Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was my second excursion on this beautiful wooden sailship. We had alot of underwater fun! Four dives a day, multiple days in a row can be tiring but thanks to the professional instructors and helpful crew everything went so smooth and easy. Our Cabin was super comfortable and you could see every day, that the gourmet food made everyone extra happy! For the next trip we will get a underwater camera, too - so much to see, so much to remember

This was my first liveaboard and everything was exceptional! The boat is clean and comfortable. The staff are so friendly and helpful. They go the extra mile to make your trip memorable! Thank you to Ben and Steve for helping me find a gopro case last minute. Special shout out to Casey for his contagious smile and positivity! Perfect trip!

The boat was wonderful, and the people were even better. My experience on The Junk was a great one. The dives, food, and atmosphere on the boat was amazing! The staff were very caring and helpful throughout the entire trip. The diving was great! I would recommend this boat and this crew to anyone who loves diving and wants a great experience on a truly unique and remarkable boat. I look forward to repeating this trip again in the future!

The Phinisi is a different Liveaboard experience. The vessel is fascinating and boarding in it having such incomparable environment around creates a magic experience. The crew is highly professional and nice. And the food is top.

Awesome boat with great dives. Food was very good and staff very friendly and professional. Did 14 dives on 4 days. Schedule was 5D/4N but the first day started 7pm so you can’t really count. Overall I am very satisfied with the total package which includes also transfers to the boat and after. Thanks to the Junk staff for the relaxed atmosphere and time on board the Junk.

This is by far the best liveaboard experience. Not your average dive boat, but a vintage wooden sailship. Super professional crew, both boat crew and dive crew. High standard security, relaxed diving and very good and delicious food.
This was my 8th trip with this company, for good reason.
Recommended 100 percent!
I will be back

Such a delightful trip, the boat is beautiful and so are all the dive sites. The crew is amazing and full of care. Chok is the best dive guide and instructor ive ever had. Definitely worth going.

Such a great experience, no points of improvement at all. Staff was amazing-- the ship was the most beautiful out there. Seriously, if I had booked any other liveaboard I would have been so jealous. Great for solo travelers, great value for price. I'll do another with them for sure! Shout out to Brian, Choc, and the kitchen crew.

The boat is stunning, the crew just... anything you need and even more, everything is well organized, Brian is taking care of the whole thing ;-)
The food is excellent, just many too much of it but it is up to you not to end up with extra kilos (it is so yummy) ;-) at least you have all you need for the 4 dives a day, the cabin is everything you need, very clean, this boat had lots of space and very well made for diving, chilling, do your yoga on the upper part, be together outside (big table area) during the meal and a nice space more inside with air con, fans, where we all meet for dives briefings.... many thanks to everybody, so. happy to have had this experience, I wasn't too comfortable with all the liveonboards offers, thanks Steeve and everyone for that "susu nah"
