Thanks so much Paul. We just returned home. It was the best trip of our lives. I will definitely leave a great review on trip advisor. We couldn't have been happier with the boat, the crew, the amazing food, the diving and the other guests on our boat. We made many new friends and had the trip of a lifetime. Matt also asked me to marry him on the trip so it will be forever remembered for that too. Everyone helped us celebrate all week long. It was wonderful. Thanks for all you did to help us prepare for the wonderful trip. We are deeply grateful.

Enjoyed our trip. Staff was very attentive.....food was excellent. Boat was very charming. We lucked out and got, what we thought, was the best of the three dive masters....(Medic). Other guests were very compatible and fun. Plenty of space on the boat.....didn't feel cramped. AC was good in the rooms and much needed.

“Food – amazing, in terms of variety, quality and quantity. The chefs worked tirelessly throughout the trip, and their efforts were really appreciated. The range of Thai cooking expanded my boundaries (and waistline), and for me, they were the stars of the show.

We had a great time. The boat is beautiful and comfortable. Our dive master was good and we enjoyed the company of the others on the boat. I had my best dive experience to date when a manta swam around us for the entire dive.

The food was superb. The boat fantastic. The crew extremely helpful. Control of the diving was the right balance between making sure nothing went wrong but giving people the freedom to explore. We will probably book a Burma trip on the boat in 2016 or 2017

★★★★★

The trip was absolutely first rate in all respects. Very efficient arrival/departure transport, good accommodation and facilities (for a live aboard), consistently good cuisines, a responsive, friendly and professional crew, excellent dive leaders, and a range of fascinating sites and experiences. Overrall, excellent value for money.
