Coming from as far away as possible, 12 times zones (Lynchburg, VA), we just had to see the Komodo Dragons and the Nudibranchs, Cuttlefish, Pygmy Seahorse, and more Manta Rays than my camera could handle. Sevenseas made it all happen with comfort, efficiency (best dive deck and boat crews), hot showers, good Indonesian coffee, and the best desserts in the hemisphere. Tweaking the schedule due to weather changes and tides was seamless and smooth. A healthy mix of hikes with panoramic views, sandy beaches, and sunsets along with sunrise yoga and pushups on the ship’s roof kept us active and engaged above the water, too. And can’t wait to make a book from my 1000+ photos and relive the memories trip and again. Thank you, Sevenseas. Betsy – Joe. Komodo, June 2018.

Dear Sevenseas, an unbelievably high quality, compose excellent of finest experience on the Komodo Park, we were delighted to return to the boat, see so many old friends and share and new adventures. When we went to Raja Ampat with you, it was clear we would need to come back to the Sevenseas, for the combination of warmth and professionals that sets the bar for everyone else. We brought our son for his first dive trip and all three of us couldn’t be happier with our experience. Thank you! Jonathan, Victoria, & Elijah. Komodo, June 2018.

Hardly comes as a surprise from me that I once again ‘wax lyrical’ about the trip, itinerary, crew, hospitality food and overall a world class quality dive trip. This is the very reason I return with my family and dearest friends. It would be remiss of me not to mention the mixed news about Karl’s retirement from the Sevenseas after 10 glorious years. We wish him every success in future. We hope Alex has large feet because he has big boots to fill. Alex was pleasure and we look forward to diving once again with him. Thank you for everything. Miles Brough and Family. Komodo, June 2018.

Okay, I’ll go first. This dive cruise allowed me to meet memorable people. My vacation became a wonderful learning experience. I appreciated the attentiveness of the crew, but they never “have to”. The crew seemed genuinely interested in pleasing the guests. Thank you for taking such good care of us and allowing us to dive “hassle-free”. Joe. Komodo, June 2018

What more can we add other just to say our very grateful thanks to all the incredible staff; to Karl and the dive guides who all made the trip an awesome life experience! Can’t wait to come back in 2020! To Forgotten Islands. Love them all!! It goes without saying that “The Sevenseas” boat has to be the very best dive ever. Raja Ampat-March 2018

To all on the Sevenseas. Firstly, we want to thank Karl and the land girls, Guteri and Candra for arranging to pick us up from Waisai after we delayed our trip due to the sudden, tragic passing of our best friend do the John Stark who, with his wife Theresia and the girls, Lexi, Cath, and Vicky are well known to the crew and guests. They had been looking forward so much to the trip, but alas the Almighty had a different plan for John. We did, however. Give him a good send off and the sunset on the eve of his funeral testimony. From our side there are so many things about a trip on the Sevenseas to write about, the beauty of Raja Ampat Islands that are otherwise only seen on National Geograpic, the diving is top drawer, the magnificent ship, food, but above all the striking feature is the crew – They are just so special that we’d return Just to be with them – well done to you all. And a final Thanks to all for works who also made the trip so special. All the best from Bostwana. Sandy & Jan. Raja Ampat-March 2018

To all the Sevenseas people, staff and holiday makers.
Above anyone else I can talk about the wonders of the Sevenseas experience . . . . without diving!! It is still a magic holiday, the boat is so comfortable, the food is endless and amazing, the staff are so 100% committed to being helpful, careful, thoughtful, kind. The weather was sublime; and there are simply no words to describe the beauty of the Indonesian island, seas, beaches and general views. For me the incredible diversity is fascinating. And of course, of course, of course, for Pete the diving was THE BEST EVER! See you on 2020, Pete & Val. Raja Ampat-March 2018

Thank you so much Karl and the wonderful Sevenseas Crew, for another memorable, stunning trip. It just can’t get any better!! The dives were unbelievable, the food delicious, and the crew fantastic. Once again, a life me experience. Thank you all so much! We can’t wait for our next trip to the “Forgotten Islands” – to be part of this “Sevenseas” family is truly a privilege. Lots of Love, Iain & Jane Skinner.
A footnote from “Skinny Jane” – Totok’s food is the best we’ve ever had on either a land or sea safari adventure. He is supported by the best team of assistants in the kitchen and dining area – Little John, Lulu, and Niko. Then there is the diving!! Oh yes – then there was the rest of the crew under the leadership of Captain Wahyu and Karl – the very best!!! Raja Ampat-March 2018
Ian & Diane wrote on June 7, 2018 at 8:19 pm:
We were first timers on the Seven Seas, eventually coming after many years of coaxing by the Barkers – What a pleasure. Absolutely the best organization and management by Karl, extremely capably supported by the Captains, and the crew! All were absolutely wonderful, friendly, efficient, and organized. It would be difficult to improve on any aspect. The diving, the food, hospitality, the friendliness, the efficiency.
ALL SUPERB! Thank you to all! Love, Ian & Diane. Raja Ampat-March 2018

