The staff aboard the Andaman Queen were fantastic! The assistance on the dive platform was the BEST! The galley provided sumptuous food in great portions; there was always more than enough, and more. The boat captain is a Master; never a line toss to pick you up as he was right there on the spot to bring you aboard. And... More

If you have the Chinese edition for your website, then you are the best. Since most of the Chinese do not like to read English, and your company is locating in Hongkong.

Dive-the-World is the best dive travel website I've ever found on the web, but they have some serious issues with service. The website prices are very often wrong! I've emailed Dive-the-World 3 times over the years to make bookings for different cruises. My friend has emailed once. Of those 4 attempts to book, they have told us that the price... More

Thanks for your review. Yes admittedly your experience with DTW has involved some price issues. We do our best to keep all the price information accurate and up-to-date but things can change very quickly in our world. For example, local taxes in a certain destination might change overnight and if someone makes an enquiry before we can change the website... More

First the Boat was much smaller and less confortable than pictures posted on the website showed; I skip the lack of safety equipement which is a kind of thai standard, to highlight that the boat crew was nice and friendly and the cook great. But the most striking was related to diving as this is what we were here for.... More

A buddy and I (25 year old from USA) went on the Pawara from January 9-13th 2014 and shared a standard cabin. The experience was above par, so say the least. The staff on the boat were amazing, from the chefs, decks, hands, and dive guides, all were professional yet relaxed and cool. The guides were very personable, extremely knowledgeable,... More

We had a wonderful diving trip on the Sy Diva Andaman, 14 guest and 12 staff! Nothing was too much trouble for them. Lovely relaxed diving, excellent food, gorgeous massages! We booked with Beef at Dive the World, everything went precisely according to schedule. Will definitely booker with them again. Lesley South Africa

I chose Dive the World as our agency for a recent liveaboard dive cruise in Thailand. I sent out several requests and within hours I received a reply back from dive the world. The agent worked with my dates and budget to book us on a liveaboard that we absolutely loved. It was easy and hassle-free. I plan on using... More

this was our first liveaboard search, and we had trouble deciding between Malaysia, Indonesia, or Thailand. The Dive the World website is extremely clear about dates of trips and reviews of the boats, which was critical to help us make our choice. Once we decided to book, the whole process only took a few hours to get us confirmed. And... More

Salut Loic. Yes our prices are the same as if you go direct to the operator. Customers don't pay for our service, the operators pay us commission when we send them customers. So our independent, impartial advice makes sure people get exactly what they are looking for - and the service is free! It is great to hear how much... More

Very efficient and quick to respond. At no point there was an ambiguity about the status of the trip. The interface with Similan Diving Safaris (who were running the boat) was problemless.
