Pretty boat, great crew, good food

The crew was very attentive to the dive prep, helping with getting gear on and off. Makes a big difference with the frequency of diving. Food was varied with local flavors as well as western cuisine. The boat was very clean and warm with wood furniture, and created a great laid back environment to relax between diving. The deep south route unfortunately did not give us as great diving as the rest of the experience

Wonderful and unforgettable

My experience with Adora was fantastic. We saw several species of sharks, snorkeled with two (!) whale sharks at night, one more whale shark the day after, several mantas at night and two more the day after at their cleaning station. Plus eagle and sting rays, big turtle, octopus, and so on. The diving was very beautiful and our guides very professional. The staff both for the diving and in the boat was extremely friendly, kind, funny. They really made the experience even more enjoyable. The boat itself is great, spacious and cozy, huge rooms and everything well functioning. Big thanks to Deko, Ismail and the rest of the team!

Great liveaboard experience with amazing dives, crew and top class comfort

Other than the amazing Manta night dive, channel dives with sharks and all the beautiful pinnacle dives and marine life, we got lucky and only 6 divers onboarded! No corners were cut and we received same service (if not better) than a full boat. We all got our own cabin and enjoyed a great time with a very relaxed and friendly crew who went above and beyond to make our experience unforgettable. BBQ dinner at picnic beach was a blast and everyone had a great time! Thanks to boat manager Deko, guides Aku and Musa. Abu, Ali and the rest of the crew for a great operation.

Wonderful diving, beautiful boat, awesome crew

This was our first longish liveaboard and it was an unforgettable experience! We went in May so the sea was a bit rough but the crew made it as safe and comfortable as possible for us. We saw whale sharks, mantas, so many rays, reef sharks...couldn't ask for more.

Tolle Safari mit artenreicher Unterwasserwelt

Sehr komfortables Boot mit einer aufmerksamen Crew (beim Tauchen sowie auf dem Schiff). Wir hatten das Glück, dass das Schiff nur zur Hälfte gebucht war, jedoch hätte sich ein volles Schiff durch die Weitläufigkeit auch nicht eng angefühlt. Top ausgestattes Dhoni, auf dem das Tauchequipment die Safari über verbleiben konnte. Sehr großzügige Kabinen und neben den drei Tauchgängen/Tag auch genug Zeit zum Entspannen. Das Essen war sehr abwechslungsreich, üppig und lecker. Getränke (außer Wasser) standen jederzeit zum Kauf zur Verfügung. Ausführliche Briefings vor jedem Tauchgang mit einer maximalen Fahrdauer von 20 Minuten mit dem Dhoni zum Tauchplatz. Manchmal wurde die Strömung falsch eingeschätzt, was in einem leicht abgewandelten Tauchgang (gegenüber dem Briefing) resultierte. Die Dive Guides geben sich die größte Mühe, auf jede Menge Unterwasserlebewesen aufmerksam zu machen, sodass der Tauchgang sehr kurzweilig ist. Großfische wie Mantas, Riffhaie, Rochen sowie Schildkröten waren so gut wie immer dabei. Ein Riffhaken ist von Vorteil, kann aber auch an Bord erworben werden. Zusammenfassend eine tolle zehntägige Safari mit neuen Freunden und jeder Menge Eindrücken.

As good as the Maldives get

As already mentioned, the crew is fantastic. Every single person is helpful and up for a joke, making this a fairly familial experience that feels honest.

Good value for money and several new friends

Everything was correct in general. The best: new friends, nice dives, good food, good boat. The worst: we lost two days in the boat in Male. The first waiting for the guests to arrive (we were proposed to be in the airport at 7am on August 1st and the departure from Male's harbor was on August 2nd at 7am) and the last when we arrived back to Male. So almost 48 hours just waiting in the boat without any dive :( Except water all the drinks were paid, including beers and soft drinks.
