Best time ever

We had one of the best experiences of our life at Sokaraja! The crew goes above and beyond to welcome you, but at the same time everything is very low key and convivial. We stayed at one of the double cabins and it was very comfy. The food was also great. And more than anything, we really loved spending time with our dive masters! People passionate about anything related to diving and who make their best to prepare you for the very challenging dives at Komodo. This boat is owned and operated by an Italian, and you can tell everything that matters is up to the best standards. Equipment in perfect condition, they'll change or fix anything immediately if you point to the slightest issue. The only but, if you have small feet or an oddly shaped nose, invest on masks and fins before joining if you don't have your own. Anyway, after this trip you'll want to repeat and you'll end up buying your own equipment!

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!
