What do you like about land based scuba trips? What do you like about live aboard dive trips?
Do you have a preference?
I've only been on one live aboard, so don't think that's quite enough experience to say I prefer one or the other, but there were a few big differences.
(1) I had really bad sea-sickness (on top of being sick) when I experienced my first live aboard. Despite that, it's still one of my top experiences.
(2) No wi-fi on the live aboard. I liked this and really loved the feeling of being distanced from the connected world and would love to do it again.
That being said, I loooove diving from land-based destinations, too, as long as the diving is good! 😉
I had both experience in Maldives. Liveaboard is for exciting, fun and everyday you diving, diving and diving (up to 4 dives per day). The boat was luxury 5* with a great service and food. Definitely recommend!
