Thank you to all of the amazing staff!
Any crew standout?
yes. Tiago, Juan and Sten are all incredible guides and are enthusiastic about the incredible marine life in the area. It was a pleasure diving with them all. The hostesses also did a great great job with waiting on us due to COVID

Cabinet in the premium suite could use some fixing, the doors will not stay shut and they swing constantly with the boat rocking and squeak loudly

The staff did a great job of managing the additional responsibilities with COVID and were able to do it with a smile. I am super-impressed, and have a high standard for all liveaboards from now on.

There were so many great crew, and I really enjoyed all of them. Kudos to the Chef--his food was wonderfully cooked and healthy. I loved the dynamic of Laurentina and Nubia and they are spectacular hosts. As for divemasters, they were all stellar, but Juan's calm energy and willingness to share his knowledge on how to be a good diver was wonderful. I loved Sten's energy, and Pablo's gentle professionalism, and Tiago's laugh and energy is infectious. Seriously--I have zero complaints and only positive accolades.

The only suggestion is to add some lights to the upper deck for the night.

Where to start! The whole crew is amazing. The hostesses worked their butts off. The dive masters were knowledgeable, funny professional and all around amazing!

Juan was our favorite of the dive masters / he was really calm and relaxed in the water and made it easy to follow and spot all the wildlife. But honestly everyone was exceptional. The hostesses always made sure there was water before every dive and a hot drink as soon as we got back on the boat which was really appreciated. The captain was also very professional and clear. We felt very safe on the trip.

Yes! David Serradell with Backscatter for the one on one photography workshop made this the trip of a lifetime! I was able to cover everything from hands on camera settings, workshop seminars, in the water lighting practice and of course, getting the Manta shots i was after!

Pretty much all the crew were excellent, but It seems that I had more interaction with Sten, Martyn, Yann, Sylvia and Alin. Martyn was probably the most stand-out person, always goofy, keeping everyone in high spirits and making everyone laugh about something he would do or say. He is certainly an asset to your company.

Sten was an incredible divemaster. On the first checkout dive he literally let me use his personal mask because the rental mask had a hole in it. All the hostesses, Alin, Sylvia and Adriana were great and super friendly and worked hard to take care of all of us. Really all the crew and divemasters were amazing. Martyn is a natural showman and entertainer for the guests. Yann is a great divemaster and an all around good guy. Daniel will make a great Captain!

Everyone on the crew was amazing! The dive masters helped me a lot and made every dive so much fun! The hostesses, mates, captain, engineer, and everyone was excellent. The boat was super clean and everything was so nice! I can´t wait to come back on the belle Amie!

Huge thanks to Sten who showed us his favorite dive sites, Martyn for the endless entertainment, Adil for amazing video tips, Jann and Mirko who always had a positive attitude and the hostesses who bent over backwards to accommodate our every need.

Ir was a great trip. Definitely stayed above my better expectations. Lots of underwater animal encounters. Great dive spots. Very good dive deck structure, with hot showers, freshwater tanks for equipment rinsing. Beach for cameras with compressed air for quick drying. And due to all the problems of the coronavírus (transport restrictions, cancelled flights, closed hotels), the crew offered to help us with anything we might need. Very, very nice crew.

They were all very polite and helpful. Always smiling, always offering service and help.

I would like that part of the sun deck could be covered to have some shadow, not much, just to take a nap.

All of them were very polite and helpful. I loved them all.

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.
