Exceptional Hospitality, Experience, and Value

I have been on many Liveaboards (>20). This is by far at the top of the tree of any of those! You will eat delicious food and experience some of the best diving the Philippines has to offer. You will feel the hospitality from the moment you are greeted, with a sense of community on board and camaraderie. Smiles and friendship flow readily and easily from everyone involved. Apo Reef was on fire! Play the "Marine Life Bingo" and tick off the 25 "big list" items shown in photographs in rows on the boat's wall - we found 21! First to get 5 in a row gets free drinks for the night! Learn a little bit more via excellent presentations about fish and creatures that you may not possibly have known! Brief and informative, I loved these pre dive presentations (thanks Sean!). On board there's as much fun as you can imagine. Totally down to earth Owner (Travis) and Crew. Big shout out to our knowledgeable guides "J.J." and the impressive and humble Instructor, Sean. Their knowledge, dive briefings, and outstanding care and safety underwater, (not to mention brilliant spotting for wildlife!) will have you captivated and anticipating every dive. Relax topside after an amazing day's diving on the expansive top deck with uninterrupted views of Palawan. Breathtakingly beautiful, watch the sun go down over the verdant and rugged hills with a nice cold drink whilst feasting on (yet another) hearty and delicious Dinner. If you are lucky, you may even get a song or two from one of the sweetest voices a very talented crew person - but that's up to her! That Lady can really sing! Big schools of Barracuda. Sharks. Turtles. Giant Trevally. Mantas. Sea Snakes. Octopus. Tuna. Jacks. Big Stuff. Small Stuff. Irresistible critters and Night dives. Amazing kaleidoscope of corals bursting with health and vitality. Day dives, morning dives, and Night dives! And WWII Wrecks!!! Where else can you experience all this but in the amazing Philippines? And this Liveaboard will take you there. Thanks for a great trip, I will be back for sure. Pete, DM.
