Five-star service, five-star treatment and five-star diving.

The diving in Misool was world-class, as were our dive guides. The muck diving later on was fantastic and steaming up to and stopping and swimming on the Equator was a unique experience.

The best diving in the world!

The biggest schools of fish I've ever seen- a "tornado" of jacks, loads and loads of glass fish all around the bommies, and the most colorful, vibrant corals. Of all the places in the world I've dove, this was my most favorite and worth the 40+ hours of air travel to get here!~

Schools of bluefish swirling as we moved our arms. It was like they were hugging us.

We always beat the other boat's customers into the water. We had air conditioning in the cabins and so did the crew. Interesting land excursions.

Great boat, Great diving

My 2nd cruise in Raja Ampat. Glad to see some of the dive sites are still supreme! Ilike is overall a very good boat. The price is not cheap for us but considering the number of dives, it's actually good value. Cabin are communal areas are comfortable, although hygiene department is a bit of a let down. I love the Indonesian crew. But the boat is clearly more catered towards European guests, and has a healthy dose of sophistication. Although I cannot say I love this vibe, but at least I understand this is the mater of personal taste. The cruise directors and two out of three divemasters are European, they did a fantastic job in organizing everything from divings, activities to other daily matters.

Vivement retourner sur le Ilike !

Les 30 mantas à Manta Alley, le poisson-grenouille et ses petits yeux, la splendeur des sites ayant chacun quelque chose de spécial à découvrir, les soirs à regarder les étoiles filantes sur le pont, les briefings précis et fun à la fois, les youhouhou du crew à notre retour de plongée, la beauté du Ilike toutes voiles dehors, le soin avec lequel chaque membre de l'équipage fait son travail, à commencer par le directeur du Liveboard, David, qui crée une ambiance à la fois chaleureuse et professionnelle. En bref, ce fut 12 jours de joie et de magnifiques plongées
