Great boat, wonderful crew, world-class diving

Spectacular reefs with particularly impressive soft corals in the many caves and overhangs. Dramatic underwater topography at some sites made appreciable by great visibility (up to 45 m). Great fast drift diving and channel dives hanging out to watch the sharks. Consistently seeing “big stuff” - blacktip, whitetip and grey reef sharks, eagle and marbled stingray, mantas, whale sharks. The crew clearly knew the sites and ideal conditions and used this to their advantage. It was clear that COVID has thrown some curveballs, but they more than made up for this - we ended up doing far more than the advertised number of dives and had an absolutely excellent experience. Highly recommended. (PS - although Seafari is traditionally a “French” boat, the dive guides spoke good English, and we enjoyed a multicultural polyglottal experience.

Big Fish

The boat is amazing, plenty of space and the rooms are above average. The diving locations are amazing from the air, the coral can be so so but the fish life is amazing. So many Manta's it was incredible.

Crociera tra discreto e buono

Nuotare con 7 whale sharks Immersione notturna con le mante e squali nutrice. Cibo molto buono e salutare. Peccato veramente il comfort in cabina sia veramente basso. Abbiamo dormito poco e male.

Du 1er au 8 décembre 2019 j’ai fait ma première croisière de plongée sous-marine à bord du Seafari Explorer et j’ai adoré chaque instant à bord et sous l’eau.

Les meilleurs moments du voyage ont été les deux night dives, une avec les raies mantas, l’autre avec les requins nourrice, les rencontres avec les grey sharks, white tip sharks, black tip sharks... et l’émotion plus grande à été de me retrouver face à face avec mon premier requin baleine. Des souvenirs qui resteront gravés à jamais dans ma mémoire. J’ai fait des très belles rencontres sur le bateau et je peux dire que des belles amitiés sont nées. J’ai eu la chance d’avoir une chambre à moi seule. Très confortable. Notre guide, Tom, a été exceptionnel. Très préparé et très attentif à sa palanquée. Mélanie et lui, se sont très bien pris soins de nous pendant toute la croisière. Je ne pouvais espérer mieux pour ma première aventure en liveaboard.

Les trois points forts de cette croisière plongée sont les sites de plongée riches en faune sous-marine, l’ambiance sur le bateau très agréable, l’équipage très attentionné et disponible.
