The diving in Komodo is superb and we got the best of every single dive site. The cruise director picks the route and dive sites depending on the weather conditions, tides and currents and will make sure you dive the top sites during your trip. They check conditions daily so if one place is not suitable, you will return to it a day or two later. Also, you have certain flexibility in choosing what you want to do, whether you want to repeat a dive site or if you want to do a particular excursion - like going to a beach or visiting a local village.
For example, we did Castle Rock, Crystal Rock and Batu Balong twice, as those were the dive sites our group enjoyed most.
The liveaboard itself is very cozy and comfortable. It has only 4 cabins and everything is very compact. We personally loved the atmosphere and being in a small group.
There are two instructors/divemasters onboard, so you can dive either as one big group or split in two. This can also vary from dive site to dive site.
We did 3-4 dives every day. The logistics are excellent. You prepare your equipment on the liveaboard and the crew takes everything for you on the smaller diving boat. They take great care of cameras and anything else you might want to take along - like towels, dry bags and windbreakers.
The food is excellent - there is always fresh juices and fruit for breakfast, apart from your eggs and pancakes. Lunch is buffet style and dinner is a 3-course menu. The chef is really really good!
We did all sort of excursions - we went hiking, went to pink beach, visited a local village, saw the Komodo dragons, went kayaking around a sand bank, had a BBQ dinner on the beach and all of this was nicely planned between the dives. The whole programme was very diverse and we loved it.
If you are planning a trip to Komodo or Raja Ampat, you will love your time on Wisesa. The team is also very responsive and will help you with all the logistics around your trip.read less

It was a spectacular trip, snorkeling over gliding oceanic Manta rays, schools of giant bumphead parrotfish, reef sharks, barracuda, turtles and amazing coral gardens. It was fantastic that they offered a snorkel cruise rather than dive-cruise as it that’s what our group of 9 passengers were mainly interested in. So many other boats were oriented to a dive audience.
The crew of 9 was what made the trip so memorable, they made so easy for us to just relax and enjoy nature; the cabins were cleaned daily, fresh towels, wonderful meals, plentiful water and soft drinks. They even threw a surprise birthday party for my birthday! The crew can sing, play the guitar, ukulele, local drums! Unexpected musical ensemble we were so lucky to have.
It was very encouraging that the cruise did not offer plastic bottles of water, instead we refill from the large water dispenser that was always readily available. We really appreciated the ecological care of not proliferating more plastics 🙏 . Less non biodegradable trash in the seas and we can hope to see a clean Raja Ampat even in the years to come. Hope to be back again. Thank you for the trip of a lifetimeread less

There were many highlights but snorkelling with the Manta Rays and seeing reef sharks and turtles as well as so many different fish and coral was amazing. On land we were lucky yo see the red Bird of Paradise and also visit a couple of villages. The food on board was delicious and plentiful, the crew were there to help you at every turn and Dylan was brilliant in choosing different places for snorkelling depending on the tides, weather and currents etc. Definitely recommend this trip.read less

Dylan and his crew of eight personable, friendly and highly skilled specialists made this an unforgettable experience. There was nothing disappointing about this trip from pick-up at the airport in Sorong to the delivery of happy snorkelers at the end of the trip to the Swiss Bel Hotel.
We did 17 snorkels including a night snorkel at various locations selected by Dylan taking into consideration currents, weather in general and the abilities of our group. Dylan's knowledge, spotting and free diving skills and enthusiasm meant there were many WOW MOMENTS both below the surface as well as above. There were many, many highlights but swimming with manta rays and finding the Red Bird of Paradise are right at the top of this list.
The food was plentiful, delicious and varied. The best Calamari in the world!!!
Congratulations and thank you to Dylan and in the incredible crew of Wisesa.
This trip is highly recommended!!read less

Explored Raja Ampat and North Maluku islands with Dylan, Jimmy and the Wisesa crew.
We arrived without itinerary and left Dylan , Jimmy and the captain to organise everything. We seemed to spend every day in surprise and wonder about the beauty above and below the water line.
Dylan found us unique and different places to snorkel and explore every day. His knowledge and love of the reef was incredible and constantly found us unique sights to see on every snorkel.
We al found the variety of coral and fish life the best we had ever experienced.
Overall an incredible holiday with the Dylan and the crew tirelessly working to make sure we had a good time.
Many thanks to Dylan , always full of humour and energy , Jimmy for finding us some good waves , and the whole crew ( their nighttime guitar and singing sessions were so memorable ) for such an enjoyable experience.

It was by far the most relaxing holiday we've ever had. Everything about our adventure was incredible and a large part of that was due to our cruise director Edwin and the rest of the crew. Days were so well planned with a lot of variety and always something happening yet everything still felt so relaxed.
We mostly did 3 snorkels per day which always revealed something new and blew our minds and on top of this there were other land activities to vary things up. Our trek to see the Bird of Paradise did not disappoint, we visited a local village, had a beach BBQ and walked up to the Pianemu viewing platform. We also did a night snorkel which was a different experience for us. All of these activities were amazing.
We were so well looked after on the boat - The food was absolutely fantastic. For anyone thinking about doing this adventure with kids, there were two children on our trip. For snorkelling there was always two crew in the water with someone nearby with a life saver ring if anyone needed a rest as well as a small boat at the ready to assist. Edwin described the snorkelling spots in detail before we left WISESA and also tested out the visibility and currents before we entered the water.
The small capacity of the WISESA is also wonderful. The other travellers were like-minded and there was plenty of space for everyone to escape if they needed to. Our cabin Bali was quite spacious, though the only negative perhaps was the very small bathroom.
As for Raja Ampat - I didn't even know it existed until we started looking into the holiday. It was difficult for us to get there from Brisbane (3 flights over two days), but so completely worth it. We arrived via Singapore, Manado and Sorong and really enjoyed our time at S Loft in Manado. Manado was a great choice for us for a stopover. It is on the island of Sulawesi and you can also visit the marine national park of Bunaken from there. We chose to do a land excursion to Tangkoko National Park which was also great, we saw a number of different animals/creatures.
What a beautiful untouched marine wilderness Raja Ampat is. The coral is in many areas colourful and pristine and the variety is amazing. The fish are also very abundant and we saw all manner of strange creatures - eagle, devil and manta rays, a raja walking shark, a wobbygong, schools of dolphins, turtles, squid, lion fish, huge schools of parrot fish, trevelly, plenty of reef sharks ...
I had tears when we left the boat to catch our plane back. Need I say more ...read less

The liveaboard is a traditional Indonesian 4 cabin boat called Phinisi and can accommodate 8 divers max. The time we had on Cruising Raja Ampat - Wisesa Liveaboard was absolutely great. Edwin, the Cruise Director and also divemaster, and Soreya , local divemaster, are very experienced. The briefings are thorough and the 2 guides know the dive sites like the palm of their hand. The dive sites are planned according to the tides and the current. We also had our underwater cameras with us and got good help on the boat with those. During the week we saw lots of schooling fish, reef manta ray, black tip and white tip reef sharks, bamboo shark, an amazing variety of reef fish, green and hawksbill turtles, stingrays rays and many nudibranch.
The food onboard is excellent and the boat has all the amentities for a great diving holiday - big sundeck, lounge and snacks all the time...
Apart from diving we had a dinner on an uninhabited island and went to a few beaches to enjoy the sunset and a walk on the hills. We visited a local village and went to Palar island to see the Komodo dragons!If you are looking for a liveaboard trip in Indonesia check out their different routes, the diving is absolutely mind-blowing. It was really WOW! Highly recommended!read less
