    What an adventure! Raja Ampat, Indonesia in February

    The trip was fantastic! The crew were so friendly, the diving was unbelievable and the boat was stunning. Only a couple of downsides - we were given a bunk room instead of a double bed which was a bit disappointing (but of course easy to remedy on future trips) and the current was quite strong on some dives and we were often instructed to swim against it, which is different to my previous dive experience and wasn’t all that pleasant! Despite that last bit I would absolutely do this trip again, just something to be aware of! A bit of fitness recommended to keep up

    Melissa’s Reef dive - it was an aquarium under there. Manta Sandy dive - so many mantas! Putting up the sails on the last day and cruising through the sunset, it was stunning.

    Wonderful trip Raja Ampat, Indonesia in April

    While getting there is painful, the reef is still healthy and beautiful.

    Une croisière plongée très réussie. Excellente ambiance et équipage très dévoué Raja Ampat, Indonesia in April

    Plongées nombreuses sur des sites variés. Encadrement présent mais peu de contraintes. Bon niveau de sécurité. Les deux escapades à terre présentaient un réel intérêt. L'équipage fait le maximum pour rendre le séjour agréable tant au niveau de la prestation hôtelière que pour la pratique de la plongée
