We had a fantastic day trip with Ora dive to Rinca to see the Komodo dragons and to Padar Island for the view. It was the highlight of our 10 days in Bali and Java. We booked a private speedboat for our family of 4 since we were making this a day trip from Nusa Dua. Shana was very responsive to my early emails and, when our plans changed and I needed to book the trip with less than 1 day notice, it was no problem. The view from Padar was magical, breathtaking, really amazing. Although our time in Rinca was short, we got to see 5 or 6 large adults near the ranger area, one guarding her nest, and two small ones wandering around elsewhere, as well as wild pigs and buffalo. The Komodos are amazing beasts and it is a special experience to get up close to them in the wild. The boat was fast and clean, lunch was good, and they even brought us towels although we didn't have time to snorkle. The boat ride was lovely too; amazing scenery. I wish our time there had been longer. I cannot recommend Ora dive enough. They are more expensive than others but 100% reliable, service-oriented, friendly, and flexible.

this might not be the cheapest out there but the service is just top notch. the staffs are very friendly. they provide soft drinks, energy drinks and water, bananas and lunch. they are very helpful and the tour is one of the best i've ever done. i did the padar-komodo-pink beach tour. i recommend you to travel with this tour for 2 full days as one day is absolutely not enough. easily the best.

My son and I did the one day trip to Padar-Komodo-pink beach-manta point-and a sandy exotic island . It was a truly memorable experience we highly recommend them to anyone . Shana replied promptly to emails and texts, not always typical for most of Indonesian service providers and her English is excellent . Shana, knew how to answer our queries and helped us a great deal , she sometimes replied within a few hours which gave us confidence that this company was professional . They were extremely friendly and helpful during the whole trip and very organized as well . The whole group really enjoyed the food they provided, the food was excellent and nicely presented the hygiene standards were excellent , which can be an issue in Indonesia at times. Also plenty of water, bananas and sodas on the boat . The boat was great and very fast speed boat, with 2 engines and all safety equipment necessary . Also they had really excellent staff - Chandra the owner is a delight as well as all the people on the boat . They made sure we had an excellent experience . They love their work and island it was so obvious . I highly recommend Ora Dive they are truly amazing . I have travelled a lot in Asia and they are very professional and I look forward to booking another trip with them . Shana and Chandra thank you for such a memorable experience

I booked a private cruise with Ora dives based on reviews on the blonde abroad. Very happy to have chosen to pay more (compared to classic tours) to have a private boat just for ourselves and amazing staff to take care of us and suit our needs. Also, the speedboat is a real plus to explore the area because the park is actually huge and it takes time to go from an island to an other. Thank you Chandra and your time for taking care of us.

We did the one day trip to Padar-Komodo-pink beach-manta point-and a sandy exotic island (don't know the name).Overall It was an amazing experience and we highly recommend them to anyone for the following reasons : 1) replying promptly to emails and texts, not so typical for most of Indonesian service providers. Shana, was responding to our emails within less than an hour, which made us feel that these guys are professional! 2) very organized ; we were the only group provided with trekking sticks, while the rest of the tourists were struggling to climb to Padar island 3) food provided was excellent and clean ", which usually is an issue in Indonesia. Also plenty of water, bananas and sodas!! 4) very good and fast speed boat, with 2 engines and all safety equipment 5) last but not least, we were a group of 6 and had 3 people escorting us plus the captain! 6) finally, we felt that they were more interested in making us have fun and see things; while we finished our sightseeing earlier than expected, they suggested to visit an other island, which was amazingly remote and beyond exotic place. Highly recommend Shana and her team if you want to have a SAFE and PLEASANT TOUR. English level perfect!
