    Maldives Best of Central Atolls: North Male, South Male, Felidhoo, Ari, Maldives in March

    We were upgraded to the Sachika from the Moonima, both very lovely boats Sachika being the larger of the two with space for more guests. Diving the best sites in central Maldives and seeing Manta rays. Endless sun, perfect facilities and service on the boat.

    Lovely private week! Best of Central Atolls: North Male, South Male, Felidhoo, Ari, Maldives in October

    Since we have booked the first week of the season it was only us and another couple on board (usually the boat accommodates 16pax). We enjoyed our semi private week and the atmosphere on the boat was great. Big thanks to Alessio and Big Ali for amazing diving as well as all the other staff on board who were extremely attentive and helpful throughout the week. We will be looking to returning shortly.

    Everything was so nice, I loved dive spots, the big stuff underwater, the way the crew treated us, very friendly... I only have one bad thing, and thats the crazy noise of the AC in the room.

    Fantastic trip and seen everything I'd hoped to see including Manta Rays, Whale Shark and lots of turtles. Best of Central Atolls: North Male, South Male, Felidhoo, Ari, Maldives in April

    Highlights were having a BBQ on a desert island, seeing the megafauna I'd never seen before whilst diving including numerous Manta Rays and a Whale Shark other highlights included being able to enjoy free time on the sand banks whilst having great service from the staff. Xico,the captain, Rico, Norwin and Ale made me feel at home and welcome throughout my stay. The Dhongy staff were also great at helping out before and after a dive and very knowledgeable and attentive to everyone's needs. Overall it was a fabulous experience for my first liveaboard and I would not hesitate to to it all over again in the future.

    Overall one of the greatest experiences I have had. Best of Central Atolls: North Male, South Male, Felidhoo, Ari, Maldives in April

    I enjoy the diving, the learning, the experience. It was amazing to get to see whale shark, sharks, mantas, color fish, corals, tourtles, everything. It was nice to rest during the evenings just observing the ocean, and share with others in the boat. We had a great time during our breaks also. It was much more that what I expected. I went alone and I met a group of amazing Italian people (they were coming together). I strongly recommend to live a liveaboard trip
