“A bunch of thanks also to the entire management and crew of Damai II for creating an excellent diving experience! I thoroughly enjoyed every moment I spent while onboard this marvelous dive boat. I loved diving with the mantas. I will also cherish the fun night dives.
The liveaboard dive masters were fun to be with and were very keen in pointing out amazing sea creatures and spotting those hidden ones. There is definitely no unhappy face on this ship! Raja Ampat’s breathtaking underwater scenery and the exceptional crew gave me incredible memories.
