This was a very fun experience, the set is amazing, well designed, and visually appealing! The only thing I felt was lacking was a way to fix the divers to the ground. Because of their flippers, they tend to skate away or fall pretty easily. The fact that the set is in support of National Geographic is also a very positive aspect that made the set even more enjoyable.

Recommendation: no 70 / 100 by Tom

Sadly, I do not enjoy the Ocean Exploration Base (60265). After last year's Lunar Space Station, this set really falls flat. It lacks a sense of completion and a lot of detail. The set is also expensive for what you get. The brick count is low, and the build time is not proportional to the price.
