Absolutely perfect

It was a perfect vacation. The cabins are comfortable, the boat was beautiful, the food was authentic and delicious. It was the crew that made the experience perfect. Everyone was kind, professional, enthusiastic. You can tell they enjoy and take pride in their work. They want to share these dive sites and make the trip a positive and enjoyable one. No amount of atmosphere can make up for what a dedicated and invested staff brings to the experience and they are what made my vacation so wonderful. I am so very grateful for them

Excellent Liveaboard with Great Diving

Had a great time this past week aboard the Junk, they have a fantastic crew that makes your life easy! You really don’t have to worry about anything besides staying hydrated and enjoying your dives. Crew helps you from the moment you step on the dock, taking all luggage, helping you on and off the boat, refilling tanks between dives, helping you out of wetsuits, getting you in and out of the dingys, they truly make everything easy for you which helps enjoy the diving and the trip even more. The dives themselves are at beautiful sites, with great coral and interesting things to see. We didn’t get the luckiest on seeing “big stuff” on my trip, but macro lovers were thrilled on every dive. None of the dives were difficult, any diver could enjoy them. Highly recommend anyone visiting Phuket dives with the Junk!
