Amazing trip and great diving

We have been on many live-aboards over the past 35 years of diving. The boat was a new re-fit and our cabin was really nice. The boat and had a few teething problems on its maiden voayage but these where all managed really well. The reef is in pristine condition and the marine reserve is being very well managed. We saw lots of big stuff the wall diving is great and not too much current. The dive team the boat crew and the food were all amazing. We would highly recommend this trip and will be booking it again. Ian & Nikki

great diving in a convenient dive boat with an excellent crew

Various whale shark encounters. One critisizm all the same: Every drink is charged to the passengers. I find this quibbling. Soft drinks and beer are normally included in the price of other liveaboards.
