Comments I came w/a dive group of 20 from Chicago. We divided the group in half for our two week stay. For the first week, our split group of ten occupied the resort's liveaboard "Pelagian". For week two, our split group changed places and spent the second week in the resort. This ship was retrofitted to accommodate just ten guests in five staterooms, making for a spacious experience on a ~120' vessel. As an aside: try to jockey for the two forward cabins or the large master cabin--these are a fair amount nicer than the two stern cabins. Meanwhile there were more crew than guests! Both the food & service were fantastic. Diving was done from two zodiacs on each side of the vessel. The reefs in this area all appeared very healthy. The marine life also appeared quite healthy, though there was an absence of large pelagics. For example: we did not see any sharks throughout the two week duration of the trip. Excellent muck diving on one of the days on the liveaboard coupled w/a night dive w/mandarin fish mating. Great crew, great vessel. Loved it!
