Best vacation ever!

This was an amazing trip! Probably as close to a perfect trip as you can get. It was quite expensive, but it was easily worth every single penny. The crew was absolutely fantastic and the accommodations on board were wonderful. The diving was beautiful and the dive instructor was very personable and knowledgeable. The food was amazing! It was mostly seafood, which I usually don't care for, but the chef made it so delicious that I enjoyed every bit of it! There really wasn't anything I would have changed about the trip except to make it longer!

Some of the dives were spectacular The crew were extremely helpful The cabin was spacious The food was excellent and very aesthetically presented (if you're allowed to recommend hotel then the Eden Blue is very convenient for those who spend 1-2 nights prior to embarkation since it is situated 7min from the dock where Galatea is anchored & electrical buggy can be arranged to carry the diving equipment)

Perfect place for first time safari divers

Trip is expectionaly beautiful for nature above water. Though it is very dull underwater compared for other worldwide diving places. It is very safe for begginer divers, because of shalow water (deepest place we’ve been was maybe 20m). Not a lot of rare fish, so for first timers it is good not to be distracted too much for anything awsome. Overall nice relaxing dives, boat and crew are fabulous.
