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

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

Could it be true there is still a lost underwater paradise on earth with pristine reefs and rich underwater life such as in my childhood memories of Jacques Cousteau......I started to look for the best option to explore the vast protected marine park with 1000+ islands and concluded that a liveaboard would be the best option to discover a significant proportion of Raja Ampat. As I knew from previous experience it has certain advantages to join a specific snorkeling cruise when you want to explore shallower reefs as a snorkeler. Though snorkeling cruises are rare I found Wisesa quickly and after reading their itinerary for the 8-day trip I was completely sold and booked immediately. It sounded like a dream and Wisesa makes this a reality!
From the first booking contact with Devi untill my actual stay on Wisesa with cruise director Edwin and the wonderfull crew everything is organised flawlessly. Super friendly crew and like-minded travelling and snorkeling travel companions on the boat made me feel at home immediately as single traveller. I very much liked the fact that Wisesa operates with a small group of guests as this gives a more intimate and personal experience sharing our daily adventures together around the table or on the beach during one of the three restaurant quality meals that chef prepared every day.
At the same time the ship is big enough to offer everybody some personal space and privacy when you want.
The rithm of three snorkels a day quickly becomes very addictive! The pristine quality of the reefs, diversity of marine life, size of the annimals and immense schools of fish is breathtaking and every time we jumped in at a new site there were surprises and wow moments. A highlight of the cruise for me was our Manta Ray encounter at Manta Sandy. The chances of seeing Manta's are good at this time of year at this cleaning station, however no guarantee.
I managed to observe five of them from close distance just below the surface. It was a magical experience!
Another highlight was that Edwin helped me overcome my diving anxiety by giving me an amazing discover scuba experience. His long experience and perfect coaching qualities made me feel relaxed and able to enjoy the ride. I feel priviledged that I was able to experience Raja Ampat and I am very gratefull for Edwin and the crew making my dream come true.read less

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

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

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
