All round great experience.

Diving with thresher sharks in Malapascua was incredible. We saw about 10 sharks with amazing visiblility, within 2m from us.

The quality of service and equipment was outstanding. The dive guides and staff are attentive and friendly. The quality of diving was mixed, mainly due to weather, but this cannot be helped. It was a great experience.

Great liveaboard experience

The DMs pointed out things to me that I had never seen before. Their knowledge of the area is extensive and I saw everything I hoped to see —- and more! Good camaraderie on the boat as well !

super cool diving and a nice team

it was a very good experience: diving is easy and there's so much to see underwater! it's unbelievable how clean and lively the reef is! also the weather was super nice for our trip. but what also made this trip a blast are the crew and other guests onboard. it was a nice family-like atmosphere all the time. I enjoyed a lot. Also, what comes to diving, safety is on point and divemaster (and other divers too) are very attentive, which makes you forget any troubles and enjoy the beauty of Tubbataha reef. Big thanks to everyone, hope yo see you again somewhere underwater or on land ;)

beautiful coral garden

1. the reef park enviorment is protected very well, you could see many fish groups, such as sweetlips, jackfish, barracude etc. 2. the coral garden is beautiful, along the wall, there are differnet sea fans. 3. it is easy to meet with reef sharks. 4. the wave is somewhat big on the boat.

Great dives and great meetings

The dive sites are really great and with such good guides it's easy to see how beautiful it were. The boat is not luxuary but the essential is here and the crew and guides are great and always doing their best for us. A very good trip.

Excellent and professional crew

Nice boat with indoor lounge room and sun deck, the front outdoor lounge could not always be used because of wind and rain. Cabins: big enough but no opportunity to dry swimsuits or towels: the air in the cabin is damp, the towel never got dry and smelled musty after a couple of days. Nice hot shower! Hygiene of the bathroom is questionable: hair from predecessors on the drain and thick fungus under the sliding door spot, the area around the sink full of toothpaste and soap splashes from previous guests. Crew: boat crew and dive guide: extremely friendly, always helpful, patient and very professional. This was really impressive. Dives: Some tresher sharks, white tip sharks but overall a scarce fish presence and variety, I found it a bit disappointing. Due to bad weather we went twice to the same site to see tresher sharks. What was the point as there were some 30 other dive boats (day cruises) on the same spot. We didn’t understand why we twice didn’t manage to arrive before them despite of us being the only liveaboard. Dive organisation: great, the crew was very professional and helpful. We had an excellent dive guide. Great plus: every diver got a dry towel after each dive which was great since the water was cold and the air temperature quite fresh. Dive deck small but totally sufficient thanks to the good organisation. Food: not great: some of the veggies were from cans and there was a lot of deep-fried food as well as thick sauces, the taste of the dishes was often not good. Not enough local food overall. Twice some nice grilled fish for dinner (but quickly eaten up). The morning and afternoon snacks were almost always eaten up by the first dive group: no drink or food left if you took the time to shower and get some dry clothes, so several divers from the second group were often left out in the cold. This applied also for lunch or dinner as well as for the fruit after main meals. The overall food quantity is of course always enough, difficult to tell if it was due to a lack of quantity or just sheer lack of consideration of other people on the boat. It would help to wait until both diving groups are ready before serving meals. There was no allocated some spot on the boat so you have to endure smoke in all outdoor areas.

Whale Sharks and Thresher Sharks

There is much to like about Seadoors. The boat is in good condition and comfortable although the loungeroom is not really available for relaxing as some of the crew sleep there. So don't expect to watch videos after dinner or between dives. The cabins are, of course, small but not as small as I've seen. I travelled alone and was bunked up with another woman - unfortunately the cabins are really not designed for two single people - to access the top bunk and storage you have to stand on the bed below. But the port holes next to the top bunk were large and opened. Fantastic! The dive deck is small but good - the chase boats are great including custom designed and built ladders which make it really easy to get back into the boat - really appreciate that. And the crew were very helpful. Unfortunately we didn't get introduced to most of the crew which I would have liked. I wasn't all that impressed with the diving - some of it was great - and I loved the snorkel with the whale sharks. The coral was good but I'm not really into micro-stuff and there just weren't that many fish. Don't get me wrong - I'd say half the dives were great - but that means half were a bit ordinary - especially if like me you don't like night muck dives. Thresher shark experience was pretty under-whelming - three dives and saw maybe three sharks and only one close enough to count. My biggest problem with the Seadoors experience is that the owner/operator runs it all a little unstructured - so I never had any advance notice of when dives were likely to be. I really like a schedule so that I can work out when I have time for a nap and when I don't. I know things can change depending on weather and tides an current but I'd really like best guess info in advance. The owner/operator is French and a great diver. He targets the European market - pricing all in Euros which was confusing for me as an Aussie - by the time I'd been told everything in Euros (some of which additional expenses I didn't expect) and then told what the exchange into Pesos was (and nothing was ever written written down for me - just verbal) and I was trying to manage my money - I felt all confused and a bit resentful. So, overall the trip wa still an 8/10 - of course - I got to go diving somewhere fantastic for 5 days - but just a few things to be aware of.
