    We were on cheng ho from 22-27th April 2018. the crew on the boat are very hardworking and amazing in making sure our comfort is taken care of. DM bawa, Junko and dika are great in taking care of our safety and making sure we see what we need to see at the dive sites. Especially DM wayan sumardika, very professional and hardworking in finding all the macro. Was really happy to take so many macro shots! Thank you cheng ho!

    A trip to remember Labuan Bajo-Komodo-Labuan Bajo (5N/6D), Indonesia in April

    The cabins are cleaned after you return from your first dive and delicious food ready to be served after every dive. The dive master was excellent spotter with the macro creatures. All dives are physically checked for currents before guests jump in water Safety was utmost concern.
