Alright I need some info. I am looking into my first liveaboard and don’t want to spend a fortune. Anyone have any suggestions and reviews on which one I should look into?

It would help to know where you want to dive!

For the Florida Key’s, Dry Tortugas I would use spreeexpeditions.com/ cheaper than a dayboat, meals and hotel in the Key’s plus more diving. Not a luxury boat, this is bunkbeds, for more privacy get all of the women to take over one of the rooms.

Blackbeards is a sailboat with bunkbeds, think camping at sea but this is the cheapest way to see the Bahamas

Then you go up in price but get a room and head of your own :) Aggressor/Dancer aggressor.com/ run good boats for the most part. If you do go on them don’t mention the Belize thing, the crew isn’t allowed to talk about it.

For the west coast there is nautilusexplorer.com/ going from Canada to Mexico

The Nai’a naia.com.fj/ in Fiji is the best I’ve been on but also the most expensive per day.

I heard that the black beard was great they have two other ships as well I’m not one to spend all the extra money when they dive all the same places that’s what I’m there for but if luxury is what you like the other two will be just as great, enjoy your dive hope to here about it ,
