    Einfach mal abtauchen und die Welt oberhalb vergessen Komodo, Indonesia in October

    Tauchplätze wie Castle Rock, Chrystal Rock. Tauchen am Shotgun werde ich nie vergessen. Am vorletzten Tag haben wir doch noch Mantas direkt über uns gesehen. Roy hat sich sehr bemüht unsere Wünsche (an Tieren / Kreaturen) zu finden Jace hat mir so manchen guten Tipp beim Fotografieren geben können. Die ganze Crew hat einem das Gefühl von Zuhause zu sein, gegeben. Interessant war auch der Ausflug zu den Drachen und abends die Fledermäuse beim Wechseln der Inseln beim Sonnenuntergang zu sehen.

    Excellent. We liked the fact that the boat had few passengers Raja Ampat North, Indonesia in November

    We liked the cook´s skills, the food was tasty. The crew were friendly and helpful. The master diving guide was friendly too. He was willing to talk and entertain us. He was knowledgable about the geography and history of the places we visited. He had a good sense of humor too.

    Alone on the sea Raja Ampat South, Indonesia in April

    With such a small group of guests, it was easy to find some alone time to enjoy the sea and the sky. The decks have ample covering, so you can find a shady spot if you aren't trying to tan continuously. We were alone on the reefs 90% of the time, and usually dove in 2 groups of 4, which was great. The crew was super friendly. The cook is really good, and every meal was incredible. And they had an espresso machine! This trip was a dream, and I would definitely book again.

    Individuell abgestimmt, einfach herrlich! Komodo, Indonesia in June

    An-/Abreise: hat einwandfrei geklappt, man hat uns beim Hotel direkt abgeholt, direkte Anfahrt zum Flughafen war auch dabei. Man fühlte sich sehr sicher. Boot: sehr sauber, Equipment in guten Zustand Essen/Trinken: Selbstbedienung für Getränke, es gab immer viel zu viel Essen, es war aber auch immer sehr gut, Abwechslung von indonesischer und internationaler Küche Tauchen: unser Guide Ben war 1A!!! Besser hätten wir es nicht treffen können. Von Schwarmfischen, Schnecken bei Nachttauchgängen bis zu Schildkröten, Mantas und Riffhaien alles gesehen. Tauchplätze sind sehr einfach bis mittel zu tauchen, wurden auf unser Erfahrungsniveau angepasst. Ich würde wieder die Manta Mae buchen. Die ganze Crew war sooo freundlich und sehr aufmerksam.
