The experience with Scubacat on the M/V Adventure was phenomenal from start to finish.
Scubacat will pick you up from your hotel and transfer you to the pier as well as take you back afterwards. The introductions to staff and fellow divers and briefings are informative, fun and interactive, with no lack of emphasis on safety.
Accommodation on board is very comfortable for the size of the boat, though the highlight is the huge group table on the top deck where most of the interaction between staff, customers and eating takes place. Food is good (bacon every morning!!) and some great Thai style dishes come out for lunch and dinner with a choice of at least 3 dishes (the fresh seafood when it is served is very good).
The diving was very good, with a diverse number and types of dive sites visited (I went on both the south and north trips in the Andaman Sea), and our tour leader Kath and her 'right-hand man' Dave were fantastic at briefing the dive sights and spotting marine life (anything from mantas to macro stuff you could never spot yourself)! I'm a dive professional myself having worked for many years in the industry and have not met someone who makes you feel and dive as comfortably on a brand new dive site as Kath. Her briefings are so well informed you often feel you've dived the site and know it by heart before even getting in the water, making your dive much more relaxed and enjoyable.
The boat staff on board are easily the best I've seen in the business, always there to help you and assist without getting in the way. Special mention to the captain who can pilot that thing so precisely to pick you up so you never have to swim far after finishing your dive.
But most of all, the true diver's experience is not only about the diving but also the camaradarie and hospitality, and this is unparalleled. In between dives and after a full day of diving, Kath manages to make everyone feel at home onboard, making sure you all have a wonderful experience.
I highly recommend Scuba Cat Adventure for anyone wanting a fantastic experience on the Andaman Seas, and I'll certainly be visiting again with them soon!
Thank you to all the Scuba Cat crew for a wonderful, unforgettable holiday!
