Awesome Dive trip!

The Crew of Carpe Diem were outstanding in every aspect. The were so capable and took such care of all the divers. They found us every marine animal we hoped to see and were professional but so friendly. They couldn’t do enough to make our vacation the best dive experience I’ve ever had. The boat Is beautiful, well equipped and so luxurious, havlnd the tender to dive from is such a pleasure and the Whale sharks and Mantas were everything I had hoped for. If you looking for an unsurpassed dive experience, go with Carpe Diem and her phenomenal crew!

A Fabulous Dive Crew that kept Murphy's Law at Bay!!

We were returning customers having dived with Carpe Vita 2 years before. Though Carpe Diem lack the luxuries of her sister boat, the dive crew made the difference; a special thanks to Shamoon who was a fantastic happy dive guide and took great care of us underwater and on land. And to Inthi who kept his cool inspite of having to deal with Murphy's Law from a broken engine on the dive dohni to a broken nitrox air compressor. Guys (sorry I cant remember all the names), thank you so so much for trying so hard to make things right as well as the special effort to give us another opportunity to spot a whaleshark even though we missed it the day before. That swim with the whaleshark was truly awesome :) !

Very nice

Took this nice diving trip at the end of the Season, after us the boat went in the harbor. Which means that the weather conditions were far from perfect, unfortunately. However, as it is the Maldives, we still had some very good dives, 60 Minutes with Mantas, Night dive with sharks, warm water even when rain from above. Guides were nice, boat was nice (but there is a reason why normally they replace a lot when not on tour), food was nice. Gear also OK, not the best, not the worst. Recommended. Bonus fact: if you book at the end of any season the prices drop significantly ;-)
