This was a top notch trip. The boat was in excellent condition and the
cabins were comfortable with ensuite video. The food was excellent a mix of
Thai and western all you could eat.The dive deck was spacious boxes under
seat for all gear. For those who needed them 100cc steel tanks were
available. All dive from tenders with ladders. Lots of help carrying gear
donning wet suits etc from deck crew.Divemasters were in water with groups
of 3-4 on every dive pointed out hard to find critters of which there were
a lot. Tender drivers were with you as soon as came to surface no problems.
The variety of marine life was outstanding big small and in between. Some
gorgeous colorful reefs most were healthy no bleaching. Over all it would
be hard to beat this trip anywhere.
