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.

i've realy appreciated our dive guide Bocadi, dives were awesome with him

The manta's site were awesome. Neigel, the photograph on the BF 1, did a great job with his pictures and videos. A lot of confortable space on the Blue Force one. Only one small negative point, the food was always cold, they should add warmers on the service table

Blue Force One left me with fond, lasting impressions of Maldives

Every effort was made to ensure guests had a great time -- down to the route planning to avoid crowds, daily highlights, education on marine life and service attentiveness.

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.

Amazing Diving Experience

Saw a whale shark while snorkeling twice and then when diving down below. Saw 5 mantas in one cleaning station. Nurse shark feeding frenzy at night with tens and tens of them bumping into you was thrilling

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.
