3 Tips for WISESA Raja Ampat liveaboard trip We are New Yorkers who took the 8 day WISESA boat snorkeling trip through Northern and Central Raja Ampat from...read moreWe are New Yorkers who took the 8 day WISESA boat snorkeling trip through Northern and Central Raja Ampat from Jan. 5 - Jan 12. We were lucky in that the seas were relatively calm with almost no current at any of the snorkeling sites that we visited during the 8 days.
Here are some tips:
1 Snorkelers: Bring a 3 mil wetsuit. We started with just full body Lycra suits but soon got cold after repetitive snorkeling. Yes, the water is 80 F degrees this time of year but you will be doing 3 one-hour snorkels each day which will drop your core body temperature.
2. Bring a tropical diving hood. The sun beats down mercilessly on your head so you need to protect your scalp from sunburn. Hoods are better than sunscreen.
3. Select the right cabin. There are four choices of cabins. My wife and I chose the back two (Bali and Lombok) which provide more privacy than the front cabins. WISESA charges per person rather than per cabin so there was no extra charge for having two cabins. Of the two cabins we had, Cabin Bali was larger and better than Cabin Lombok. Having the back two cabins meant we didn’t have to share the bathroom with others.read less

Empezando por la comunicación via email para hacer la reserva, con rápidas respuestas y explicaciones e instrucciones super claras.
Ellos te ayudan a organizar todo. Desde que llegas al aeropuerto, un coche te está esperando para llevarte al barco, donde te reciben con un zumo de frutas recién hecho y flores.
El barco es nuevo, amplio y muy cómodo. Lo que más me gustó son los sofás y el sun deck donde puedes cómodamente relajarte y disfrutar de las vistas mientras navegas, con muchas sombras para estar resguardado del sol, pero disfrutando de la brisa marina.
La organización para el buceo es perfecta. El primer día hicimos un check dive para definir los grupos de buceo de acuerdo al nivel de cada uno. A partir de ahi, cada buzo con su grupo y su guía, disfrutamos de unas inmersiones espectaculares. Chequean condiciones y corrientes antes de cada inmersión para que puedas disfrutar al máximo de tus buceos.
Lo que más aprecio es que los grupos son reducidos (máximo 8 buzos). Soy buzo profesional y siempre elijo los centros de buceo o cruceros vida a bordo con pocos buzos. El trato es personalizado, el dive master escucha cuales son tus preferencias (fotografía, vida macro, corrientes y acción bajo el agua….) y planifica las inmersiones de acuerdo a tus gustos.
La tripulacion es super amable y siempre pendiente de tus necesidades, y el cocinero es INCREIBLE. La cocina es abierta y puedes ver cómo prepara cada plato. Frutas y snacks están siempre disponibles, la comida es tipo buffet y la cena servida en plato y cada noche con un postre diferente. Es abundante (yo no pude terminar cada día todos los platos, muy a mi pesar) y es deliciosa.
Y aparte del maravilloso buceo, la excelente comida y la profesionalidad y amabilidad de toda la tripulación, en Wisesa ofrecen para aquellos que lo deseen, pequeños treckings y excursiones en las islas. Yo tuve la suerte de hacer dos treckings en Pyanemo y la laguna del amor (una preciosa laguna en forma de corazón), ir a la playa a pasear, y ver a los tiburones bebe de punta negra en la orilla, hacer paddle board y nadar en una cueva con unas formaciones de estalactitas impresionantes.
Así que solo puedo decir una y mil veces a todo el equipo de WISESA GRACIAS por este maravilloso crucero, repetiré sin duda en Raja Ampat, Komodo o el mar de Banda con vosotros. Recomendable 1000%read less

Wisesa was a superb vessel. Dylan is a fantastic guide, knows all the right places (away from the crowds) and importantly respects the wildlife and nature with true passion. Staff are full of personality and smiles and we had a good laugh with them. Rooms are brilliantly clean, comfortable and more spacious than we've had on other similar liveaboards (they are for sleeping, you relax above deck). Our adventure was everything we wanted thanks to Wisesa and the only sad part is we couldn't come straight back.read less

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

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.
