Great diving and sailing

This was a really great trip. Crew was totally competent, well-organized, kind and keen to serve. Dive crew, both above and below water, were very on top of our safety. Diving was spectacular. Food was far superior to what we usually get while diving: lots of fresh vegetables. We enjoyed seeing rays and sharks as well as beautiful smaller fish. Activities were well-organized. This was our first liveaboard, and I think we started at the top.

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?

Everything is amazing!! I can’t describe by words, just book and aboard! -Briefing & Diving Detailed briefing, All the info is covered, they repeate few times for important points, I didn’t have to do additional questions. Crew kindly assist you to wear BCD, fins, entry & pull you up for exit each time. Guide is always earnest to find and attract fishes, yet checking group in good timing ( & paid attention and instruct to my buoyancy from time to time, thank you !!) -Creatures Mantas, Whale shark, Many other sharks, Rays, Various fishes all around you! Manta night diving was amazing! -Room & Space Big comfortable clean room, hot shower with good water pressure. Big relaxing space with A/C in Main deck. 2 Juggzie & deck chairs spaces for sunny and shade. Bar space is enough big and comfortable. -Food Delicious! I didn’t get tired for menu. Yummy sweet fruits everytime. I could order baked, scrumbled or omelette egg for breakfast. I like the way they arrange dishes ( spoon & cups ) by cute form each time different way. -Crew Friendly, Cheerful, Supportive, and always smiling! I felt very welcomed. I booked by solo, but never felt lonesome. Thank you so much to everyone on Blue Force One, I would like to come back again, and absolutely recommended.

Next level liveaboard experience!

We had an amazing trip on the Blue Force One. Diving in the Maldives is genuinely amazing and we saw everything from whale sharks, turtles, manta rays to mantis shrimps and octopi as well as a lot of different fish. The night dives with the manta rays and nurse sharks were magical! The dive guides were great: both under and above water and they never failed to show us amazing things. And as a bonus; they managed to add in a 19th dive to our itinerary! The boat was very comfortable, rooms were big, clean and the hot shower (and jacuzzi!) felt like a real luxury after a long day of diving! The staff was incredibly friendly and they made the experience even more wonderful. They made us feel welcome and right at home! Food was great - with the freshly prepared eggs at breakfast being a personal highlight! All in all, we would wholeheartedly recommend the Blue Force One in the Maldives!

This is the way to go. The boat is amazing, plenty of space to get some alone time yet totally engaging for the entire group. The diving is simply amazing, trying to describe it is like trying to describe being in love, words don’t do it you have to experience it all! Sharks, mantas, whale sharks, turtles, octopi.... the list goes on and on! Bitches and balls dive crew was lead by Hommie a once In a lifetime dive guide. Honestly there is so much more aside from the diving, the food was perfect. The land excursions totally worth the time and always engaging! The dive briefings made you feel totally informed about what your doing that day! Everything is organized so you get more than your money’s worth! Thanks again to everyone on Blue Force One!!

Bad weather condition, but enjoyable liveaboard experience

One day we faced very bad weather like storm and hard to reach the point. However, all guest even enjoyed that situation as "rare experience". Thanks to great participants and staffs who keep safety for us. Other days, we could see many kind of shark including whale shark, nurse shark, and Mantas and rays as usual cruise in Maldives.

The experience on the Blue Force was one of the best in my life

I would like to recommend the Blue Force One to all divers searching for the new adventures and challenges, as of course to the non divers too, since you can do a lot of things as snorkeling, kayaking or just enjoy and relax in jacuzzi. The experience that you live during the stay on the boat, is definitely unforgettable. The dive guides are very professional, so you can enjoy in every single moment and feel very safe in the same time. All the crew is friendly, that gives you the comfortable feeling all the time. The activities apart of diving are cool, so you can enjoy in every single moment. I will definitely return back on the Blue Force One to live again the new experiences and the new challenges.

