  • Luxe pinisi ervaringen

De Queenesia II is een prachtige, 32 meter lange pinisi liveaboard in Indonesië. Deze boot is gebouwd in 2016 en gemaakt van ijzerhout, dat het stevig en duurzaam maakt. De Queenesia II kan tot wel 18 gasten vervoeren in 7 cabines. Er is 1 mastercabine, 4 tweepersoonscabines, waarvan 1 op het hoofddek en 2 driepersoonscabines. Ontbijt, lunch, avondeten, versnaperingen, mineraalwater, thee én koffie zijn allen inbegrepen bij de reis. Voor duiken op de Queenesia II geldt een 1-op-4 duikgids-tot-gast-verhouding.

De gebieden die door Queenesia II worden bezocht, zijn Manta Point, Komodo National Park, Crystal Rock, Castle Rock en Batu Bolong-rif. Deze locaties staan onder andere bekend om hun prachtige koraal, rijk onderwater leven en heldere wateren. Manta Point is een ‘must-see’ voor duikers, omdat je er een groot aanbood aan manta roggen, adelaarsroggen, clown trekkervissen en eenhoornvissen vindt. Je ziet in Komodo gemiddeld 20 tot 30 meter voor je uit, waardoor gasten gemakkelijk manta roggen en witpunthaaien kunnen zien. Crystal Rock is populair vanwege de kleurrijke koralen en het gevarieerde onderwater leven, waaronder murenen, schorpioenvissen, tonijn en makreel. Ook Castle Rock is een uitstekende plek om bijvoorbeeld de barracuda, trevallies en makreel te spotten. Ook haaien worden hier vaak gezien. Bij het Batu Bolong-rif vind je koralen, anthias en andere rifvissen, haaien, napoleon-lipvissen en manta roggen. Voor macroliefhebbers zijn er naaktslakken in het ondiepe rifgebied.

Great crew, great location

The boat is very nicely equipped, the common areas are pleasant. The crew went out of their way to make everyone feel comfortable, and to meet any requests. They even did an on island BBQ one night. The reasons I knocked them on value are the lack of nitrox, the fact that anything beyond the basics was an upcharge, and their policies on this were inconsistent as they accept bookings from multiple sites. There are a few mechanical things that need to be worked on, post covid lots of companies have similar issues with equipment needing some TLC.

Great diving

In general the trip was great and can only be recommended. All the dives were excellent. There are few things that could be improved to elevate the experience to an excellent level: The trip schedule was not clear and this created confusion on which day the last dive would have been (some guests booked their flight on the last day of diving, so they had to skip the last dives). The water supply was limited and the air compressor was right next to where we were eating, hence sometimes very noisy. The food was good, but the timing of the service was not always optimal.

Great Raja Ampat Liveaboard!

This was my first trip to Indonesia and my first liveaboard and it did not disappoint at all! From day one, the crew was fantastic - friendly and constantly going out of their way to ensure the passengers were satisfied. The food quality (and quantity) was consistenly great even on the 11-day trip. Even the variety of food exceeded my expectations. Regarding diving, the sites were great - mantas, pygmy sea horses, rays and a whole variety of creatures throughout the dives that our guides were happy to help us find. The guides continually went out of their way to help - both underwater and above water. We had one dive guide for a group of 3 divers, so never felt like we weren't getting enough support at all. Even when some of the passengers wanted to adjust the itinerary to get more dives in, the cruise director talked with each of the passengers and crew and were able to adjust to suit everyone's needs. Very professional and managed well.

