When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Barefoot conservation is a non-profit NGO located on Arborek Island in the Raja Ampat region near Papua New Guinea. This NGO offers you the opportunity to live an unforgettable experience, not only contributing to marine conservation, which is very important nowadays, but you can also acquire diverse experiences by learning about the marine ecosystem, helping local people by teaching them English, tasting the typical food of the region, etc. The facilities are good and the people are very friendly. I had the opportunity to do my DIVE MASTER course in the best dive sites in the world. Not only do you dive, but they also take you to see the different islands of the region, visiting different villages of indigenous people and visiting viewpoints that look like a postcard. The place is a paradise for those who are looking for nature in its most untouched state. The marine biodiversity on Raja Ampat is incredible, in fact just around the island of Arborek alone you can see an infinite number of different species and even things you would never have imagined.
    I recommend this place 100% and if you have any questions, feel free to contact me on my instagram: marioferrarig

    The Pagoda is a nice stop if you have a day in sorong. Walking around the grounds takes about fifteen to twenty minutes. The road to the Pagoda is steep and rocky. I would not recommend walking there from town.

    My girlfriend and I have spent 4 days right by Sewinggrai village at Methos Homestay and we had a great time. The water and the sealife around there was great and also the local people were extremely friendly and we had an amazing snorkle around the area. I would certainly recommend to stay at Methos Homestay which is only walking distance from Sewinggrai - we had a great spacious bungalow (the best bungalow that we had in Raja Ampat) with an hammock and sunlongers and it was right on the water with open views of Gam, Mansuar, Arborek and Pianemo in the distance. Methos and his family were very welcoming, Methos himself was very knowledgable and the food that we had was delicious.

    Poor maintenance. Only a few papuan birds. Most of the cages aren't labelled. Charges foreigners four times the local's price.

    We had such an amazing time at the Wisesa in beautiful Raja Ampat, pretty ship with best chillout areas, friendly and helpful crew always with smiles on their faces, fresh and delicious food and great cruise director Dylan, who always gives his best to cater your scuba-wishes, even when you wish to hit the depth :-)

    Expedition Engineering (EE) are the best adventure trip operators I have encountered. My wife and I have undertaken either privately organised trips or trips run by operators other than EE all over Australia and the world for the last 55 years, Without reserve I recommend EE paddling trips even for less competent/confident paddlers. EE is superior with innovative spectacular destinations, safety briefings/procedures and social interaction. Travel with Matt and Ang They will not let you down.

    There were 3 of us on a week long diveaboard with wicked diving. We spent this time in the beautiful and remote Komodo national park The diving was out of this world.! We saw so much, every dive! The coral reefs are fantastic and the "wildlife" like none other. We had 4 different manta encounters and even saw mantas competing for a female in a courting dance. Simply amazing! The staff on board were so so good! Food was highly satisfactory and plenty of it. The crew was so helpful and all skilled in knowing the dive spots which as mentioned were superb. I highly recommend this wicked diving but also must mention that these currents in komodo are swift and can unpredictable but quite honestly, that was half the fun. Special shout out to our friend Clement , dive instructor extraordinaire, our dive gudies Agee, Jorgan and Engle. The rest of the staff was great too. We will be returning!!!

    I booked a trip with Millekul in March 2020, but eventually I could not do it due to the developing COVID situation. This review is based on the great experience that I had with Niklas from the moment I contacted him till I reached home. From the start, Niklas has provided absolutely comprehensive and detailed feedback to anything I was asking about, considering that I decided to book on the last minute, just before flying from Singapore to Sorong. Even from my first email Niklas has gone one step further and provided me from the start with complete information and his recommendations and tailor made proposals based on my specific situation. I felt like I was being provided support during any step I would've taken and I think this is important for the persons who need to feel in control. You definitely cannot go wrong with these guys! You are taken care of properly and promptly. I usually go with the flow and need less details, therefore his feedback overwhelmed me a bit, but in a good way, eventually. So, even from this point of view I think it is worth recommending them! Not to mention also, how prompt the full refund was made by Niklas, when we both realized I cannot do the trip, fact that gave me peace of mind during those times. I will be back in Raja Ampat for sure, because it's a fantastic place and surely, I will have one of the longer kayak trips with Millekul. I can only imagine how beautiful are the places where the kayak trips are done around Misool. Go for it!

    We went to Raja Ampat with Deni for 7 days and 2 other couples and it was amazing! We had a really great time.
    Deni took us to the best places to snorkeling and trekking, he is a great guide!

    They pick up us on the airport when we landed in Sorong and took us to the boat. The boat is super nice and confortable, the crew is friendly and the food was delicious.

    We did snorkeling all the days and it was always incredible beautiful. I'm sure you will never forget this place.
    There is also a lot of beaches and local villages to visit after and before snorkeling.

    We hope to come back soon!

    We spent New Years Eve and rung in the new decade on-board the Fenides during an 11 day dive trip around Raja Ampat. The boat was beautiful, the crew was awesome, the food was so good, and the diving ... well where do I even start?

    Raja Ampat is huge! We really booked it around the islands and got in tons of diving and saw a wide variety of what Raja has to offer. We spent some entire dives watching the manta rays swim by, circle around, and hang out. And then the next dive, the guides would show us some of the neatest and tiniest critters. We did some night dives and I got to see some of my favorite of the cephalopods: the bobtail squid. There were a lot of dives we did where I was just blown away by the number and diversity of fish, we saw sharks, rays, eels, turtles, and a baby whale shark swam up to our boat! Then there are the snails, flatworms, sea hares, and nudibranch. I got to see a lot of new-for-me species on this trip.

    The food was so good! I'm still craving the beef rendang. I love indonesian food and that was all really really good, but so was everything else, so you're good even if you have a less adventurous palate. And the crew and the kitchen were super helpful, nice, and easy to just hang out with. After 11 days, I was not ready to leave.

    I don't write many reviews, but here I'd like to make an exception. I've done many liveaboards and Ilike really still stands out. I was on board from 30/08/2022 to 12/09//2022 on the route Maumere Saumlaki.
    It's hard to describe, but I'll try anyway. The super tasty food and beautiful dives are the great foundation and many smaller things top it off. The fantastic crew ensures that you really don't have to do anything, just put your arms in your jacket and go...
    Putting on your wetsuit is the least fun part of diving, but the help with taking it off and putting it on is a pleasure. The hot towel or hot chocolate milk after a night dive are a delight. The excellent organization and detailed breefings are exceptional.
    And if you can finish all that with hammerhead sharks then I can do nothing else but recommend this to everyone.

    We booked a 4 days tour with Raja Ampat biz operator and I can highly recommend this agency.
    Everything was good, in time and well arranged.
    On our request guys included in the tour program snorkeling at Manta point though it was initially excluded.
    Unfortunately we haven’t seen mantas but really enjoy the snorkeling there. It’s real underwater paradise.
    Accommodation at Dive resort was good and special thanks for delicious dinners cooked by the staff.
    The only recommendation is to inform guests that they should order lobsters/ shrimps a day in advance. We did it in the morning and it was too late to catch it.
    And please, make more underwater pictures with fish and corals - it’s a real good memories to have.
    Thanks!
