on the same trip. We had a person in my group who didn't even know how to put on a BCD, and could not descend properly, maintain buoyancy, ascend properly, etc. and was just overall clueless. The divemaster was super helpful, but every so often we had to cut dives short/avoid areas because of this (Komodo has some nice dives with strong currents that we avoided), and it became a little tiring towards the end because something or the other was always going wrong...

An awesome trip with the best crew!

We did a 4 day/3 nights liveaboard with the Cajoma IV-crew and the instructors from Manta Rhei Dive Center in Komodo. We experienced a various range of sharks, manta rays and all other colorful fish you can imagine. The crew made us feel at home the whole time with everyday freshly prepaired food. Each time you came back from a dive, they had freshly towels prepared, coffee, fruit, etc. The kindness of the crew touched our hearts. The instructors explained each dive very well so everyone felt comfortable. Would definitely recommend this trip to all divers at any level!

Most incredible 4 days

Wow, what an incredible four days. The pictures of the boat don't do it justice! Just gorgeous and loads of space to accommodate all the guests. The bedroom (double cabin) was perfect and very comfortable as were all the above deck spaces. The chef was insane. 10/10. We were fed like royalty and all snacks and soft drinks included. Just booze to pay for. All the staff from Cajoma were brilliant and so helpful and friendly and the dive team from Mantarhei (Peter & Michelle) were also brilliant and Michelle as Cruise Director was fab, ran a brilliant operation and was super fun to hang out with too - Bananagram game was a real hit! We had some of the best diving we've ever done and saw some incredible things and had an unforgettable Manta experience. All the equipment was also 10/10. The two land excursions were also super and helped to add variety. Four days is the perfect amount of time without feeling "dived out" and this is incredible value for money. What's more, we also had an amazing group on the boat. Unforgettable. Thank you so, so much!

Amazing diving!

We really enjoyed the sunset hike and surface intervals relaxing on the boat. The diving was amazing - so many sharks, turtles and tropical fish! Two of the dive sites were very unique drift dives that I hadn't done before - the divemasters were great at helping us in the current. The food was good - you won't get hungry!
