Comments Despite the smallish size of the boat, the great configuration of it makes it feel very roomy. The camera area is one of the best we have seen so far on any liveaboard.Our cabin was also very roomy. The staff is very attentive to details and safety is always a priority.
The food was very well prepared and presented; lots of variety and great salads every meal.
Due to health issues, I was not able to dive this trip but my husband did.The crew made sure that I could snorkel over the divers almost every dive always keeping an eye out for me.
We did a land tour on Peleliu to see the relics of WWII: very worthwhile!! The trip to Jellyfish lake is an incredible experience. Do not miss it!
Best dives: Blue Corner with highlight being the Napoleon Wrasses following divers like puppies, German Channel with a Manta encounter.
One negative point: Nitrox compressor was out of order forcing everyone to dive on air, not a good thing on a liveaboard....
