We had an amazing time with Wunderpus Liveaboard from 26 to 30 December 2020. We are 2 families residing in Jakarta, 9 people onboard. Sleeping arrangement was perfect for us. There are 4 cabin rooms. Two of them are with queen size beds, each sleeps two teenage kids. The other two are a bit spacier with queen bed and a single bunk bed, each sleeps 2 parents + 1 kid.
Coco, our cruise director, is very very very good. She is super sharp in schedule, and strict for our safety. She is very knowledgeable and always seemed to spot what most dive guides couldn’t do underwater. It’s like she knows where each marine creature lives, maybe she even has befriended them.
The crew is exceptional. They made us as if we were their own family, welcoming us warmly and assisting us in the friendliest manner. They really made us feel like home.
As for the marine life, words cannot express how beautiful it is.. very very rich varieties of sea creatures, day and night.
It was an unforgettable dive trip with Wunderpus Liveaboard. We think we are spoiled now, don’t know if we could ever get the same level of liveaboard diving experience again with others…
