How to Celebrate a Birthday

Celebrating my 73rd birthday on board with my daughter, the crew and other divers was a wonderful and very special experience. Time spent talking with the other divers and the crew. The epic diving including the manta cleaning station and school of devil rays, the various sharks (e.g., woebegone and walking), staggering beautiful coral and abundant and unusual fish life. The services connected with the diving including the terrific dive guides. The nights spent on the deck looking at the stars. All in all a perfect vacation and the Tiare is recommended without any hesitation.

Great variety of snorkeling sites, plus hiking excursions for amazing photo ops, getting to know interesting fellow passengers and sharing stories, the "hero's welcome" cheer from boat crew upon dive returns!

Best liveaboard ever!

Our Misool sites were blizzards of fish and the healthiest soft and hard corals We’ve ever seen. The warm and friendly care the crew offered that met every need and expectation, night diving with so much to see.

Absolutely amazing dive trip with outstanding boat and crew and awesome dive sites and guides.

There were so many things about this trip that were excellent. From diving with mantas and huge schools of fish to searching for small shrimp and nudibranch, the dives offered so much incredible sea-life to see. Bubbling sands, underwater seamounts, and numerous pristine reefs. Also, a lot of sea turtles. Would definitely return to do it again!

Raja Ampat done in style - such a wonderful adventure!

Too many highlights. Relaxed holiday with range of 2 to 4 dives per day combined with onshore activities including some hard (staired) climbs for amazing views, a trip to Jellyfish lake and culminating on a wonderful dinner on the beach. The diving was simply more than I imagined - frequent mantas, large schools of fish, octopus, endless soft and hard corals healthier than anywhere I have been, and amazing night dive at Sapokreng - the flamboyant cuttlefish! Mixed nationality passengers made for interesting conversations - a wonderful trip. Will definitely try to go again!
