Amazing experience at extremely affordable price

We dived some of the most incredible spots which for the majority we had all to ourselves. Our Dive master Peter was a Flores local with a fantastic knowledge of the sites, sea creatures and corals that inhabited them. Always pointing out so much that we would have missed if he hadn't shown us. It was wonderful that this boat was providing alternative jobs to locals outside of fishing- which has had negative impacts on the national park. The whole trip was extremely well organised. All staff were very approachable and professional. The boat was always clean. Chef cooked up a storm for every meal. Thank you Luca and Sokaraja Team for making such an unforgettable experience for myself and my mates.

Absolutely fantastic!

Boat with 2 private cabins (we stayed in one) and 6 bunk beds. No A/C, but not really needed. Staff super friendly, food was fantastic. Diveguides and divesites great mix with driftdives and walldives. Felt safe at all times. Super nice sundeck and places to hang out in both sun and shade. Easy booking. Would go again any time!

5 days discovery of Komodo national park

Sokaraja liveaoard has been a wonderful experience, thanks to a great dedicated team. It definitely matched my expectations, if not going above. In 5 days you definitely have the occasion to enjoy the multiple dive types that you can do in Komodo area, with teams / dive masters adapting diving conditions to guests level. Being maximum 10 on the boat, they have this possibility to build a quite « personalized » trip, and spend time to explain wildlife and local conditions. Food made by the onboard chef is really good and the team helpful. They had to manage compressor issues at the beggining of the trip and did it with dedication, saving what could have been a failed expedition. Dive sites are really good and well preserved, thanks to Komodo being a national park + the efforts of liveaboard teams to preserve the resource and environment. Definitely better experience than diving from Labuan Bajo, and overall a great experience! Thank you Sokaraja team!

Increíble primera experiencia en un live a board

Al momento de confirmar el live a board teníamos muchas dudas por nuestra experiencia y la dificultad de algunos puntos de buceo, sin embargo Luca y el equipo nos transmitieron mucha tranquilidad y los buceos los sentimos muy seguros lo cual permitió que disfrutáramos cada buceo al máximo. También, nos ayudó bastante que ante algunas dudas podíamos hablar perfectamente en español con Luca. Además, la tripulación fue muy amable, obtuvimos MUCHO más de lo que esperábamos en cuanto a comodidad y servicios! Cabe mencionar que nos ayudaron desde antes con muchas dudas tanto del buceo como administrativas! Muchas gracias a todo el equipo de Sokaraja!
