We were in Raja Amapat with the Siren team during December and had a great trip, good calm weather, well taken care of with the Siren high level of service, and amazing dives. Gary was a super trip leader, with the ability to resolve any minor issues, help with any technical problems and find great spots for us to dive. The dive briefings were through, and professional, especially the digital content. The group we shared the trip were all very nice friendly people. Thanks to Siren, cant wait for the next trip
The diving was amazing from the very very small to the very very big. The crew and dive team were excellent (which is the norm for the Siren fleet) with great food too. The boat was very comfortable, although the cabin was showing signs of wear and tear. The dive deck is excellent - plenty of space for people and equipment.
The diving was awesome and so was the boat and crew! The water was 86F in December and there was tons of thriving coral and sea life -- a tropical paradise. The boat was clean, comfortable, spacious, beautiful, and enjoyable; and the food was delicious. The crew was very friendly and helpful and the diving staff was very professional, safety orientated, and FUN. I felt that they even customized the dive safari (type of diving sites, some kayaking, and brief land excursions) to meet the preferences of the specific divers that were aboard. THANKS again to Timo, Kathy and all of the crew! Best, Rich
Everything was excellent and I am not sure how I will ever find another live-aboard holiday to match the experience of the Indo Siren and Raja Ampat. Other divers on the boat who have dived in many of the other exotic parts of the world, stated that Raja Ampat would be difficult to better.
The water is very warm - 29 to 30c, I was very comfortable in a 2 5 mm shortie suit is all that is required but some divers f preferred a full suit simply for protection from scrapes etc and night diving. The wildlife is amazing - mantas, sharks, Dolphins, turtles and fantastic corals.
It is a long way to travel but worth all the effort and expense
From they picked us up at the hotel in Sorong, we felt that these people will take care of us. Their hospitality and friendship was outstanding. Nice cabins good food and marvelous diving with our dive guide Kathy. This organization can highly be recommended
Just wrapped up a 10 day cruise on Indo Siren and wish I could extend to another trip! Every single dive was incredible. The crew was service oriented and friendly. I'll be back!
We have been on trip with the indo siren, raja ampat, 10 day trip.

Without a doubt this has been my best liveaboard to date. All the staff on Indo Siren have cared for us exceptionally well. They are all professional and the extra attention to the finer details of making our holiday special shows. Every meal was delicious, every dive had something new to see. Warm towels and hot chocolate waiting for you after a night dive....... Wonderful! I will be back!
So often on a ten day liveaboard there will be a few dives that barely register as memorable; the Indo Siren safari in Raja Ampat offered spectacular diving on every occasion, dive after dive after dive. You didn't dare miss one for a very justifiable fear that you would miss out on a blue-ringed octopus or a brace of wobbegongs. The soft corals were outstandingly beautiful - breathtakingly colourful and in such pristine condition that it was a privilege to be in the same waters. The boat itself, like all the Siren Fleet was first class: excellent staff, facilities, accommodation and cuisine. If you haven't been yet, book that ticket!
Raja Ampat was the best place I've ever dived and exceeds its reputation for amazing diving. The Indo-Siren took us to numerous sites, all of which were outstanding. The crew was excellent at spotting all kinds of things including nudibranches, pygmy seahorses, frogfish, pipefish, etc. The food was excellent and catered to all tastes .
Getting the ideal Dive Experience is a great feeling and few things compare the perfect dive. Having said that, everyone’s definition of a perfect dive greatly varies but one thing that would be useful to any diver is information.
