“What more could you ask for if all the things and services that you need are given to you? From comfy cabins, to good facilities, incredibly-helpful staff and great service, MSV Amira has it all to achieve an extraordinary diving experience. The boat is well-designed and well-kept. Although it was almost full when I had my trip, there was still enough space for everyone. The crew showed their welcoming gesture by giving us fresh towels after every dive.
The whole crew was absolutely willing to help out. Some even helped me rinsed my gear. I was in awe with the divers who guided us because all of them were stupendous in identifying the marine organisms we met along the way even the minutest ones. Diving in Rajah Ampat was an exhilarating experience for me. The dive sites were mesmerizing, the coral reef formations were beautiful and the itinerary and service of MSV Amira made diving more fun and enjoyable!
I am a naturally shy person but the crew made me and the rest of the guests feel comfortable. They have fine set of SCUBA equipment. Their equipment was well-taken cared of. I am grateful to one of the crew who allowed me to rent a computer when mine suddenly froze. There is a variety of food. Most of the local and international dishes served were delicious. They also served us cakes and tea for afternoon snacks.
I’m thankful that I went on board with MSV Amira for they created a remarkable Rajah Ampat experience for me!”
