A fabulous week's diving.

See above. Also, Caroline, the chief of the dive crew was brilliant. Very experienced, safe, observant and knowledgeable. The captain was a damn good one too. And It makes fantastic bread :-)

Great week!

The boat was well maintained but the cabins left a bit to be desired. The beds were like rocks and we got towels for blankets. The dive crew were great and the Thai crew were fun but you could tell there was some conflict between them in regards to diver safety which should be addressed immediately. The trip director Gerben addressed any issues that came up and was great to deal with. The food was abundant and amazing!! The diving was good although not as good as I was expecting. The visibility and landscape were incredible but there was a pretty evident lack of marine life that I assume is because of overfishing which was a bit sad. Coral bleaching has also done a number on the reefs. We did see a whale shark which was pretty special!
