Overall a

Once we got past some of the ‘starter’ dives, the dives were exceptional with lots of beautiful corral and sea life of all sizes. The boat was adequate, but surprisingly run down for only being 1 year old. There was very little shade on the boat which made it tough between dives, I understand a canopy was blown off in a storm, but it covered an eating area right near the scuba equipment where you don’t really see anything because of the hanging wetsuits, etc. the gerator is located on top of the boat, on the sun deck and doesn’t allow for a peaceful evening, especially one evening when it broke and they spent a lot time fixing it so we had the repair noise, lights (made it hard to star gaze) and the smell of gas all evening. It shuts off about 9-10, but then no a/c for the rest of the night. The a/c didn’t work in most rooms anyway. Most people slept on the deck because the rooms are too hot. The food was very good, but there was too much of it was fried. Enough complaining. The crew and dive guides were great, they knew exactly where to go, kept us safe and showed us everything from pigmy sea horses to mantas and sharks. I will recommend this boat to my friends, especially if they put in some port maintenace. It was definitely adequate for what I wanted to do, dive Komodo for a reasonable price.

Spectacular well-thought out diving experience with a friendly, attentive crew on a beautiful boat with one of the best dive instructors we've ever had

The diving is some of the best in the world and our dive guide (Ben) strategically planned out the dives based on current, our comfort level (easiest to hardest).

Value for money

We saw everything from small to large sea life. The 4m Manta Rays were probably the best part. The dive sites in general were amazing. The boat is basic and some people may not like the beds, showers and toilets however I didn't mind. The AC didn't work too well in the rooms but I happily slept outside in the deck at night where the temperature was perfect. The staff and dive guides were fantastic.

A lifetime memory

We saw many Mantas, sharks , turtles, even Dugong!! Me and the cozy bean bags became very close friends since the first day. Usually i get sea sickness easily but this time I didn't take any medicine. The wave wasn't too high and wind wasn't strong either.

Fantastic diving experience!

Crews were very helpful and friendly Instructor/ DM were experience and professional Very detailed dive briefing and great drawing on dive site Occasional power trip and intermittent of water supply for bathing and flushing. (no big issue) After the last dive of the trip, there was a low lever supply of water that pump could not pump up to the shower head and crews were very helpful in delivering pails of water to us. Definitely worth recommending!

An excellent trip which I really enjoyed

This was the best dive guiding that I have ever experienced in all my time diving. We were a group of very mixed diving ability and the way this was handled was excellent. The crew were all so friendly and there was a great atmosphere on the boat. It just shows you do not have to spend a lot of money to have a great experience. I also enjoyed all the other activities that were offered apart from the diving. The beach visits and sunset trips were excellent.

My wife is still is a beginner. Though she's got the certificates, but it's still difficult for her to go to the depth very quickly. The team arranged for her private dive-gude, so sche could enjoy mantas. Places where our boat stayed overnight vere very beautifullm especially sunsets.
