What our clients say
"'The boat was superb lovely atmosphere, very good food, excellent service including a masseuse and as for the diving I think it was the best we have ever had. A bit little murky but that attracted the mantas .Lots of sharks, huge schools of fish of every description and of course wabbegongs , pigmy seahorses,blue ringed octopus and nudibranks! The soft coral was amazing I have not seen such beautiful colours and amounts before. Four dives a day almost every day with a mixture of sites If you have not been there you should go, I cant wait to go back.' Liveaboard Mermaid II "
