Great experience

I had a nice experience on the Empress it’s definitely not a luxury boat but it is sufficient to take you to one of the most beautiful scuba diving destinations in the world. Our dive master Jenny was outstanding and really made for a wonderful experience. I would recommend the trip to Raja Ampat for anyone that’s wondering if it’s worth the money and difficulty in getting there.

Excellent experience and I would highly recommend!

I would have paid much more for this experience! Amazing dives and chances to see plenty of sharks and manta rays. The dive locations were perfect and the dive instructors knew exactly how to navigate so we got the best experience. The crew was great and the services far exceeded expectations.

Best diving trip ever!!!

The Empress II was my first liveaboard experience after having done about 50 dives prior and it has really raised the standards for any of my future diving trips! The ship itself is a great size - we had 8 divers on board and it felt cozy but not at all cramped - and the rooms are all spacious and comfortable. It is a really great deal for the price compared to many of the other liveaboard options. The ship's crew was wonderful and everyone worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make our experience smooth from helping set up dive equipment to keeping rooms and common areas clean to serving some of the best food I've had on my entire trip to Indonesia. The diving itinerary itself is also really great and I was amazed by the diversity of dive sites we visited. Our main dive instructors on board were Oz and Jan - they were both phenomenal and very helpful throughout the trip! They provided great briefings about each dive site but also went above and beyond in helping us with any questions we had whether they were related to diving or just the general experience. Pii was the other divemaster and he was tons of fun and was also an expert at spotting the mantas for us ;) I could not have been happier with my experience on the Empress II! You will not regret going diving with them!

An excellent trip which I really enjoyed

I really enjoyed my time on Empress II. It was a great boat with an excellent crew, really friendly and helpful. The food was excellent I really enjoyed it. The boat was where it was supposed to be and everything went exactly as planned. The dive sites were very good and we saw some amazing things. I would certainly recommend this boat to others and would do the trip again. Thank you.

So amazing !

Hi, I went on a liveaboard diving cruise on the Empress II with Scuba Froggy, in the Komodo National Park for 5 days. I must say it was really amazing ! 🤩 the boat was very comfortable, and the cabins well equiped. I slept very well on this boat, because of its size, which allons it to be very stable. The interior were modern and everything is made to feel like you are on your own house. I have to speak about the crew. First, Pii and Oz, the 2 instructors, are so nice ! They took good care about everyone, and we became good friends at the end of the trip. They are really professionnal, and I felt good and confident when diving with the strong currents in Komodo with them. Then, the cook : I don't know how it is possible to have such a quality, but what I know is that I ate like a king during all the trip ! Everything was delicious, and the cook know how to mix Indonesian and European cooking, which is great... a huge thank you for that 👌 The diving sites were amazing as well ! The 2 boatsmen of the crew could drive us everywhere, always with the smile ! They were always helping us to get rid of our equipment, and on the boat, we had fun together. Thanks also to the captain for driving us safely to every site, and a huge thank you to the staff Who cared about our rooms, bathroom and toilets I must say that I didnt expect this kind of service on a basic diving cruise, so I am really impressed and I highly recommend this boat and this crew with Scubba Froggy. I will come with you again !

Great diving, friendly staff and delicious food!

The trip was the right length and swept me off my feet to another world right away. There was a mix up with the admin team and confusion with the pick up as when I called the office they thought we were getting picked up at the hotel I was staying at after the trip. Other than that, one of the best trips I’ve ever had with ideal crew, diving and food. The shop facilities are basic but does the job and was enough for us.

Expectations exceeded

We were 8 divers and the boat was quite cosy for this size of a group. Diving was little affected by the weather and currents. Crew and our diveguides did everything to make safe dives possible. They are very experienced and know all the traps of Komodo. The food was just delicious and plentiful. Crew and the diveguides were genuinely friendly and always did their best to make us feel happy. The only downside was the advertised island trekking and barbecue on a beach which didn’t happen because people are not allowed to enter the island anymore. They should update this on the website. The sodas and beer felt a little to expensive. I had a great time!

Such a nice and valuable memory in Emress II. Suitable for people who wants budget-efficient and nice drift dive.

Staff Jan and Oz and other local staffs (Pii, Niko and others) are very kind and care about guests all the time. I had enjoyed great time in Empress II. The price of this liveaboard is very cost efficient. I recommend to read more information on www.empressdive.com about what they provide. It says free food, free soft-drinks, and free wifi on liveaboard.com site. But it is little bit different with what they actually provide. They provide 4 gorgeous meals during all days. You can drink free coffee, free tea, free fruits whenever you want. But they charge money on canned-drinks.
