"Raja Ampat is a gem! It’s hard to get there but more than worth the effort. The diving was fantastic and the group of friends I made was unbelievable. The crew was the best group of people imaginable. I will dive with this crew on ambai again. Just isn’t possible to have more fun on a dive trip. Thanks to all of the crew for really making this a wonderful experience".

“The MV Ambai has just about everything the most enthusiastic diver could need and beyond. Space, great material, fresh water rinsing tanks, nitrox, camera room and much more.

We dove 3 to 4 times in a day but somehow it was always on a relaxed schedule and everything was running smooth. Never more than 4 divers per guides, this is definitely a big point for this boat! The local dive guides are very nice and professional.

You can tell they are knowledgable, have experience and are dedicated to their work. We experienced good weather and the visibility under water was always fair or very good. We have seen plenty of stunning marine life. As for the boat, everything was great, lots of privacy.

The spacious cabins have each their own bathroom with hot shower and AC control. They offer full board, including soft drinks and the food was tasty and various the whole time.

It’s a beautiful yacht and the people on board were all great. It’s been an amazing week! Fully recommend!”.
