These guys have all the essentials at 5-stars; they know the dive sites and what to expect (we went South when almost no one was there), the boat crew are some of the nicest, accommodating and helpful people I have met, the equipment were all in excellent conditions or get fixed if not, Akbr was an awesome dive-master, the food was plenty, local flavors and delicious, and best for last: the boss, Frank, away from his tremendous diving experience, discipline to time, attention to details and amazing ship leadership, he was listening to all our requests and made them possible. I had an amazing experience in every aspect.

If you are looking for a luxury boat with fancy cabins and hot showers everywhere then remember that Bajo 1 is a bit oldish and could be in a much better shape, but to be honest you also get what you paid for in that sense. I had a slight misunderstanding initially with the team, and everyone was involved to resolve it, I thank them for that.

Thanks guys and probably will see you soon on a trip North.

I did 9 dives across 3 days with Bajo Dive Club, and they were super accommodating to make sure I could go out, despite being their only guest for 2 of the 3 days. They ensured I got to see some of the best dive sites in Komodo National Park and had a great trip.
The price was unbeatable compared with other dive centres around Flores, and at first I was worried that might mean a compromise in quality, but there definitely wasn't!
My dive guide, Akbar, was really great; I was diving with my own equipment for the first time, which he helped me set up and explained what he was doing and how, and he helped me test it out before our first dive, with spares of everything in the boat in case something went wrong. I was really lucky that it was just us for all dives, which obviously made it a much more personalised experience, and as Akbar does reef checks around the park, he explained a lot about the topography and what we were seeing. I hadn't dived with such strong currents before, but he made sure I was ok throughout.
Unfortunately I didn't see any mantas (out of season), but I'll be back to see them and will definitely dive with this team again!

I went on a beginner dive with Bajo Dive Club having never done it before and the experience was AMAZING! Lydia, my instructor was a fantastic teacher and I feel extremely grateful for her excellent instruction and patient guidenance. Even though the the beginner dive couldn't descend below 12m, we saw amazing coral, fish, sharks, sea turtles and HUGE manta rays! My husband, who is an experienced diver, joined us and said it was some of the best diving he'd ever done. The food on the boat was delicious, the staff was friendly and the boat itself was cozy and comfortable. Thank you Lydia and Bajo Dive Club!!!

We had an amazing 4night/5day liveaboard experience with Bajo Dive Club. Frank’s expertise and knowledge were astounding, where each descent under the water was breathtakingly beautiful. After a long break from diving being in the capable hands of Divemaster Antonio made us comfortable and increasingly confident. The crew were all fantastic, we were so well looked after. The food was fresh, healthy and abundant. They shared with us a special place on this planet. We really hope we’ll be back again.

What a great place, and with fantastic diving, and easy to get to, just an hour from Bali. I hadn't dived for 20 years, but what a place to get back into it, cruising around the islands at the eastern end of Flores, and diving at so many different locations. I had never been on a liveaboard dive trip before and wasn't sure what to expect, but it was a great experience. There was a variety of dive sites with beautiful coral walls and we got to see mantas!!!!
The boat crew were superb, just a great way to dive in Indonesia, and we got to see the Komodo Dragons as well in the National Park. Bajo Dive Club sorted it all out for us, ensuring everything we needed was attended to, what we wished to do on the dive cruise, all excellent. could not have asked for more!

We did our PADI Open Water course, had a great few days. We saw turtles, sharks, manta rays and so many different types of fish and coral. There was only two of us doing the course, so we had lots of time to practice each skill and could go at our own pace, although a couple more people would have enhanced the experience too. Food on board boat was very nice. Communication from Bajo Dive before, during and after course was very good. Would definitely recommend Bajo Dive Club, and diving in this area.. BEAUTIFUL! 🤩

What an amazing experience it was to dive with bajo dive club. We haven't dived in 13 years with my husband and did first the refresh dive with Antonios, just in the shallow water. We did our open water dive course in Thailand and I had bad experience with pressure in my ears, here they made sure I can take it easy and go in my own pace. Day later we went off with the boat for three dives. I loved how patient they were with us and I felt really safe with them. The dive sites were amazing and we got to see turtles, mantas and sharks 💜. The food on the boat was delicious and it was laid back vibe the whole time. Thank you to the whole bajo dive club team. We will for sure come back to you in the years to come.

Everything was arranged perfectly, from the first contact with Anke via email and WhatsApp up to the great dives with Frank and his crew. The food was fantastic and so were the dive sites and the crew on the boat. Very helpful and we felt very safe and well looked after. We would go again anytime.

I had a great time diving with these guys. The equipment was in good condition, the dive guides are friendly and knowledgeable and the boat was great, nice breakfast on board and a fresh cooked lunch, fantastic, non of that lunch box rubbish.

I would recommend them as I love to atmosphere on the boat, super chilled, as well as the above. If you are lucky you'll meet Sander, the flying dutchman 🙂
