    Great trip, great crew Similan - Koh Bon - Koh Tachai - Richelieu Rock, Thailand in February

    Very interesting diving spots, but should be recommended rather to advanced divers (depth, currents). A reef mayby not the best, but great rocks and diversity of sealife. The sea were not very calm even in high season, so people with seasickness can have some problem (there is a long distance between the diving spots). Because of wind, we did not manage to get to Richelieu Rock. We had a standard cabin on the lower deck, and our private bathroom did not smell well, especially in the morning we had dirty water on the floor. Everything else was perfect. The whole boat was confortable, with a lot of space. The crew extremely helpful and friendly. Very good food. A lot of diving.

    Great boat with great staff. Fits a huge amount of divers without getting crowded. Very modern and luxurious. The Similans are awesome as expected, really got the impression the staff knew where to find all the good stuff. Think we had 7 dive masters with us in total.

    Excellent Liveaboard experience Similan - Koh Bon - Koh Tachai - Richelieu Rock, Thailand in April

    The organisation on the boat was excellent. The comfort in the cabin was far better than expected. (Double cabin for myself & my partner) The bathroom was roomy too. A big plus was an excellent cook. I have food allergies and so did many others and the cook catered 100% for everyone. I had heard from other liveaboards that food was limited and you had to be quick. On this liveaboard this was not the case. Enough food for everyone and very tasty. Every dive site had something different for you to look at and the Dive guides knew exactly where to go to see new and exciting things. Recommend West Coast Divers to anyone booking a liveaboard.

    Great trip Similan - Koh Bon - Koh Tachai - Richelieu Rock, Thailand in November

    First time doing 4 dives a day on a liveaboard, had a great time. Boat staff was on top of keeping the boat clean and in good shape, making good food, and being generally friendly. Dive staff was all super helpful all around and tried hard to make sure everyone was comfortable and enjoying themselves. Only down side was that some of the dive sites were crowded due to other boats diving at the same time. The diving was still pretty great though as far as marine life. Would recommend.

    Awesome dive trip Similan - Koh Bon - Koh Tachai - Richelieu Rock, Thailand in December

    This is our first live aboard and it exceeded our expectations. Can't speak for other dive masters, but ours was Kawalyn who was great. She made sure to ask us how we like to dive and tried to adjust to our style. Kwan, who was in charge, was awesome as well and really did everything in her power to make sure everyone had a good time. Weather prevented us for making to the Richelieu rock, and was more murky and choppy than ideal, but the abundance of sea life is amazing. Food was a cherry on top - extraordinary
