Knowledge dive guides paired with good food make a great vacations

The trip was amazingly organised. We had some little surprises and the crew reacted very well, e.g. the king decided to dive our dive spot and our tour had to re-route. The alternative dive spot was brilliant and not commonly visited. Our boat was the only one which certainly makes a great experience. The timing of the dives was generally planned so that we were rarely in the water with divers from other boats. We had a chance for sunrise and sunset dives. Divers were divided based on experience - beginner, advanced and experienced - and 2 jump groups. We had 3 dive guides - Thomas, Pauline, Maren. The dive guides were very knowledgeable and good in pointing out marine life. The food was amazing - generally one Thai dish and one European dish and both were very good. The crew was very friendly and super helpful. I would recommend this trip anytime. Thank you, Thomas, Pauline and Maren for a great trip.

Marco Polo Adventure

I recently had the pleasure of spending 6 days/6 nights on the Marco Polo Liveaboard run by Sea Bees for an adventure to the Similan Islands. The trip was great in every way. The Sea Bees Office Staff were friendly and welcoming The Marco Polo may be a small boat, but it is comfortable and friendly, the cabins are functional and more roomy than I expected and the size of the boat means everyone mixes ensuring a great atmosphere. The big plus is the Food is amazing The Dive Crew of Maren, Misha and Dave made the trip one to remember, thanks all. Especially Misha, who was mine and my buddies Dive Guide, for making trip one to remember I would 100% recommend Sea Bees and the Marco Polo
