Crew was excellent. Diving wonderful but giving 8 just because it’s Indo and, while N Sulawesi is amazing, it’s nothing like Raja, Komodo, or even South Sulawesi. The food was really good but could have have greater variety. We are a lot of the same stuff. Absolutely loved the boat. Value I would give 15 out of 10. Excellent experience, amazing boat and incredible diving for a VERY good price.

Anyone with advanced cert, 60+ dives, especially for those while amazing walls. Great for macro too.
