How do I select the right liveaboard diving boat?

Selecting a Live-Aboard Cruise

The best live-aboard dive boat is probably not the biggest, nor the vessel that carries the most passengers. Look for a company and a vessel with a proven track record. A scuba dive liveaboard boat that takes only 12 divers will probably offer better scuba diving experiences than one attempting to take 20 or 24 scuba divers. You want creature comforts while onboard, but no crowding when you hit the water. Good examples of quality liveaboards may be found with Aggressor Fleet, Peter Hughes Diving, M/V Nimrod Explorer in Australia, M/V Nai'a in Fiji, and many others.
