Best liveaboard ever.

I just came from the trip „central and north Raja Ampat“ and am still amazed by the wonderful time I had on board. The ship itself is a traditional indonesian Phinsi and in very good shape (kind of new). The cabins are very cozy and with aircon, the entire ship is just beautiful. So is the crew. We did a kayak trip around Piaynemo and on other occasions you could take one of the kayaks or SUPs and just explore the nearby beaches if you wanted. The dive sites were wonderful and the diving procedure was relaxed. I did 19 dives on this trip. Having a very small group size of up to 8 divers is quite unique and definitely one of the selling points. So is the wooden boat itself. The boat is owned by two persons of which one (or sometimes both) is leading the trips. This makes it more interesting in my opinion. Unlike most other boats run by investors or big companies. Sodas included, food was delicious. I‘ll go again with them on another trip.
