Overall great experience with a very bad company and management. Even switched us boats with any previous notice.

Varied and exciting diving

Professional run dive organisation , staff helpful with gear set up etc, knowledgeable guide and in depth briefing provided on all dive sites. Boat crew could not have been more accommodating, food varied and plentiful... lots of tuna! Cabins tidied and cleaned twice daily with clean towels, Drinks very expensive but to be expected. On a down side , boat needs maintenance, no water initially, when fixed we mostly had luke warm showers at best mostly cold. Air con in downstairs cabins broke and was unable to be repaired leaving rooms stifling hot for sleeping in. Also very bad smell in downstairs corridor.

Great experience but unfortunately not so great boat

The dhoni broke twice during the week. At one point it was during storm with waves about 1.5-2 meters and some of us were on the water waiting for pick up for 40 mins. The air con at the main boat cabin slowly stopped being cold throughout the week, it started very cold. You have to pay 20 usd for the internet but most of the time the signal is really bad and only works when you’re on the lounge in the main deck.
