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

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

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

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

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.

Cuisine excellente faite par un vrai « chef »
3 sorties Snorkeling par jour. Tous les sites offrent une très bonne vision. Les coraux à Komodo sont denses, très beaux et sur de grandes surfaces. Énormément de poissons de toutes sortes. On a notamment vu plusieurs fois des raies Manta. Tortues, requins de récifs, et même dauphins une fois.
Nous avons aussi effectué des excursions à terre pour voir les dragons : y aller de bonne heure sinon il fait trop chaud et ils se cachent à l’ombre
Bref superbe voyage que nous recommandons vivementread less
