Great food! Great Staff! Not so good DiveMaster

I enjoyed Lucky Marine Liveaboard, the food was fantastic and the staff was very friendly. The bad part of the trip was the Dive leader I was paired up with. Without naming any names, I was disappointed in the lack of professionalism of my Dive Leader. I have never seen anyone kick and destroy coral like he did. And he is an instructor!! His general lack of awareness of his surroundings was extremely unprofessional and degenerative to the environment. After bringing it up to him his response was “nobody’s perfect” The same dive leader also chose to use emergency cutting device from my BCD without my permission and failed to attach it correctly causing me to have to dive without it. Have you ever seen a dive master use your equipment ?? Then not put it back how they found it? Staff and Food 5 stars My dive leader 2 stars

Every meal was different/unique! I hear other liveaboards usually serve a lot of soups/curry's since they're easy to prep but I got seconds every meal due to how amazing the chefs were. I loved how much we dove! This is the perfect liveaboard for those who want to DIVE! If you want a relaxing liveaboard, pick something else! Loved it! Can't wait to dive again with this team!

Awesome experience!

Really great experience with Lucky Marine. The Similans were beautiful. Even with some cold currents and middling visibility this time of year, the dive guides brought us to beautiful spots full of marine life. We saw so much cool stuff. I felt secure and comfortable the whole time. The whole crew was on top of their game in maintaining equipment and making us comfortable. Cabins were surprisingly comfortable. The FOOD was unbelievable. They said they dedicate more attention to food than others might, and it shows. Everything was delicious and plentiful. I felt bad that I was constantly eating the whole time because everything was so delicious! This was my first experience on a liveaboard, and Lucky Marine set the bar high. I would love to come back!

Fun little one night liveaboard

Good time on the super quick one night liveaboard from Chalong pier. The boat was still relatively new, and very big. Easy trip from Chalong pier, perfect for anyone short on time and want to maximize their dives. Crew was great, boat was big enough for everyone to spread out. The top deck was huge! Great place to relax at night and sun in the day. Best part was the divemaster, Vincent. Seasoned diver and knew the area well so was able to show us some great stuff below. Thanks Lucky for the fun trip!

Beautiful diving

The diving was beautiful, the dive staff was very helpful. As far as our dive guide he was very knowledgeable of the area we were diving, his briefings were very in depth. Underwater we felt that he had lost his passion for guiding and it is just now a job. The dives felt rushed and were more of a point A to point B event. Instead of exploring what was along the path. He definitely was there to do a job and was not extremely open to what the group wanted to do. He didn’t check air volume very often and was comfortable with my wife and I getting back to the boat with 200 to 250 psi left in our tanks. Overall a good charter.

Great value for money, don’t miss it out!

We met whale sharks! Experienced both cruisy and challenging spots with current, and enjoyed all the swim-throughs, reefs, and boulders full of living nature.

Fantastic experience

The dving was wonderful, especially at Richelieu Rock. The crew was excellent, and the food plentiful and delicious. The boat had lots of areas to sit and relax between dives and was well equipped. The only negative is that some of the dive gear really should be replaced or serviced. Two people had a hard time finding fins that were big enough, and many of the wetsuits had holes or broken zippers. My BCD/regulator combo also leaked more than it should on the air hose connector. Overall, a wonderful worthwhile experience.
