As soon as I started to speak to the staff member when inquiring I felt at ease as he certainly knew his stuff and answered all my questions. I'm new to diving and had heard about some of the strong currents in that area, but he made sure that the trip I was on wasn't near the worst ones. He did explain that depending on the current we may have some drift diving but put my mind at ease on this. The whole process was very professional, after chatting they took me to get all my gear sized and showed me the quality of the gear i would be using. The day its self was awesum, 3 dives during the day seeing Stingray, Shark, and heaps of Turtles and of course the most amazing marine life and coral I've ever seen. The day went smoothly, not rushed with the correct time met between dives. Food was nice and the crew were professional but also a good laugh, we all got on like mates! Its not the cheapest of the dive centers in Flores, but I highly recommend them
We did a 3 day liveaboard trip with Divine Diving and had one of the best experiences of our whole 5 month Southeast Asia trip! The staff were AMAZING, Juvens was our dive master/instructor the whole time and he made the trip for us! Not to mention, the rest of the staff was incredible as well. The boat was very nice, the food was outstanding, and the whole organization and professionalism of the trip was top notch. We did 9 dives on the trip and the diving was world class! The dive equipment was well taken care of and functioned great and we always felt safe diving with Juvens and Venan. We saw some of the most beautiful coral we have ever seen and were also able to see manta rays, sharks, huge schools of fish and many other marine animals! I cannot recommend this company enough if you are looking to dive in Komodo National Park, Flores.
We had the pleasure of going on a 3 day live aboard to the northern waters of Komodo National Park with Divine in November. The entire crew at Divine was spectacular from when we first met Patrick in the office, to our first and final interactions with our dive masters and guides Jouvens and Venon. Not only are they professional and friendly, they are welcoming and incredibly fun to be around. We made great friends with everyone on board including the crew members. Their dive knowledge was perfect and they were both a pleasure to be with underwater. I can't wait until I have the chance to be back there again!
I decided to do my divemaster for two months at Divine diving after a lot of emails and a long conversation with Luke. And I'm so happy I decided to do it with them. I really love divine. The people who work there feels like an extra family and Labuan Bajo feels like an extra home.
For me the environment is important and I like that Divine try to reduce their carbon footprint. For example they try to not use any single use plastic and they always pic up trash. They work together with a lot of NGO's and they try to influence other to also care about the environment.
In all their briefings they involve how to react to different animals and they would never let divers chase or harass any type of animal. They are also carful about the corals and would never use or let any other boat use an anchor that could destroy a reef.
Divine always put safety first. They dive in small groups and always make sure that you're comfortable and safe. They also make sure that the crew knows how to handle an emergency if something would happen which I think is very important.
Thank you to all the instructors, divemasters, the Naring-, office- and Weta Molas crew, Marij and Luke for making my summer to one of the best! Divine diving is beautiful company and I'm so happy I where able to spend a couple of weeks with you.
Me and my husband been diving with Divine Diving for 3 days 2 night. It was awesome!!! The staff there took care of us reallyyyyy well!
We def did nothing during the cruise, beside the diving, eat and sleep! Once we woke up on the morning, there is Tarsi who will offer you a tea/coffee with some snacks, tide up the room, and all area around the boat, also after the dive he also served us snacks / meal.
And for the diving part, the staff always set the equipment up, what we did is just to put it on, and ready to go!!! Marten is our guide on that time, he is really good guide! Speak well english, funny and with Hito, they always explain us enough about the dive site before jump into the water. Marten spotted quite a lot of stuff to us! We've been lucky went with him!
As people who also worked in dive center for years, to see how you all take care of your guests, we give you all thumbs up guys!
It was quite short time for us, but hey no choice! The holiday always short! So next time we will comeback to you guys, again, to explore another dive sites around Komodo!!!
p.s Just a small detail, if you can let our equipment well dry before we pick it up, that will be great, our equipment quite smelly on that time as its so humid inside the bag.
