This is my second time aboard the Indo Siren. The boat and crew were just as wonderful - if not even more attentive than my visit in 2014. Everything from the boat's cleanliness, to the delicious meals to the quality of the dive briefings and our guides in finding amazing critters went above and beyond the norm, and my norm is 5* Siren Fleet!
Raja Ampat itself was simply stunning. The cruise director was very flexible with our schedule as we were a group of photographers and wished to maximise the best light and visibility for our photos. We spent 6 days diving the southern area around Misool an 2.5 days diving the north around Mansour and the Dampier Strait. For the most part we concentrated on wide angle shots but our guides foundus some wonderful critters including pygmy seahorse- 4 different varieties, pom pom crabs, hairy shrimps, nudis and toadfish.We were also lucky with the amount of sharks spotted from wobbegongs and black tips to the tiny epaulette shark.
Everything was well planned and well thought out to provide our group with the best possible dives. The service was impeccable and the yacht spacious with excellent facilities to suit our needs.
Huge thanks to all the crew of the Indo Siren for making it such a memorable experience -i'll be back!