An amazing week diving with best crew

The underwater world of the Maldives did not disappoint - we had mantas, whale shark and so many sharks. Although the ocean will never promise anything, Blue Force One really went above and beyond to provide us the best possible dives in the route - we did the manta night dive which was madness, and searched long time for the whale shark we finally found. They even attempted to give us a black water dive which would've been exploratory (sadly cancelled due to very bad weather). The crew were all amazing, experienced, friendly and funny (and likes to pull pranks on each other), just great ambiance. The boat is well equiped, comfortable, with very spacious common area and cabins. Overall a great decision to go the Blue Force!

Amazing experience!

My trip got off to a rocky start due to delayed baggage from the airline. Initially I had some difficulty getting help from the crew however Nigel was able to arrange a special trip to shore for me to go shopping to pick up the necessities while I waited for my baggage to show up. The crew also provided me free of charge rental gear so I could still complete the dives. From there the trip only got better each day and I soon forgotten the earlier stresses from delayed baggage. Saw many species of Shark, Mantas, turtles, varieties of corals and too many fish to keep track of. Cabins & bathrooms on the boat are quite large compared to other boats and the boat had plenty of space to relax and enjoy the Maldivian sun during surface intervals. Food on board was good and the crew caught fresh fish everyday for dinner.

This trip was truly incredible. It was an expensive choice to go for, but by the end we felt that we had amazing value for money. The diving was exceptional, all the staff went above and beyond to make our week so special, and the boat is gorgeous. There are not enough superlatives to express what a journey it was. Mantas, sharks, rays, whale shark, turtles, everything. A bounty of life to enrich the senses.

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!

I don’t know how we will be able to beat this liveaboard for our next trip

Highlight for us was diving with mantra rays, lots of sharks, and seeing sail fish. On our first night we had a whale shark come up to the boat. We did an afternoon trip to a private island with a BBQ and water sports - we thoroughly enjoyed this. David’s dry humour made the briefings an absolute hoot. And to top it all off, Nigel compiled a video of the week with all of the highlights. It was great to have this included in the price rather than a freelancer trying to sell this at the end of the trip. Fantastic boat, we’re going to struggle to top this one for our next trip!

Wonderful stay

Most of the guests are from Europe, but we had a great time with them and friendly staff. The most remarkable thing is food. They served balanced meal each time such as lots of fresh vegetable, seafood and meat, which had good taste for even Asians. Besides, the room was clean and comfotable with a window and spacious shower room, so we spent the whole week relaxing in the room without sea sickness. The total 17dives were given and each dive gave us precious opportunity to encounter specific creatures we haven’t seen before like a whale shark, manta rays and nurse sharks. I highly recommend to join this tour and believe it’s worth spending your holiday.

Night feeding of sharks

Night dive: a lot of huge nurse-sharks; giant manta rays; whale sharks. Strong current. Bad visibility. The constant concern of the team about me. Lunch on the beach. Storm, pitching, difficult access to the surface, the help of an instructor. The most delicious food I've ever tried. Dry fluffy towels every day; large beds and hot water all week; very clean. The air conditioner was noisy and stopped working, but it's such a trifle. Received a small gift from the crew and the owner of the boat and a touching letter. The team tried to catch for us the sun, not sparing fuel for frequent transitions. A wonderful shopping area at the airport. Unforgettable trip (the fifth on LEO boat) with the best team in the world.

A terrific combination of diving and liveaboard accommodations.

The Blue Force is an excellent boat. It comes with luxury, ample space, nice comfortable cabins, and excellent food. The boat was clean and things were tidy. The diving was very impressive with a well communicated daily dive schedule complete with an in depth briefing. There were plenty of dive masters so that divers could split up into smaller groups. The crew was amazing. They were very helpful and always maintained a professional attitude. This is definitely a do 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!!

Good trip would book same boat again but in another location

Seeing the whale sharks up close, the feeding frenzy by a local fish canning factory of oceanic black tip sharks. Disappointing reef diving as many on board only wanted to see 'big game' and in strong currents. We felt that this was too late in the year to see many species like hammerheads and other large species. We would choose the northern atolls in future.
