Great experience, very friendly dive guides and crew members, highly recommended!

Highlight of the trip was definitely the dive guides, biggest shoutout to Dirk and Oli, thank you so much for a very relaxed and safe diving-island experience. This was my very first liveaboard experience and thank you Sea Turtle Divers and Amapon to make this even more memorable. We spent the Chinese New Year's Eve dinner on the boat and it was great. The cabin has just enough space to sleep conformably and the traditional Thai decor makes it stand out among other commercial dive boats, Amapon is cozy and has its own character. Dirk is a very experienced diving professional, he took the time to teach me how to control my breath underwater, I was able to spend 20 more minutes (!) underwater with the techniques he shared. If you are looking for a liveabord experience, I would recommended Amapon.
