The Best!

The crew on this trip is over the top! They pay attention to your every need. We were so spoiled. They set up our tanks, assisted in getting us in and out of gear and took our wet suits from us as soon as they were off to get them rinsed and hanging before the next dive. Best yet they did it all with huge smiles. It truly seems like the crew is having a great time while they work. I brought my regulator mask and fins but rented a BC and wet suit both of which were in great condition! I also took the Nitrox certification class while on board which was easy to do around the diving and I’m so happy I did! Komodo can be known for its crazy currents and I was a little apprehensive not having the experience with hooking in before. I felt so safe on board this boat. My dive master Allo, made me feel so secure and found us so many creatures I never would have seen with out him. Dive briefings were thorough and the crew made everything so efficient. They dive with 4 people per DM so you don’t feel crowded but you feel looked after. The cruise director Sara did an excellent job of relaying all information, being an extra Instructor the water on big current dives and making everyone feel at home. The food was great and we never felt hungry! This was an excellent trip! This was my first live aboard but listening to the others who had been on many, this crew and food were the best. I will be back and will follow Mermaid II to each of their destinations!! Thank you!!

Amazing experience

The diving was spectacular. The crew was terrific. The diving masters were clearly qualified and there was strong emphasis on safety throughout. The food on board was amazing. The group of divers (<15) was small enough and this was a great group of people. This is a fairly expensive holiday but it felt worth it.

A stunning introduction to Liveaboards and the Coral Triangle

Almost too many to mention , so many firsts!! Dropping into shotgun and the cauldron as a hegative entry yhen flying through and hanging on to watch a Manta show you how to deal with current! Dropping into turtle city at dusk to find too msny turtles to count, just chilling on the bottom then night dives with octopi , pegasus fish, frogfish and soooo many more. Finally the escort of dolphins as we headed back to Bali. Even the seasoned liveaboarders were impressed! Thankyou Ulrich and the crew for a fantastic time.
