it's ok!

overall a very good experience. The boat is a bit old and needs renovation. Cabin is just essential, but honestly... who cares when you spend most of the time underwater and in common areas. So for people that do no need fancy stuffs and extreme comfort is more than ok

well organized, everything efficient, price was reasonable

A really fun trip on a great boat

The dive sites were really good, the only issue was the visibility was sometimes poor. There was a lot of fish to watch. If the visibility had been better then these would be world class sites.

It was fun, the trip was well organised, the food was great.
