    Always beyond our best expectations Best of Central Atolls: North Male, South Male, Felidhoo, Ari, Maldives in August

    In our trip in Sachika boat, everything went perfect but the weather. Giacomo and the dive masters were the best: kind, helpful, and very professional. They take care of every small problem with a smile, making us feel at home from the first day The ship is in peak condition, so clean, and taken care off that it looks new. Much better than pictures, where usually is the contrary. Cabin was big and clean, with plenty space and an comfortable individual bathroom, also carefully cleaned. And food, food was amazing. Every meal was a buffet with plenty of choices, although since all were delicious, you usually end up eating much more than anticipated. Overall, when I come back to Maldives, I’ll definitely will be back with Giacomo and his crew. Thank you very much for the best diving week of our lives.

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

    It was a manta week! We absolutely loved the manta point dive as a "check out" dive and being lucky enough to experience more mantas randomly throughout the trip and also the manta extra night dive! That is a must do! The boat is quite nice and comfortable, our suite room was perfect and always cleaned to perfection. We were amazed with how many new things we could tick off our diving bucket list and although the weather was not ideal, was definitely worth the trip! Thanks guys!

    Great liveaboard trip with awesome Sachika, professional Dive masters and friendly crew Best of Central Atolls: North Male, South Male, Felidhoo, Ari, Maldives in December

    We had a great time in Maldives. Diving was great although few days the weather was quite rough and visibility wasn't the best. You can't change the weather but you can still be happy with great people and great diving :-) Our Dive masters Lara, Sameh and Ali were very professional, and always took into account everything and everyone. They were also able to spot all interested things under water. We saw many manta rays, eagle rays, sharks (white tip, black tip, grey reef, nurse), turtles, octopus and other beautiful marine life and corals. Sachika boat is in very good condition and it was extremely comfortable to stay a week on boat. Boat crew were helpful and chef made awesome food every day! We also took Padi AOWD course which was easy to go because we had so many dives, like deep dive, drift dive, night dive, navigation etc. We will definitely recommend Sachika and we'll return to dive in Maldives!

    Amazing Maldives on Sachika Best of Central Atolls: North Male, South Male, Felidhoo, Ari, Maldives in April

    The trip was wonderful. The boat is big and clean and the staff is fantastic. The manager (Giacomo) behave as a co-traveler more than a manager and this creates a friendly atmosphere but never compromising on professionality. The crew is always smiling, frinedly but descrete. The cabin was a bit dark but in any case you don't want to spend much time in the cabin. All other facilities are great. And of course the quality of the dives is superb!

    Wonderful trip with a wonderful team on a wonderful boat. Best of Central Atolls: North Male, South Male, Felidhoo, Ari, Maldives in October

    The selected dive sites were very varied (drift dives, wreck, reefs, thilas, kandus...). The guides know where exactly where the interesting spots are. The underwater life is amazing. Encounters with large pelagics on almost every dive.

    Perfect way to experience the Maldives Into The South: The Magnificent 7 Atolls (Male - Laamu), Maldives in February

    This was the southern atoll trip, which is more challenging with very strong currents. We were able to be in deep open blue water with many large pelagic...non-stop! Oceanic sharks, mantas, whale sharks. The crew was excellent and a big help in the challenging conditions but the dives were totally awesome. Sachika is an amazing boat, with plenty of space, and the rooms were excellent. There is a dongi that follows the boat, so all dive gear is kept on that boat, which makes more room on the main boat. Food was always well prepared, varied, and great tasting. I was eating gluten free and had no problem with all of the choices for every meal. I would highly recommend this boat and would return to the Maldives for the northern atolls next time to be able to see those as well.

    Wow! Words can not describe this destination. Into The South: The Magnificent 7 Atolls (Laamu - Male), Maldives in April

    The highlight of the trip was snorkeling with whale sharks as they came up to the back of the boat, and diving a manta ray cleaning station.

    Loved everything about Sachika! Must go!! Best of Central Atolls: North Male, South Male, Felidhoo, Ari, Maldives in May

    Manta rays, whale shark, reef and nurse sharks. I’d highly recommend! I’ll be booking again for next year soon! My only complaint was the weather—as I ended up in rainy season but nothing that could be changed.