Amazing liveaboard

Seeing mantas up close was definitely the major highlight of the trip. We saw mantas at 4 divesites around Misool (south Raja Ampat). Surprisingly there were none at Manta Sandy though when we were diving there. The crew was extremely helpful. We never had to carry any tanks or set up our dive gear. All of that was handled by them, while we could fully relax between dives. The sunbeds on the deck were a great way to do such relaxing. During the dives the dive guides would spot many small animals that were expertly hidden such as pygmy seahorses. They were also great at slightly changing the route under water to avoid any strong currents. The food was also great. Lot's of amazingly prepared local quisine, such as fried rice, noodles, chicken, fish and various different soups. And nothing was spicy by default, but they always had spicy sauce ready for the people that wanted that. So it was great for everyone (those who love spicy food and those who don't).

Awesome first trip to Raja Ampat

Having dived in various area around south east Asia, I will say Banda sea was one of the best I've been to. The hammerheads migration was one of the stunning experience I've had. A pity that the whale sighting was when we were on the boat instead of during a dive. The dive guide is very experience and answered all my questions and even gave me advice on how to improve on my buoyancy control. Quite flexible with the site as long as all of us agreed to the change. The room are quite spacious and clean, plenty of areas to relax on the deck drinking beer while enjoying the scenery in the day and the starry sky at night. Downside is similar to many wooden liveaboard out there, there are some engine noise, but I will say this is one of the better ones in term of condition and comfort. Overall great experience.

Katastrophe NIE WIEDER

DAS Boot war NICHT das auf der Internet angezeigte Boot viel älter nur ein Unterdeck. Es stank noch Diesel und nach Fäkalien, da das "Black Water" in meiner Kajüte in der Dusche hochkam. Fenster (Bullaugen)musste zu bleiben da sonst bei Fahrt die Kajüte schwimmt. 60 Prozent der Tauchgänge waren "Muddiving" also nur schwarzer Sand und Geröll am Boden. Die Nachttauchgänge waren Jagtausflüge bei denen die Letzen 5 - 10 Handgroßen Fische am Tauchplatz auch noch getötet werden. NIE WIEDER

Worst liveaboard experience ever!

To make it clear we are experienced divers and travellers with hundreds of dives and open minds to different places, cultures, people, cuisine (been to Africa, India, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Egypt and so on)... But this trip was unexpectadly bad. If the diving were as it should have been (as we heard and knew what we could expect from a world class diving area of Komodo), we could easily forget about the issues of the liveaboard: being too small, too loud, too crowded (though there were only 13 divers instead the possible 16). The food was barely eatable, extremely repetitive, very poor in quality and quantity also. And believe me we were not expecting fine dining. On the third day we were told to drink less water as there is not enough drinking water onboard - telling this to divers diving up to 4 dives per day on normal air (nitrox was not available)! Just to mention a few issues: - getting to the divesites always happened with a small speedboat made for 10 pax but they used that to carry all the 13 divers and the 3 guides - in their advertising they mention a one guide 4 divers ratio, of course it was not true, most of the time only two guides shared the 13 divers - it happened multiple times that they hardly found or didn't even find the divesites, it seemed they had not enough knowledge of the area - once during briefing we were told that the water temperature is 17 celsius, so we tried to get some extra wet suits which they only could provide for my son. As more divers decided to wear extra suits they of course needed extra weight to be able to drown. But the boat didn't have any more, so I skipped the dive and gave my weight to my son. I just wonder if the liveaboard was full, could they provide enough weight for all the 16 divers?! On top of it all, the water temperature was actually 25 celsius, so the information was incorrect... - communication was very poor, many times we had no idea when the next dive or meal will be, but we stopped asking as the answers were not clear nor appropriate - communication between the boat manager and the crew seemed problematic as they didn't use the same language. Actually we believe this was the biggest problem: the boat manager's goal was to get the liveaboard to Raja Ampat, so this trip was just a must for her, so she didn't really care nor take the advice of the possibly more experienced crew/guides. Never in my life I ever gave a negative review anywhere. I always find the good in everything and even when it's hard to find, I feel sorry for the people working there that they may get punished or even worse loose their job because of my review. But this time I rather feel sorry for the divers spending their hard earned money for this liveaboard and don't get what they paid for...
