Comments Good: cabins are nice and spacious. Common areas are new and comfortable. Very spacious. Best space outside of Asia. Consistent nitric fills. JC was great. Led very approachable dives for everyone. The chef tried his best to put out a good product.

Bad: boat left seven mile beach only once. Captain apparently needed his sleep after being up all night for fire watch.
Seven crew total for twenty guests. Captain Randy and First mate Chris had the poorest and most belligerent attitudes I’ve encountered in ten liveaboards. At one point Chris exclaimed that the company “doesn’t give a $&@@ about us. Captain Randy displayed the most erratic and hyper behavior I’ve seen from a captain. Even after leading an exhausting third dive of the day with depths exceeding 100 feet, his response to the complaining divers was “you made it back? Didn’t you?” And “I told you so.” WHERE IS THE STANDARD OF CARE?

The boat pitches in the slightest of current. Bring your patch. No fire sprinklers. Confusing emergency exit plan.
