    Simply amazing Central Komodo & Padar , Indonesia in March

    The Tanaka is an amazingly beautiful boat. I was worried about privacy on a boat, but there was plenty of space to find peace and the design is simply beautiful... I felt at home as soon as I stepped on board, and you simply know she was created with much love by the owner (Alain) who realised his dream... The rooms are well appointed and the beds comfortable and to have a hot shower after a dive is divine! Food was good. Drinks were perfect - unexpectedly found ourselves drinking some great French red wine! The diving was EPIC! Dive sites are unspoiled and corals so healthy, we have seen so much large stuff (incredible dive with Manta’s flirting with us for a full hour) and lots of amazing macro stuff as well (baby ghost pipe fish)... Strong currents, but very manageable with knowledgeable guides. Other guests on board were lovely and we shared an unforgettable experience... Diving in Komodo is epic and to experience it on a boat like the Tanaka makes it unforgettable - we will be back!
