Fabulous time on the Jakaré

We had a fabulous 12 days in the Raja Ampat area on the Jakaré liveaboard. We were warmly welcomed by the cruise & dive manager, the incredible Audrey. The crew was amazing, lead by Captain Thalib. They were all helpful, cheerful, adept at all they do--and delightful musicians, as well. The enthusiastic "hello, hello hello!" greeting everytime we returned to the boat from a dive or excursion never got old. Food was delicious and plentiful, and our individual tastes or food needs were met with pleasure. My wife and I booked the lovely cabin at the back and enjoyed views off the stern. We were some of the least experienced divers, and Audrey helped us out by making available, at a good price, a private dive master. Stefan really helped make our dive experiences safe and enjoyable. We loved the Misool area, especially. Can't say enough about how hard Audrey works, and how enjoyable she made our vacation. She's an amazing young woman, and because of her love for diving, we can't wait to explore more dive adventures. In the end, I'd like to give a shout out to Mael at Liveaboard.com who tirelessly answered all our questions, made sure we submitted all required information on time, and suggested to us the private dive master. She was great to work with.

A truly wonderful boat and crew

The Jakare was absolutely faultless from start to finish. Nicolas the cruise director is incredibly professional, accomodating and enthusiastic always giving brilliant dive briefings before each dive and is clearly extremely liked and respected by the crew. We dived with Manssu who was a dab-hand at finding all the hard-to-find critters in Raja Ampat and clearly absolutely loves what he does which is so important in a divemaster. As for the wizzard in the kitchen Chef Burhan, he really made us such delicious meals 3 times a day which were a very good reason to come up from a dive! However this 35m vessel runs and works as beautifully as it does due to a collective effort by all crew members who were all just a brilliant. This was a 10-day Raja Ampat cruise and culminated in an amazing trek through the jungle to see the Red-bird of paradise which is such a unique experience when visiting this region. Look no further!
