Fantastic liveaboard trip in Maldives

We dove with a small group even with 15 passangers aboard, Lamont is a skilled dive master and she did a great job instructing us to gain our advanced open water certificate. The entire staff was friendly, the variety of food was great. Simone gave 2 interesting presentations about shark identification and Manta Rays. So when we spotted each creature underwater, those facts made the dive that much better.

Lovely Holiday on the Theia

Accommodations: This boat was ROOMY. Lots of space to hang out, read, drink wine, access wifi. Meals were taken at 2 large tables. Speaking of - meals were Delicious! The food was really good and there were 3 meals/day, occasional post-dive snacks, and cookies available anytime. Diving - I’m a newer diver, so to me the diving was spectacular. Over the course of the week we saw dozens of mantas, schools of nurse sharks, a ton of morays and a handful of sea turtles. There were also some black velvet snails and too many fish to mention. Also worth noting we saw a guitar fish, a leaf fish, and some boxing shrimp. Staff - our dive master was kind and patient, which I appreciated as a less-experienced diver. The staff on the ship were also very kind and accommodating and made the whole experience very comfortable. Most of the divers / staff were French-speaking, but they translated everything to English for us which was much appreciated!

Done more than 40-50 live on boards over 25yrs. One of the best personalised service from Simone, the Crusie Manager, and her team. Caring on boat, safety on dives, chef, service crew, captain, dive masters, are all professionals and gave their best to us. They always take initiatives to solve our problems, before we even ask. Honest; if there is anything they can't provide, they will tell us out front. The staffs and Simone takes the extra mile to provide their best to us, showing they care. Great navigation from Captain, dive masters are experienced and responsible. Giving more space and freedom to experience divers, and watch over the more junior divers.

We loved the variety of divespots, which together gave us an all round experience of large and small life on the reefs. The crew was great, especially the guides, and were flexible go accommodate various requests we had. It was a week our family will remember for ever.

Good diving, friendly crew

We had loads of manta encounters, including a night dive with mantas cruising over our heads. No whale shark on this trip, so fingers crossed for next time.

Great boat, great crew, great week

We had a great week! Beginning with the beautiful boat and the outstanding crew (boat, dhoni and guides) the really good atmosphere between the guests and of course the diving! We were shown the best of “the north” with lots of mantas and beautiful dive sites. We will definitely come back aboard Theia!

Great diving trip

The diving guides worked hard to fulfill our expectations. The briefings were comprehensive and dives were well organised. The diving dhoni was spacious, comfortable and well organised. All the staff of Theia was friendly and helpfull. The food was excellent and plentifull. The cabin and bathroom was clean and comfortable. This was one of the best liveboard trip I have taken part in. I loved the idea of internal rails and big pegs to dry clothes and towels.
