Pirates Bay is a professional and very personal company to book a liveaboard. They are transparent and patiently and answered all my questions with no delays and took away all my worries. The 7 day Raja Ampat diving trip on the Mikumba2 was out of this world. Amazing crew and facilities on a very spacious boat. Besides diving and delicious meals in between dives, they organise fun beach trips, villages visits and paddle boarding. I am 110% satisfied with Pirates Bay and Mikumba2 and will certainly come back! Thank you very much dear Julie and Romain.

Many thanks for Jeremy, Hugo, Carles, Ka Chong, Fadly, Noon, Em, Captain and the rest of the wonderful crew on Mikumba 2 who made Christmas extra special! The beautiful and spacious private charter boat makes you feel right at home but it's the heart and soul of the crew that made the difference. Our days were very well planned with a mix of diving, drinks and strolls along sunset beaches, paddle boarding, canoeing and visiting local villages. The crew goes out of their way to accommodate any guests requests and take heart to what the guests prefers and prepares for them the next day. Highly recommended for an exceptional experience of Raja Ampat!

Big thanks to Julie and Romain who were incredibly responsive and very patient with my many questions! We booked a 10 day liveaboard on the Teman, diving in some of the most beautiful spots in Misool. The communications were helpful and clear and process of booking was very straightforward. We received a clear itinerary and accurate description of the boat. Transfers from the airport to the boat were arranged and we didn't have to worry about anything. The Teman boat is beautiful - crafted in Sulawesi in a traditional style with many lovely wooden features and an open plan dining and relaxation area that we didn't see in other boats. The cabin was en suite with hot water, thoughtful design, AC and lots of storage space. The communal area had huge beanbags, lots of charging points for equipment, in addition to the rooftop space - perfect for sunsets. The chef, Nasir, prepared delicious European/Asian meals every day. Alain, the boat owner, was a wonderful host and Stuart and Jack were knowledgeable dive guides. The rest of the crew were also super friendly and professional - the operations were flawless. We were able to paddleboad, stop at deserted islands, dive in incredible sites and see the most wonderful marine life including manta rays, turtles, bright corals. It was really an exceptional holiday and we would **highly** recommend Pirates Bay and the Teman experience.

After searching for the best cruising company, we finally choose Pirate's Bay Cruising which seems to be the most serious and professional regarding the reviews and feedback. We were not disappointed at all ! From the beginning with the reservation agent (Romain) who follow us before the arrival to the life onboard, all was exceptional. The captain and his team lead us to the most beautiful place around Flores Island. We spent all the time in the water, crossing multicolor fish, turtles and Mantas. The atmosphere on board was friendly and we met several people with all around the world. Special mention to the chef feasted us during the cruise. 3 days on board was not long enough and we did not want to join the mainland. We will definitely try an other route for our next time in Indonesia I hope, so many amazing things to discover in this mysterious country. Thank you so much Pirate's bay cruising for this unbelievable experience !
