All of the crew were amazing throughout the whole trip. Given the craziness that is happening in the rest of the world - they made it all go away for the week. I was 50:50 as to whether I should board or return home, but I am so glad I stayed. I hope that you are up and running again quickly because I for one will be back as soon as I can.

out of all my trips on the belle, this was without question the best. interestingly the worst diving, not many animals but thats the ocean hey, but this crew work amazingly well together, feeding on each others strengths and honestly theyre all so happy and incredibly hard working. i watched them cleaning the boat in areas i couldnt see, at all times of day and night. just an incredible crew, nothing but great comments.

The entire crew were outstanding not only imdividually but also as a team. Difficult to call out indivduals but certainly Enrique the chef was very creative and all his food was excellent {how about a Nautilus recipe book?} Steins clear professionalism and enthusiasm for his job were a shining beacon throughout the trip. But again all the staff were amazing and not enough room here for the praise.

It would be wonderful to sit and eat with the crew, if possible. I would like to be able to talk with them more about all of their experiences, and meals are a good time to do that.

All of the crew were wonderful, I only wish we could have spent more time with everyone, since they all have so many stories and tips for wildlife interaction. Every one of our guides was a reassuring presence in the water, keeping control of the group when necessary without ever being overbearing or restrictive. Captain Beto struck a perfect balance of approachability, professionalism, humor, and obvious competence. Seeing him working a dive boat and having him present around the galley and dive deck made us feel very comfortable, knowing that he was taking a proactive approach to maintaining a safe and happy ship. We heard a quiet beeping noise one evening, and I had zero hesitation in asking about it, getting an immediate satisfactory answer and resolution. Also, he looks good in green.

I cannot fault the crew. They have all been great, worked brilliantly as a team, especially as I needed help with a stiff hip. I also loved the lectures on the mantas. The bed was lovely.

All of the crew were amazing they worked so hard to ensure we all had a great time and did their very best to get the most out of the diving when conditions were not the greatest. Their response to our medical issue was fast, professional & caring.

all were excellent. Nubia and Aline could not do enough, everyone was extremely courteous and friendly, a great trip. Mirko was very kind and the captain a lovely person. Ivan was lovely to dive with, genuinely excited to see animals himself.

Laurentina, Adriana, Enrique, Ronald, Beto… Despite my knowing them all well, they always present themselves in a very professional manner. No matter the long day, or whatever challenges, (from our perspective) they seamlessly transition from wearing one hat to the other… with good humor and smiles on their faces. They give us, and everyone on the boat, first class service…always…which speaks to their quality of character and care in what they do. Three others stood out to me on this trip… Gato (Christian), Xavi (Xavier), and Stein!! They were ALL wonderful, dependable and fun. Ronald stands out as a natural leader...level headed and respected in all that he does. The entire crew was wonderful. All high assets to the operation (IMHO). Also… poor Monte was sick a couple of days. While he was down and out, the crew all displayed genuine concern about his condition. They went above and beyond to help take care of him. It was truly appreciated… THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING MIKE…We had a fun trip...
