A trip of a lifetime
Visit Date: October 2008
We went on the Sorong to Ambon 14 day trip. However, it's all the places in Raja Ampat and the Banda Is. that made this the best liveaboard adventure. We've done the 7 other liveaboards and this was the best experience. The captain and crew really know these waters. And, visiting Banda was the best topside experience. It's very important place in history is mostly forgotten. But, was the most sought after place in the world for 300 yrs.
Underwater - there were pygmy seahorses on every other dive. We saw grouper aggregations at Koon Island. And, we had great vis and warm water the whole trip. At Run Is., we saw 8 Napolean Wrasse.
This boat is definitely worth booking 2 yrs. in advance for. This operation doesn't constantly rotate it's staff like the franchise boats do. The co-owners are very hands-on and they have trained a crew of motivated locals.
