As usual another brilliant  trip on Sea Spirit with Anne- Marie and Matt.   We had some awesome diving and saw some amazing things. The crew were also very helpful, and the chef fed us so well it will be dieting next week. Thank  you all for making our holiday so memorable.

Definitely a trip to repeat.

We came here to celebrate our 50th birthdays. It was a perfect trip!!!. Every thing that we had hoped for and much much more. Beautiful dives, great dive sites, lots of marine life (sharks, turtles, manta rays, sting rays, whale shark, etc), calm ocean, great night dives. Matt and Ann Marie were experts in the dives and are highly knowledgeable about the marine life (Ann Marie is an expert in Manta Rays). The boat is exactly the right size, and the food was truly amazing and we enjoyed every meal!! We had a great time. It is highly recommended.

Scuba divers on holiday in the Maldives

Shark-o-rama!  We have dived in the Maldives on many occasions in the 20 years and have been on the Sea Sprit a number of times before. This trip certainly rates as one of, if not, the best ever. Travelling from the south back to Male provided some excellent dive sites and an abundance of marine life from large to small critters and some superb shark encounters. There are only a few liveaboards worldwide we would recommend and this is definitely one. Matt and Anne-Marie are fabulous guides and what they do not know about diving in the Maldives is not worth knowing. We will be back.

A trip to remember – it did what it said on the tin!  Some great dives – whale sharks and mantas not to mention hundreds of white tip and grey reef sharks.  Ten different species of sharks spotted.  Some great dive sites – away from the madding crowds.  Some exhilarating currents and great fun high speed drifts.  Our thanks and appreciation to Matt, Anne-Marie and all the crew.

A wonderful 2nd trip with Anne-Marie and Matt.  Majestic mantas and sharks galore, some standing on their tails with mouths open being cleaned. Eagle rays flying past and a pink leaf fish – wow! Night dives with snake eels, octopus and sea hares – not to be missed. The crew attended to our every need. I hope to be back again next year on Sea Spirit!

First time in the Maldives, lucky us, we did our trip with Lisa and David, it really was a great adventure. I have learned a lot, I have seen so many beautiful things, and a special thanks to Lisa who was really great when I get scared on a special very sportive dive J

Thanks to the crew also, you guys worked hard to make sure that we always had what we needed!

Well! We liked it so much that we are all ready planning to come back next year.

See you!

I’ve been diving for twenty years and logged over 600 dives, and this has most definitely been the best diving holiday I’ve ever been on. I’ve seen everything I hoped to see (but never dared expect) and more. I’ve felt taken care of, and eaten extremely well (even with my peculiar dietary requirements). Dave and Lisa are definitely two of the best dive guides I’ve ever dived with. Thanks for such a fantastic trip.

If, like me, you have dived from resorts in the Maldives and are thinking about whether a liveaboard would offer ‘enough better’ diving to justify give up the sand and cocktails, the answer is emphatically YES.  I am a very spoiled diver and put this trip right up there with the Galapagos.  Thanks to Dave & Lisa for reating a great atmosphere and dropping us on top of all the fish!

Absolutley amazing trip my first trip to Maldives. Came with Ian on back to back Liveboard Trips.  The 2nd being with Dave and Lisa being the Best trip  Definitely  a trip to   remember.  Ian has been to the Maldives many time before and has been fortunate enough to have had Dave and Lisa as his guides, Have to say unfortunately for Ian the dvd he brought back on one of the trips made me want  to learn to Dive, and now I got to do it for myself.  I hope we will come back to the Maldives and when we book we will be making sure we are on whichever boat Dave & Lisa are running

Sea Spirit SS459 8 Feb 2015 12 days

So this was our 2nd holiday of a life time, following a previous trip on Sea Spirit 3 years ago. This was an extended trip down to the far south atolls. To try and sum it up in a short paragraph is hard so this is a snap shot.  The beauty of the coral and the quality of the reefs did not disappoint. Fast drifts, a night time wreck dive, hanging on in the current watching the sharks and other large fish in the blue. We seemed to be accompanied by turtles at every point and a welcoming party of dolphins just after we crossed the equator. But, we all are agreed that the beauty of the Mantas, eight at one point dancing an underwater ballet was the highlight of the trip and a memory that will last a lifetime.  Our Heartfelt thanks to the crew for looking after us (increasing our waistlines) and making it a trip of a lifetime.

My husband and I dove with Lisa and Dave in Feb 2015 on a liveaboard in the Maldives. We are fairly inexperienced divers. Our week diving with them was fabulous. We felt very safe and we learned so much. They worked very hard to show us all they could. We saw sharks, manta rays, turtles and a whale shark and so much more that we didn’t know about before. The boat was well managed, food was good and the crew was very helpful. It was a great and very memorable trip.

What a fantastic trip!! My first visit to the Maldives and Lisa, Dave and the crew did us proud.

The diving was superb and we saw so much – Mantas, Grey Reef and White Tip sharks, Nurse Sharks rays of all sorts, turtles, leaf fish, ghost pipe fish….vast amounts of different reef life too….. anemone of the week for me was the Beaded Anemone.

We loved the Sunset Queen and the food was delicious and plentiful, the rooms are comfy and air conditioned.

I would definitely recommend this trip and would love to come back.

A big thank you to Lisa, Dave and the crew for a very memorable diving holiday in the Maldives, it will be a trip that we will fondly remember for some time. The amount of marine life was out of this world, especially the night dive, mantas, sharks, but especially finding a mantas shrimp. The food was delicious and always enough to go around.

