The trip itself was great. Our cruise leader has chosen the best spots and as many as possible taking into account the schedule . He was always happy to share knowledge. also he made us enjoy wonderful shore excursions and share with us a lot of his free time.

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.

Mixed bag, great diving but leaking bottom cabins and varying standards of dive guides

3rd time back to RJ since 2007 but still good! Unexpected visit by a oceanic manta on a random dive site, (generally) great dive sites and a good land excursion. Local crew was great. Other 'highlight' to me was the increase in harbour fees / marine park fees / other fees etc in 2022 to 3.5million IDR (all-in fee charged by boat regardless whether the local authorities collect it from them or not) from 350,000 IDR back in 2007. Boat was newish but suffered from leaking bottom cabins and compressor break down so I think it's better to stick with a more established but slightly older boat.

My husband and I just finished a 10 day/9 night diving trip aboard the Jelajahi Laut with Mikumba Diving. It was our first big liveaboard trip and the experience was superb. Staff was fantastic. Everyone is so friendly and good humored and they worked incredibly hard to make sure we had a blast while keeping safety as their highest priority. The boat is beautiful and spacious, dive deck is dialed, bed was comfortable, and food is good. The Sea View cabin is glorious and absolutely worth the upgrade with its panoramic views and private balcony. I wouldn’t hesitate to book this operator again on a return trip.

A brilliant, full on two weeks, gaining so much experience diving pushing me on to the next level.

Diving with Manta Rays on one dive, and discovering so much Macro species generally, many of which I'd never seen before.

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.
