Malapascua-Leyte, Philippines in July
1. Good diving, but just two night dives instead of five suggested as possible initially;
2. Satisfactory boat condition but not more than that, toilet in our cabin was not working properly during the trip, the boat is showing its age in overall;
3. Pierlo (boat owner) is really professional in guiding his team, on deck and in the water;
4. Just a little bit of strange feeling being in the boat saloon, comparable to entering into someone's private zone due to some owner's stuff "permanently" allocated there, but that is not frustrating anyway.
Variety of dive sities, good weather, good service by the crew
Great diving in relaxed athmosphere with delicious food
Tubbataha Seadoors, Philippines in May
Great diving: we saw many mantas, sharks, giant barracudas, turtles in a wonderland of corals, rocks and white sand. Great walls and lovely coral gardens in every dive spot.
Nice and friendly crew, people you want to have as friends.
And a great food - the cook must be a magician to prepare that food in a relatively small boat with a tiny kitchen. Is was more like a 5 star hotel.
Relaxed, familiar athmosphere.
I will definitely try to go on that boat again.

Malapascua-Leyte, Philippines in January
Great trip overall. Despite inclement whether shutting down diving for a whole day (they said that's the first time that's ever happened), we still managed only one less dive than a normal trip.
Only complaints were that 1) The room I was in constantly smelled like a port-a-john, unrelated to our own bathroom. I think it was due to ventilation being connected to the kitchen. 2) The incidental charges (gear rental, nitrox, flashlight, park fees, crew tip) really added up more than I expected, driving the price a few hundred dollars over what I thought it would cost.
In the end though, it was worth it. Being on a liveaboard offers you great access to the dive sites, and with the exception of thresher shark diving in Malapascua, we were the only group at every site.
Food is impressively delicious; diving is well-organized and super convenient; crew is friendly and helpful
Whale Sharks and Thresher Sharks
Malapascua-Leyte, Philippines in December
There is much to like about Seadoors. The boat is in good condition and comfortable although the loungeroom is not really available for relaxing as some of the crew sleep there. So don't expect to watch videos after dinner or between dives.
The cabins are, of course, small but not as small as I've seen. I travelled alone and was bunked up with another woman - unfortunately the cabins are really not designed for two single people - to access the top bunk and storage you have to stand on the bed below. But the port holes next to the top bunk were large and opened. Fantastic!
The dive deck is small but good - the chase boats are great including custom designed and built ladders which make it really easy to get back into the boat - really appreciate that. And the crew were very helpful. Unfortunately we didn't get introduced to most of the crew which I would have liked.
I wasn't all that impressed with the diving - some of it was great - and I loved the snorkel with the whale sharks. The coral was good but I'm not really into micro-stuff and there just weren't that many fish. Don't get me wrong - I'd say half the dives were great - but that means half were a bit ordinary - especially if like me you don't like night muck dives.
Thresher shark experience was pretty under-whelming - three dives and saw maybe three sharks and only one close enough to count.
My biggest problem with the Seadoors experience is that the owner/operator runs it all a little unstructured - so I never had any advance notice of when dives were likely to be. I really like a schedule so that I can work out when I have time for a nap and when I don't. I know things can change depending on weather and tides an current but I'd really like best guess info in advance.
The owner/operator is French and a great diver. He targets the European market - pricing all in Euros which was confusing for me as an Aussie - by the time I'd been told everything in Euros (some of which additional expenses I didn't expect) and then told what the exchange into Pesos was (and nothing was ever written written down for me - just verbal) and I was trying to manage my money - I felt all confused and a bit resentful.
So, overall the trip wa still an 8/10 - of course - I got to go diving somewhere fantastic for 5 days - but just a few things to be aware of.
Great group; Availability of 15l tanks and great ladders for climbing back into the chase boats; New Year's Eve party
