Comments Facilities were spacious and of an impressive quality. Outstanding camera room with power conditioners and space for all big rigs. This boat is the beamiest dive boat hands down. You are never bumping into or sidestepping your fellow guests. The pangas are the most spacious anywhere. The care of your camera equipment is above expectations. The food variety; from steaks to lobster to lamb, is prepared like a Michelin starred restaurant. Diving is simply the best. It is what you want for the whole planet. Corals are vast and healthy. Fish populations are all that is advertised, As for the critters; WOW. Every dive was like my first.

The crew was outstanding. Great attitudes. The service was always there without asking. Especially liked Simone. She rocks. The head kitchen guy/Waiter was maybe the hardest working guy in Raja. With a "Benson (Butler)" demeanor. He is well liked. He remembers every guests dietary preferences to how you like your cappuccino in the morning.

I would come back to the DEWI in a heartbeat.
