This is the trail less traveled

Sailing and watching the sunrise and set, watching dolphins play and seeing a whale cruise past is part of this relaxing cruising holiday. The diving was great sometimes fishy, pristine corals, amazing macro and some hard core muck. Lots of A lister finds but no promises!

Brilliant trip out of Sorong

Really every dive was outstanding. I've done 5 liveaboards and have 400+ dives, but this was the best. Of course the amazing diving and weather certainly added to the experience. The crew did a great job and the food was the best of the boats I've been on. So good, I've already booked another trip on the Tambora.

A taste of Raja Ampat

There were many highlights. The amazing corals, prolific fish life and the varied dives. Certainly the mantas were a highlight but there were so many other animals big and small that made up the Raja Ampat experience.The Tambora was a great boat to explore the area. Would I travel on Tambora again? Yes. Will I return to Raja Ampat? Most certainly.

The best things were the food, diving and its organization and the staff.
