Outstanding family holidays! We have joined Adelaar last year as a family of four with kids at the age of 14 and 17 years and it was an outstanding experience for all of us. Adelaar is a stunning vessel of 38 meters with 4 beautiful and perfectly designed cabins that can host 8 guests at the highest standards. The very attendant crew did a perfect job starting with breakfast in the morning to our individual order, with the assistance while gearing up before your dives or other watersports activities, your afternoon drinks and snacks until dinner in the evening. We could recharge our batteries between our dives at the shady foredeck for upcoming events. Every night, we have picked out a movie from the choice of hundreds of movies from the multimedia system in our cabin before having a comfy and airconditioned sleep. Komodo’s underwater world is incredible and the diving and water sports experience with the guides of Adelaar’s crew makes it an unforgettable experience. We were lucky to have nice company with the other guests on board and overall our holidays were beyond our expectation, therefore we can just warmly recommend Adelaar and its crew. Attention to all, time flies by faster than you can imagine :-)

The Adellar exclusive liveaboard experience is unforgetable. I had sucha great time there, that I want to go there again. Arriving on the ship, I was welcomed by the crew as if it was family. They were all very kind and friendly. I was included into this "family" directly and felt like I was part of it. The rooms were all nicely decorated and give you that indonesian feeling. On the bed there was a small piece of chocolate to greet me to this journey I was about to begin. I must say that my expectations were more than just exceeded, as it felt like a adventure and luxury trip all at once. The dive site we visited were like a dream come true and something I couldnt imagine ever seeing in my life. I really miss this dream boat and hope to come back again!

Hello I have been many times on the Boat Adelaar and it has been as always a complete blast we had very many options per day as diving with 3 dives a day and if you want you can do a night dive which always is very overwhelming due to seeing the water world in it's rest times in addition you where able to see the majestic creatures a rise out of the dark.

Sailing and diving with Adelaar is a very unique experience. With such a long and checkered history on the high seas, this vessel has somehow retained all of its gorgeous charm and history, whilst being immaculately renovated and superbly crewed (some have been on-board for 25 years), delivering divers to some of the most ridiculously coral-ed places on the planet. Here you pay for INTIMACY - this liveaboard carry's just 8 guests, you pay for DEDICATION and EXPERIENCE - the captain has been with Adelaar 25 years and the Head Chef, 15 years, you pay for fine dining meals, exceptional service and safe, wonderful diving. But you don't have to pay for the love that will grow. That comes free. The owners young boy dream was to buy a boat and sail around the world, which he did on Adelaar - but then, his dream needed to be shared. And so now we too have an opportunity to walk her decks and share in her story. On Adelaar, I was fed amazingly, waited on endlessly and taken to swim with mantas, cruise on currents, dive in warm bubbles at the base of an active volcano, swim with dolphins and gaze in awe at the ridiculous variety of fish and coral life - Every. Single. Day. If you are seeking historic, private luxury, and 10 out of 10 hospitality and service, I have no hesitation in recommending Adelaar. Cathy #cathyfinchphotography

One word - EXCEPTIONAL. I joined Adelaar as a marine biologist and guest for a 10N/11D "Manta Ray Special" trip in Komodo National Park. The trip was nothing short of ocean perfection. The ship itself is a work of art; a spacious deck, the interior design and cabins are stunning. The food was delicious food (with exquisite attention to detail from the most thoughtful host, Nyoman!) and the crew were so warm, friendly and attentive. Komodo is home some of the most fantastic diving in the world and the Adelaar dive guides allowed us to explore this to its full potential. If you are looking for an exceptional boat with an incredible atmosphere and the highest class experience - then it doesn't get much better than this. I miss it already & can't wait to return to the Adelaar for another adventure!
