Beautiful boat, immaculate service, and a great time!

Spending four days in Misool, where the sites were spectacular for both divers and snorkelers, was the high point. The lookout at Pianyemo was spectacular, as was the lagoon site nearby. Sitting on the prow of the boat at sunset made for wonderful memories. Night dives and a special night snorkel for the non-diver were fantastic!

Nice liveaboard and great diving

The crew and food was fantastic. Rooms were nice. Only complaint was the dive guides did not point out as many things as other dive guides we had on other liveaboards. Divers were put into groups with others with similar dive ability. Dives ended on air or time (~60 minutes). Crew was very careful with camera equipment.

Diving in Komodo with the Seahorse Crew is fascinating and very friendly

The variety of the dive sites is amazing. Mantas, Snakes, Turtles, Cuttlefish, Nudibranches, Sharks and sooo many diferent corals. simply beautiful. The bays we staying at and the landscapes we got to see are stunning. Getting up close to the Komodo Dragon was a great experience and singing together with the crew on the last night was cheerfull, as well as the interaction with the Captain, Akim and Stephen throught the whole trip made me feel very welcome and at ease.

Marvelous diving trip trough Komodo Islands

This diving cruise offers to participants some valuable moments underwater such as observing a large range of Manta rays and sharks. It’s also a good manner to practice smaller marine life dives. Moreover, this vessel is very confortable and the crew with his team building, his cohesive staff provides to guests a customer care I have rarely known. That’s why I advise strongly this trip to all divers who desire to live a unique experience, a kind of real enchanted parenthesis.

A wonderful way to see Raja Ampat!

The fabulous teamwork of the crew. World-class diving. Great food. Onshore hiking and barbecues. Helping me celebrate my birthday with a special cake and great singing!

Seahorse phinisi has everything you need to dive Raja Ampat. What makes it stand-out is the teamwork of the crew. They know exactly what divers want and make-sure you enjoy your visit. Airport meet and greet, through attention to every detail of diving, to fascinating onshore hikes and barbecues to impromptu on-deck singalongs.
