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

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 husband and I have pursued adventure activity around the world, and I have to say this was one of the most incredible trips we've ever done! We've snorkeled in French Polynesia, the Caribbean, Hawaii, but they all pale in comparison to Raja Ampat! Snorkeling the dense, colorful, coral forests and spotting the variety of marine life was indescribably beautiful! Near the end of our trip, after I didn't think anything could top the snorkeling at that point, we had a "Manta Encounter" for the ages! Dylan aka "Snorkeling Guide Extraordinaire" led us to an area where we swam with 8-10 mantas while they were feeding! Mind blowing!! The reason our experience was so great was due to our guide, Dylan, and the crew of The Wisesa Liveaboard. Dylan, Stephen and Andy would check the currents and take us to the best spots for snorkeling! Dylan was fun, knowledgeable, passionate, and above all, professional! We couldn't of had a better guide and boat mate! Captain Jovi, Chef, Wayan and the rest of the crew were exceptional! The food served was abundant and delicious! We rarely return to the same place twice, but we're already thinking about returning to snorkel in Komodo on the Wisesa! Thanks again for the trip of a lifetime!read less

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 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

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

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.

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
