A beautiful boat in a beautiful location

We visited a variety of sites, enjoying both macro life and pelagics like mantas and sharks. When we were in south Komodo, we were virtually alone; only one other dive boat was in the area. The reefs were so healthy with brilliant colors and abundant life. Our divemasters, Sophie and Flo, were wonderful hosts and guides. I enjoyed our shore excursions, hiking a tall peak for a great view and also seeing the Komodo dragons in the park. My week, we only had 7 divers out of the 12 possible, so we got very individualized service (and I had my own cabin!).

Recommended for
The reefs were in fantastic shape, our divemasters were fun and knowledgeable, and the boat was newly renovated.

What an adventure!

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

Recommended for
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.
