Penny enjoying her scuba diving in the Maldives on MV Sea Spirit

We have just spent a lovely week on the Sea Spirit and wanted to say a few words to sum up how it was. This is our first trip on a liveaboard dive boat so we weren't completely sure what to expect.

We have around 50 dives prior to this week. As a slightly nervous diver I was concerned I might not be confident enough to make all the dives on the trip but in the end I went for everyone. 

This was thanks to Anne-MArie and Matt, who really know their stuff - their extensive knowledge of the marine life and their skill as divers made every dive a real treat.  There was a huge amount to see on every dive but the stand outs were the day and the night dives with Mantas which were amazing.

The hospitality on the boat is great and Thilak the chef turned out fantastic meals every day.

We'd like to say thank you to everyone on the crew, to Anne-Marie and Matt and also our fellow guests for making this a fantastic week.

Jocelyn diving the Maldives on MV Sea Spirit

I had a fabulous week on the Sea Spirit and highly recommend this liveaboard!

Anne-Marie and Matt were incredible dive master hosts, with immense knowledge of the marine life in the Maldives and a genuine care for the area.

The trip was relaxed and very enjoyable.

Each dive site had its unique attributes, whether it was Mantas, Rays, Sharks, Nudibranchs, Variety of eels, schools of swarming fish, etc...

And, the night manta dive was absolutely magical!. I will cherish the video for years to come. Thank you!

 

Many thanks, also, to the entire boat crew for their help and fun during the week! They are a fun team and I hope to come back!

Peter scuba diving the Maldives on Mv Sea Queen

As a Novice diver, I approached this trip with some trepidation. Once boarding the Sea Queen and meeting Anne-Marie, Matt and my fellow divers I realised what a laid back environment I was in.

The whole trip was efficiently and professionally organised and became one great experience.

The diving proved to be outstanding with many opportunites to see Manta's and sharks.

I cannot think how it would be possible to improve on this fantastic trip, many thanks to all involved.

This was our first experience on a liveaboard and we are happy to say that we loved it, and will be back for more excellent diving next year.

In just one week we saw more marine life than anywhere else we have dived. All the crew were excellent and the trip was well organised and beyond our expectations.

We will miss the food and the Mantas x

Thank you, Anne-Marie and Matt and whole crew.

We have enjoyed the dive trip as our holiday, we relaxed during this week so much. The best adventure was to watch the Whaleshark and the Manta at night.

We saw so many different fishes and corals. The service on the boat was beautiful.

The meals were delicious and the crew was very careful.

We can recommend this trip without doubt.

First trip to Maldives but not our first live-aboard.

Extremely impressed with the performance of the crew and the friendliness - full service dive/travel support which made it effortless for us.

Best veggie food (not to mention the superlative non-veggie food) on any trip we have ever done - really quite remarkable

Comfortable boat.

Excellent dive guiding and first rate diving.

Tony scuba diving in the Maldives on MV Sea Queen

An amazing experience and wonderful adventure. 

"Close Encounters" truly lives up to the name, an unforgettable trip with a great crew and dive guides for whom nothing was too much trouble. I would advise that anyone considering this holiday has some experience in diving in currents to make the most of it.

Bring a decent camera - you'll certainly make the most of that too!!

Brian scuba diving in the Maldives on MV Sea Queen.

Roger & Lin are great dive guides and onboard hosts. They have a light touch that allows you to dive your own dive while always suggesting the best routes and methods.

Sea Queen may be small but has all the comforts you would hope for.

Shipboard life has been great, not least because of the attentive and caring crew. No report can miss out "Nitrox" the ships lovebird - no that isnt a euphanism!!!

That manta night dive was absolutely stunning.

The Sea Queen is a fantastic boat - everything you need and really comfortable but small enough for a personal, low impact dive experience.

Wonderful food, amazing crew and Lin & Roger made everyone feel at home.

The highlight of the trip was the manta night dive - up close and personal with three mantas by torchlight as they barrel-rolled for plankton.

Patricia scuba diving off MV Sea Queen, the Maldives

Nearly 10 years ago, I had a rather disappointing diving experience in the Maldives and it took me all these years to give the islands another chance.

The trip on Sea Queen changed my opinion of the Maldives as a dive destination.

The crew, Roger & Lin made sure that we had a brilliant time and got some fantastic diving.

All in all it was very fishy including lots of sharks, mantas, mobula, eagle ray, whale shark and many more.

I cant wait to come back for more.

Jason & Anna on board MV Sea Queen, the Maldives

What a FANTASTIC time we had on Sea Queen.

The journey from Far South back to Male was truly exciting and felt nearly exploratory. Packed with exciting dives and wonderful company from Roger and Lin, it didnt feel like the usual holiday.

The boat is very comfortable, the food delicious, (you have a gem of a chef!) the crew were brilliant, friendly an exceptional team and Roger and Lin were incredible cruise directors. They took great measure to make sure we had the best dive conditions possible to be able to see sharks, mantas and everything else.

