Boat in bad conditions

There are cockroaches on the boat. The bunk beds in the cabins are very outdated and extremely uncomfortable. Boat is really old and it shows. The dives were lackluster other than the tiger shark dives. I went in November and it was not the right time to go. The crew and the dives guides were great, but can’t make up for an otherwise bad experience.

Very clean and comfortable, great diving and guides. No credit card services on board, bring cash :-(

Nurse shark twilight dive, some of the pinnacles are marvelous. No luck with hammerheads and whale sharks, yet.

Recommended for
The cabins are cozy, if small. The crew is very friendly and does everything to make it a memorable trip.

Amazing!!! My only complaint on the trip is that I had to disembark the boat..😄

Everything about this trip was on point. From the BBQ on the beach and the live music, to the amazing crew and chef on the boat, to the great diving and dive guides. Dove with a Whaleshark and it was amazing. Top notch organization!!!🐙🦈🐟🐋
