    Fantastic Seychelles Explorer Cruise 2017, Seychelles in October

    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)

    Good boat and diving - excellent food Seychelles Explorer Cruise 2017, Seychelles in December

    The food was excellent. The diving was pretty good - no coral but good marine life. The staff were fun friendly and helpful. Overall would recommend the boat even though you can find better diving at other places.

    Perfect place for first time safari divers Seychelles Explorer Cruise 2017, Seychelles in November

    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.
