Great dives and crew! Boat needs work.

My husband and I loved the gorgeous dives, and the adventuresome wreck dives. Apo Reef is just wonderful. I got my Advanced Open Water with Divemaster Mark Frazer. He was fantastic. He really took time to help me understand anything I struggled with. Very calm and masterful. I knew he could help me if I needed anything on a dive. The crew was just the best. Mimi took care of everything. Chef made delicious food, on what I suspect was a tight budget. The vegetarian with us had her own plates of lovely veg. The boat needs a lot of upgrades. Just know you are on a budget boat. The crew does their best to keep everyone comfortable. We were grateful for the air con in the little cabin. There's no place to put your stuff. We created a system for ourselves. The bathroom is always wet. there was a leak in the bidet hose that kept the floor wet. The matts on the floors seem old. The top deck, the only place to comfortably hang out, only had uncomfortable plastic chairs or a few old bean bags. Not enough for everyone. There was little shade we struggled to stay in. The dining area was airless and hot. There's diesel fumes everywhere which was really sad to me. There wasn't a place to hang up your swimsuits, rashguards etc. We tied our stuff to railings. There are a few clips but not enough for everyone. But the crew was so good, and strived to make us comfortable. We also had a group of awesome divers who were fun to be with so the trip was overall a success. It's a budget boat, and that is a helpful choice when you need it.

Amazing experience!

The crew makes this experience incredible. They are all so nice and go out of their way to make sure you are happy. Food was incredible, I think I am spoiled for the rest of my life now. Diving on this trip was epic! I was in a shared room which was ok - if you only care about the room this boat is not for you. But it’s a diving liveaboard so I spent very little time in the room - just to sleep. Thank you so much!

Great trip

Very good energy & vibes! Very informative on the wildlife, and the wrecks so we knew the history & characteristics of what we were seeing while diving. Friendly & welcoming staff, felt at home. Music & dinner in the evening on the top deck was beautiful. Took an advanced course on board & the instructor did a wonderful job, very attentive & thorough.
