Best boat experience & Labuan Bajo tour ever!
Honestly the best boat trip and crew ever!!
My colleague and I stayed on Rafida Liveaboard for a good two days and got to experience and see so many great sights around Labuan Bajo. The crew was amazing and the food was even greater! (Made fresh for you every single day!!)
The toilets and bedroom were so clean and cosy. There's honestly not much to complain about Rafida. They really look out for their guests and goes out of their way to ensure that the guests are having a great time!!
It was nice to know the crew, including the local guide. They were all so friendly and welcoming!! Local guide, Jon was so informative and friendly!! If there are any questions about Labuan Bajo or the activities, he'll be sure to educate you with his extensive knowledge.
Honestly, will go again with my family and friends! The experience was remarkable!! It sounds too good to be true - but it is!! Highly recommend to everyone to give Rafida a try!
Thank you Rafida Liveaboard!
Truly excellent boating holiday
We had a 2 night boat trip which we thoroughly enjoyed. It was suitable for our whole family of 7 including Grandparents and an 8 year old child, the crew were all very friendly and helpful with any requests.
Food was great and plenty of it. Beer can be bought but you need to request what you want before the trip as they only had the Bintang lemonade Radler on board, or you can buy at the local shops and bring your own to be safe, which we did.
The bedrooms were clean and comfortable, large enough but not enormous, so best not to bring huge suitcases as it is a boat not a cruise ship. There was some noise from the compressor motor used to run the A/C at night, especially on the lower deck bedroom, but not too bad, it didn't keep us awake.
One big bonus is the great photos they offer with the trip, they use a drone to take some amazing shots of these beautiful islands. We managed to do a lot of snorkeling, all equipment was provided, the crew showed us the best spots, there is quite a bit of coral bleaching but still some great unspoilt areas with lots of fish, also on this trip is one of the few chances you can get to experience seeing Komodo dragons, which you can get quite close to.
It's probably best described as something in between glamping and a cruise ship, the crew really made us feel like part of the family which made it a very enjoyable and memorable experience which we would recommend.
Best Vacation with Great Service
The boat so instagramable it's comfortable, clean, and really nice.
All crew and guide are helpful and serve us well. They also serves delicious meals along the trip.
Cabin are spacious and full of AC.
Trip arrangements really on point and scheduled.
Will recommend you to use ravida on your trip to labuan bajo. It's important to have a great experience on board during the sailing trip, because you are in the middle of the ocean and i bet you will never regrets to use ravida
A best trip with best moment in Labuan Bajo
Thank for crew.... So humble and very helpful. Overall this boat is very nice. Tour leader very communicated with the guest. One best moment i ever had is i can swim with almost 30 Manta....and i call it that a lucky✌️. Thank to Rafida crew.. Thank for your services.... See u in next trip.
Honestly this trip was amazing, the staff will take care of you like you are part of their family, the food they made for us everyday was fresh and delicious, we had chicken, fish, vegetables, rice and much more. The staff was always kind, waited for us when we got to the land and helped us with whatever we needed. We also met Nico which is a photographer that was working with Rafida at the time of our trip and Nico is absolutely amazing, If you book a trip with Rafida in the future MAKE SURE you ask them if Nico can come. He helped us get amazing drone footage and he had a gopro hero 7 so we got insane shots underwater thanks to him!
This trip was honestly an 11 out of 10, it was amazing.
In review, amazing locations, incredible staff, delicious food and super nice rooms for the price you pay.
Thank you Rafida for such a great trip!
