Outstanding diving

Great trip! The diving was fantastic particularly for diving with larger species ie whale sharks, mantas and a variety of shark species. The boat was very clean and tidy and the cocktails in the evening were great :-) I was fortunate with a great group of other divers. It wasn't a "cheap" holiday by a long shot (100% inevitable with the Maldives) but the outstanding diving I had was totally worth it. Im already wanting to go back.... I would definitely recommend this boat to others

Great trip!

We've seen all the animals we wanted to see and more, from mantis shrimp through dolphins and mantas to whale sharks. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They were experienced and accommodating. The boat is owned by a German company. All guests other than me and my partner were German or German speaking Swiss. All briefings and announcement were in English.

Great experience

The whole team of Moonima is very friendly and make everything for you to have a great experience. Special compliments to the chef, every day he prepared something different, but always delicious with lots of healthy options. The divemasters are also great, they know the sites very well and make briefings thorough and clear. The cruise manager adjusted our route depending on the weather but also to make diving more diverse and maximise chances of seeing mantas and sharks. The boat and cabins are in good condition, however in my cabin I had a problem with insect infestation. Hopefully they can solve it as it is rather unpleasant finding cockroaches and other insects everywhere.
