My wife and I had a wonderful experience doing our first Liveaboard with a great crew/ company!

Highly recommend doing a liveaboard with Sea Dragon! Very professional instructors/ guides, gave thorough briefings. Clean boat, good food. Fun experience, worth it! Only recommendation is to update the website requirements divers need prior to booking, such as needing to have 30m deep dive certification (you can receive it through them on the trip but budget for an additional cost).

Great time, great value

We had a great time on board. The food was good, our dive instructor and crew were great, and the diving (especially Richelieu Rock) was amazing. The quarters were a bit cramped, but it encouraged everyone to go to the common area and interact, have fun with each other, and relax. In the future, improving the bedding could be one easy improvement that we thought would go a long way. The boat was very well-organized and had plenty planned to keep you busy most of the time - including beach trips, on-board BBQs, and board games. It's worth noting that although this listing says free internet, that's only if you have a cell phone with service -- there is no WiFi on-board. This isn't a "luxury" boat for sure, but if you want good diving, good staff, and a ton of fun, it's an amazing value -- my wife and I both considered our 3-day trip on the Andaman to be one of the best experiences of our 2-week Thailand vacation.

Good food, Good dive, Great value for money

Lots of food - local and western. Very generous portions and have left over for each meal. Excellent dive briefing - showing pictures of marine life excepted. Detail written log provided after each dive. Created platform to share pictures. Saw whaleshark at Richelieu Rock. Many marine life such as octopus, shrimps, crabs, lobsters, sponge snail, nudibranch, barracuda, jack fish, bat fish, etc. Marvelous discount for repeating customers.

Excellent experience with many lovely memories made!

Richelieu Rock and Batfish Rock dives were marvelous, and the dives were well-paced. Food was super delicious (fruits were served regularly and authentic Thai food) and the crew's teamwork was impeccable! Kiddos to everyone for making our first liveaboard fuss-free and memorable. Go with the Sea Dragon team if you want a great bang for your buck!
