The most wonderful and relaxed diving experience possible. Fabulous boat, private sleep quarters and wash room, immaculate on all 3 decks. Pieter is a tremendous dive master and ship host. His intimate knowledge of the currents, tides, changes in weather, underwater sites, dive techniques, best practices, acquatic life and genuine enthusiasm made this experience our very best in Indonesia. I came away a more confident and comfortable diver, and have a greater appreciation for why a dive master can make or break a dive experience. The entire crew, in particular Ari, the other dive master, were fabulous. We were a party of 6, plus had two toddlers. We had 10 dives and 9 snorkels over 5 days. The crew was so accommodating and so friendly, we felt like leaving family when we finally returned. Needless to say, spend the few extra dollars and get the very most out of your liveaboard experience.

Taking a 4D/3N trip with Wunderpus was the highlight of my travels in Asia. Their staff have been incredibly kind, funny, and very personable. They feel like an extension of our group and would be the main reason for booking with them again. The catering on board was perfect, from filling breakfast through warm snacks after a dive to a plentiful dinner every night. Our group had one vegetarian who was well catered for - with high-quality alternative dishes. Ranging from 25-250 dives, our divers experience varied drastically yet for each dive we we're well looked after. The briefs on the dive sites were well presented and included detail of the marine life that you couldn't find elsewhere. Personally, I enjoyed that the Wunderpus team had hosted a manta research student, meaning they were very well informed on the creatures. All of our equipment was clean, high quality, and maintained throughout the trip. The boat facilities were again, more than expected. Comfy beds, spacious rooms, hot showers and clean/tidy communal areas. Our group has been back for less than 24 hours and is already beginning to plan our next trip. Great food, great people, incredible diving, and the perfect liveaboard to host the best experience.

Dear Calvin, Ahh, you guys are the best. I and for sure the rest of the Wunderpus family would love to host you all again on our Flagship. Especially as we still have to show you all the southern dive sites of Komodo!!! It's been an absolute pleasure to take you all diving and pointing out loads of Nudie branches to you all - and a few Mantas and Sharks (just a few - haha). I will happily pass on all the compliments to our Cabin-Manager Andri, he is a very hardworking crew member and deserves praise for making your beds and keeping communal spaces tidy. He is a champ. Obviously also the rest of the Wunderpus family: Jun, France, Dus, Dion, Ridwan, Bueng, Darul and Pieter deserve your 5 stars! I've already sent them a screenshot of their review. They will be beaming! Hope to see you guys soon! Coco

Dear TJ, Thank you very much for taking the time to write us a review. We had an absolute blast hosting you guys on our boat and showing you the North and Central of Komodo. Hopefully soon we can also show you all the Southern Dive sites and see more Mantas and Sharks. I will happily pass on all your compliments to the rest of the Wunderpus family! Coco

We spent 4 days onboard Wunderpus in September 2020 snorkeling and diving Komodo national park. We had the best guide, beautiful boat and a wonderful group of people to travel with. The boat was modern and maintained in great shape which was one of my criteria for choosing it. Cabins were comfortable and had good air conditioning. On the nights you could be on deck under the stars which were magnificent that far from city lights! Speaking of “far from city”, ironically the cell coverage inside the park was often better than back in Labuan Bajo! Our 4 day schedule provided lots of flexibility to take advantage of opportunities to see unusual sea life based on of the guides, also we were lucky that almost nobody else was diving close to the places we were taken. Our hike with the dragons was on the quieter, less restrictive and more intimate Rinca rather than the big visitor center at Komodo island. Park is not big and diving in the south, central and north was possible and relatively easy. Food was plentiful and especially good for our Peruvian Taste. Service was great; rooms were cleaned every day, dive gear was rinsed, dried between dives, tanks swapped out. All COVID19 procedures followed strictly to prevent any outbreak. Also they told us about the policies they are following to prevent any contagion. We were picked up at the airport by a company rep and private driver and taken wherever we needed to go before the trip started. It was first class service. Our tour operator, Coco, was deeply knowledgeable, energetic and active in helping all of us. She has over a decade of experience as a dive/tour guide, in Komodo and other places in Indonesia. She knows the park and its history well, is familiar with the local politics and is active in management and encouraging sustainable tourism. For example, on our visits to beaches, while we were taking pics, she and the rest of the boat crew picked up bags of plastic trash that had washed ashore. She speaks several languages and all of them very well, so she is really well suited to host any kind of tourist, like us, that our mother tongue is Spanish. Dive guides were knowledgeable and sometimes we divided into two groups based on snorkeling or diving, both groups were very intimate and focused on whatever the members wanted to especially look at each dive. If you are planning a trip to Komodo, I HIGHLY recommend Wunderpus! Everything about our trip was perfect. Once again it is Highly recommended!

Dear Salim and Family, Thank you very much for your glowing review. The Wunderpus family works very hard to make every trip special and we always adapt our schedule to lose the crowds and make sure we get to the divesites and snorkel sites during the perfect tidal movements too. Thank you again for choosing Wunderpus. We were happy to host you and would love to welcome you back on our boat. Maybe next time for your Open Water Course. We hope you had safe travels back to Papua. Say hello to Jean Luc, Gilma and also Nico if he is still in Papua. Best regards Coco and the whole Wunderpus crew

We sailed for 3d/2n with Wunderpus Mimic as a private family trip and had the most amazing time. We sensed from very beginning that we made the right choice to do with Wunderpus Team. First, Ed responded and handled our reservation clearly and promptly via email and whatsapp. Pak Ari as cruise director then took over to guide us and ensure all the Covid and safety protocols were observed before (and during) the trip. We wanted to try scuba dive but he firmly insisted that we obtain a medical clearance as my son had allergies and I tinnitus. We received our clearance but that showed that they make no compromise on safety for its guests. Our dive instructor Dolin was jovial, meticulous and knowledgeable. We were well-feed with delicious Indonesian food and the whole crew did amazing job effortlessly manning the boat and making sure the everything is clean and organised. These guys are genuinely helpful and friendly without pretense. The sea was calm (no worries getting sea sick) and we slept soundly on covered deck. With cool breeze, relaxing sound of the waves, stars and the moon, even the nights were magical. Clearly the 3d/2n was way too short and we hope to back!

Hi Pak Agus, Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a nice review for us, we really appreciate it. The timing of your visit was just perfect I think as there weren’t many people in the Komodo National Park, so it was almost like your own private park ;) It was really a privilege to have you and your family on board. You and your family are super friendly, Dolin and I really enjoyed our time together. Thank you again for choosing us and yeah! we hope to see you and your family again next time. Be safe and please say hi to the family for me. Best, Ari, Dolin, and the Wunderpus family
