From the office staff to the boat crew, the food & diving team, we couldn't be happier with our trip. Everyone was very arranging. We stayed in a private island out of LBJ, and they accepted to come pick us up there. Our dive guide Sendy was really good, everyone had a big smile! I have been in Indonesia for now 3 years and work in the diving industry; and I can tell iDive is one of the best diving / day trip experience I ever had. Keep going guys :)

We went out with iDIVE for one day however wished that we could have gone longer!! The staff were professional and organised. We were sorted into groups that fit our experience level of diving, they dropped our group off to the more advanced sites and then took the open water courses to sheltered areas so that every one could make the most of their day. Computer hire is 50k for the day but all other gear is included. I would recommend hiring a computer because in the currenty dives it's hard to stay on the exact level of your instructor so it's difficult to monitor your no deco limits, safety stop time etc without your own. The sites were beautiful. The included "light" breakfast was actually a spread of local pastries such as palm sugar pancakes, honeyed nut stuffed donuts, banana fritters and more. The boat was nice and stable and had a great area to hang out between dives upstairs. Thank you IDIVE! we will be back

The team at Idive are unreal! If your very experienced they let you do some pretty amazing current dives. The current was so strong but it was amazing just to be able to experience it. Lots of sharks and turtles. We only got to see 1 manta but I’m so grateful for the opportunity! The boat was massive compared to some of the boats in the marina. The lunch was plentiful!! Bring a speaker if you have one because we left ours at home and it would of made it awesome. The gear is pretty good, stock standard aqualung BCD’s and aqualung calypso regs, all in working order, no clips/dump valves missing like the last boat I went on out of Labuan bajo. The wetsuits were probably 2/3mm which I thought was going to be freezing but was actually not to bad, the water temp is probably 24ish degrees but you go through heaps of beautiful warm currents.

My girlfriend and I dived with idive for 3 days whilst on vacation in Labuan Bajo. We chose idive as its a locally owned and run dive shop. The service was second to none from the crew, instructors and dive guides. Everyday the breakfast and lunch buffet was superb, all prepared fresh onboard by the chef. the crew assisted you with everything. From setting up, changing your gear over to new tanks between dives and washing all our gear and cameras. The guides were great fun to hang out with on the boat and on the dives the guys literally found everything we wanted to see. There was a few dive sites we really wanted to dive and the office sorted out all the dive sites we wanted including batu balong, cauldron and castle rock. Over the 3 days we had Instructor Ody for 1 day and Dive Guide Nelwan for 2 days, these guys were absolute legends and definitely the best guides we ever had. Overall an amazing experience and will be back for sure!
