Thank you for the memories! The service was excellent, nothing was impossible. The food was incredible – so much variety every day, different cuisines, we all need a diet after this trip! Amazing activities – diving, snorkelling, paddleboard, and fishing. Every day was a blast! Thank you for the attention, the smiles and the memories.

M/Y Safira for 03/01-10/01/2021 for 24 pax
I was the booking agent on M/Y Safira for 03/01-10/01/2021 for 24 pax.
It was great. The group celebrated an anniversary of 50 years of one of the clients.
They are so happy and definitely they would like to come again.
Everything was very professional. From the beginning and answers to all our questions and special requests and planning of birthday decorations on the island and special dinner for Christmas and so on.
I never heard the word NO or IT IS IMPOSIIBLE. I was very happy to work with the booking team of the boat.
The clients liked the service onboard — all the crew is very polite and client oriented. They really had a great time.
Surely I and my clients will recommend the boat.
Guest Book Comments - Dec 20th-30th charter
What can I say, this was a replacement boat, I was very surprise at the layout and size. The food was amazing, a great variety of dishes. Crew were great: always on hand to assist. Highly recommended.
Just exceptional! I have been on many liveaboards, but nothing comes close to the Safira. Great food, amazing staff and a wonderful cabin. Thank you so much! Best holiday ever.
Just amazing. Great boat, great Captain, great crew. Nothing too much trouble. Cabins awesome. Been on a few liveaboard and by far this is the best. I’m fussy with food but this time, no issues, amazing food. Big thank you for an amazing trip!!
Everything was amazing. Safira was a replacement boat and was brilliant, large, well fitted out with really friendly crew and fabulous food – the best I’ve ever had on a dive charter. Dive guides were lovely and catered for everyone from very advanced to less experienced ~ Everyone had good diving.
Everything was amazing. The crew were brilliant, always attentive. Cabins were amazing and very large. Always a hot shower. The food was very good and as I don’t eat meat they often cooked fish especially for me! Crew always smiling. Diving was great too. All in all : a five plus experience.
For a replacement boat, firstly they were an exceptional crew and fantastic service. Rooms + Shower: best on any trip so far. Crew were so friendly, plus could not be any more helpful. Food was amazing.
I have had a fantastic experience on the Safira. The staff did not feel like staff. They are friends I will never forget. Service was excellent, rooms + Facilities are beautiful. I wish Coco and his crew all the best for the future.
A really great boat, crew and experience. Nothing was too much trouble. Food was excellent.
Great diving. We would recommend this boat.
Thanks for a great holiday after a weird 2020.
