this is all the owner cares for. Of course you are in business to make profit but everything has limit and some balance
We are party of 3 (2 experienced divers and one snorkeler) and the main reason we did make reservation with this company because they had Manta point on itinerary for the day we wanted to dive. When already on the boat we learned that they picked up 2 people doing the introduction to diving and we were not going to Manta point. After some hard negotiation they made arrangement so we did go there.
The other thing is the equipment. The wet suite were tearing apart, but It was beyond just cosmetic "problems" Often it was safety hazard the first stage regular was leaking , one quite bit inexperienced diver at the first dive did find that her regulator was malfunctioning. Fortunately the crew on the boat was very good and did take care of the problem. On other BCD was the air connection leaking quite bit
One of diver from our group was diving with other company in Labuan Bajo so he can compare
The only positive was the crew on the boat particularly Max , the intern was very helpful and friendly Of course everybody can make own judgement, but it is very hard to recomand this company

We dove for two days with Bajo dive and loved every minute! Dive masters Ariana and Patrice were excellent, sharing their knowledge freely. They chose the dive sites for us and and all were absolutely amazing! Hands down, the diving in Komodo is the richest biodiversity we've ever seen!! We also appreciated Patrice explaining about local culture. Highly recommended - we'll be back!

I took five dives there and really enjoyed staying on the boat and talk and of course the dives. Everything is well prepared, detailed briefings about the sites, current etc.
it also includes a warm and very delicious meal on board with the crew. Depending on the boat you have fatboys to relax between the dives.
They also organize trips to Rinca and snorkeling.
Their resorts coconut beach is also very lovely and calm.
Good stay!

I did 4 days Liveaboard in November. Myself I am dive instructor and there were only 3 other nice guests. So everything seemed fine but then .... Our guide was the owner of the company and you could really see he lost his passion for diving a long time ago. The other divers were beginners (less then 50 dives) which would be ok, but Komodo conditions are tricky and Frank didn´t explained anything about current or how to behave. Visibility was very bad at that time but a nice guide would make up for it ....Also the boat was not really good. Electricity only 30 % of time, only one very simple shower for all, air condition also working only sometimes....overall not a good choice, there are many more in Flores to choose from. After that I had only one day and booked dive trip with other company and was very happy.
