Wisesa is one of the least expensive companies, but the quality is just amazing. The boat is really beautiful and cosy and the food alone would make a good reason to come back again, so delicious! Also the first liveaboard I experienced without a single technical problem so it was just a relaxing holiday as it should be. The crew is working with such an honest enthousiasm and passion, you can tell their job is a dream come true for them. This really creates a great and fun atmosphere so even when traveling solo, I enjoyed every second of this trip! And the diving in Raja Ampat is even better than I expected it to be. Thanks a lot for the amazing trip I will never forget and I hope to join this boat again in the future :)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

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
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

Climatisation dans les cabines et de très beaux espace de vie pour profiter de chaque instant.

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

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.

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

We found it a good mix because the programming also involved trails, visits with a bit of cultural nature, diving, and it was well over our expectation. Wisesa cabins are comfortable, with ac, cleaned every day. the crew was tireless, we were very well treated. Our guide Dylan Treguier was a perfect host, full of enthusiasm for what he does and that's contagious. the trip was unforgettable amid paradise places.
