Awesome trip!Verified review

I spent awesome holidays with Quino. Diving was really good: first diving, I saw dolphins, mantas, hammerhead sharks. and last day, I saw a couple of humpback whales under the water. Amazing trip ever! And food was so nice. It was the most delicious food I had ever eaten in liveaboard. All crew are very kind. I miss Quino. I hope to go again next year.

Best crew eveerVerified review

I have been on many live-aboards all over the world, and I say this boat had the best crew EVER! In every facet the crew carried out their roles superbly. From Juan the Cruise Director and Dive Master, Jorge, hands down the best cook/chef I have ever experienced, to all the individual crew members......WOW!!! The diving itself was interesting and I will be back.
