The thai crew are so care and kindness, they will take care us all the time (before and after in every dive). The dive guide give us a detail briefing, guidance and debrief. Also have a good drink time at night. Just feel the price is quite expensive compared to other liveaboard trip.

Amazing overall Experience I can highly recommend

The family and I decided to go on this 4 day / 3 nights liveaboard over the Songkran Festival and my birthday :-). Communicating with the liveaboard.com Team to get the booking done was fantastic and the response was fast and efficient. Arriving at the ship and getting to know the rest of the passengers and Team was easy and made us settle in quickly. The Food and service throughout the trip was outstanding and they even catered for our dietary requirements. The Dive Team Crew and Support Crew was incredible and one of the best I have been diving with (about 800 dives). The guiding, pick-up, equipment care, preparation was always flawless and very professional. The dives sites were all brilliant but diving on Richelieu Rock was for me one of the Top 10 dive sites in my diving world for now. Even if I would be thinking long and hard, I cannot think of anything negative during our trip and can only recommend to choose the Halleluja ... I will for sure again in the future

Great overall scuba experience

Hallelujah is is an excellent mid-range boat. She is comfortable, had a convenient dive deck, has free Nitrox, and an excellent crew. Cabins on the Hallelujah were on the small side, but thats to be expected on a dive boat and it was not an issue as there were several areas where we could relax and socialize both in ac and not in ac during transit times and surface intervals. Hallelujah excels because of her crew. The company has a 4:1 ratio of divers to guides and all groups are guided. These small dive groups allow the company to divide divers into similar dive skill levels and also keep us spread out enough so that it's not a constant sea of divers. With the popularity of the simians, it is not uncommon for there to be 6-8 dive boats of 20 divers each on a dive site. The Hallelujah was great at not diving where the other boats are and constantly looked for dive sites that weren't as crowded. If you want a good vacation that focuses on diving and giving you a customized experience, choose Hallelujah. If you want a boat with a bunch of fussy divers where you are dropped off the dive deck like lemmings in diver soup, choose another boat.

The best liveaboard to dive in the Similans

This is my second time to dive with Hallelujah, and I found it's even better than my last trip!! This is the best liveaboard experience you can have in Thailand. The ship is very spacious, and the diving schedule is designed very nice with a mix of different type of things you could enjoy (landscape, macro, big stuff, etc.) And the crew are super professional and passionate about diving. One highlight is the food - the best food i've had for any liveaboard trip ever. A variety of Thai, Japanese & western food.

Unforgettable Experience with Friendly Guides/Staffs

We decided to use Hallelujah based on Liveaboard.com rating, which turned out to be great choice. Dive sites are meticulously selected for every divers with different levels. We started easy sites and built up our skills and finally reached out Koh Bon, Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock, where you need to fight with strong current. We enjoyed very much in spite of strong current. Staffs are always smiling and ready to help you at any moment. They're very experienced and will there for you. Food was great (though it's bit salty for me) Fresh water, coffee, tea are provided free all day long. Cheers!

Amazing dive sites & a language barrier

We had amazing visibility when we went to Richelieu Rock - 40 meters at least. That site is one of the best in the world. As usual, the crew and the passengers were relaxed, the guides were patient and experienced (and worked through many problems with customers making their experience much more pleasant). The only problem was half the boat was Japanese-speaking tourists (the boat is half-owned by a Japanese man). As an English-speaker, I'm a bit spoiled to have it be the common tongue around the world, but I was still a bit disappointed that half the boat passengers didn't really talk to the other half. On these trips, you spend a lot of time with the other passengers, so it's nice to have people to talk to!
