Great experience

Very professional diving instructors especially Francesca who took great care of us. Food was also very good and fresh fish was served regularly, crew very helpful and outgoing. Great diving experience, a lot of manta rays, sharks and turtles and many other species. Liveaboard experience is superb.

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.

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!

Excellent and knowledgable diving guides in a secure and very comfortable boat with very good food

The dives in itself under the guidance of Hassan and Satho. The waleshark and the Manta experience. The relaxed time on board between dives and very good meals. The very personal treatment by Hassan and his whole crew. We can very much recommend to book a trip on the Theia.

great (experienced) diving

Theia is spacious and well equiped. Very friendly staff, from boat guys to diving guides. love the concept of the dhoni as separate dive boat. great variety in dives and fauna/flora: from nudies and crustaceans to manta ray and grey or white tip reef sharks and nurse sharks ! due to surges and rip currents i wouldn't recommend this trip to new divers: you need to (manage your) dive independently, so best to first build experience and confidence in calmer waters.

Fabulous trip to one of the most beautiful places in the world! The diving was beyond compare, the crew of the Theia did everything possible to meet the needs' of their guests, and the scenery both topside and underwater were like a fantasy come to life. If you're considering Theia, do it, you won't be sorry.

Extremely comfortable dive boat with great diving

I really enjoyed the night we saw mantas and sharks off the back of the boat as they came to the surface attracted by the light. I also really enjoyed the beach BBQ - the staff put a lot of work into making that enjoyable for us. The diving was really great - I'd been waiting 8 years to see a manta ray and I got to see plenty on a crowd pleasing dive with tons of mantas and sharks. The above water scenery was great too! .

Recommended for
The best 3 things were the size and spaciousness of the boat, the extremely comfortable dive dhoni and the diving (particularly the manta rays).
