Fantastic time onboard discovery

The crew onboard discovery really couldn't do enough for me and m daughter on the trip. Nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely recommend for anyone thinking of a week's livaboard to give discovery a go. We will definitely be back.

We were unlucky and didn't see any hammer heads or mantas or dolphines, but we encountered one oceanic whitetip shark passing by.

An unforgettable week

We didn't have any luck with hammerheads, but the dolphins very much made up for them. The crew was patient, amazing, and absolutely professional. Thank you so much for a memorable week! <3 to Kareem, Ali, Dabs, and the entire discovery crew!

Great value for money

dolphins, always dolphins. Guides will listen when you explain what you want to to, so providing it falls within your skill set and experience, safety and time - they will usually try to accommodate. My wife and I pretty much did our own thing all week at each site.

Recommended for
Cheap, dive guides have your safety at heart and follow the weather not the itinerary to give the best trip
