Liveaboard is living on a boat. And that defines the focus of it: Liveaboard scuba travel makes you to get more dives out of a vacation with no logistic stress. Not carrying heavy tanks and crossing beaches in wetsuits. And having a comfortable cabin a few meter from the dive deck just adds to the convenience of liveaboards. Liveaboard means:
Dive – Eat – Sleep and Repeat!
The ease of logistics makes a liveaboard the choice. The cabin, dining room and dive deck are close. And the bar and the Jacuzzi are not far either!
