    Great diving and fun trip Classic Maldives, Maldives in October

    It was our first liveaboard experience and it was great. The rooms were nice and comfortable, foods was great with good variety, the crew was fun and helpful also. Definitely an excellent experience for first timers and we will for sure recommend to our friends.

    Fantastic Maldives Experience Classic Maldives, Maldives in May

    An amazing all round experience! The dive guides and boat crew really made this trip come alive. The dive staff were experienced, friendly and really knew the best spots and times to dive. We saw Reef sharks, Manta Rays, Morays, Turtles, Eagle Rays, Lion fish, Dolphins, Nurse Sharks and many beautiful coral gardens. The boat staff really went out of their way to anticipate our needs and accommodate dietary requirements for meals. The boat and cabins are spacious and there's plenty of places to chill out in the sun (or shade). Our only disappointment was that the hot tub on the top deck had broken down... But really not that big a problem given the gorgeous 31 deg water!

    a wonder-filled trip Classic Maldives, Maldives in October

    Diving from liveaboard used to be hectic but not on this is. The balance of diving and chilling was just right. Every dive was not without some delights (more on pelagics and sometimes macro) and so are the meals. Hard to come by was there were good companies on board and I got the cabin to myself when I thought I will be sharing with a stranger. All in all it was a great trip!
