All the crew made me feel very comfortable during all the trip. The best for me were Celina, that always looked after me, and Yann. And the hostess: Jenny, Laurentina and Cecilia they were always very efficient. I Liked very much the presentations from Arturo Boca about sharks, mantas and angelfish, I learned a lot, thanks.

I have taken part in some others live aboard and, undoubtly, this has been the best ever. It was perfectely organised: COVID issues, shifts, timetables, briefings, etc. A real pleasure to having take part on this trip. I understand that the dive is as it is, but perhaps, I missed some more diving spots in the 28 dives we did. Thanks to all of you.

As dive guide Jessie did an outstanding job of looking out for her group and taking care of others. She is observant and attentive at all times.

The entire Crew, Staff and Dive Team did an exceptional job. Not just professionally, but above and beyond in friendliness and helpfulness. The captain, Roman, was very personable and was a great influence on the entire crew. It was our privilege to travel with this group.

THE CREW WAS PHENOMENAL! NO EGOS, INFIGHTING, AND THEY WORKED WELL TOGETHER. RAMON WAS AN AWESOME CAPTAIN. VERY VISIBLE AND MADE TIME EACH DAY FOR ALL THE GUESTS. GILBERTO AND DANIEL WERE VERY HELPFUL AND ALWAYS MET US WITH A SMILE. GILBERTO COULD BE A COMEDIAN AS WELL! LAURENTENTA, CECILIA, AND JENNY WERE SPECIAL HOSTESSES . VERY PATIENT AND HELPFUL EVEN FOR SOME GUESTS WHO WERE NOT SO NICE. JULIO AND MANUEL ARE GREAT CHEFS AND THE FOOD WAS PHENOMENAL EVEN FOR US VEGETARIANS AND VEGANS. LASTLY, THE DIVEMASTERS WERE GREAT IN ENVIRONMENTS THAT MANY OF THE DIVERS HAD NEVER ENCOUNTERED. YANN, PATO, JESSIE. AND CELINA WERE GREAT. MY ONLY RECOMMENDATION IS IT WOULD BE HELPFUL IF ALL THE DIVEMASTERS CONFIRMED THE AIR PRESSURE LEVEL TO CHECK BACK WITH THEM DURING THE TRIP (E.G. HALF TANK, 1000, 500. YANN WAS PROBABLY ARE FAVORITE DM. ARTURO TENDED TO PAY MORE ATTENTION AND DOCUMENT WHAT HE WAS SEEING ON HIS WRIST PAD THAN PAYING ATTENTION TO THE DIVERS. ARTURO IS AN AWESOME MARINE BIOLOGIST THOUGH AND I ENJOYED LEARNING FROM HIM.

With the aging divers, you might want to put some handles in the shower and bathroom to help avoid people slipping.

All divemasters, hostesses, and deck crew worked tirelessly to make this an excellent trip. I've been on many dive boats where the Capt "only" drove the boat. Ramon was everywhere, always working, keeping us informed, and checking how we were doing. Divemasters and hostesses made us all feel comfortable. A great group!

All of the crew work together so well, I can't say one was better than the others. All excellent, professional, and friendly.

Your Captain Ramone came down every day to greet us and tell each group our navigation plans. He knew all of our names and checked in to see if there was anything at all that we needed. I felt completely safe and in good hands. He runs a tight ship and and by the way, he was very personable and funny! We loved him.

The entire crew receives 5 stars!! I cannot tell you how impressed I am with every individual on the crew of the Bel Amie. If I were to pick one crewmate that impressed me the most, it would be one of the hidden team members... Julio your chef. He was amazing. I had many special requests and each meal was tastier than the last! The cuisine was gourmet and delicious. The presentation was literally unbelievable. How he did this for 40 people baffles me. The dining room staff took care of my every need with a smile even for the tiniest request. The dive staff was so helpful and organized it was a breeze. Every one of them were professionals. I want you to know, I rarely if ever write a review, but this diving and live aboard experience was beyond my imagination. Your staff represents you very well. Thank you so much for the 5 star excellence.

I am not a diver, and did not know what to expect on this trip. The crew made me feel very comfortable and I got to snorkel often. I saw sea life I never imagined I would get to see, being a lowly snorkeler ;) I am so pleased with the crew and service.

All the crew members were exceptional in my opinion, They called all of us by name on the first day,

There are some small things. The bed are bolted down to the deck with a metal bracket. It would be good if it had a foam cover to prevent stubbed toes. The night stand in the bedroom could use an edge to keep items from sliding off.

The dive masters were great. My wife needed extra help getting into and out of the water and they made it easy for her.
