Best liveaboard I've been on - top tier service, safety and quality - truly the four seasons of liveaboards!

4 dives a day, including some really beautiful and epic dives with tons of mantas, sharks, huge schools of fish, and super healthy corals that remind me of like the Great Barrier Reef or Sipadan 10 years ago! So happy to see thriving reefs and marine life still! Some of the dive sites were some of the best in my 200-300+ dive career!~ AMAZING service. Really did not need to lift a finger most of the time, though I also liked to be able to do my own stuff sometimes haha and not be completely helpless. They will help you zip up your wetsuit, have your wet wetsuits + rash guard folded and dried for every dive, and all your equipment in a specific cubby with a water basin for your camera and stuff below. They will carry your BCD and your tank for you, put your fins on for you, one time they had a fresh coconut to drink after a land excursion, hot chocolate after night dives (or in my case, tea since I preferred that!), etc. Basically 5 star service! High integrity operation. Paid for the internet and it didn't work half of the time (they spent a lot of time adjusting the satellite on the trip and found a new location halfway through that had MUCH better service), and they didn't charge me for it at all on the bill - I didn't even need to mention it. They clearly care about quality customer service and pride themselves on maintaining a high standard, which I highly respect and is just so comforting when most tourist outfits (diving or not) don't have the same integrity and standards. This is why they have so many repeat customers (I dove with a couple who were on their 3rd trip on the boat and I plan on pretty much exclusively ocean diving on Gaia Love in the future because I don't think I can stay on another boat after this lol...) Safety first! There were beginners on the boat, and I personally hadn't done heavy ocean diving in a year or so, as it was my first liveaboard in 5 years after taking a break from diving due to frustration with previous liveaboards. They took great care of me especially when I had a panic attack during a massive downcurrent... (was very scary but they were extremely on top of it in a way that made me feel just super safe and confident in their competence!) On my trip, the crew-to-guest ratio was 2:1 and the ratio of dive guides to divers is 1:3, which was AMAZING for quality of experience. Bed was also amazing and food was the best food I've had on a dive boat hands down... they made extra effort to accommodate a vegan on board as well and some of their vegan dishes I even ate and were top tier! tldr; HIGHLY recommend. worth the money and peace of mind and comfort 100%!

service (helped me adjust my mask bc have lots of hair, put my fins on for me, etc.), safety (ensured i was safe even when strong down current), and quality (food and living quarter quality is like a five star hotel!)

Unbelievable experience.

The diving was great. The service from the crew was fabulous. Every time we came back to the boat, we received a huge welcome. The staterooms are like a fancy hotel. Food and food variety was very good. Once in a life time trip and we want to go back.

Best Liveaboard & Crew

We had the best time despite the circumstances of being one of the last Liveaboards before covid19 pandemic. The boat was only half full due to travel restrictions and the staff were always pleasant and professional. Dive guides and crew were wonderful and attentive. The food was amazing with made to order breakfast every morning. Anto and Andy were the friendliest servers. We really appreciated that the food was served rather than buffet style. Giel and Gerry were nothing short of amazing. They went above and beyond to help ensure guests were able to leave Indonesia and return home. Having return guests aboard says a lot. This Liveaboard was top notch and it would be hard trip to top! I hope the owners know what a great crew they have and that their hard work is what makes Gaia Love great!
