I'm PADI Rescue Diver with 200+ dives and my wife is PADI Advanced with 100+ dives! We have our own wetsuits/BCDs/Regs/masks & fins ! We'd like to do 4 days with 2 dives per day on Nitrox if possible ? Regards Clive & Linda Yarwood

Hi, Has anyone done the 4 day liveaboard? I noted for some of the trips on the first and/or last day you are transported to the liveaboard by another boat- a boat that may have day trippers and is much more crowded. Is this true on the 4 day trip?
