An Excellent Boat and Excellent Crew

The diving was amazing! I'm pretty sure they paid that manta to show up and let us gaze and film for 20 straight minutes. The boat was well appointed and I wanted for nothing. I highly recommend Sea Safari for Raja Ampat diving.

Great Crew & Service

From the minute we arrived on the boat, the crew and service were outstanding! There were so many good dive spots! We did 4 dives a day, which included a night dive each night. Even though April is the beginning of the rainy season, we had beautiful skies and weather the entire trip. The cabins are small but nice. AC works great. Lots of room on the boat for gathering after diving and eating to relax, play games, read or sunbathe. We had one snorkeler on the boat and nine divers. The snorkeler had a personal guide every day and was so pleased with how much and the variety of what she saw. Food was plentiful and good, mostly Indonesian style. All in all, this was a great trip and matched our expectation from the last time we visited (on a different boat) in March 2012. Visibility may have been a little better in March 2012 but our April 2018 visibility was still great. Thanks to the Sea Safari 8 team for excellent service and to the Liveaboard folks for helping us through the painless and efficient booking process!

Stunning place for a honeymoon

The range of diving was excellent and included a range of dives that allowed time to search for the small critters as well as the sharks, manta's and abundant fish life. The crew of Sea Safari were excellent and made it a really fun experience, whilst maintaining the focus on safety during the dives and any boat transfers. The food was abundant, and of a very very high quality. Fresh fish, crab, lobster all served across the journey in addition to some of the Indo staples.
