Great Overall Experience

Starting with the pickup, it was well coordinated and timely pickup by the team. Once we reached, we had to complete few formalities and check our dive equipment if we take on rent, which i did. I must say, the diving equipment was well maintained and cleaned before every trip. We had some time after it, which we could use to buy any essentials if we forgot and grab some food. In the evening, the entire team was transferred to the vessel followed by safety briefing and cabin allocation. Though the cabin feels too small, but it doesn't matter since most of the time is spend either diving, eating or relaxing on the deck. The next 4 days were literally, EAT-SLEEP-DIVE-REPEAT. 4 dives were scheduled on all the days, except the last day. Before every dive, we had a briefing on how the conditions will be, what will we experience during the dive, and the dive groups. Each group had four divers and a dive instructor. It was good that the groups are divided according to the groups experience and air consumption so that everyone's dive time was maximized. All in all a good overall experience for which all the credits goes to the dive instructors and the Thai crew.

Great diving and experience

Seeing a whale shark on two occasions and the diving in general was superb. My dive guide, Brad was brilliant and super chill guy. The food was really good and the boat crew all really nice people. The dive deck was small and the rooms are really small, but it didn’t effect my experience.

My first great Liveaboard experience

Many first time on this trip, first excellent experience Liveaboard, first time intensively 4 dives each day, first night dive, first time sharing a tiny room with 3 other strangers but no one snore at night and we had so harmony time together and no one complained anything. We saw so many different fishes, including white tip sharks, green turtles, small banded seasnake, baby lion fish, purple crown of thorns, Jenkins whipray, Kohl’s stingray, snappers, giant eel giant groupers, … etc

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

Richelieu Rock is phenomenal, dive leaders all respected the marine life throughout the trip, well rehearsed, professional crew
