    When they write "a life changing adventure", they mean it!
    There is no review or photo that can capture this trip... I've felt like I was in a movie for 10 days straight. Some highlights were seeing dolphins from our kayak, swimming with jellyfish, the guides that me me laugh and sunset after sunset after sunset. While being in a kayak you're closer to nature then on a boat, and you come in places where you else can't come. If I was to hot I would just jump out of my kayak for a little swim (or snorkel) before continuing.

    The guides adapted the length to our energy level and noticed clearly when I needed lunch (thank you Bankit!)

    I was surprised by the high quality gear we had (with extremely good air matresses), and the lovely surprises (like fresh baked cake at breakfast).

    Often I come home from adventures thinking - that was great but I don't have to do that again. From this adventure I came home thinking: when can I go again?

    Thank you Nico, Bankit, Gilang and the 2 other guests that gave me an adventure of a lifetime

    I am repeated customer of Ambai liveaboard. I found their service very excellent in all aspects. What a diver requires, these people knew exactly and make our stay heavenly and dives wonderful,safe.
    The boat and all the facilities are very nice. Best camera room, deck for dive equipments are upto mark. Dive guide are very capable and knowledgeable. The manager Mr Phillipe is a kind hearted,nature loving , caring and wonderful guy.

    The Boat, The Crew, The Food!

    First of all Fenides boat is so beautiful. It looks more like a Luxury Bali Villa than a liveaboard for diving. I’ve been on a few dive liveaboard boats from the Maldives to the Galapagos and don’t have an experience like this before. Not even close. It’s very instagrammable !

    The crew is the best there is. Not only they are friendly and nice, they are also very able! Their
    hospitality is more like being in a luxury 5 star resort than in a dive boat. They are instinctive to everyone’s need even if we don’t ask for it. From the boatmen, dive guides, housekeeping, bartenders, etc. They are the epitome of Service Deluxe. Our cabins are cleaned 2x a day and we never see him inside of the room. It’s magic !

    Fooood is amazing and beautiful. Everyday is a feast! We get minimum 10 varieties on the table for lunch and dinner. We get tailored breakfast daily. Really whatever you feel. Pancake is a given , but do u want granola & yogurt? mi goreng? friend rice? congee? mi soup? We get pre bfast, bfast, lunch, meryenda (afternoon snack), dinner. And we get table setting… I mean really?! we feel like we need to dress up for the meals. EXTRA! is what Fenides is

    My friends and I were in diving Banda Sea in Oct. Even on days when diving is not great, you forget it once you come back the boat with welcome drinks, every dive, different !!!

    The dive boat is equipped with new gears for rentals, all size and all brand new. What do you need? They’re there at your service. And everyone is respectful and professional.

    It’s out first divetheworldclub trip post pandemic. It is perfect!!

    If you can afford it, you must book it!

    My dive and travel experience.

    Instructor
    92.5 weeks of travel out of the US for diving
    2247 dives

    This was our second time diving from a Siren boat, with the first being in the Philippines in 2022. We went with a couple and did the Komodo itinerary where we completed 32 dives. The crew was very accommodating and pleasant.

    First, the boat. We stayed in room one and our friends stayed in room two. These are rooms with double beds. We all agreed if we were to do a Siren boat again we would opt for a room with two single beds as they appeared to have more room. Also, in room one and two you have the noise from the anchor. The rooms we chose had toilet issues and it took multiple flushes to get anything to go down. The shower, sink and toilet are all in the same space which made for a very wet toilet at times. The food on the boat was always buffet. It was okay with times being a bit overcooked.

    The dive deck is nice and roomy and all dives are completed by dingy. Getting off and on the dingy can be a bit challenging at times due to rough seas. After each dive you are greeted with a juice or water during the day and cocoa after the night dives. There is also a dry towel waiting for you. The diving in Komodo park in my opinion was just okay. The visibility at times was very poor and rarely did we get more than 40 feet of vis. The currents can be super strong, making it difficult for photography. The main attraction is the Manta Rays, but if you want to get a good look at Mantas go to Socorro in December where you will get a much better experience. We saw a few reef mantas on this trip and it was nice, but I prefer Socorro Islands for mantas. By the way these are reef mantas which are the smaller version of the oceanic manta. The rest of the diving was a bit boring. The reefs looked pretty healthy, but there were very few critters. We did a few night dives that were really good, but we also did a few night dives that had basically nothing on them.

    The trip to Komodo island to see the dragons is a must do. We had a total of six dragons.

    So, to sum it up I thought the boat was pretty good, but Komodo diving was just okay. I would return to the boat for the Raja Ampat itinerary.

    Highly recommended company for Sorong airport to harbour transfers, Lina met us at the airport, took us to the harbour, purchased tickets with us and dropped us right at the ferry, even assisted with baggage, same on return leg, it was a relief to see Lina standing there as the Waisai to Sorong ferry docked, we were taken in comfort back to Sorong Airport, two perfect transfers, thank you Sorong tours

    When booking I was unsure about being on a boat for 5 days.
    Well it was amazing!!!!

    The boat and cabins were beautiful!!

    The food was so delicious and varied!!
    And to top it off...the best coral and variety of fish I have seen in my life.

    Highly recommend spending time on Tiare in Raja Ampat

    It used to be the Indo Aggressor earlier - new management now. Nice, mid priced boat, great crew and delicious food. They do very different routes compared to most other boats.

    I did a 10 day trip in February/March 2024 to on this Indonesia liveaboard on their best of Raja Ampat and it was worth it. The diving was outstanding and dive guides knew all the sites. Worth checking out

    Just got back from Raja Ampat. The only saving grace is the diving - the best reefs I've ever seen, rich ans plentiful marine life.

