Best diving trip so far

I had the best diving experience ever on this ship. Dive sites were out of this world, beautiful reefs and mantas. Also got to see the Komodo Dragons! Great guides, crew and food. Can't go wrong, would definitely recommend.

Amazing trip with Ikan Biru

We had 4 wonderful days on the Ikan Biru. The trip was very well organized and left nothing to be desired. The dives and dive sites were great. The crew served unbelievably good food and the service was also excellent. The guides also did a great job.

Magical experience, friendly staff, knowledgeable guides, and great value.

All the colour and diversity of the corals and fish and other animals on the reefs. Turtles and mantas!! And just the beautiful landscape of the islands all around is breathtaking!!

The dive guides take you to amazing sites and spot so many things to see that I would have missed. The staff take care of everything, the gear, the food, setting up beds. Sleeping on the top deck is an added bonus, very comfortable space with the stars above (there is a roof, don't worry), and sea breeze, while nice and cosy in bed, and because there is no need for air conditioned cabin, the engine can turn off at night so you can listen to the water.

Will book this one again in a few years

For me this was a family style, diving punk pirate experience. You get the real stuff for an affordable price, and they know how to plan their dive schedule so you get the most of it. If I can book it again in a couple years, I will.

Equally: the guides/crew, the food, and of course the dive sites

Great trip with really great dive guides

Amazing dive sites with really beautiful and healthy coral reefs. The dive guide was really great at helping us navigate the dive sites and the currents and conditions. The liveaboard had the most amazing food and the crew was lovely and constantly taking care of us. Had a brilliant trip!

The only way to experience Komodo

You get a big variety of dives - drift, strong current, chill reef dives, divers marine life, and night dives. You will never be hungry and the food is awesome. The staff (guides and crew on board) were top class. Sleeping on the deck was refreshing and really nice. Would definitely do it again.
