Perrin, 17/05/2019

Nous voilà rentrés il y a peu des îles cocos. Nous avons passé une superbe expérience à bord de ce bateau. Le crew était très sympathique, la nourriture très bonne. Au niveau de la plongée, nous en faisions 3 par jour mis à part 2 jours où l'on en a fait 4. Je trouve qu'il serait bien d'avancer toute les plongées du matin car la 3e plongée n'était malheureusement jamais très intéressante car plus rien à voir...Les sites de plongée était parfois un peu répétitif. Je trouve qu'il est dommage de ne pas appliquer les règles de sécurité expliquée au début car une des personnes à bord a bloquer 3 ordinateurs, dépassé la profondeur prévue au nitrox et celle-ci a pu continuer à plonger, malgré son inconscience. Mais autrement, ce fut super, nous en gardons un super souvenir et surtout nous y retournerions volontiers mais un peu plus tard pour qu'il y ait encore plus de requins marteaux!

Fantastica! Il tesoro non è nelll'isola, ma sotto l' isola. Sebbene le immersioni siano molto impegnative causa correnti e condizioni meteo marine, la bellezza , la vita, i pesci (soprattutto squali), meritano un viaggio lontano e costoso, da fare almeno una volta nella vita. N..b.. Per chi non lo sapesse questa è l'isola in cui R.L . Stevenson ha ambientato il romanzo "l'isola del tesoro"

Cécile Et Fabien, 15/11/2014

Nous voila rentrés depuis un peu plus d'une semaine... Voici un petit retour de notre voyage (dans le désordre): Points positifs: - On est supers supers supers contents de nos plongées! Nous avons vu ce que nous étions allés chercher, à savoir les bancs de marteaux... - L'équipe du wind dancer est vraiment très agréable - La nourriture était TRES bonne - L'organisation était bien rodée mais laissait place à quelques modifs pour satisfaire tout le monde... Points "négatifs" (car il faut bien être objectif): - La réglementation a encore changé et nous n'avons fait que 2 plongées de nuit au lieu des 3 prévues et indiquées sur le document "know before you go" - Un des deux dive master était occupé à 100% des plongées avec un photographe professionnel qui était à bord et nous avons donc fait une plongée sur deux avec le capitaine du bateau qui était plus intéressé par prendre ses photos que par autre chose.. - La cabine master que nous avions choisi n'avait pas vraiment d'avantage (en tout cas pas ceux auxquels nous nous attendions): pas de hublot et surtout étonnamment bruyante car au dessus du générateur et surtout avec une clim ultra puissante et non réglable......... Au final, le bilan est très positif et nous avons bien l'intention de repartir le plus vite possible . A bientôt, Subaquatiquement, Cécile
