Expensive but worth it!

Amazing trip to Komodo! World-class dive sites, and made all the better by the Mermaid II crew. Was amazing having a marine biologist on board to explain things as well. Food was delicious, rooms were clean and comfortable, and the boat was spacious. Service was second to none, absolutely no stress about equipment, just eat, sleep, dive, repeat.

Had a great week diving with mermaid II and the crew

The diving in komodo has something for everybody. Bigger things like mantas and sharks to corals and macrodiving. The crew on the boat made the experience ten times better. Always greeting us with a smile and cheers after every dive. The diving groups are small which gives the possibility to discuss preferences with your dive guide. The land visit made a nice break from the boat life, and we were lucky to see a handful of komodo dragons on our visit. Would recommend everybody to do a trip with Mermaid II.

An amazing experience

This was our second time aboard the Mermaid having previously visited Komodo in 2014. That trip was amazing and would have been hard to beat but this was just as good, if not better. Nothing is ever a chore for the wonderful crew, so friendly and helpful. The dive guides were fantastic especially our guide Ketut who really looked after us. All the dives were planned in advance and we went to the best sites. Very clear briefings and safety was always front of mind. The boat is really well maintained and stocked. Everything is organised to the finer details and is like a well oiled machine meaning you're never left waiting. The food is incredible, the best we've had on a liveaboard. The Mermaid really sets the bar.

Best dive experience ever.

The crew went above , and beyond to make the trip a special experience for all the quests. The food was excellent. The dive briefings were very thorough, and each dive was a different exploratory treat. I would especially like to thank Montse, the director, and Nico, our dive master. There are others that deserve praise as well, but I mention these two because of the most direct contact. We put this trip at the the top of our bucket list., it exceeded our expectations. Life long memories that will never fade. This was Raja Ampat. Our next trip will include Komoto.

Amazing diving with a fantastic crew

Overall the dive trip experience was excellent. Areas to improve would be spreading the dive groups out more when they are in the water. On multiple dives we were running into other groups from our boat. Also, smoking is permitted in the main outside shaded deck which is not fair for the non-smokers. I had to spend most of the trip inside the air-con room because I get a headache from cigarette smoke and many of the other divers were smoking all the time.

1. Excellent diving, particularly in the south (visibility not so good in the north) 2. The entire crew is very good. Detailed dive briefings, excellent crew to help organize gear-up and post diving.

I needed one week off, relaxing and diving. It was just a perfect experience for me as an experienced diver, as well as for my unexperienced friend.
