    Deep Andaman Queen liveaboard reviews

    “…all the things that made this trip wonderful:
    The diving (saw a huge Manta! So many fish and great visibility).
    The crew (everyone so kind and helpful).
    The boat (cabin, sun deck, dive deck – much better than expected).
    The communication beforehand (easy and always a quick response)…”
    Nic, March 15 
    Full review on Trip Advisor

    The trip was amazing. No whale sharks but several mantas – what an experience. Thank you for helping me get ready for it. Queen Scuba and the whole crew was absolutely great – highly recommend it. Erin, Australia