    The downside was the LOB, Pearl of Papua. Total let down. The boat was old and in need of upgrading. A couple of cabins had choked drainage in the shower rooms and bugs in the cabins. Housekeeping was poor - no change of bath towels for whole 11 day trip, shower rooms not cleaned, trash can never cleared, rooms not swept. Food was disapppointing, service poor.

    The boat did not live up to the agreement of two free nitrox dives per day (only one per day and ran out of gas on the final two days). We chartered the boat and made full payment 9 months earlier, and to have the owner, Mdm Yayu, who was also on the trip, claim that her office made a mistake was totally unacceptable. Were there no checks prior to sailing?

    One would think with the owner on board, the level of service would be good or better but she made it worse by being unreceptive to feedback, giving excuses for the lack of nitrox and not even willing to offer something to compensate for it. When guests reported the smell of oil in the air cylinders, she suggested that the problem could be our regulators being exposed to the compressor exhaust! She was unable to handle guests, not overseeing the level of service by the staff, lack of safety briefing when guests first stepped on board. The bell (the only method to sound the alarm in case of any emergency) was cracked so badly that we could hardly hear it! It sounded more like someone dropped a pot on the floor! No joke, even the next anchored LOB's bell was louder!

    Do not bother to consider this LOB and the company papualiveaboard.com.

    We were part of a small group of eleven people who booked a 12-day Raja Ampat Kayak and ‘Live Aboard’ tour through Southern Sea Ventures and Expedition Engieering for November 2018. Unfortunately the trip became an immediate and avoidable fiasco in remote Raja Ampat, but was rescued in large part by the trustworthy guides Matt And Angela from Expedition Engineering.

    The Southern Sea Ventures trip to Raja Ampat in West Papua, Indonesia, was to include accommodation and meals aboard the KLM Euphoria (a liveaboard boat), kayak guides, all paddling equipment, diving for some, and a certified on-ship dive master, for a trip covering all the main Raja Ampat island and undersea highlights. The promise was for a comfortable and well-appointed ship as promoted in publicity photos and websites and brochures.

    Firstly, the KLM Euphoria arrived to us two days late. Upon arriving on-board KLM Euphoria, we were shocked to find a boat mid-way through extensive repairs, largely covered in still-curing fibreglass inside and out, dirty floors, unpainted and loose wall panelling, with (as far as we could determine) no working toilets, with the upper deck under re-construction and with none of the sun awnings or deck lounge chairs shown in the promotional photos! And the boat was extensively littered with discarded construction materials. We were shocked at its condition. To add insult to injury, a big storm came during our first hour on the boat, and the unsealed upper deck leaked freely onto our so-called deluxe cabin beds! And this was all topped off by the poor attitude of a very sullen skipper named Artur.

    Matt and Angela, our guides from Expedition Engineering, were equally surprised, and in response to our concerns, immediately cancelled the KLM Euphoria live aboard trip. They then scrambled to arrange a make-do trip with alternative shore-based accommodation for us on the nearby island of Waigeo. Matt and Angela were remarkably successful in arranging, catch‐as-catch‐can, beds for us to stay in little shore‐side dive resorts, so that a kayaking and snorkelling trip could proceed without KLM Euphoria.

    Matt and Angela already had the Expedition Engineering kayaks available nearby, and most of us had brought our own snorkelling gear, so Matt and Angela diligently hunted around to hire little boats from the local villagers each day to take us out to nearby destinations on Waigeo, Gam and Manseur Islands. Luckily, plenty of good kayaking and great snorkelling spots, known to Matt and Angela, were relatively close by.
    We all loved the Raja Ampat marine world with its fantastic corals and fish, and its limestone islands, and its remoteness! And we are very grateful for the efforts of Expedition Engineering, in collaboration with SSV, in making an enjoyable trip for us, despite the sudden KLM Euphoria cancellation. After initial agreement and then some prompting, Southern Sea Ventures refunded the bulk of the trip cost (less the costs of the make-do replacement trip), for which we are also appreciative.

    However, we are strongly of the view that we have a responsibility to make future travellers aware of the unacceptable standard and behaviour of KLM Euphoria that we experienced. We note there are already several negative Euphoria reviews on some dive sites, indicating maybe a clear and concerning pattern of Euphoria's abhorrent behaviour.

    We have recently been advised by Southern Sea Ventures, which is still intending to use KLM Euphoria for future trips, that the ship is now repaired and that the ship’s management has now changed. Some photos were recently provided to us of repaired cabins. However, we note with concern that the same problematic and undependable KLM Euphoria operator is still listed on the KLM Euphoria website. We also note that the photos supplied to us did not illustrate the full repair of the ship.
    Having issued the refund, Southern Sea Ventures now consider the matter unfortunate but closed. We would therefore advise that prospective travellers do considerable due diligence on any trip involving the KLM Euphoria, including such trips run by Southern Sea Ventures.

    We cannot speak highly enough of the friendly, professional and trustworthy behaviour of Matt and Angela, our guides from Expedition Engineering. They saved the day!
    We have rated the trip as one star, because of the fiasco that unfolded for the booked liveaboard. However, the timely and creative response of Expedition Engineering to this failure made the trip overall a four star, based on our shorefront local accommodations and daily kayaking and snorkelling excursions. Indeed, we suggested that our make-do trip could be turned into a regular shore-based Raja Ampat kayaking, snorkelling and potentially diving trip, independent of a ‘liveaboard’ vessel.
