Agent Liveaboard on Malaysia

The Malaysian Layang Layang trips are very special indeed and only a few liveaboards are privileged enough to offer dive trips here. It is one of the few places on earth where you will not see another dive boat for miles, the only crowds you will see are schools of Hammer Head Sharks and Barracuda. The perfect Liveaboard Diving destination.
