    Memories and friends for life! Koh Similan - Koh Bon - Koh Tachai - Richelieu Rock - Boon Sung Wreck: 4 Nights, Thailand in January

    Our liveaboard experience with MQ8 was overall very very good. Great diving in every way: dive masters, instructors, dive briefings and service from the boat-boys made the whole experience very smooth and felt luxurious for us that previously only have gone for day trips when diving. Getting to know the crew and your gear was very nice. We were lucky enough to see both Manta Ray and Reef Shark around Koh Bon/Koh Tachai. Marvellous aquatic life such as huge schools of jackfish and barracuda, and not to mention a palm sized sea horse at 30m depth at Richeliou Rock. We made memories and friends for life, so happy we did this. Great great great value for money! Love from Sweden!
