Best crew and amazing whale sharks !!!

This was such friendly well run boat!!! I highly recommend. Tbe whale shark diving was amazing. We did 7 whale shark dives and had a least one and up to 4 on each dive. The rest of the diving was ok - trip is definitely mostly for the whale sharks.

A truly amazing trip, above, on and below the water !

Diving in Komodo was amazing. The dive sites were great, so much marine life and so much colour. Seeing the rays at Manta Alley has to be the highlight. Although Komodo is known for its currents, the divemasters kept a careful eye on these. The divemasters really knew what they were doing. It was particularly nice the way the itinerary included land excursions eg Gili Lawa, Komodo, Pink Beach and Padar Kecil, and at no extra cost. The boat was comfortable and the meals were good. This was our first liveaboard trip and we will definitely be booking more trips.

Unspoilt underwater paradise and awesome boat crew

The dive guides Nofry, Hengky and Bol were great. Found multiple pygmy seahorses on request. Blue magic, manta ridge and the last night dive were my favourite sites. Plentiful and delicious food from Jan and Linda. Neng was a delight to see every day. Always smiling and friendly. Steerman Erwin and andree were very helpful as well as the captains Dandel, Amsel and Inan. Will be back to dive Komodo!

Good people and service, comfortable room

the room is spacious, very comfortable for two people with lots of luggage. The crew is extremely friendly and helpful. The common area is clean and they provide hand wash soap by th basin. The shower room is spacious too and the water heater never fails you. It's always good to have a nice hot water shower to get ready for the dinner or nap.

This trip was all but forgotten

This is the first time I lived on board, so the feeling is mixed between amazing for the underwater nature and shocking as well 😄 since I had never dived 3 times a day for 5 days.

Voldoende hamerhaaien gezien, maar trip is mij tegengevallen (veel minder divers dan beschrijving en achteraf de verkeerde duikgids gehad)))

Het zien van hamerhaaien (paar manta's en zelfs een tresher shark)
