A phenomenal time with a great crew on a very nice boat

Where to begin? The manta rays, the whale shark, the large number of nurse sharks on the night dive, or the drift dive with dozens of different sharks; otherwise it would be the fantastic food and great crew. The dive guides were all top notch and I'd love to dive with them again.

It was fantastic

The whole trip was a highlight for me 😎. When it comes to the crew, I think you get very quickly, that their bosses must do very well with them. Even if they have hard work to do, there is always a very good spirit. When it comes to the food, it was very tasty. I think it says all that I didn’t hear one single complaint from anybody of the other guests. That brings me straight to the next point: we were an absolutely bunch of people for that week. At the end, a few words to diving: It was very well organized and I always felt very secure. There were not more than 5 or 6 guests in group. The special dives with the mantas and with the nurse sharks will from now on count to my most memorable dives in my whole diving career.

a fantastic journey

This boat is great, the crews are very nice. The room we stayed in is large and comfortable, and the guest room cleaned every day. The post-diving perch is relaxing. What I like the most is the briefing before each dive, which gives us a lot of knowledge about the Maldives marine. The dive guide is very professional and takes good care of every member of the group. Although it was a pity not to see a whale shark, the manta trip, the nurse shark storm, and the ray storm worth the price of admission. The food on the ship is also very good. Whether it is three meals or snacks, they are all delivered at the right time to comfort our stomachs. I have made an appointment with my friends to return to this ship next year and continue the deepsouth. I hope to see those old friends.