Everyone made the trip very easy and comfortable making it even better than expected.

THANK YOU FOR A GREAT HOLIDAY

Finally a whale shark! But even without this the trip was absolutely out of this world. The food was great and the crew did everything they could to make our stay the best it could be – including a good hot cup of cocoa after a night dive. The knowledge that Lisa and Dave had about every single dive site helped made each dive incredible and some of the best we have ever had.

It’s not always that holidays exceed your expectations – but this one did.

Many thanks to all the crew on the Sunset Queen and our dive guides Lisa and Dave.

Another fantastic trip on Sea Spirit. Cruise Directors Anne-Marie and Matt are extremely knowledgeable and professional and always provide the best dives they can. Anne-Marie's Manta Ray knowledge must not be missed! We travelled to the far south and had great shark and manta action including a giant manta and hammerhead as well as fantastic coral and critters. The crew were friendly and helpful as always with wonderful food from Thilak the chef. Luckily we had some good currents so extra finning wore off the calories! For a great diving experience with brilliant staff I would highly recommend Scuba Tours.

Interesting trip, lots of sharks, lots of current.  We had almost every dive site to ourselves.  Boat was as comfortable and well organised as usual, and food was brilliant.  Dhoni  boys did a fantastic job of picking us up even when we weren’t where they expected!

Sunset Queen SN008 18 Jan 2015 7 days
Stew and Chris Proud

What a fantastic week! Dave and Lisa once again have given us a wonderful dive experience. Manta on so many dives and up close too. Many dives with grey reef sharks, I counted 29 at one instant on one dive, and they were not in the distance. Great dive with nurse sharks and stingrays. Snorkelled with 2 whale sharks up close and in with them for quite some time. Dave and Lisa certainly know where the fish live and when they are at home! 

The Sunset Queen is a very comfortable boat, better than the old Sea Queen, much more space and more sea kindly. We like very much the smaller boat with not too many divers and Sunset Queen has just the right balance between size and number of guests. The crew were great, so helpful and always with a smile.

 Great hospitality and nothing is too much trouble for Dave and Lisa. If at all possible we will be back diving with them again in the not too distant future.

Sea Spirit SS457 18 Jan 2015 7 days

What an experience, second time around and I’d love to do a third. Mantas galore, whale sharks too, and every sort of sea life, all well explained and dives really well planned .I even got to name a Manta, having been the one to prove its third sighting. Look out for Rooney!  On board great too, good meals, good accommodation and good company. All round an experience everyone needs in their life, Mantastic is the word.

Thank you so much for making my first trip to the Maldives amazing, and we saw so many mantas!  What a treat.

Fredricka

What a blast.  A week of fantastic diving, great company and delicious curries.  The mantas are unbelievably beautiful and mesmerising.  Should definitely be on everyone’s wish list.  Thank you Anne Marie and Matt.

Terrific  week. This boat has always been great but now with a manta speciality week the ante has been upped. Fun, informative and challenging in parts.

Great people, great food, great diving, well worth the visit

Matt & Penny

What a dream team! Anne-Marie and Matt have done it again on the Manta Special week. We had too many Mantas to count in one go and whales sharks as well! Thank you both.

Jane G

Another fastastic week aboard Sea Spirit. More mantas than expected and a very busy whale shark afternoon. Food and services excellent as always. Look forward to the next time.

Thank you so much, absolutely fantastic trip. Close Encounters is understated. Sharks, Mantas, Sharks & Mantas. Snorkelling with Mantas, then snorkelling with a Whale shark, followed by diving with 3 Whale sharks! Fantastic night dive with the Nurse sharks and so much more. WOW!

We never thought we could see so much on one trip. Not bad for our 1st trip to the Maldives. All the crew work so hard to make the liveaboard such an enjoyable and memorable trip, along with Lisa & Dave’s excellent knowledge and expertise. We will return without a doubt.

Sunset Queen SN006 4 Jan 2015 7 days

Dear Lisa and Dave and the crew of the Sunset Queen,

Thank you Scuba Tours for our third successful trip on one of your boats. As usual we have had a fantastic week of diving; highlights including squadrons of grey sharks, friendly manta encounters along with eagle rays galore. Our third attempt to night-dive with mantas (another no-show!) was compensated for by the night nurse shark, sting ray and giant trevally feeding frenzy. Thanks also to Captain Issey who spotted ‘Hector’ our baby whale shark en route.

We can only recommend the professionalism of the whole operation – all crew included – always smiling and helpful. Thank you and we are sure we will be back.

Dear Dave, Lisa and the Crew,

Thank you so much for creating a trip of a lifetime!  For both divers and non-divers alike, the trip offered excitement, relaxation, delicious food and great company.  The whole staff was safe and professional yet fun at the same time.  As a non-diver, I fully appreciated the outdoor decks and Jacuzzi where I lounged around reading books. I also had some of the best snorkelling I’ve ever experienced, with sharks and rays so close I could touch them, and reef snorkelling that was like swimming in an aquarium!  

My husband loved the diving.  As it was our first visit to the Maldives, everything was seen through fresh eyes.  The variety of marine life was incredible – the huge schools of fish, sharks, mantas, and even the whale shark.  The night dive at the jetty was an adrenaline rush.  I won’t give away why.  Your future guests will have to come see for themselves.
