As Pharrell says “Because I’m happy”

Blue Corner, second time diving it during the trip, because of great visibility and tons of marine life. Claude dove, but Anne could not because of ear trouble after a cold. She had one aborted dive, and two other dives. But, being surrounded by all the beauty and warmth and goodness of the crew and guests made it a special week.

Solid dive trip

Great food, lots of dives per day, rarely saw other boats/groups of divers. Loads of fish, turtles, reef sharks, clown fish, nice corals, good crew / level of service.

Great Value, Excellent Food and Service

The food was excellent, I had a nice comfortable cabin. They had hot face towel for you as soon as you get in the skiff after a dive - such a nice touch! I've done 10 liveaboards and this was my first time having that. Super nice and helpful crew. Complimentary beer and wine a plus. My only complaint is that we repeated same dive sites several times.

Set the bar high for future trips.

3 Manta dives, specifically the last one. The guide pointing out specific things to those he knew would appreciate it(example-Disco clams). The overall atmosphere the whole trip and on all the dives. Also the fellow dive made this trip very memorable!

Spent dreamy days diving!

I was truly happy to dive into the clear and healthy sea ecosystem with friendly staff and great buddies. I think this trip will stay with me for a long time. The view of the sea was so good, and I watched and took pictures of everything from sharks to macros. I will definitely go diving again!
