Amazing diving, amazing crew, amazing food, amazing experience

This was such an incredible experience. The process was seamless and the crew and staff were beyond accommodating and wonderful. The food was delicious and the diving was superb. The little touches--hot towels and hot tea upon arrivals back from diving and the live entertainment and music during dinner--made this one of the most memorable trips of my life. Highly recommend Solitude Adventurer.

Top notch quality!

Dives at Manta Alley and Batu Balong and the above and beyond service that the staff provided on this comfortable, spacious boat! I’ve been on over a dozen different liveaboards, and this one ranks in the Top 2.

They set the liveaboard bar incredibly high, I'm not sure how I'll go with anyone else now.

6 mantas swimming in a row in front of us, incredible. The crew is soooo helpful and friendly, constantly jumping to help you with anything and everything, I don't think I put my wetsuit on myself once. The crew played music for us almost every night, but the last night we sat on the deck and they played for us for hours, magical. The bat show was one of the most surreal experiences I've ever had, watching thousands of bats fly out of the mangroves into the sunset. I will be reliving this trip in my memory for a very long time.

Fantastic dive trip

Our trip on the Solitude Adventurer was really fantastic. The diving in Raja Ampat sells itself (yes, it is as good as advertised), and the staff and crew of the boat were organized, efficient and attentive (lots of personalized attention and assistance). The diving logistics were top notch - safety a primary focus, lots of extra equipment if people needed it, great dive briefings, small dive groups of 3-5 divers per guide, alternating guides, easy on and off the boat, great care cleaning and organizing our equipment. The food was varied, cooked fresh with multiple offerings at each meal, an addictive coffee machine, and free soda, juice and water. A limited selection of beer and wine are also available for purchase. We had a bbq on the upper sun deck on one of the nights, with delicious food and the crew playing great music (some serious guitar talent in the group). The rooms (we had a deluxe double) were spacious, comfortable and clean. We had our own bathroom and plenty of space to store our stuff. One note is that the outlets on the boat are Australian (the boat’s origin), so pack accordingly. The common spaces and rooms are also air-conditioned, and the upper sun deck a great place to hang and enjoy the view. Overall, a really great trip that we highly recommend!

Fantastic Raja Ampat Dive Trip in Feb. 2023

We booked the trip for Feb. 2023 and arrived in Sorong a view days earlier. We know that this is the rainy season and visibility and weather might be not at the best. However, despite daily rain and varying underwater visibility, we had a wonderful time and diving experience on the more than comfortable diving vessel. The boat is very spacious with a massive dive deck. The crew took care of everything and made the 3 to 4 dives per day very easy. Underwater, just wow. The amount of beautiful coral of all types combined with ever approaching schools of fish, turtles and lots of macro stuff like seahorse, nudis, shrimp make every dive and dive to look forward to. The service on board by the boat crew and dive guides was amazing. Everybody tries to make this trip unforgettable for you.

A very comfortable and spacious liveaboard with excellent amenities.

The itinerary. The day activities besides diving. The diving. The relaxation and time spent with other guests.
