Our trip was wonderful. Alex went above and beyond to ensure our vacation was excellent. Dive Travel Asia was always available and helpful even when non diving related. I will definately be back when I decide to do Tech certs. The one on one approach is the best available. Thanks again for everything, Josh & Britt Kay

I had a Similan Live aboard through Dive Travel Asia. The trip was amazing & comfortable. It perfectly met my requirements. I unfortunately couldn't go diving with Alex though, he & his wife treated me very well while I was in Phuket. I hope I can go diving with him next time.
