Amazing crew amazing dives

Crews are amazing! They are there to help whenever you need them, extraordinarily friendly. Dive guides are very experienced and good at handling newbie divers. The dives are so amazing that we don’t want to miss even one minute. Our friends had to leave because of medical issue only 2 days after which was sad but we were very grateful for their way of handling and the care they shown. They can’t wait to get back! Big thank you to all the backstage crews for making up this perfect Liveaboard trip for us!

The crew were amazing !

The crew of Scuba Ying were amazing! Yes, it’s a nice and expensive boat but the care, diligence and attention to detail exceeded all expectations. And it was even the small things like remembering every guests’ drink preference, folding napkins in the shape of manta (was a 1st one for me :)) or preparing elaborate bbq on the beach that was fit for the queen. I really liked the experience and the atmosphere they created !

We loved the whole trip beginning to end. I spent a lot of time researching the vessel. Can understand why there are repeat customers and am going to be one of them! Diving was great.

Inspirational, educational and so comfortable that we barely had to lift a finger for a week.

Scuba package: Best dive in all 15 years with mantas chain feeding, somersault feeding and cyclone feeding in front of us for 20+ mins. Add a whaleshark on a dive, all the macro life, and fantastic crew and dive guides who bring all the good vibes - this week was truly special. Spa package: I chose not to dive but had a great time snorkelling and saw all the big stuff! I found it a truly relaxing experience whilst also pushing my boundaries on holiday. Thanks so much to the whole team!

A great combination with leisure and diving

The highlight is no doubt the food because it is with a great variety and it's quite tasteful. All the crew members are amazingly friendly just like your friend.
