BLUE O TWO
This company transformed the liveaboard market when it launched in the Red Sea in 2003.
Blue O Two delivered a new level of attention to detail, from its fixtures to safety protocol. Starting the moment a guest first calls, Blue O Two offers a higher level of customer service from its phone associates, nearly all of whom are divers.
On board, that next-level service can be seen in the staff, which includes a pastry chef and massage therapist on most vessels.
Then consider that most boats are technical diving and rebreather friendly. Morning beverages are delivered to your cabin. Valet wash-and-dry gear service is offered at the end of every trip. Other bonus extras: This fleet is one of a select few permitted to regularly offer 10-day charters, as opposed to seven days, in the Galapagos.
Thanks to this commitment to detail and service, the fleet, operating 15 vessels in as many destinations worldwide, books up far in advance—and this is especially true of the Siren vessels serving Indonesia, Palau and the Philippines. The company books more than 10,000 customers per year, many of whom turn into return guests, hooked on the Blue O Two experience.
