Great trip with amazing group of people

Spending time with like-minded people as a solo traveller and doing great dives. Did hope to do more wrecks but all in all had some top dives. Thislegorm wreck was amazing (despite a slight traffic jam at the start) and did my 100th dive at Shark and Yolanda reef.

High quality diving experience

This was one of the best liveaboard experiences I have had. The boat is kept immaculately clean and the staff are all very friendly and attentive. The food is superb, with options offered to suit dietary requirements. There is also the option of fresh eggs made to order at breakfast which is always a lovely touch. We did not rent equipment but from what I could tell, everything looked well maintained and of good quality. We dived in groups of six. Safety standards are high and the dive guides were fantastic. A wonderful dive experience – we would happily return for another trip with Discovery Divers.
