Better then expected

On the trip we saw everything you can see in Maldives: 3 whale sharks, 30 manta rays, schools of white , black tip sharks, grey reef sharks, tiger shark, guitar shark, school of spinner sharks, giant hammerhead. The crew took us on the best dive sites, and almost everywhere we were the only boat. Staff was kind and they did everything for us. The room was very comfortable. The only thing I would change is about food. I would like to have more local food and fish dishes and less Eurpean. Otherwise 10/10 Will come back
