Everything was awesome. The boat is great and very comfortable, with spacious rooms, very clean, and amazing food. The crew was super nice, always there to help with a smile. The dive sites are out of this world, with very detailed briefing, and full of wildlife. The dive master Onal is a legend. All of them are. Everything was great and exceeded my expectations.

The best liveaboard experience I have had

Cabin size and always kept clean. Friendly helpful crew. The boat setup is great loved the showers at the back, the nice warm ginger tea at the end of each dive. Dive briefing very helpful. The crew really engage with the guests checking we are ok getting our import all the time. Small number in each dive group ( only 4 per dive guide is great ) Food was great diving was great the whole experience was one to remember and Sarah and I are coming back.
