Completely forgettable trip to the Maldives

There were no highlights. We saw 2 Manta, 3 eagle rays, no sharks . Granted we ran into bad weather but there are real issues on this boat. The Captain completely ignored the passengers and requests we submitted were not addressed. We were "supposed" to get night dives and a beach excursion...neither of those happened.. We asked the crew -- their response was "depends on the weather" but they never came back to us and explained why they were not going to do those axtivities. We were on this boat for 10 days and we did have good weather on some days The crew did not interact with the guests. I gave diving 2 stars as the viz was horrible. While my guide did his best all of the guests had questions about some of site selections. the dive guides checked the conditions at the start of each dive ..and then came back and had us jump in to 5 -10 ft viz instead of finding a new spot on a couple of occassions All of the 'guests' were kind and courteous but on our last night when we settled our bills/ tipped the crew the captain did not even acknowledge us /say thank you as he left the boat to go into town Worst liveaboard i have ever been on ..and have been on several

Unforgetable experience in the Maldives

Great dive sites where we were fortunate enough to see just about everything we hoped for, including an unforgettable night feed of manta rays. They split us into three groups, each with a local dive guide. Most brought their own scuba equipment, but the crew was able to assist with equipment malfunctions and other needed items for the trip. Small touches the crew did were very appreciated - including helping us celebrate Christmas with a special dinner and a great beach BBQ. I would definitely recommend!
