Marvelous diving, friendly and competent crew, pretty boat, and surprisingly good food!

Our nine-night itinerary allowed more diving and relaxation than typical seven-night trips. The boat schedule was good, with dives at 7:00, 11:00, and 15:00. We found many fantastic macro creatures during daytime dives, including pygmy seahorses, and both night dives were outstanding. A few dives had higher current, which challenged some on our boat, and the water was a bit colder in the southern part of Komodo National Park - we were happy to have brought 5 mm wetsuits in addition to our thinner ones. The two land adventures were fun, as were the mealtimes, including special steak night, burger lunch, and hot pot dinner. The best part was the super-friendly and competent crew, especially our dive guide Pablo and the hilarious cruise director Tony. It was absolutely worth it - highly recommended!

Fabulous week in Komodo

We had a fantastic week aboard Emperor Raja Laut diving in Komodo for our honeymoon. Flor and Sophie guided us safely through 20 dives at a variety of sites with knowledge of and respect for the local reefs and wildlife. We saw a huge diversity of wildlife, including manta, turtles, octopus, cuttlefish, and countless nudi, among others. Sprinkled in were land excursions to see a local village, a pink sand beach, and two hikes - one with an incredible view of Padar island. The boat staff was lovely and kept us comfortable throughout our stay. FYI there can be strong current at some sites in Komodo, so this is not an itinerary for freshly certified divers.

Went as a 'snorkeler only'. Dive guide was not available to join however when possible and necessary for 'buddy' a member of the service crew was always willing to join.

Seeing the dugong! And of course the corals and fish in a color spectrum unlike any other
