We recently completed an 11 night dive trip on board this vessel. The boat itself is a joy. Large comfortable cabins, great food and a fabulous crew. Plenty of communal living spaces to relax between dives too. The diving was out of this world. Some of the best we have ever done. We would boo again in a heart beat. In fact we are just about to book with the same boat to dive in Komodo next year.

This is the second time we have travelled on Mermaid 1 last time was to Komodo this time was to Raja Ampat. i have to say the crew on this boat are fantastic they are so helpful and genuine in their aim to please. They all work well together and deliver exceptional service. The boat is immaculately clean and in each cabin is a tv loaded with 100s of films to watch. The scenery in Raja Ampat is stunning and underwater the corals are second to none. We had fantastic dives on three occasions with manta rays. We had four dive guides between 13 guest our guide was PJ who is also the boat director he is proffesional and aims to accommodate all your requests, he is also a fantastic videographer. Cannot wait to book our next trip with Mermaid
