Comments The staff was great on this trip.This was probably the best crew on a liveaboard and we have been doing liveaboards since 1990! They actually wanted to dive and show you around. The food was outstanding and varied. We had 14 divers total and everyone got along well and this made for a very pleasant trip.
The suites on this vessel are small compared to others but things were clean and tidy. We did the usual 5 dives a day. The manta rays were spectacular and plentiful and we saw 2 hammerheads as well. There were many nudibranchs as well as lion fish and stone fish. We saw mating Octopuses and numerous varieties of eels. I was disappointed in the coral as not being very colorful - maybe I was just recalling the Barrier Reef trip in Australia. This is easy diving - good for beginners. There was minimal current and good visibility at all times.
