Why do we like Waow?
What’s not to like? She’s a fine vessel at over 50 meters in length and with more staff than guests you’re going to be well looked after. You’ll get to experience some of the finest diving in Indonesia on this liveaboard and feel like you’re on a true adventure.
That’s great but looks pricey!
Okay this doesn’t come cheap. You’re looking at around £3750 for a 11 night safari in either Komodo or Raja Ampat. We have noticed that they are willing to offer the odd last minute discount – usually around £500 per person if they haven’t filled the trip within 2 months of departure. In Waow liveaboards case we really think you get what you pay for.
When is the best time to travel on Waow?
Depends on the type of diving you’re looking for. Waow covers alot of ground in Indonesia – pretty much focusing on the eastern territories, where the richest diversity of life is. Below is a map to give you an idea. Typical seasons are diving in Komodo during April to October and diving in Raja Ampat from October to April. They offer ‘Crossing Trips’ when the boat is moving locations and goes ‘off piste’ which we also recommend considering if you’re looking for a little bit more of an exploratory trip. All in all we think you get amazing diving throughout this region – sure you won’t be disappointed
I can’t stretch the budget – any alternatives?
There’s plenty of choice of Indonesia Liveaboards that cover similar routes to the ones shown in the map above. Waow is certainly for someone looking for an extra bit of luxury – it’s a special trip ideal for a honeymoon, retirement celebration or any other excuse to splurge <insert here> . For example Black Manta is a steel hull liveaboard run by an excellent crew that covers similar ground.