Roger and Lin are passionate about the underwater world and the briefings were really thorough as were the current checks to make sure we got the best conditions.

The really are an asset to the company and we hope they are still here when we return as we would love to dive with them again!

We are thoroughly impressed with the overal service from beginning to end with Scuba Tours and will continue to use and recommend to fellow divers.

Finally, Rogers video, what a wonderful memento which we will watch again and again, a very talented videographer!

The crew were amazingly efficient and always smiling, offering that extra help, many thanks!

Lin and Roger kept everything on schedule, which I appreciate.

This journey will be talked about to everyone willing to sit and listen.  The perfect blend of casual mood and diver friendly understanding, professional, friendly, competent.

Enjoyed being treated as the advanced divers that everyone on the boat was, (30yrs of diving) yet never assumed that they were not responsible and responsive.

Great trip, we will be back. - Charles & Lyn

 

The boat staff were excellent. Took care of our every need with a smile. Dinners and lunches were delicious.

Great weather, smooth seas and excellent diving. Roger and Lin were the perfect hosts and were very approachable morning, noon and night.

The trip back from the Far South ran like clockwork and we always got 3 dives per day, sometimes 4.

A big well done to the crew and guides. See you next year!

The crew has been first class, nothing too much trouble and always with a smile. Lin and Roger have taken us to interesting dive sites and shown us every courtesy.

Lin, in particular is never off the job but is patient, kind and helpful. They are an excellent pair of guides/hosts and defintely recommend to future guests.

Never been on a Maldives Scuba Tours trip before and was persuaded to come by some previous guests who were also on this tour.

I am so glad I came - it has been a wonderful trip with excellent food, dive guiding and hosting and we saw only one other boat for a single dive in the entire trip.

We rather took it for granted that this would be the norm. Anne-Marie and Matt could not have put themselves out more on our behalf and I would thoroughly recommend a trip on this vessel.

Very enjoyable trip. Highlights for me - 3 Whale Sharks in one hour, in the water with one of them, some nice video shots.

I've waited 32 years of diving to see them and I see 3 in 1 hour, Fantastic!

The manta ray cleaning station, about 20 mantas just slowly going over the cleaning block, another great sight to see.

Catherine enjoying scuba diving in the Maldives on MV Sea Spirit.

Another memorable and fantastic trip with Anne-Marie and Matt & the Sea Spirit Crew to the Central Atolls.

Two of the best night dives ever - feeding mantas, and excited nurse sharks.ray/jacks.

Classic dive sites with beautiful reef fish, barracuda, jacks and exciting channel dives watching cruising sharks - and who could forget the mantas cleaning !

Just the best ever with the best company.

THANKYOU

An excellent trip on Sea Queen.

Great food and company, the diving superb with a lot of variety, we saw lots of very big fish! . Lin & Roger managed the trip well, above water and lead the dives with great enthusiasm.

All the crew were always friendly and helpful.

Thank You.

Thank you for a wonderful trip. 

I realised how great the diving was when I read back my dive log which said "usual fish seen"!

This includes sharks, leaffish, eagle ray and many others.

This was our 3rd trip on Sea Queen and everything was as good as ever.

Thank you very much for making this liveaboard such a wonderful experience for me. 

I thoroughly enjoyed all the dives and it all felt very safe.

You are doing an incredible job! I'll certainly look into getting a nitrox qualification next time and hopefully return soon.

Gillian & Miles enjoying Scuba Diving in the Maldives on MV Sea Spirit

Thank you so much for a great holiday touring the Maldives Atolls. This year was the perfect fusion of a great, professional crew, the vast experience of the dive directors and a lovely group of divers.

This year the dhoni crew really impressed us. We both need all the help we can get when kitting up, or climbing up after a dive. The help was always there, in the form of an ever smiling Teufal.

On Sea Spirit everything ran smoothly, with chef Tilack producing wonderful things from his tiny gallery. 

AnneMarie was such an asset, she gave us mantas and made sure we were in the best locations to appreciate them.

Thanks to all for a super holiday, and thanks for your support back in the UK.

David scuba diving in the Maldives off MV Sea Spirit

Let me thank you and all at Scuba Tours for organising another excellent holiday on Sea Spirit,

Once again, Matt and AnneMarie worked the magic and the diving was exceptional, although sometimes it was difficult to see the Shark action with the Mantas and the Whale Sharks blocking the view.

The boat crew were the best overall team we have ever had in ten years, nothing was too much trouble and they were always on the ball.

Mohammed the caption is one of the best.

Thilak, as ever turns out super food.  Hussein as front of house never stopped and was always ready with a smile.

Phil enjoying top deck on MV Sea Queen

As usual, fantastic experience.

Brilliant diving with lots of mantas, many large burse sharks and rays on the night dive and a whale shark.

Cannot ask for more. Crew as good as ever. Chef high standards yet again, I think I have added a few pounds !

Will be back in September or October.

