Good boat that a few amenities could fix and make it great

Mantas were the best. Easy diving from the dive boats. Really good crew. Too bad they can't even get a coffee maker on board or a deck shower. AC in the cabin was also very weak, not sure it cooled off the rather small space at all.

Amazing diving with a great crew

Informative dive briefings; guides are skilled at spotting the tiniest of critters; guides and the crew provided excellent service throughout the trip; food was plentiful and varied with a good mix of Western and Indonesian cuisines; pygmy seahorses and mantas

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.
