This is a luxury dive boat (a true Four Seasons run property), with 10 very
large and comfortable cabins w/ full bath, plus one luxury suite.   The
crew on both the Explorer and dive team on the Dohni were professional,
fun, courteous and provided the same top level service that you would find

Were more dives offered or just 3 dives a day?  Usually liveaboards allow 4
or 5 dives a day.  Did the boat provide Nitrox?  What was the water
temperature?  What was the visibility?  30ft - 100ft?   Where were the 7
guests from?

What was the temperature? Thanks

The seven other guests were from the US, Germany and Japan.  Everyone spoke
English.  There were not other dives offered -- it was plenty for me, but
if you wanted to do more, maybe not the right boat.  Visibility varied from
site to site -- but overall it was very good -- which I understand was
typical for our time of year.   Temperature was very comfortable in a thin
3mm wetsuit.
