We loved this livaboard we saw many new macro species such as, frog fish, nudibranci, ghost pipefish, cuttlefish fish, seahorses, pigmy seahorses, crabs, bubble shrimps and many other things. The crew and guides were fantastic. Just looked at there other trips for next trip!

Good diving and Guides

I enjoyed my time on Sunshine and I found the dive guides to be good although we ended up spending more time in Lembeh Strait than we anticipated because the weather to the south pushed us back into the calm waters of the strait. The crew on board were good--as was the food. The only issue I had was that I was assigned to a bed that was far too small (okay if you are under 5' tall maybe), but I chose to sleep on deck some nights and was allowed to sleep in other's bed when they slept on deck. If you are a solo traveler and book the lower cabins you might want to check and make sure you have not been assigned the the "emergency" bed. Other than that I would happily recommend the Sunshine.

Halmahera - Macro Paradise for Photographers!

Fantastic trip. Lots of macro critters to photograph. Our dive guide found so many pygmy seahorses I lost count. Seas were rough but captain and crew did a great job to manage the situation. Highly recommend this boat and crew!
