We actually just dropped in when we saw they had a popcorn machine and were serving free popcorn and coffee. Hugo was really nice to chat with and the dive shop looked really tip top so we decided to go on a day trip with Mikumba Diving in Komodo. The next day we went to mauan, manta point and siaba and it was such a good day! Amazing weather, good diving and the service was really good! I saw tons of mantas, sharks, flambuyont cuttlefish, blue ringed octopus you name it we saw it!!! On the way back they sold beers and served snacks in the sunset, that was really appreciated! Would definitely recommend them to go diving with!

I can Only say it was one of the best weeks of my life. Despite some technical setbacks that forced us to do some changes to the itinerary it was handled in a good way by the Mikumba crew onboard. Good price, comfortable boat, great group, great food and some of the best diving in the world. I would definately choose Mikumba again in the future, perfect value for the money spent. Thank you Mikumba for an amazing week in april of 2018... // Patrik

I did a week with Mikumba on board the Ratu Laut. Hugo was our trip leader and he looked after us all really well. Dive guides were great and the crew were really friendly. Dive sites were outstanding! Food on board was plentiful and delicious. Extra touches like the Manta seminar and the games were much appreciated. The vibe was laid back and friendly and I had a great time - thank you Mikumba!

Myself and my girlfriend did a 7 day liveaboard in February and had the most amazing time imaginable. Aside from the phenomenal marine life and diving (the healthiest reefs we've ever seen, whales at sunset on our first night, more pygmys than you could shake a sturdy stick at, solar powered nudis, devil rays on multiple dives etc etc...) the boat and crew were really what made the trip special.

Great atmosphere on board, nice clean rooms and a phenomenal decking area at the top where we spent each night watching the sun set. Max was a great trip leader and guide and provided strong, informative briefings with a great focus on safety. The captain and boat crew were absolutely superb, amongst the best I have witnessed in many years diving in SE Asia. You never had to lift a finger (special thanks to Erik who sports the most glorious hair in Indonesia.) The food onboard was varied and plentiful, and as vegetarians each lunch and dinner the chef supplied as with a separate non meat dish which was always delicious!

Would highly recommend to anyone, big thanks to Fred for all your correspondence in organizing everything!C
