Nov 2019 6N tripVerified review

1. I arrived in the afternoon and they arranged a car to reach the boat with extra charge. I missed first day's check dive and night dive. Consider this to choose your airline. 2. Whale sharks are natural wonders. The boat people picked up correct timing and place to observe whale sharks, and all the guests could enjoy swimming with this gentle creatures. 3. Morning snack with briefing - diving - normal breakfast - diving or snorkeling - lunch - move to other site or diving or snorkeling - afternoon snack - night dive - dinner, was usual flow of the day. 4. On the last two days, it rained. My cabin had leakage, thus I couldn't sleep well as the half of my body became wet. Boat was not a huge one, so it is difficult to find dry place to sleep on. 5. The land excursion with extra charge: Lac Assal (salt lake) and volcano area. good choice to spend one half day. 6. I stayed at a hotel for one night after finishing this trip. They arranged transfer to the airport on next day with extra charge.
