Kira Kira Reviews
KiraKira is the best Liveaboard around
Gili Islands - Komodo Islands - Labuan Bajo, Indonesia in October
Komodo is without question one of the best dive areas in the world. The amount and variety of fish is amazing! For your own sake and that of your fellow divers, dont do a liveaboard until you are comfortable with boat diving, drift diving, and buoyancy. But once you are, Komodo is a must. Diving in an aquarium with warm water. The corals are so varied in shape, type form and colour, it is breathtakingly beautiful.
Snorkelling is amazing (sometimes better than diving).
The KiraKira is the best Boat for people who do not want to dive staccato 4 times a day but want to enjoy the diving without hectic and stress. Dive sites are well chosen, always with regards to currents and local conditions. Safety first. If the dive site seems "crowded" we rather moved to a different spot and came back to that one later. You still get to see all the main things on the list such as Mantas and turtles and sharks and Nemo fish.
The crew are local and well connected. Amazingly friendly. They sing and play guitar, joke around and make this trip truly enjoyable. The owners, two Brits, are far-travelled and have plenty of stories to tell, if asked. The chef is amazing! Thanks to her, think I gained 3 kg on the trip.
The Crew, their knowledge about country and (dive) sites, the food
Excellent Dive Trip, Pristine Reefs and Super Friendly Crew
Sorong – Raja Ampat – Sorong, Indonesia in December
Manta Ray sightings at Manta Sandy and Four Kings. Excellent crew - very servcie oriented. Rough sea and weather on our 1st night towards the south of Raja Ampat, but decided to turn back to the calmer north. This means extra fuel, but crew and owner had no hesitation. Many extras thrown-in - island BBQ's; extra night dive by popular demand, sunset & lagoon cruises.
One caution- make sure you get latest itinerary from dive operator before booking flight. Website schedule is not updated. Had to change my flights and incur $200 in flight change fees (multiple sectors); or allow extra 1-1.5 days after returning to Sorong to fly.
The Diving, The Crew's attitude to please, Lea's food - BBQ & Sushi.
Amazing Raja Ampat! Kira-Kira makes you happy.
Sorong - Raja Ampat - Sorong, Indonesia in December
Uncountable fishes and other species!, 7 Pygmy Seahorses on one fan coral!, Little blueringed Octopus! Stars wherever you watch! Beautiful landscapes and islands! Funny and very good Crew! Amazing food!
1) incredible dive sites in Raja Ampat, 2) sunrize watch from upper deck cabin 3) BBQ on a lonely beach in the middle of nowhere
Kira Kira exceeded our expectations!
Sorong - Raja Ampat - Sorong, Indonesia in January
Stepping on board you're immediately welcomed and made to feel at home by Richard and his crew. Cabins are comfortable and the shared facilities work well. It's an intimate boat with no room for "egos" and that was perfect for us. With a total of 7 nationalities on board it gave everyone the chance to really mix and get to know each other.
Their flexibility on the route ensures the best conditions for everyone as they catered for snorkelers and divers of all different levels and we were really happy with the dive sites and the guides knowledge.
The heart of the boat is the lovely Lea and her kitchen where she and Ali continuously produced way too much amazing food paying attention to everyone's dietary needs. It was impossible to leave hungry!
The journey was broken up by brilliant island visits, jungle trecks, lagoon views and beach BBQ's (more food!)
Great boat and we can't praise the entire crew enough. A perfect combination of attentive, polite, helpful, fun and a little bit crazy!
The boat and it's size; The diving and the flexibility of the route to accommodate the different diving abilities of the guests; The food
Dive and relax.
Sorong – Raja Ampat – Sorong, Indonesia in February
Good diving in this region.
Hospitality and friendly crew.
Missed planned route and diving places.
Vessel to small and old (technical failures, oil smell downstream cabins, fresh water shortages).
Gili Islands - Komodo Islands - Gili Islands, Indonesia in June
I have been diving for many years and did not know I could ever be challenged like this. The waters of Komodo are fast and fierce. The underwater life and terrain are incredible. Every dive was perfection. I am sure my experience was extra great due to Alex and Paul. They are young ,passionate and experts at their professions. The group is small and even with that they catered to each persons abilities. Alex is one of the most interesting dive masters I have ever experienced. He knows everything about every site and is excited and willing to take the time for each of the guests to experience all the underwater treasures. This you don't find often. Kira Kira may not be a luxury boat, although I was there for diving and am sure it was the best diving in all of Komodo. Thank you Paul and Alex
Alex the dive master, crew, adventure
Amazing diving with an amazing instructor
The Komodo National Park, Indonesia in August
Crystal bay avec des dizaines de requins et des centaines de GT, thons, ... autour de nous
Alex l instructeur, l équipage, la connaissance des sites de plongée
Great briefing on dive sites and guided dives, felt safe and well looked after
The Komodo National Park, Indonesia in September
We loved that this was a small group which meant it had some room for flexibility. We all got along well so that made for a fun trip. Alex our dive guide was so amazing with dive briefings and diving. He was also very patient when we all wanted to have a go at the wakeboarding which meant having to drive the boat in the hot sun for 4 hours one afternoon.
The boat was basic, but had the necessary things for comfort. The bean bags on the deck was fantastic place to chill out between dives and enjoying sunrise and sunset.
Double cabin is lovely on the deck, you get a beautiful breeze, and you can enjoy the view but have to admit a bit annoying with the low ceiling after knocking your head a few times getting in and out. It is not private in that the whole cabin faces the deck where people hang out and also occasionally crew sleeping. They have curtains so its manageable.
Small intimate group, some flexibility in the itinerary, an opportunity to try wakeboarding
Can not recommend highly enough
The Komodo National Park, Indonesia in September
Can not recommend the Kira Kira highly enough - did an 8 day liveaboard around the Komodo Islands, leaving and returning to Labuan Bajo, and including a day trip to see the Komodo dragons.
- The food was fantastic - plenty of variety, plenty of quantity, and very tasty
- The people on board the Kira Kira are very friendly, and make great divemasters. The crew are also fantastic - always willing to have a laugh with the guests
- And of course, the dives - the Kira Kira doesn't plan their dives months in advance like some liveaboards; each trip, they pick the best dive sites best on current conditions. They also try to avoid the ones that are going to be crowded with day trippers, or time the dive to avoid other groups - I think there was only one, maybe 2 dives the whole trip where we ran into other dive groups. We were able to see manta rays, turtles, and reef sharks, on multiple occassions, as well as fantastic coral gardens and rock walls.
