This German owned and boat is popular divers from all countries. Prices are good, especially if you want a private single cabin or have a non diving partner.

“Can’t recommend this boat and crew highly enough. They are all really good at their jobs and look after the guests extremely well. All dive guides are professional, brilliant in the water and understand the needs and wants of the guests. A special mention for our guide Jona. She spots things others can only dream of.The diving was very good, water around 28c. Saw whale shark, eagle rays and a manta. Plenty of Tuna ,Trevally, several Octopus. Very few other boats out there!! We’ll be back !!” Andy Feb 2019 Read in Trip Advisor
