    Good first liveaboard Similans, Bon, Tachai & Richelieu, Thailand in January

    This was my first live aboard, so I didn’t quite know what to expect. 4 dives a day was a bit much, but the dive spots were nice, especially the dives in Richelieu Rock were amazing, and makes it worth doing a longer cruise. The crew and guides were very helpful, and made effort to accommodate different needs and levels of diving. The cabins were quite basic, but adequate compared to the price.

    Very good
    Tutto ottimo! Forse un po' meno di spigoli vivi sulla barca, però sono dettagli. Similans, Bon, Tachai & Richelieu, Thailand in February

    Tutti. Peccato solo non aver visto nessun pelagico, però per fortuna il mare non è uno zoo. Le immersioni sempre con poche altre barche intorno o anche nessuna.

    Three of the best days in my life Bon, Tachai & Richelieu, Thailand in March

    As an rather unexperienced diver it felt really awesome how the diveguide were adjusting to your level, and it wasn’t like we were missing out on anything, we still got to see manta, a LOT of different kinds of morays and fish and slugs and all you could ever dream of. My logbook didn’t have room for all the awesome creatures we identified together. Next time I will definately go for the full five days.
