Ondina was fabulous

Obviously the underwater stuff is stunning but above water we had side trips to the Papuan villages, the birds of paradise, Wayag as unexpected extras. Ondina has a beautiful wooden interior and is very comfortable. I felt the leadership and crew cared that you had an enjoyable and memorable experience; I did.

not as good as we imagined

The boat is comfortable enough, aesthetically beautiful, the crew and the guides do everything possible to make the trip a very good experience. The problem is that the expectations we had in this area were very high and have not been met, the reefs are very well preserved but there is not the amount of fish that you would expect from such a remote area. The route of the ship is excessively long, which means that there are several days with few possibilities to do more than two dives, in other cases all the dives of the same day have been done in the same place. What also seems out of place is that the Nitrox is not included in the price of the trip, as well as the payment of port berths and other expenses that make the final price paid too high.

A very nice way to explore the seas around Komodo

South of Komodo makes its demands on those diving there. The water is chill (down to 22C), the visibility is so-so. And the current is strong. But this hardship also offers its rewards with great wildlife in stunning scenery. Manta Alley in the south of Komodo is aptly named diving spot. Schools of these majestic creatures danced for us for hours. The local crew and the diving staff was friendly and knowledgeable. This live aboard is highly recommended for eager divers with already a few dives logged. A perfect 5/7 on the Sullivan scale. That being said, I would not bring a non-diving partner with me on this boat as it is a boat and itennery designed for diving. The luxury elements of a floating spa is somewhat lacking:).

Whale sharks, wrecks and remote atolls

The highlight was a day spent on the bay below a fishing platform (Bagan) with 5 whale sharks circling us.
