I got recommended by a friend of mine to do my Divemaster course with Wicked, and so I did. And Im so glad for it, it was really good guides and teachers, and they do want you to really learn and be good at it, not just ship you off once you are mediocre at an area... and as you... More

Having returned from 2 days of day boat diving and 3 day liveaboard on Bali Prima. I couldn't recommend wicked diving highly enough. All the DM's we experienced were professional, knowledgable and fun to be with. The equipment was new and up to date and the diving was out of this world. The food on the Bali prima was the... More

There's a reason our staff giggle when guests ask them if we have good food on the boat! A mix of western favorites and Indonesian food compliments the fantastic diving in Komodo. The cooks really do have passion for preparing delicious food, for people of all tastes and dietary choices. And the passion of the dive staff and boat crew... More

Wicked Diving offers top notch diving with top notch staff,plus they are very ecologically focused. Their rental gear is new condition and well cared for. They go above and beyond for their customers at every opportunity. They even stepped in to help me find a hotel on short notice.

I had been recommended by a friend to go to Wicked, and to begin with everything was great- almost new kit, new boat, friendly staff, great sites... The actual diving I did with them over the next 3 days was great- incredible marine life, knowledgeable and professional staff, and I felt safe and fun. The organisation and management though was...

We apologize for the experience you had on that day. That was actually the second day of operation on our new daytrip boat, so we unfortunately had some operational kinks to work out. We've since learned from our mistakes and put on a organized efficient schedule. Please check to see our newer reviews as they come in and you'll see... More

This is the place. I arrived in Labuan Bajo with no plan, nothing reserved, no research. I walked up and down the main street talking to most of the dive shops in town about what I wanted: an Advanced diver course and then time on a liveaboard. Wicked's vibe in the shop, the attention I got from the manager, Kevin,... More

Aww, we're blushing! Thanks for the kind words, it was truly great to have you with us. We think liveaboards are awesome too, and with the Cakrawala Biru it's easy to do on your schedule. We've found that a lot of people arrive to Komodo without a plan for their diving. We figure that great diving, great staff, and "the... More

I really enjoyed the liveaboard trip with Wicked Diving and the boat "Jaya". Thank Carl, Pit, Martyn, Fauji, and all the staff on the Jaya for the exceptionally good experience on the boat and under the water. Carl - a very gentle, kind, and professional instructor, I was lucky that I did the course and diving with you, especially I... More

We're very privileged to dive with the amazing creatures we do. It's exciting for us to share that with our guests as well. Their passion is evident in their work, and it's our staff that makes our trips tick the way they do. Thanks for choosing Wicked to see Komodo, join us again anytime! More

So happy you had a great trip! A week at sea in Komodo is hard to beat. We cater those trips to the experienced diver; great diving, staff, and food. It's normal for us to hear that the worst part of the trip was getting off the boat; maybe next time you'll do a 10 or 21 day trip? They're... More

Wasn't quite expecting the currents to be as strong as they were but it was a lot of fun! The dive instructors did a great job outlining what was going to happen on each dive and what we should expect to see. Would definitely go with these guys again!

Komodo currents can be challenging to say the least! As you've found, if you are well briefed and prepared, and guided by experienced professionals; it;s great fun. Komodo has it all, massive schools of fish, macro life, BIG fish, turtles....couple that with crystal clear warm waters with thrilling current - a great diving experience.

Glad you liked the new boat! It was purpose built to be comfortable and efficient while visiting some of the best places in Komodo National Park. It's easy to see our staff loves what they do; it makes for a great day with beautiful scenery aboard a new boat with new dive equipment. Come back soon! More

Did a 4 days 3 nights liveaboard with Wicked Diving's "Jaya" boat. Prior research led me to choosing Wicked, as their 4D3N option fitted my schedule, and the promptness and quality of their response was promising. The diving in Komodo is superb, wide biodiversity of marine life and vibrant corals. Diving aside, Wicked's staff were truly engaging. The spirited Martin... More
