On a beaucoup apprécié le fait d'être sur une petite structure intimiste de 7 plongeurs et 8 membres d'équipage à l'écoute de nos besoin. Climatisation dans les cabines et de très beaux espace de vie pour profiter de chaque instant.
Les repas étaient délicieux
Dylan nous a fait "plonger dans la soupe de poissons" avec amour et humour au quotidien. C'est extrêmement riche en densité de poissons et les jardins de corail et les gorgones sont magnifiques et encore préservés. Que du bonheur...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

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

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

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.

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.

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.
