Amazing experience

I had a great time on the Giamani. There aren't a lot of cabins so diving is never crowded. Food was great as well. They keep the diving groups small and can really cater to whatever you want to do.

Fantastic trip

Whale shark at Richelieu rock. Good company and the boat is on the smaller size so the dives aren’t too crowded.

very nice cruise with good diving.

see above, plus the huge black stingray, the turtle close encounter. we missed some tomato juice, the shower floor board was decrepit, the dive-master was professional but a bit school style.

Fantastic crew and diving

Dima and his boat crew were fantastic, they are friendly, happy people, passionate about diving and conservation of the natural beauty. We loved the fact the boat only accommodates limited numbers of divers; on our week-long trip we had 6 divers, all of whom were highly experienced. The crew have worked long term on the boat, with the captain very professional and engaged on Giamani since it was built. Dima had excellent underwater navigation and spotting skills, meaning we saw marine life normally difficult to spot. The boat cabins are a little tired, but we didn’t care as we spent so little time in them. Overall an excellent trip.
