A fabulous two day live-aboard experience, allowing for seven amazing dives. Excellent attentive and safety conscious crew (tech diver friendly), very homely twin-hulled boat from which to enjoy the Poor Knights, and delicious meals and snacks.

Just had a weekend with Yukon Dive, diving the Poor Knights. The staff were fantastic, really knowledgeable about the sites. The boat was spacious, food tasty, and weather couldn't have been better. Can't wait for my next trip back north again!
