Great 7day/ 6 night trip in Raja! Would do it again with this crew!

Amazing diving! Top notch crew and dive guides, plenty of food, comfortable cabins, lots of space on the boat for relaxing. Safety was the top priority with a briefing for the boat on day one and dive briefings before each dive. Accommodates up to 14 guests, which was the perfect sizer for me. Chef prepared great meals with a bounty at each sitting! Eric and Camie are top notch cruise directors and the staff was warm, welcoming, and great to hang out with.

Best, liveaboard experience ever

Everything about this trip was fantastic. The crew really made it special with everything from amazing service and taking care of us to the absolutely phenomenal food and being able to spend some moments with the crew and the captain playing the guitar and them singing our excursions and the barbecue They set up for us on the beach was breathtaking. We got rained on but it was still amazing... A truly spectacular trip

Manta Ridge - (15) mantas came in to be cleaned and were within (2) meters of the group. Playing chess with the crew was cool too.

Amazing experience

Dives sites were great, dive guides and instructors were amazing and very friendly, thank you @Salla, Abda and Hans! Very friendly environment for snorkels too! Excursions were perfect and we got to see some incredible places and views. Food was always very tasty and different, I wonder how the chef managed to cook so well in a tiny kitchen and limited ingredients. The rest of the crew was so nice too, all very friendly, always ready to help and to have a chat with. We even got the opportunity to watch them sing and playing instruments. So in the end the trip was great if not perfect. Nothing to complain about but on the contrary it felt like every little detail was carefully thought to give to all the guests the best experience possible. Every day is packed with lots of activities for a quite schedule but there’s always a bit of time to chill and just enjoy the sceneries passing by. Highly recommended trip! Thanks Mikumba Diving team!
