We all had a fabulous time.
The 8 men crew looked after us very well.
The food was excellent and varied daily.
Dylon, the director on board looked after us very well and we enjoyed spending time together.
The cabins are comfortable and have AC..
Raja Ampat is the most beautiful place on earth if you like to see the underwater-world and its spectacular karst formation shaped islands.
You do not need to dive to swim with coral and ocean-mantas. Dugongs, turtles, barracudas, sharks etc and the coral is in perfect conditions.
We saw very few plastic, and if so we were advised by Dylon to pick it up on the beach . They take it back to Sorong, where there is a special place to leave the plastic.
For me , this was my second visit to Raja Ampat, after 6 years.
There are more live aboard boats, some more homestays, but altogether it is still such a remote beautiful part of our planet, it is more then worth if to go and explore.
I can recommend Wisesa boatany time for a wonderful time in Raja Ampat..
All the way from the beginning when i contacted the Wisesa staff, up to the end of our stay.

We truly had the trip of a lifetime! Dylan the dive master was fun, passionate and professional. The crew of 8 took fantastic care of us throughout our 12 day trip, and ensured the smooth-running of Wisesa. We snorkelled over stunning coral reefs for 4-5 hours a day, seeing a wonderful variety of sea life and corals. The Raja Ampat Islands are out of this World! Dylan was always flexible and determined to find us places we would enjoy, but he also taught us how to respect and care for the precious coral reefs and their inhabitants. We were mostly the only people in our watery wonderland! The highlight for me was swimming with Manta Rays which was both breathtaking and humbling. Delicious meals were freshly prepared three times a day, with cake or banana fritters at tea time. Cabins were comfortable enough, with air con at night, and cleaned daily. Wisesa crew also entertained us with a concert or two! The boat feels perfectly designed for guests to enjoy time together ( as we did), and also curl up quietly with a good book and a chilled drink ( as we also did)!
Thank you to Dylan and Wisesa crew for making our adventures in paradise so wonderful.read less
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

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.

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

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

My...read moreLiving aboard Wisesa for 8 days and 7 nights, cruising around Komodo National Park was such a wonderful experience. My best friend and I dived everyday and had the experience of a lifetime.
Firstly, although the sail was not put to use, the boat is gorgeous. It is comfortable and always kept clean. There are a lot of community spaces so it was a very social trip. The top sun deck is a favourite spot and the crew are able to pull up and remove the overhead canvass so that you are not constantly baking in the sun. Some rooms below were a little smaller (mainly Lombok and Flores cabins). But the room we stayed in, Bali Cabin, was spacious although a bathroom must be shared with Lombok cabin.
Aside from the boat, which we loved a lot, the crew onboard really made the trip magical. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. Even if they are not fluent in English, they always greeted everyone with a smile. And how could I forget their music sessions? They were always whipping out their guitar and drum to play a tune which everyone would fall in love with. There's just nothing better than sitting on the sun deck reading a book whilst the crew are inside strumming away and singing. Those who handled the dive equipment were also very helpful, helping us bring our tanks from the dive boat onto the deck and changing them for us.
The diving in Komodo was just superb. There's so much to see underwater. Even when we go back to the same dive site, we see different things. Sharks hunting, sea horses, massive sting rays, sponge crabs, lion fish hunting etc. Before each dive, we would always get a dive briefing and Edwin (the cruise director) would always jump in the water to check the strength of the current before we dived, which you need to do in Komodo. We really enjoyed the schedule on Wisesa as we got to fit in 16 dives but also got to see the Komodo dragons, visit a small village and enjoy afternoons on the beach. The flexibility in schedule meant that if there were any places we really wanted to go to, Edwin would try to arrange it for us.
Again, thank you for a wonderful trip that we'll always remember. We left with 16 more dives, a tan and lot of new friends.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

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
