Comments 16 hours and 20 minutes from LAX to Singapore, return is about 2 hours shorter. DIL rooms were great with TV, AC, and hot or cold water tanks in each room. King sized beds in most cabins with two cabins having twin beds and one of those cabins also has a double bed. One cabin available for a wheelchair-bound person. There is also a Japanese soaking tub outside each cabin which is heated after the last dive of the day. All of the staff is well trained in multiple areas so any job needing help might be filled by any possible person. Steve and Miranda, the owners, have done an excellent job in staff training. They also have, for every year since opening, saved hundreds of green turtles whose eggs were laid at waters edge and would have drowned.... a labor intensive job of carefully removing and placing the unhatched eggs in a large box filled with sand 8-10 feet above the water line in the exact order as found. Dive Masters and boat drivers were excellent and helpful with gear, setting up the tanks and BCs and then washing BCs after a day of diving. Three dives a day is the normal routine 7:30, 10:45 and 2:00. Multiple meals and snacks are available throughout the day.
