Just came back from a 7-day live-aboard and can't find a thing to fault. Organisation, accommodation, equipment, food and the boat itself were all first rate. Similarly, the dive leaders were all highly skilled and experienced, and knew their dive sites intimately to bring us excellent diving wherever and whenever we went. Finally, the on-board crew couldn't have looked after us better. Highly recommended. MIles Barry
