From start to finish my experience with Lazy Turtle was excellent. Communication was quick, equipment hired out ( regulator for me and a full set for the friend I travelled with) was in good condition and the snacks provided for our surface interval were always delicious. I always felt safe and well looked after by both Nico and Tamar. They knew we enjoyed a muck dive and did a great job accommodating this. They also quickly found out what our favourite fish are to spot and shared in our excitement when these were spotted. The captain was also great! He could tell almost instantly if a site was going to be safe to dive or not. We could tell there was great communication between him and Nico and Tamar. The accommodation arranged for us by Lazy Turtle was also great and just added to the relaxed adventure sort of feeling of Alor. Seeing dolphins in the strait most days from the steps of our accommodation was an added bonus. I have written a separate review for Marangki Kepa Overall: I - and my friend- wished we could have stayed longer and had more time to enjoy the dive sites of Alor with Lazy Turtle .

The four days dive with Lazy Turtle Dive was amazing. Andy took me to many places with beautiful topography, caves, shark watching and mucky. Admiration never stops at every dive. Well maintained equipment and free nitrox tanks make me more comfortable while in the water. The friendliness of Andy and Maree also made it easy for me to communicate and fun. Thanks to both of you and the crew, I will see you again when I travel to Alor!

Lazy turtle is the best dive center i have experienced so far. In here, safety is not just said, but practiced in every single dive. Andy completely understand the dive sites in Alor and listened to our every requests. Their equipments are impeccable, which gave our dives no trouble at all. He also listened to every requests that we have. On our last 2 dives, we encountered i think 4 different types of sharks, an eagle ray and a lot of fishes that we can't even identify what they are. The water was extremely clear and the visibility can reach up to 40 meters (depending on time and sites). If you are planning to go to Alor, I would strongly recommend you to dive with Lazy Turtle. I wish that I could give the Lazy Turtle 6 stars, but 5 stars are the most here in tripadvisor. Hope to go back to Alor soon to dive with Lazy Turtle again

First to dive in Alor, second time to dive with Andy (Andrew) whom i met when he guided in Bali diving safari 3 yrs ago. Felt good of his guiding thus got in touch with him again. Mobula, eagle, hammerhead, silver reef, bamboo, (and their eggs w little shark insidr the eggs), thresher, white tip, blk tip, these were the sharks i saw in my 9D dive trip in Oct 2019. In a dive, a few blacktips stared at me for a long time without moving, i thought they felt really puzzle who this 'thing' is, so funny. Other of my love included Rhinopia, frog fish, leave fish, madarin (one of the pairs were mating), brown octopus, long arm octopus, at least 12 kinds of butterfly fish, different kinds of shrimps included my favourite ones of boxer and marble shrimp, long nose hawkfish, long nose pile fish, at least 6 types of trigger including lots of clown and baby blue trigger (sleeping sweetly when we went night dive), tuna, travelly (hunting a fish ball), milkyfish, blennies and tobies that would come out from their cave holes often.... too many good stuff... Accommodation is primitive, bungalows on a small island opposite to the main island. Pros is its location as all dive sites are within 5-20mins, cons is there are only 2 hrs electricity generated by generator, and the water supply is weak. As the dive shop is situ at the main island directly opposite the bungalow, we hv to rely on Andy to help charging batteries for camera, and rinse equipment and wetsuit at dive shop in the end of the trip. We took one day to adapt to the basic facilities and figure out the logistics, and we settled nicely afterwards. Imagine its the cock to wake u up, and birds singing on top of your roof in the morning, its so sweet! (it may takes at least 30 mins drive then boat trip if u choose to stay in the town, do we prefer staying in the convenient bungalow esp. as we do 3 dives per day) Many many thanks to Andy and Maree. We enjoy our dives and trip very very much. Most happy that its my buddy, who met Andy for the first time and dived in Alor for the second time, who said she would like to come back. We will definitely go bk to dive again. Tips: bring more spare batteries if you take photos or videos, and bring spare chargers so that u can charge at Andy's dive shop as well as in the place u stay. My buddy is uploading some photos of lower recreational standard of us on their facebook page.

Andy is an awesome professional and enthusiast diver. We spent 5 days diving and he took after of us, asking all the time which were our preferences: big fish, hammerhead, macro, etc. If you are an experienced diver who is looking for nicest reef in Indonesia, an a place without thousand of fins, definitely this is your place and Andy is your guide, small groups and professionalism surround Lazy Turtle. Definitely Andy overpass all our expectations (we are divers with more than 400 dives, and they were really high). Thanks for your services guys, we will meet again!
