My family and I have just spent 5 days on Mimic boat diving. What a pleasure it was to have Indonesian instructors show us the best of Indonesia underwater.
My girls (15 & 17) completed their Open Water Course on board with Marcel as their instructor. Thankyou Marcel the girls were taught so well and will never forget who taught them to dive. Loved the experience

We we lucky to have Dolan as a 2nd instructor on the boat! 4 people - 2 Dive instructors- Amazing!!

Marcel and Dolan have completed something incredible like 7000+ dives each , mostly in Komodo! So plenty of knowledge and experience gave us fantastic diving on diverse sites whilst maintaining safety at all times. These guys love their job, will go out of their way to give each person a great experience and show them the best of Komodo diving. Despite the immense number of trips Marcel and Dolan must have lead, they managed to make our trip exciting and memorable and we weren’t left feeling at all like ‘a number’

The boat is great, the crew are amazing, meals were incredible and the diving world class.
If you are new to diving, you will be looked after as safety is considered above all else.
If you are an experienced diver - you won’t be disappointed... we have dived many reefs over many years and Komodo is the best we’ve ever seen.
We’ll be back for more! Thankyou for an amazing holiday

We spent 6 nights 7 days on the Wunderpus boat and the trip could not have been better. The boat was beautiful with great staff and the food was delicious. The diving on our trip was what made this time so spectacular. My partner and I had both just completed our advanced PADI course in the gilis and had around 30 dives under our belts before this trip. Chris the dive instructor and Franche the dive master both had amazing knowledge of the area and were able to get us comfortable in current very quickly. Drift diving was definitely the highlight of the trip - apart from the fun of feeling like you are flying we got to see amazing sea life in the currents like manta, sharks and GT actively hunting and schools of barracuda. Highly recommend this trip to anyone who wants to improve their diving and have amazing diving experiences.

We spent 3 days and 2 nights aboard the Mimic and even though we were "only" snorkelers, it was a thoroughly enjoyable adventure. The boat is very clean and well maintained; comfortable as well. We slept on the top deck which was a very nice opportunity to enjoy the cool breeze and fresh air at night. Food on board was always delicious and abundant. Drinks were extra (a nominal cost) but there was plenty of beer or soft drinks for all. The crew was really helpful and friendly, and professional. There were 6 guests on board, including 4 divers and us, the 2 snorkelers. While this company clearly caters mainly to divers, they managed to cater for everyone's need and made the trip fun and enjoyable for everybody. The 6 of us got along very nicely and I think that the efforts of the crew - especially our two guides, Marsel and Dolin - making sure everyone had their needs met contributed to the camaraderie.
The snorkeling was outstanding, with the guides taking us to fantastic, healthy coral reefs. There were some major added attractions, including hiking on Komodo Island to view the dragons and a treat at sunset one evening when the "flying foxes" took off overhead in their nightly quest for food. All in all a trip to remember forever and to highly recommend.

As international teachers, our family of four travels a LOT. For this trip, we spent 3 weeks in Indonesia--Bali, Nusa islands, then 4 nights on Mimic liveaboard. Being on the Mimic was my all time favorite, family vacation experience so far!!!

Our two kids are older (13 and 10), so they could participate in the water activities (13 year old dives, 10 year old snorkels). We did not expect to have a designated "snorkel master" for our 10 year old, so we were thrilled the rest of us could dive since our daughter had her own "snorkel buddy," Leri (who was great with her and even had some water tricks, btw).

We were thoroughly impressed with Marsel, our dive instructor. He was very friendly, good-natured, and not only helped our 13 year old get his Advanced cert during the four days, he taught him a couple more songs on the guitar!

And, yes, it's true, the FOOD IS DELICIOUS!! We all thoroughly enjoyed the time on the boat, the time in the water, and the hike on Padar Island. So much natural beauty. Oh, and there is a sunset surprise...

We spent 2N3D on the Mimic boat (their "budget" option). The boat is very well maintained and comfortable. Food on board was really delicious (breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner). The crew was really helpful and friendly, dive masters were fun and professional. There were 6 guests on board, including 4 divers and 2 snorkelers. They managed to cater for everyone's need and made the trip fun and enjoyable for everybody.

The diving were fantastic. We made 9 dives in total, including 1 night dive which was the best night dive I had so far. We had dived in many places such as Red sea, Mozambique, Maldives, Similan Islands, Komodo is definitely among our top picks. And we will definitely recommend Wunderpus Liveaboard to everyone.
