Awesome Boat/Staff and Diving !!!

Wow...So many highlights. Stefan and his staff were great even before the trip started. Great communication ahead of time on little things about the trip. We were picked up promptly at the airport on Tuesday. Great briefings on the boat, typical diving, etc. This was the ONLY boat I've ever been on to actually do a safety drill on evacuating from the lower level. Food was awesome and very healthy. Amo and Neo were great guides and did most of the daily dive briefings. There is some challenging diving in the Maldives at certain sites (current, reef hooks necessary, etc), but the crew made sure we practiced in advance and were ready when we did hit those more advanced sites. Diving in the Maldives ranges from beautiful corals and small stuff like nudibranchs to sharks, turtles and Manta Rays ! I've done multiple liveaboards and this one is the best. The crew went out of their way to make us all feel welcome. Great trip and can't wait to go back ! Hats off to Stefan and all the crew for an awesome week !

The most fun I have had on a drive trip EVER!!!

I am new to HOOK diving and didn't get it until we did the first one. I don't want to do Hook Diving on every dive but it is a fun and different experience. Diving off of a Dhoni boat was great, all you dive things stayed there and didn't take up any space on the living area. this was just a great trip and would recommend AMBA and it crew to anyone. Stephon is a spectacular human and make you feel like you are at home on his boat. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!

Good Value for your money, very nice crew

The shared rooms and bathrooms are spacious compared to other liveaboards I've been on. The crew is very nice, polite, helpful and attentive. The smaller boat, from which we do the diving from, is also spacious and comfortable with bathroom, covered roof, and sundeck. Very good value for your money!
