Unforgettable experience on Calico Jack

The trip was perfect. The crew was very nice and helpful at every moment. The cabins are small but comfortable. There's a lot of space for the clients on the boat, that it's only for ten people, so you can enjoy a friendly and peaceful atmosphere. The divesites are beautiful and the dive operation is perfect. Five divers with two guides who take care of you. The food was really good and varied. We spent eight great nights there and it was an unforgettable experience.

Amazing trip on Calico Jack

I had an amazing time at Komodo – good condition and quantity of marine life. 6 days flew away in a blink of an eye. The crews on board were so friendly. They made I had the best and most memorable dive experience and always prepared and helped to have a pleasant dive. Food is so good and was cooked fresh on board every day. I took Korean food, but I did not need to eat it. The boat is a unique traditional Indonesian style one. There were very comfortable spaces for rest. Thanks for an amazing, unforgettable diving trip.

Very intense experience made possible by friendly staff led by a perfect organisator!

The diving spots, especially in the south in the now catch zones were wonderful, huge fish swarms and the most beautiful coral reefs, unharmed by global warming. The food was delicious, we enjoyed eating, sitting and talking together on the large table. Special thanks to the manager on the boat, to Julie for the perfect organisation and the love to any detail, to the whole very friendly crew, including captain, diving instructors, technician, cook and service staff and last not least to Sam, whose love to chess gave me personally a perfect round-up for the evenings. Worth mentioning also the effort the team did for the barbecue evening on the beach for an unforgettable experience! Highly recommended!

excellent diving experience

Ours was a real adventure - travelling from Kaimana - Triton Bay, with some long overnight sea journeys, we saw so much and had a wonderful trip. Words of warning - this is remote Indonesia - make sure you have time to spare - our flight from Sorong to kaimana was cancelled - make sure you have room to manoeuvre as we lost a day of diving ... Make sure your equipment is durable and well attached to your BCD, we had some breakages.. fabulous adventure despite this
