Simply superb. The most amazing diving and the most amazing food and even had my favourite breakfast eggs benedict served by the wonderful Laurentina and her team

It would be unfair to single anyone person out as every one was so helpful and caring. i have been diving for twengy years and been on 15 liveaboards and this is by far the best in every measure

It would be unfair to single anyone out as it is very obviously a team effort by all.

Peter was a fantastic divemaster towing me under the manta ray although all dive masters were fantastic and good fun. Captain Berto and mate Vinente fantastic showing how the ship was driven. Chefs and hosts all fantastic service.

hooks for towels would make it easier to keep your towel.

The diving was wonderful and challenging (current and depth). the number of divers on board and the small size of the dive sites was not ideal - there were times when too many people were in the same place

I think I had everything I could desire. I felt like a queen on the boat, so nothing better than that can be done.

Mayo is an extraordinary divemaster, as well as Ari. Dulce and Favi have alwazs had a special atttention to lla the guests. Hernan has bben very nice and available for everything and for everybody. Joel has always been very carefull to the health of the guests, offering alwys something to drink to people that were in risk to get dehydrated and that didn't feel very well, Luis is a very nice person but, in general, all the staff has been very nice. All of them have been very polite, professional and nice and took care of all the guests

Mayo as the most experienced divemaster knew the dive sites like the back of his hand and was tremendous at the dive briefings and then leading the dives Lauro's pride in the food was clear to see and as a vegetarian he made sure to prepare a plate for me every time after asking for my preferences TJ as the person who kept everything running and striking a rapport with all the guests was great! Luis with his easy going attitude and super helpful nature All of the staff were fantastic!

Everything was amazing, I am so happy with the trip! I was impressed by the quality of rental equipment, its a great idea to provide wing BDC for rent on such trip. As well all the safety devices as gps and noise maker were much appreciated by me, I felt safe in the water. Though I would like to offer few things that could make this experience slightly better from my point of view. I would suggest to put 6-7 meter ropes with something heavy on the other end on rental SMBs for those who dont have reels. It was uncomfortable feeling that I cant inflate rental SMB on my safety stop, I was afraid to drift too far in a current and had to come up a bit faster than I would normally do. Would be good to have usb sticks for sale on the board where I could copy other divers pictures.

All the crew was fantastic! Never met so hard working enthusiactic professionals on other liveaboards. Lauro made me feel like I am in 5 star restaurant every day of the trip. All the divemasters were brilliant and did their best to show as much as possible underwater and make our dives safe and enjoyable. Huge thanks to all the team to make this trip so great!

Everyone was awesome! Impeccable service by the staff; always smiling, in a good mood and willing to go above and beyond our needs immediately. The boat itself is good but it's the quality of the help and service we got at all the time that makes it a great luxury liveaboard experience. The fact that the Captain also dives, carries tanks and helps the crew is very nice and shows great leadership. Really, bravo to all the crew for this extremely enjoyable experience.

The extraordinary impression comes from the excellent team spirit the whole crew transmit during the liveaboard :-)

Just thanks again! Divemasters - when you take control of some of the more 'excitable' divers - verbally and physically when necessary it really makes the difference. Don't ever hesitate to enforce good practice underwater - this doesn't always happen on trips. It ensures the few don't spoil it for the many. Great stuff.

Honestly - everyone! Eva deserves a special mention only because she should go easy on herself - amazing job. Well done everyone. Oh and any captain that dives, shifts bottles and runs skiffs is only going to have the best crew.
