One Liveaboard feedback for “MV Pawara

  1. hi , that wost my worst liveaboard trip ever. we had a bad start with a spanish guide, who thinks owns the boat, authorative and really rude. they we have her boyfriend , not friendly at all for obvious reasons. Our guide was very ok . Now, about the boat: it s a smelly boat, even though crew tries, cannot be cleaned. They put too many divers inside, as a result, the saloon was OFF limits, cause the dive guides used it. You had to go via kitchen , so as to reach lower or upper cabins. Food though was REALLY tasty. Captain really good. The tanks had the thing glued in so in PAWARA you are OBLIGED to RENT DIN ADAPTOR!!
    they use the sunbed matress s for the cabin s mattess!!!
    and on top of all that everything is for sale on this boat apart from coffee
    would NOT recommend!!
