We had high expectations, and Blueforce exceeded them by a mile

We saw unbelievable marine life...everything we could have possibly wished to see. The crew was fantastic, they even had an onboard videographer! The boat itself is stunning...we never wanted to get off!

Fabulous first time experience on a liveaboard.

The diving was amazing but also meeting the great like minded people who joined us on the trip. Seeing the Maldives from a very different perspective was lovely. The only negatives were the mattress was very hard in our cabin and spending the first day in harbour and then arriving back in the harbour mid morning on the last day we just sat around feeling like we were in a limbo?

First liveaboard...definitely won't be the last!

Without a doubt, the diving experiences were the best ever! Night dives with manta rays and nurse sharks.... and so much underwater life in general! Our dive guides worked hard to get us to see as much as possible and the crew were always friendly and helpful. On board was great too. Relaxing in the tub or on the loungers between dives was a treat, as were the super comfy sofas! The food was excellent - such a great spread every meal time! Thoroughly enjoyed the week. Very sad that it's now over!

Most amazing liveabord experience ever

Best liveaboard yacht ever, Feels like a millionnaire lifestyle, magnificient yacht, two jaccuzies outside ( a beer in the jaccuzi in the front at sunset, priceless), nice bar area, rooms are large and confortable, especially the Master Suite we had, awesome sea view with large windows, big jaccuzi in the room. The diving boat that follows the yatch is large, very convenient, nicely designed, built-in Nitrox compressor, all the dives were on Nitrox, Large cylinders availlable at extra 35$ for the week, well worth the investment, made a big difference for me and everyone who took it, since there is a lot of current and deep dives, you want to make the most of your bottom time, this those tanks all the dives were 50 min and more.My wife can breath 2 hours with a small tank, but me, eh, am a big guy... The bar was well stocked, plenty beer, wine, gin, and anything you want them to keep in the bar if you ask them in advance. Keep in mind this is the Maldives, so it is very difficult to get alcohol. Price for the bar was decent, and you buy a whole bottle for the week, makes it cheaper in the end. Free Internet is avaialble on the ship, but everyone is on it, so it gets very slow or hard to connect. Better you get your own SIM card with 15G data package, then create your own network for all your computers and phones. Ask the guide the first day at the time of boarding, they can get one for you, cost only 20$ if I remember correctly. We still had 5Gb left on the card at the end of the week. Water and coffee is free unlimited, good idea to bring some powder juice with you to make your own mix. Great pre-dive debriefs, and awesome dives. Awesome video and pictures from the on-board cameraman, free copy on USB stick at the end of the trip. Bring a spare USB stick in case they run out, and bring some case for the shopping on the island, and for the crew tips at the end. Good to bring a bluetooth speaker, very convenient! So, all in all, best diving experience ever, already planning our next liveabord, and this is the one we will compare with, but it will be hard to find anything even close to it. What an amazing trip this was!!

This was a great diving holiday in the maledives

For me the highlight was to see a whaleshark even though by snorkeling. The Trips to the island was very nice, had such a great and funny time. Crew was awesome. Food was also great. Our Cabin was beautiful, comfortable and big! Even though the view under water wasn´t great we had a great time with diving and saw a lot of sharks, mantas....
