Amazing time exploring beautiful Raja Ampat below and above water, with fun, friendly and informative crew!

Incredible dives with a huge diversity of marine life. Cruise Director J does an awesome job of organising and entertaining everybody and is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about marine life, providing an added dimension to each of the dives. All the guides are very experienced and adapted dives to each group, ensuring everyone was happy.

New boat with amazing boat crew

7/8nights Raja Ampat Central/North. The boat is relatively new with an amazing boat crew (very courteous, also up for a chat, playing cards or chess). The common areas are very functional and fit perfectly for resting, dive briefings and eating. The dive deck has a spacious setup. Diving dinghies are in good shape. Dive guides come from Sulawesi and have very good eyes to spot critters. This was my second trip to Raja and I was surprised to see stunning muck sites (which this boat/crew probably tend to cater more than others, out of 23 dives, 5 were night/muck) and lots of special critters (e.g. wonderpus, flamboyant cuttlefish, blue ringed octopus).

Unvergessliche Taucherfahrung bei angenehmer entspannter Atmosphäre und guter Organisation

Highlight war das Leben unter Wasser. Vor allem die Manta Rochen und die Artenvielfalt bei jedem Tauchgang. Dennoch scheint es bei dem Holzboot üblich zu sein, dass die Kojen regelmäßig stark nach Schiffsdiesel riechen und es bei Regen vom Dach her durch Tropft.
