First liveaboard was incredible experience and great value for money

The food was fantastic, the chefs are very talented and catered for my dietaries very well (vegetarian). The boat boys were extremely helpful and a lovely addition to the dive deck. All the dive staff were very knowledgable and seasoned professionals. Definitely won't be the last liveaboard I do, this was a great experience. Keep in mind Similans area gets advertised as high likelihood of seeing Manta Rays and Whalesharks, however, this is not the case and its generally unlikely you see either. The diving is phenomenal though, especially Richelieu Rock which is world class. Just want to manage expectations as many on the boat including me were looking forward to seeing the big stuff.

Wow! Just incredible

Both the boat staff and dive staff were very nice and accommodating. The chefs kindly cooked me vegan meals and the dive staff were patient and understanding. I did my AOWD and Enriched air (nitrox) and come out of this great experience with another 2 qualifications. Keen to come back next year!

The crew knew when the best time to dive at particular locations. All staff members were accommodating to individual needs. Marine life and it’s diversity was incredible. So many fish and corals. Always fed quality food after a dive, so never went hungry. Would 100% recommend.

Great diving, great boat, great crew!

Great dive sites, especially Koh Bon and Richelieu rock. Comfortable spaces to hang out and socialise between dives. The option to sleep under the stars on the top deck. Plenty of good food (though could be a little more varied). Safe, quick and efficient handling of dive entries and exits for 30+ divers. Dive, eat, sleep, repeat. I enjoyed every step!

Recommended for
Both the boat crew and dive staff went to great lengths to ensure we had the best experience, the dives were great, and the other guests we fun to hang out and dive with.
