Amazing, exciting, overwhelming, beautiful.

I loved living on a boat. The diving was the best I have ever experienced. The people were amazing. The incredible amount of wildlife under the water was shocking.

Very professional dive and boat crew

Richelieu Rock is something else, the abundance of marine life is beyond imagination. The boat was too cramped with the 4 person dorm room - they should take it out. Don't take this room - for a few bucks more, get a twin that has space for a bag. I ended up sleeping on deck instead

Wonderful Experience

It was an excellent trip with MQ 7! The dive sites were beautiful and we did early morning dive everyday to be awakening with the ocean which was quite amazing! All the staffs were helpful and friendly, the guide was professional and responsible as well. The food was delicious without repeating any dishes in 5 days. The LiveAboard is definitely good value for the money.

Extremely good money for quality of the accommodation

This is a budget boat. Thus accommodation is not luxury. That said, everything else was fantastic: dive sites, dive guides, food. Thus, if you are on a low budget trip, I would strongly recommend this boat and trip.
