Good live aboard crew

Richelieu rock. Amazing site. Visibility was zero at times. Way to many fish. A pretty good problem to have. Three dives at Richelieu and each one great . Wreck of boonsung, I had 5 encounters with cuttlefish

Rooms on boat redone. Much more comfortable. Crew know the divesites very well. Food presentation much more formal than the last trip on diverace. I have done at least 6 trips on diverace.

Solid experience overall, special mention to the staff and Richelieu Rock!

Richelieu rock was absolutely amazing, the perfect combination of marine life and bright corals with enough dives to cover it all. Staff is very convivial and always close by to help zip up your wetsuit or accommodate your dietary restrictions.

Professional dive experience with amazing dive spots

The huge mantas we spotted at Koh Bon. Definitly one of the best experiences in my life so far.

The service on board, staff is super helpful. I loved the hot warm towel we received after each dive. The staff helped us to get out of our wetsuits, the dive instructors took care of your needs, small dive groups. Nothing to complain.
