Comments This was our first liveaboard and it was fantastic! I have been diving for over 17 years and my wife just got certified. You are allowed to dive your own profile. You can have a divemaster dive with you and they will show you a lot of hidden treasures.
Madison and Kent were our divemasters and very laid back and they always made us laugh. Sammy was there to put on our fins and help take off our gear after a dive. Mika was the nightwatch man and no matter what time you would get up he would be there to make coffee. Emerill is a great chef and Poorle cleaned our cabins and served us our meals, always with a smile. Lenny and Cara have earned their number 1 ranking, and if you are able you should dive on this liveaboard. The wrecks are breathtaking and beautiful, some days you dive 2 wrecks and other days you dive 3. There is an outer reef shark dive but due to weather conditions we could not do it. We were just as happy to dive another wreck. Lenny and Cara gave detailed breifs before each dive and you can also purchase slates with the wrecks printed on them to take with you on the dive.
The scuba club we belong to chartered the entire boat so as a group of 10 the single divers had cabins to themselves.
the ultimate question-Would we do this again? YES, YES, YES
