Great trip with only one negative

I really liked the trip itinerary and thought the boat was really nice and the crew did a fantastic job. The tour director did not know how to handle guests although he was obviously experienced but it was a good trip overall.

BDE Itinerary

We actually booked on the Okeanos Xplorer but were offered to switch over to the Vita Xplorer which we accepted. It's clear that the Xplorer guys are experienced operators and safety is emphasized. The Vita Xplorer is in good condition and comfortable, but the main deck cabins do seem to smell like fuel from the engine - we were travelling in a group of five and had 2x cabins on the main deck and one on the lower deck. Both main deck cabins had this problem, but the lower deck cabin was fine. Of the 20 guests on board, 15 were French speaking but everyone got along well. The cook does a good job of preparing fresh food from scratch with 6-7 dishes served at every meal (incl. yummy crepes for brekkie). We did the BDE itinerary which was a great experience and we greatly improved our diving skills. Would book again.

Diving was great and super well organized of the crew! We saw a tiger shark which was not expected, amazing! Also the team of liveaboard was super helpful and communication was always easy going. I can only recommend this trip and for sure I would do it again!
