SCUBA Ying 提供了一個很棒的潛水旅程,船行路線是走5方線 總共潛了16支氣瓶,其中包含2支夜潛。整個潛水過程都很棒 除了找鯨鯊的那天的潛點不是很好以外.我是住最經濟型的房型,但是空間也很夠了.餐飲的話比較走印度式及西式,味道ㄧ般。另外還有島上BBQ及上島自由觀光行程 ,活動也蠻豐富的。夜潛真的很棒,一定要去。

I was in one of the Manta Suites and was grateful for the extra space and 3m wide window looking out onto the ocean. Dolphin suites looked good too. Star sea rooms are surprisngly roomy and have some natural light. Cowrie also looks good and can fit 3 people comfortably. All the rooms have a large bathroom. But if you're claustrophobic - get a room on the maindeck with big windows. The rooms are clean and beautifully done. Bathrooms are pretty big with shampoo, soap etc. Totally delicious hot showers. No hairdryer but you can ask the crew to bring you one if needed. There is UK style power plugs but they had supplied a global adaptor in my room. The chef serves up delicious Asian dishes, as well as standard European fare. Healthy fruit desserts (originally disappointing, ultimately a good idea) are occasionally supplemented by ice cream and chocolate sauce or some other chocolate based scrumptiousness. The coffee is good! The team and crew are magnificent: professional, attentive and fun. The diving, for what i remember walls of fish surrounding me: mantas, turtles, friendly sharks, moray eels, and every colorful friendly fish in between. It's hard to believe you are on a dive boat. You can swap dives for massages to some extent - best to check the rules with the team. I had a 40 min back and shoulder massage and a 55min Balinese massage - Abi is a brilliant masseur. The Wifi on board worked well. Sure you needed to be somewhere where you could get reception. But we could all happily send each other photos, post to Facebook, Skype home, whatever. I hope this helps.
