Great Trip if you have limited time on Dive holiday

They have great prices on their trips and their staff is wonderful. I got the opportunity to travel with Genesis and it was the trip of a lifetime. The crew was so knowledgeable and made the trip that much more awesome. I highly recommend the Genesis for a budget-friendly trip.

Fantastic, The guides and crew were amazing along with the food and facilities making for a great few days diving

Of course the diving but this was made even better by the detailed dive briefings before each dive and then discussions following each dive about our experience and what we had seen. We didn't just dive but learnt a lot about the sea life and also learnt about my weights and positioning of them to help my dive experience.

Sehr nette Tauchfahrt in familiärer Atmosphäre. Das Boot und die Tauchplattform sind etwas eng, was durch gute Organisation (kleine Gruppen, die zeitversetzt abtauchen) aber gut kompensiert wird. Die komplette Abwicklung samt Hoteltransfer hat perferkt geklappt! Kompliment an die gesamt Crew, die immer hilfsbereit ist und im speziellen an die Köchin, die hervorrande Mahlzeiten in ihrer Mini-Küche zaubert! Bei den Tauchgängen war für jeden etwas dabei, teilweise hatten wir aber überraschend schlechte Sicht.... Alles in Allem ein sehr gelungener Trip! DANKE

Très belle croisière plongée, organisation au top.

Tout !! Tout est très bien organisé. On se sent en sécurité du début à la fin. Qualité des plongées même si beaucoup trop de plongeurs à richelieu !! Bouteilles gonflées à 240bars ce qui permet de faire de longues plongées. Le personnel au petit soin a bord. Tres bonne nourriture.

Petit comité, seulement 12 plongeurs. La nourriture. La sécurité à bord et en plongée

Assez bon rapport qualité prix

Points faibles : minuscules cabines (bien plus petites que sur les photos), plonger toujours avec le même instructeur, repas réchauffés, peu de place dans l’espace commun. Grosse déception ne dépendant pas du bateau : volume des plongeurs à Richelieu Rock qui font fuire les gros poissons...
