    Great trip, really a fun crew with lots of dives. Turks and Caicos, Turks and Caicos in August

    Really enjoyed the walls we dove on this trip, great sites! Dive guides were great and Jo was really fun with her costumes and edutainment regrading our dives. Chef Stan prepared snacks and meals that everyone loved and kept our energy up for the dives. Really nice not to need to set up dive gear for each dive. Simply unhook your reg and they fill your tank. Fun trip with great dives!

    Everything was great! Turks and Caicos, Turks and Caicos in December

    I was very happy when I saw my cabin with two single beds and bathroom. Comparing to other boats, I felt it much bigger and comfortable. We did 5 dives a day everyday and one of the night dives was awesome with a lot of sharks. Food and drinks are all included and all the meals are delicious. The crews are very friendly and helpful. They are very hard workers to make our stay comfortable. Overall, the boat experience was wonderful!

    Top Notch Experience! Turks and Caicos, Turks and Caicos in July

    The crew was awesome and the diving was lively! Jo kept things interesting with her hilarious, yet informative dive briefings. Never needed for anything as the crew's top priorities were that we had the best experience possible and that we always had what was needed. Highly recommend!

    Wonderful crew, marvelous diving! Turks and Caicos, Turks and Caicos in August

    The main highlight of the trip was the diving (of course). The crew made every dive interesting and fun. Jo (female) wore a theme outfit for just about every dive she led, Chris often wore a theme outfit too. Joe (male) was quick to point out every tiny creature on the dives he led, he seemed to know just where each one hung out. I was nervous about night diving, Jo was attentive and watchful until she saw me relaxing in the dive. The food was excellent, we all looked forward to seeing what Stan would present next.

    Comments from a liveaboard novice. Turks and Caicos, Turks and Caicos in August

    We were a little nervous about being "stuck" on a boat with no where to hide. Boy were we wrong. There was plenty of room to chill whenever you wanted. The crew was fantastic. Joe and her costumes and stories was a delight. But don't pass up the chance to talk with JF, the captain. He has led quite a life. Stan is the man in the kitchen. You won't go hungry. Before talking about the diving I have to once again commend the crew. I experienced a severe back spasm exiting the first dive. They did everything they could to get me back in the water. With their help I missed just three dives. We very quickly discovered the first difference between diving a liveaboard vs a day boat. We crossed paths with exactly one other group the entire week. We had each site all to ourselves. I enjoy taking time to look at the coral small fish. My dive buddy loves sharks. Neither of us was disappointed with the diving. We logged over 20 hours of bottom time and enjoyed every minute. Who knew that sharks just loved to play in the light of your flashlight during a night dive.

    Fun Dive eat dive & dive eat dive dive eat dive sleep and do it again! Turks and Caicos, Turks and Caicos in August

    Most of the sites we were able to find or explore and see more types of sea life than I have on prior trips with the crew making it fun knowing what we would see and or find around each site that we visited. Each day the crew / dive masters would have a different theme for all of the sites even going so far as to dress up in costumes as this would keep things fun. They were vary mindful of all needed safety aspects reviewing prior to leaving port after boarding boat which covered boat as well as diving. Never mind the Great diving the cook onboard would make snacks and meals that you wouldn't expect with a variety each day they also had well stocked soft drinks. So while the boat was not a palace it was very functional and comfortable dive area was set up nicely with places for your gear so you would not need to take it to your cabin. Between dives it was nice to be up top on fly bridge while going to our next dive sites as on various days we would have Dolphins swimming to keep up with the boat, just having fun jumping boat wake.
