“My first impression of the boat was not so great, my girlfriend almost wanted to turn around and not go on anymore. Then we took a deep breath, we were greeted by great energy and smiles from the crew. The price was cheap so of course you don’t expect luxury. Everything was in working condition and the crew was friendly. Good thing we did it because after all, it was an outstanding experience.
We sailed the typical itinerary and the dives were stunning all along the way. You dive from a dhoni and that’s great, otherwise the main boat would be much more busy and noisy with the air compressor. We like to eat healthy and stay fit, the food was great. The young cook made a variety of local and western food and it was always good. The dive crew was very knowledgable of the dive sites and they were of good help at all times.
We would definitely go back; being on a fancier boat would not have given us better dives and in this case that’s all that matters. We have seen so many reef sharks, two whale sharks, one nurse shark and thousands of fishes!!! The night dive was also perfect! If you have a big budget and want more luxury then good for you but otherwise this boat has everything you need and more!!! We hope this was helpful! Enjoy!”
