À faire et à refaire !

Nous avons eu la chance de croiser des dauphins dans le bleu à brothers. Beaucoup de longimanus ainsi que des requins marteaux, requins renard et requins gris de récifs. Abondance des coraux et des petits poissons de récifs. Tout ce qui nous a manqué cest la macro mais en même temps la croisiere BDE cest le gros et a ce niveau là on a été servis ! 1 plongée de nuit assez belle (danseuses espagnoles, raie torpille et beaucoup de vie en general). Et encore une fois un staff tres gentil et a l'écoute qui se plie en quatre pour passer une super croisiere.

Recommended for
-visibilité, vie sous marine (coraux et poissons) et conditions de plongée parfaites ! ; -ambiance conviviale avec un équipage au top ; -guide qui sait nous mettre en sécurité (briefings complets avec plusieurs plans selon les courants...) tout en nous laissant beaucoup d'autonomie et de liberté sous l'eau

Expectations well met!

Actually seeing every shark you could expect to see and more; drinking and chatting with people from all over the world and be surprised for dinner with fresh caught fish.

Recommended for
All of the people (including crew and fellow divers); the beauty of the sites visited and the special care taken in the food.
