A magical 10 day diving holiday

This was one of the most amazing diving trips. Everything underwater is stunning. nothing disappoints. Te staff are wonderful and extremely helpful. I am unable to lift a tank due to back problems. They helped me every time. They also take excellent care of the equipment after dives by rinsing and hanging our wetsuits to dry and at the end of the trip cleaning and drying our BCDs and regulators as well. The reason I gave this 4* on cabin comfort is that I prefer to have the shower cubicle separate from the toilet. You get used to it after a while but it is not ideal.

Amazing diving experience on Mermaid 1

The dive sites were beautiful with healthy coral and reef. In south Komodo, we had a chance to witness 20 odd mantas swimmers above us. I stayed in the single cabin and it was comfortable and clean.
