    So who has the skinny on this outfit? Searched around and there is not much on it. We are looking at their "Adventurer" liveaboard for 2022 in Raja Ampat/Misool. They say all the right things but I have just not found much in the way of reviews on them and even less since everything has been shut down.

    Hey Guy we are looking at the same boat for a bit later in the season. We could not find much, but we got good terms on their trip - through Blue Water Travel (5% down) - so we're going to go for it - at least for now.

    We found out that they have been in business for a number of years in the Phils, but Indo and RA are new to them from 2018 - that's two seasons there at most. They say they hired experienced DMs from the RA area but I see that as a risk. It's very currenty there. We do have experience and safety equipment for high current dives so we feel fairly comfortable.

    Would love to hear from anyone "recently" on the boat, esp. about the staff and their diving skills.

    I think we are going to do the same for the 21 Dec 21 trip.

    6 pax per DM and the tenders are small. but other than that it seems good. We booked thru Blue Water Travel and they got us excellent terms (5% down and some discounts).
