    Amazing trip Sharkastic, Maldives in February

    We spent a amazing time on the small emperor atollboat. The room is tiny, but very clean and sweet. The crew did a great job and as well the guides. I think one of the best thing is, that the group of guets is small, so very familiar and when we were diving, there are not many others with you. I really can recommend the emperor atoll. They are well organized, we have every day lovely food, the boat was totally clean, we just spent such a good time. We are already planing our next trip with them 😊

    AMAZING WEEK that left nothing to wish for Pelagic Magic, Maldives in June

    Everything was so well organized, relaxed and easy going. The food was almost too much and too good. The crew was really friendly and the diving was great. We had all the flexibility to dive the sites and see the things we wanted to. Although the weather wasn't the best, this was only secondary because everything else was perfect end to end. I was on this trip alone and found that almost all divers were very advanced so it was fun to dive together. Thank you Emperor Atoll and thank you liveaboard.com!

    Outstanding diving, with the most professional and friendly crew The Best of Maldives, Maldives in July

    Breathtaking dives with sharks, rays, mantas, whalesharks. Dive guides that strive to realize divers' dreams, yet safety always first. The most helpful and positive crew that always make your day. A boat designed for real divers, small and comfortable, away from the crowds. Food so delicious words cannot describe.

    Amazing Diving and Small Group made a GREAT experience!! The Best of Maldives, Maldives in July

    The 2 night dives were excellent! The dive guides were very attentive in their explanations and making sure everyone was set for each dive. The food was INCREDIBLE! The dive sites offered a great variety and the small passenger count made it great to get to know everyone.

    Excellent dive sites for big stuffs Sharkastic, Maldives in March

    Excellent dives - saw many sharks (white tip, silver tip, grey reef, nursing), close contact with manta rays and eagle rays, octopus dancing and mating, swam among the fishes and you smell like a fish after some dives. Good boat - small but practical, good air con control, enough space for luggages Friendly crews and guides - professional, supporting all dives, good food provided Cons - can increase dives from 17 to 20 easily, soft drinks not included.
