First liveaboard trip but won't be our last!

Sooo many fish! Being used to Cozumel diving the visibility wasnt as great but the number of fish and species seen simply cannot compare. Huge schools of barracuda and trevally.

Great Experience!!

I had a great time on the MV Bavaria. World class diving with great dive masters. The food was amazing and the entire crew worked hard to ensure you were enjoying the trip. The dive deck crew was great, helping any time you needed a hand with gear, etc. The rooms were clean and air conditioned. I loved relaxing on the sun deck with a book during surface time and then chilling in the dining area with a beer after the evening dive. This trip was well organized, I’d definitely do it again!!

Unsere beste Tauchsafari

Wir fühlten uns während der ganzen Reise gut aufgehoben. Alle unsere Wünsche wurden mehr als erfüllt. Taucherisch war der Richerlieu Rock das absolute Highlight: ich habe noch nie so viele Fischschwärme an einem Ort gesehen! Danke für alles!

Sehr freundliche, hilfsbereite und kompetente Crew mit familiärer Atmosphäre. Wunderschöne Tauchplätze. Wir hatten Probleme mit der Organisation des Transfers zu unserem nächsten Hotel (war so abgelegen, dass wir nicht am Ankunftstag zum Hotel gelangen konnten). Marcus hat uns unkompliziert und schnell ein Hotel gebucht und den Transfer auf den nächsten Tag organisiert, dass alles reibungslos abgelaufen ist. Ich möchte der ganzen Crew und insbesondere dem lieben Chef herzlich für die wunderbare Betreuung auf der ganzen Reise danken.

Great diving trip

We were a group of 4 - one open water diver doing the advanced course, two advanced divers doing their nitrox course, and a dive master (myself) just diving. We all had a great trip.

I was the odd man out of my German speaking group and that only made me more popular with my fellow divers. I had a blast following my camera buddies underwater and having them point me towards every lady nudibranch in Thailand. The crew on Bavaria was incredible, it was essentially a resort at sea. I can’t wait until my next dive trip with them.
