Nice trip, but dive sites are too crowded.

The highlight of the trip was seeing hammerheads at Daedalus, in spite of there being 12 liveaboards (250+ divers) with 2 zodiacs each constantly rushing over the dive site. The corals were very healthy at the Brothers, Daedalus and Elphinstone. The night dives were a lot of fun although we were only able to do 2 as no night dives are allowed at Brothers, Daedalus and Elphinstone.

Great experience for the price - Worth it!

It was a really full on week, as all liveaboards are, but we were well catered for and the dives were really varied. It was my first experience diving wrecks that big and I was surprised at the lack of regulations allowing us to penetrate them; the WWII wreck (SS Thistlegorm) was INCREDIBLE. It was a really nice group, all competent divers, and a nice balance of diving and socialising. It was nice to be offered unguided dives at several sites allowing for us the freedom to explore at our own pace - as an example, this resulted in an amazing night dive where we were able to spend the entire time following a huge octopus.

Really nice group onboard, although this is subjective. The dive sites and marine life were really varied. Great weather and relaxing week.

Great trip!

It was my first live aboard so, hard for me to compare, but even the veterans in the group said it was a great week. The boat is not new but it is well mantained and you don't feel it's worn out in any sense. The crew are nice, very proactive and always at your service. The food is pretty good, tasty, limited in options, but this is normal in a small environment. Overall a good experience. I would recommend.

The boat is nice, it's in good condition and crew strives to provide a good service.

Une belle croisière

Le récif des Brothers est toujours aussi beau. Le gros (hammerhead et manta sur Deadalus et Elphinstone c’est très aléatoire… y avait beaucoup de bateaux ! Sans doute + 200 plongeurs)
