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.

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.

De magnifiques plongées autour de Komodo dans un cadre magnifique

A chaque instant, l'équipage était présent pour nous aider non seulement pour les plongées (organisation/accompagnement/retour bateau) mais aussi lors des différentes sorties à terre (plage/coucher de soleil/dragons). Le bateau est parfaitement adapté pour la plongée (place pour s'habiller/nombreux bacs de rinçage/local photo-video) mais aussi pour se détendre entre les plongées (banquettes ombragées et ventilées). La navigation fut tranquille et agréable. L’itinéraire fut adapté en fonction des conditions météorologiques et des souhaits concernant les types de sites. Enfin, il y eu une belle diversité dans les plongées (grand banc de poisons/requins/tortues/mantas/nudibranches/poulpes/...). Bravo à l'équipage et l’organisation du Seahorse.

Fantastica Komodo

Siamo stati per la seconda volta sul Seahorse e riconfermiamo la nostra completa soddisfazione. Le immersioni sono state bellissime e perfettamente organizzate (ringraziamo Steven e Akim per aver scelto i siti migliori e per aver fatto in modo che facessimo il maggior numero possibile di immersioni.) La barca è comoda e perfettamente organizzata. Il cibo è ottimo Tutto il personale a bordo è stato magnifico e sempre a disposizione per qualsiasi necessità. Grazie a tutto lo staff di Seahorse, speriamo di tornare presto a bordo
