Great trip!

This trip was the “dive and chill” trip, which is a nice mix of diving and going to beaches. I did feel a bit shorted on the dives since we only did 6, but it was the rainy season so that happens. The crew was very kind and I had a great time! John (dive instructor) was awesome! Would definitely recommend!

Amazing and Relaxing

It was just my fiance and myself as guests on the boat. Upon boarding the boat we were welcomed to a large common area with lots of room to relax in between and after diving and island/beach activities. The cabins were spacious with beds large enough to comfortably sleep two adults. The bathrooms were clean and the showers had plenty of cold and hot water. All the meals were prepared fresh and in abundance! There was so much food every meal, and all of it was delicious! Captain Addy was extremely familiar with the islands and was able to take us to many dive sites where we were the first divers there, allowing us to see undisturbed locations. Most days we would do two dives and relax the rest of the afternoon and evening. There was no "dive, dive, dive" mentality. Our dive master John was extremely knowledgeable of each dive site and even gave me tips to increase by bottom time considerably. The crew was very helpful in assisting us in and out of the water as well. The on-board massage found tension in me that I didn't even know I had! Our trips to some of the islands were incredible and had something for everyone. Between the beautiful scenery, delicious food, spacious accommodations, and highly-trained staff, I can honestly say this was the most incredible and relaxing liveaboard that we had been on.
