After several emails and lots of promises from Thorfinn's captain we finally made our mind to dive on that liveaboard. Unfortunately none of the promises became true. There was not enough oxygen or helium onboard to keep up with what we expected and were guaranteed. Furthermore we suspected the equipmet was not oxygen clean and when we asked the captain he proudly admitted it was not as he never believed in such as a procedure. Obviously there is always a risk to this as partial blending was used and the air we breather tasted really oily. Plus now we will have to reclean our regs! It was obious the captain knew nothing about tech diving, gas blending and constantly downed us for not diving on a single air tank! The boat itself was never built for diving so it is difficult to move around tech gear. Plus it never moves from the anchoring so what it is the point of booking a liveaboard? Although the boat is very big the bow was never accesible as it was always full of garbage and junk. The jacuzzi was never full and when we requested to get it filled the pumps were not working so it just felt like a hot bath. We stayed on our last night in Truk Stop and they seem to be far more comfortable dealing with tech divers.
The diving is awesome though and would certainly be rated as 5 star. Unfortunately we made the wrong choice. We will go back but will for sure book with one of tne land based dive centers.
