Comments Amira is a custom built, 120 foot boat. It regularly dives Raja Ampat, Komodo, and Triton Bay. I did an 11 night trip through the southern and northern parts of Raja, a huge area from Misool in the South to the Dampier Strait in the North. 3 dives a day, and on most nights, a night dive. Dinner is served after the night dive, about 8:30.

Hello - this is Gabrielle from MSV AMIRA. I would like to comment on the above report. First of all - thanks Victor, I am glad, you had an amazing dive holiday on AMIRA! MSV AMIRA is 170 ft (52m) - while AMIRA is SWISS/ German s owned, our clientele during the year is very much COSMOPOLITAN - as we welcome guests from US to Australia, from SOUTH AFRICA to Spain, Turkey, Poland, Denmark, Netherlands, Austria, France, UK - and also from Asia. Our dive Ratio is 4/5:1 dive guide. MSV AMIRA has 8 double/twin bed cabins and 2 single cabins! - maximum 18 GUESTS. I am glad, dear Victor, you like out food and that you did not lose weight!! Most divers gain wight while aboard AMIRA ..:) thanks Victor and terima kasih to our dedicated, hard working CREW - Gabrielle - MSV AMIRA
