    Fantastic dive experience Verified review

    We both enjoyed our time on the MatahariKu, the diving was excellent with very skilled dms at interesting and varied dive sites. The crew were warm and extremly accommodating. Every dinner was a full 3 course meal, with exceptional tastes ( easily the best dining we have experienced on a live-aboard) . We also enjoyed the brief excursions off the boat on the volcanic islands to watch spectacular sun sets, seeing the Komodo dragons was a once in a lifetime experience , finally ending with our last night drinking cocktails on the boat anchored off a small island watching thousands of giant fruit bats soaring high over our heads.
