"We could dive with dolphins! The diving equipment was new and really good, the staff very friendly and professional with briefing before each dive, the food on board was really good, and there is flexibility for the dives depending of what people want to see and weather conditions. It was awsome"

“There were only 3 of us onboard as customers so we were outnumbered by the instructors and crew! But that meant we got loads of help from the crew and instructors.

Very comfortable cabins and beautiful boat that was kept spotlessly clean. Unfortunately we didnt see any big fish or mammals (except a whale shark from the boat) but Nov is not the best season to dive here.

Medhat is a brilliant instructor who is always thinking about how to make your dives as comfortable and safe as possible. I did my AOW onboard with him and he was brilliant”

Scuba fanatic, travel ecstatic and loveable rogue. A rootless divemaster and perpetual adrenaline-junky, Alex holds the esteemed rank of Grand Admiral of the Diving Squad; a title he most nobly awarded to himself. A scuba-junky since 2014, he's dived much of the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Maldives, Red Sea, Ireland, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Panama. It's hard to say where he'll pop up next for he never settles; forever a leaf on the wind... or perhaps a lone bubble blasted along on the current.