Countless technicolor fish, endless exotic gardens of coral, turtles, eels snakes, sea-eagles, frigate birds cockatoos, bird of paradise, villages, swimming caves, bat caves, rock-drawings, villages and jetties, snorkeling, kayaking, swimming, cruising through the dear archipelago waters. How the days dragged…
But it has been a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take a dip into another world, and thank you Karl, Linda and all the crew for making such a unique and special experience feel so natural and accessible. We have learned such a lot from your knowledge and understanding of this fragile world, and the trip will remain with us forever. And of course the food and service were both “top notch” (that’s English, Karl) – just please continue to make one other guest do not drink the “WORDER”. Thank you all again. Raja Ampat, February 2018

Thank you everyone for a wonderful time in Raja Ampat. I loved every moment of it, even the times I was blue faced in my cabin with sea sickness (just a little bit less love for this). When I told my friends that I was going to Raja Ampat for a non-diving trip, they said “how are you going to have fun with that?” Well, add snorkeling, paddle boarding, kayaking, floating through caves, hiking, bird watching, fishing, (baby) shark feeding, jumping off the boat, photography, having gourmet ice cream for breakfast, daily G&T o’clock, village visits, swimming with jelly fish, scenic boat rides around beautiful kaarst landscape, rare orchid spotting, singing & playing card games together and there – one of the best trips of my life. The crew were amazing too. Each going out of their way to ensure our safety & that we got to enjoy our activities. Mark must be a wonderful person & a good leader from all the great heartfelt stuff I hear about him from the crew. Thank you Mark for your leadership & Karl, Capt Wahyu, Capt Pai, Eric, Marwan, Bakar, Big John, Pak Jos, Anton, Bali, Chef Totok, Niko, Little John, Lulu, Jefri, Sadat for a magical 12 days. Raja Ampat, February 2018

Our first ever trip to this beautiful part of the world and our first liveaboard experience has been MAGICAL. Grandiose scenery both above and below the sea. Karl directed us to the best of everything. Fantastic crew – always there to help encourage with a smile and good humor. Its for the cooking – we ate like royalty, every meal a taste sensation. We laughed a lot, ate a lot, learnt a lot and had the holiday of a lifetime. Thank you Karl and your amazing crew. Many thanks to Linda too for her encouragement and encyclopedic, knowledge of the wonderful “world of fish”. Raja Ampat, February 2018

Thank you to Fitri, Luluk, Totok, and Niko for amazing food, the lab dishes were my favorite, the variety and flavor of that kitchen is incredible. The girls were the most attentive hostess and everything is kept sooo beautifully clear and tidy.
To our dive guides Jefri and Sadat the biggest thank you on ever, every dive was safe and you looked after us so well, critter finding . . . amazing. To the boat crews a huge thank you. “Check check double check” All that hauling of gear, checking of gear, helping me into and out of the boat.

Our first live aboard dive trip – we are forever spoiled for any future trips. The staff has been top notch, friendly, helpful, available, knowledgeable. The wait staff is very accommodating and works hard to get order right. Loved the Indonesian dishes, sauces, spices. Dive master know when to find the tiniest critters and work to make sure everyone get a chance to see them. Thank you to Sadat and Jefri. And big thanks to the dive boat crews who always have our equipment together and remind us to “check, check”.
Thank you to Karl for his expertise and hard work finding us dive locations that will be ours alone. Lots of behind the scene work to do for.
That! The boat, itself is a difficult – the hot water is amazing and the cabins and common rooms well appointed, comfortable, and attractive. I will miss this boat and the people who we met on this wonderful journey to Raja Ampat. Raja Ampat, February 2018

This has been one of the best dive trips ever. The crew do a wonderful job of attending for our need, both on board and below the surface. The dive loads we great at pointing out the sea live we would otherwise have missed. IN ALL, this trip was great. Raja Ampat, February 2018

My Indonesian Family on the magnificent Seven Seas did not fail to spoil us yet again above and under water during our extraordinary trip to Raja Ampat with my dear South Africans friends, the Barkers and Co. 🙂

Every dive was magical in its own special way, as there simply cannot be a bad dive in Raja Ampat. There were a few very memorable ones though... we had a few wild feeding frenzies of silversides with dense clouds of them being chased over the reef by packs of jacks, and even a hammerhead swimming by leisurely and close up, absolutely incredible. And then there was a large bottlenose dolphin chasing barracudas close to us, almost too good to be true!!!

The half moon brought mild currents, which were especially rewarding on one dive, where a dense carpet of fusiliers, mainly yellowtails, covered the reef and did not mind our presence among them, just covering us, magically. Very large schools of big eye jacks, barracuda and batfish were also plentiful, and we had what must have been the absolutely BEST manta dive anybody had EVER had, with a constant flow of VERY close up mantas at a cleaning station for the WHOLE dive, with mantas coming in and lying on other mantas to push them away from the cleaning station in order to have a go themselves, simply as good as it gets!!!

Thank you so very much Seven Seas!!! Already looking forward to our next trip!!!
