Comments This is the first liveaboard that my wife and I have experienced and I must say WOW! If you want a dive vacation then I recommend a liveaboard--5 dives a day. The crew were excellent at making all guests feel right at home. The food was good, the rooms were better than we had anticipated, and the diving was excellent. No need for alot of clothing so you can pack light. We try to stay at resorts that allow 3 dives per day and are all inclusive, The NEKTON provided the best of all worlds with as many dives as you could do and great accomodations on the water! We will definately join this vessel again for another great week of vacation and diving. Thank you to the crew of the Nekton Pilot during the week of January 1, 2005, this was our best dive vacation to date!
