Comments Overall this was a great trip with great food, crew, and fellow divers. They are not that experienced with competent divers and expect us to do something stupid during a dive. Most of our group could safely outdive our divemasters. Richelieu Rock was certainly the highlight of the trip. We did four dives there and each one was magical.

Reporter and Travel

Dive Experience Over 1000 dives
Where else diving Channel Islands, Truk, Philippines, Australia, Hawaii, Florida, Turks Caicos, Dominican Republic, and Sri Lanka
Closest Airport Phuket Getting There Air Philippines was great, but Air Asia is to be avoided at all cost. They charged me $400 for excess baggage out of Saigon to Phuket. Their service on board was atrocious. They offered no snacks or water. Horrible airline.
