The food has been incredible and as a vegetarian they have come up with some fantastic alternatives for me which I´m very grateful for! The dives have been truly amazing, we´ve seen hammerheads, interacted with tons of playful sea lions, and seen so much beautiful other sea life.

The level of service on the Gallant Lady is unsurpassed. The experienced dive guides where incredibly helpful. They did everything they possible could for us. They knew everything about all of our equipment, and were also knowledgeable about the sea life. The crew on the boat spoiled us at every opportunity.
