    Recommended for

    locations, instructor experience, great room

    Best diving holiday ever. Classic Central - 7 Nights, Maldives in August

    Every dive we saw sharks. Whale shark, Mantas, rays & turtles. Alimatha Island jetty - night dive with 100 + nurse sharks, jacks and rays. Great beach BBQ. The boat offered great relaxation areas.

    Recommended for

    Great dive sites.Great divemasters and crew. Very comfortable boat.

    Wonderful experience, I hope to do it again some day... Classic Central - 7 Nights, Maldives in July

    The nightdive with then sharks and rays; the bbq on the eiland, diving around South Ari Atoll; the manta ray coming in the evening to our boat; the amazing crew, who was always ready to fullfill any wishes; diving in the currents and seeing lots of sharks...and much more. The price made it possible for me to join; it is about the maximum I can afford...

    Recommended for

    Diving, very nice friendly crew with good service, and the boat and cabin comfort (including the nice hot shower).