Maria enjoying the Maldives on MV Sea Queen

I much prefer Sea Queen to the larger boats.  There is a friendly atmosphere on board with meals together on the forward deck.

With only a few divers on this trip there was no risk of divers soup !

The diving highlight was a Miyaru Kandu when we were treated to sharks and eagle rays plus about a dozen marbled stingrays. Excellent crew.

Excellent food - don't lose the chef!

Roger & Lin clearly have their act together. We saw an incredible variety of sea life. Really comfortable accommodation, plenty of hot water and a lovely relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

I was privileged to witness 2 phenomena new to me after over 300 dives in the Maldives - a squadron of mobula ray passing by and 4 metre nurse sharks at close range!

The dhoni crew were impeccable - assistance if required but no more, precise pickups - couldn't have been better.

Good guests, good diving, friendly and helpful crew.

We will be back.

Anne-Mare,Matt and the crew of the Sea Spirit have yet again blown our minds with the most amazing trip.  You can't speak highly enough of the sites we have dived, the sights we have seen and they way our needs have been looked after by this fantastic team.  The Maldives are alive.. and these guys know exactly where to put us to see it all ! Thank you so much, we will be back.

Jean & Neil

 

Some of the best diving we've had and we've been coming to the Maldives for several years.  Not one disappointing dive site all trip and the marine life we've seen has been unbelievable - from Manta rays, sharks and rays to turtles, leaf fish and nudibranchs. We've visited various other diving destinations around the world but keep coming back because its impossible to beat. Great Trip

Having been lucky enough to dive in quite a few locations around the world on all sorts of liveaboards. I can honestly say that the past 12 days on Sea Spirit with Matt and Anne-Marie doing the Central Atolls of the Maldives is the best trip we have done by far.

The variety of the diving is outstanding, with a crew that cant do enough for you, you cant help but have a fantastic trip.  We will defintely be coming back.

Big big thankyou from both of us.

Manta Runway in the Maldives off MV Sea Spirit

An amazing quantity of fish for just 6 days diving, including 3+ sites with multiple mantas, eagle rays, silvertips, grey reefs, white tips, nurse sharks feeding at night, marble rays, whiptail rays, leaf fish, starry dragonets and - wait for it - ghost pipefish!

The night diving with mantas was simply mind blowing.

A huge thanks to Anne-Marie and Matt for a fabulous week... we'll be back..

This has been one of the most memorable weeks of diving I have every had.

The most unforgettable parts of the week involve not only the very obvious mantas but also the tiny ghost pipefish that Anne-Marie found for us.

The crew and directors laid on a superb programme of diving. Mention must also be made of the superb food and drink served throughout the trip and in more than sufficient quantities.

All of the crew are charming and helpful thoughout and Matt and Anne-Marie have been probably the best liveaboard guides we have ever had the pleasure of diving with.

Jonathan enjoying his scuba diving holiday in the Maldives on MV Sea Spirit

After 18 previous stints here in the Maldives, I thought that precious little could/would surprise me.. boy was I wrong!

In just a few days everything that you could hope for had passed by the facemask, from beautiful coral formations to a range of sharks, from enormous schools of fusiliers to feeding Mantas.

I, a big stuff addict, took great pleasure in coming across a juvenile ornate ghost pipefish. The staff have been great as always, with Anne-Marie and Matt being helpful, informative and good humoured. 

The group of divers, from really diverse backgrounds, really gelled and this only helped to enhance the diving experience. Roll on next week.. and the 12 day safari.

Richard scuba diving in the Maldives on MV Sea Spirit

A superb trip from start to finish. Anne-Marie, Matt and the whole crew run a very slick operation.

This is my second trip aboard and the second was as good as the first.

They are experts in the fast paced drift dives of the Maldives and Manta rays.

Safety always the first priority on board followed by great diving..then possibly food on board.

Manta night time runway dive was a highlight. The trip was seamless. It was great to be with anne-Marie & Matt on the boat again. They are great dive guides and would recommend them to anyone.

Compliments to the crew also for their service and making the guests feel very welcome,

Hope to be back soon.

Shark in the Maldives seen off MV Sea Spirit.

As my first trip to the Maldives I was not sure whether the trip would live up to all the hype, but it delivered in spades.

From hanging in the current watching numerous sharks, to a whole day of 4 dives all producing Manta's, including the most spectacular night dive with feeding Manta's zooming up and down the "torch runway". Mind blowing stuff.

A night dive with 3 meter nurse sharks was another highlight and together with all the macro-life (ghost pipe leaf fish, nudibranches) the whole trip was enhanced by great guides who really know their stuff.

The food was good and the boat comfortable. An absolutely fantastic week that I want to do all over again.

Davids Shark in the Maldives.

Had a fantastic week diving, great crew, great dives and a fun crowd that all got on well.

The night time Ballet of Manta feeding made fantastic photos plus the runway of lights which the Manta floated up and down making it look like an underwater Heathrow Runway.

The last day with a white tip reef shark that loved the camera made lugging it down well worth it.
