The best experience of my life.
I spent 7 days on Ratu Laut and completely loved it. The boat is great, comfortable rooms, hot shower, nice places to chill and sunbathing. The crew was spectacular, always ready to help and full of smiles. The food was delicious and as flexible as possible concerning passengers preferences. And the diving sites, equipment, DM were awesome. In addition, Ratu Laut is part of the Barefoot Conservation, which does a great work with the people and reefs of Raja Ampat that we visited. So being in their boat also support their work in the area. I definitely recommend it.

Paradise found: Ratu Laut, the dream making crew
Experiencing Raja Ampat with dive masters who truly love the place is a major highlight. It was apparent that the crew knew what they were doing and the knowledge they passed to us enriched the entire experience. The entire focus of the trip was dive dive dive and we never missed a beat.
Recommended for: I would say the location was the best thing and dive sites, but never have I had the pleasure to sail with such an amazing crew who created the experience of a lifetime. Wendy, our leader, put together an action packed week and still managed to keep it chill. The entire time felt like a itinerary tailor made for the small amount of guests on board. And knowing our money is going towards conservation efforts is a major bonus as well.
Great diving with fun people
The dive locations timing were fantastic. The crew started by getting everyone comfortable in the Indonesian dive environment and with currents, then planned the dives so that each dive got a bit better as the cruise when on. Fantastic experience, friendly staff, and the price couldn't be beat. During our dives, the dive masters were great at pointing out micro flora and fauna that might otherwise be missed, and we regularly ran into sharks, mantas, barracudas, and school upon school of fish at our various dive locations.
