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

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.

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

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.

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

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!!!

Hi Karl,
Once again thanks for the best trip I have ever had on the Seven Seas, (sixth one), and that means the best trip I have ever done, irrespective. You and the entire crew are amazing. Everything just gets done with no fuss or bother. and with such friendliness and cheerfulness. You also laid on the most spectacular dives, you can claim credit for that as well. Also, my compliments to the Chef, the meals were quite superb, and so, I have put on a couple of kilos. Already looking forward to our next trip to the Forgotten Islands. Raja Ampat, February 2018.

Thank you for let me, finally, swim with no fear into the “magic deep blue” Thank you for let me learn about the marine life and share with us your love for it. I enjoy every single moment.

Thanks for one of the best travel experiences. Every day in some way was enjoyable and the scenery never failed to impress. I will miss the escape from reality but hopefully one day will be back aboard the Seven Seas. Karl and all the staff were extremely helpful and entertaining, they made the trip for me. Thanks and hopefully see you all again. Raja Ampat, January 2018.

Dear Karl + Sevenseas Crew, First off: one cruise is easily the best Raja Ampat liveaboard experience I’ve had. Not only with respect to diving (choice and dive sites, dive profiles, etc.) but also miscellaneous other activities (bird of paradise walk, dinghy rides, etc.) Diving, yes, but also really full experience. Karl, hats off to you. You are a top notch Cruise Director. To the rest of the Sevenseas Crew: thanks for everything – your warmth + kindness made this experience truly memorable. You all did like things that I would have thought were beyond your duties but which made us divers feel very welcome. Terima Kasih !!! Raja Ampat, December 2017

Day in day out is rare and I tip my heart to you a million thank you. May Good health and happiness be with you always. Raja Ampat, December 2017.
