    Great liveaboard, awesome crew, really good diving South to Thaa Atoll, Maldives in October

    We booked a 11 day trip on MV Eco Blue in October 2017. Everything was well planned and organized. Still the route the boat and the choice of dive sites was handled very flexible due to weather conditions and wishes of the divers. We appreciated that very much because it gave us the chance to focus on the marine life we wanted to see the most. In our trip we saw plenty mantas, two whale sharks and many reef sharks as well as turtles. We can recommend diving in the Maldives in general and especially on the MV Eco Blue. The two guides made really a good job above and under water with organizing everything, showing us the marine life and helping wherever possible. The boat was perfectly managed by Alex who tried to meet all of our specific wishes. The food on the boat was very good. It was a mixture of western and Asian food. The crew tried to meet all of the specific wishes as well. They made extra food for us because we are vegetarian and tried to catch the desired fish for some of the other guests. All in all we had a great experience on the Eco Blue and could see all of the marine life we wished to see. We can especially recommend this boat and we are considering to book another tour on MV Eco Blue in the atolls at the south of the Maldives.

    Unforgettable in every way! South to Thaa Atoll, Maldives in January

    First and foremost I developed new diving skills and awareness of how to deal with strong and conflicting currents, how to use hook as an aid for underwater photography. Made new friendships with mantas, eagle rays, turtles, sharks and dolphins. Live on the boat was easy and comfortable. The diving company provided me with fantastic replacement equipment to replace my broken items and make my diving pleasurable and comfortable. I will return!

    The best liveaboard in the Maldives! South to Thaa Atoll, Maldives in February

    This was by far the best liveaboard and dive holiday I've ever been on (previously been on Leo in the Maldives and another liveaboard in the Philippines, and also diving in Indonesia, Oman, Sicily, and Iceland). The main reason for this was definitely the incredible atmosphere created by all the staff, who were so friendly and made it such a wonderful week! The boat itself is very comfortable, the food is great, and the dives were spectacular. The cabins on lower deck are beautiful wooden rooms, with powerful showers that always have hot water. The bed is made up several times a day, and the air con keeps the room cool. The food is really tasty and there is lots of it, and it is served on the table, instead of buffet style, which is much nicer. There are 3 shaded sun decks with loungers and bean bags, and there is always loads of chilled filtered water to drink. The dive tender is really large and the boat staff are so helpful - they always helped me carry my tank in and out of the boat since I had a back operation. The dives themselves were brilliant, and the briefings were always thorough and well explained. The dive guides are great - ours was Shamoon, and he was amazing! Always so friendly, fun, and helpful. The GM, Alex, was on the boat the week we were there and he was so kind, friendly, and fun! Some other amazing experiences were drinking from coconuts on a beach while listening to music with the staff and guests. Snorkelling at the back of the boat with a whale shark and dolphins who stayed all night and who we had to ourselves! Watching a pod of pilot whales from the boat - the captain followed them for us for half an hour so we could get a better look! This was one of the best holidays I've been on, and I will definitely be booking Eco Blue next time I'm in the Maldives! It surpassed my expectations on every count. Thank you so much!

    Fun to dive! South to Thaa Atoll, Maldives in February

    Awesome dive experience with awesome guides, crews and food! All three dive guides are very friendly, well experienced and humorous. Crews are also very friendly and well serving. Foods they prepare was also top notch in my three times of live-aboard experience. No regrets by choosing Eco Blue for diving, fun to dive!

    Great Fun and Great Dives South to Thaa Atoll, Maldives in February

    We chose this safari with an eye on the budget too, which left us some concern about the quality we were going to find. Our fears proved totally wrong: the boat was beautiful and clean, the crew was efficient and very friendly and the food was more than satisfactory. Most important: diving was great. The diving places and time were well selected and the guides were nice, competent and careful. My only recommendation is to propose something alternative to Alimatha for the night dive... the shark festival is funny, but I find it too much of a passive experience and too many divers down there...

    It was a great bucket list experience. Best of Maldives South, Maldives in March

    Highlight of the trip was the diving. The Dive masters were great and let us create great memories like crossing the equator and becoming 'shellbacks'. When they found out we were sitting at 99 dives and they decided to scheduled a night dive on the last day to get us to a 100 dives. That night the crew toasted our 100th dive. Great liveaboard experience.
