Orca M7, March 2023

Enjoyed most of the dives, crew was friendly and food good. Quite disappointed that spent 3 nights in port of Male, including the last 2 nights when thought we weren't returning until Saturday morning. Did not get to dive about half of the sites listed in the itinerary esp northern Ari. Repeat dove several sites (wanted more variety), did not step foot on any beach or atoll, did not get to do the barbeque, only three guides for 21 divers

Increïble, expectativas superadas!!

La atención recibida por parte de la tripulación super atentos, ayudandote en todo momento, facilidad y comodidad excelente. Los guias de buceo muy professionales y con seguridad en todo momento. Las prestaciones del barco son ideales, el descanso y la comida requisitos. Era mi primer vida a bordo y nada negativo. Una experiencia totalmente recomendada con Orca M7. Gracias por todo compañeros!
