Sea Spirit SS506 22 May 2016 7 days

Great week, although *FAR* too short...

Being on a small boat really made for a friendly atmosphere and chilled, uncrowded dives.

We will be recommending the Maldives and sea spirit in particular to any divers we meet.

Many thanks to David, Lisa and the whole crew not to mention Li’l Bit

A friendly atmosphere and chilled, uncrowded dives.

Excellent weeks diving with a good bunch of divers.  The crew are very helpful. Rooms are cleaned daily. The chef did excel himself with a varied cuisine! With no complaints from any of the guests. 

The dive guides knowledge of the dive sites was excellent and the briefing each dive was detailed with a plan B in place at all times.

I will be recommending to my dive buddies to dive on the Sea Spirit with David and Lisa plus crew.

Recommending to my dive buddies to dive on the Sea Spirit.

An amazing week, that went far too fast. The bonus for me was Sea Spirit takes only 12 divers. This week (22nd May – 29th May), was a double bonus with just 6 divers.

Lisa and David’s knowledge is second to none. There was always a backup plan, if the first dive site was undiveable due to the currents in the Maldives, there was another dive site nearby that we were able to dive.

The dhoni crew were always on hand to help you get into your gear, and to help you out of the water.

Cabins were always immaculate after the morning dive. The food was amazing with a good variety.

Last but not least there was the ships bird, an amusing little bird called Lil’ Bit.

An amazing week, that went far too fast.

A perfect introduction to diving in the Maldives thanks to the excellent dive guiding and knowledge of Lisa and David combined with the boat and crew.  Each day was well organized without being regimented and a degree of flexibility depending on current conditions or other factors. On board the dhoni the crew were always there to help without being asked. On board Sea Spirit the cabins were always cleaned on return from the morning dive and mealtimes were a highlight with chef Thilak’s culinary skills from brilliant curry selections to perfect roast beef and apple crumble. 

I would have no hesitation in recommending this trip and hope to return myself at some stage in the not too distant future.

Excellent trip well looked after by all the team. Super dives allot of effort to ensure we had the opportunity to see as much as possible, good safety and guidance. Crew very efficient and helpful and the chef did a great job with the food. Thanks to all

A fantastic weeks diving, guided by two very experienced guides and a very wide selection of varied dive sites.

It has been so nice to have been on a smaller boat which has had more of a homely atmosphere.

The boats crew have been some of the best I’ve experienced and the food has definitely been in a league of its own

Thank you all for making this a very special weeks diving.

Thanks to everyone involved with the boat, for making it such a fantastic week.

By far the best diving holiday i have ever had, Dave and Lisa are brilliant guides and know these dive sites with great knowledge! The crew aboard the MV Sea Spirit have been superb and have helped kit up and could not have done more for us. The food onboard has been to die for!! I am already looking at coming back.

Thanks for a wonderful trip. Dave and Lisa were fantastic as were the entire crew. I was amazed at the quality of the food with a wide variety of dishes, all of which were delicious. The weather wasn’t great for us but with the guides experience we still dived some fantastic sites and even got to snorkel and dive with mantas! Best wishes to all of you and I hope to have the opportunity to dive with you folks again. Love.

I last dived with Lisa and Dave in 2007 and was over the moon to learn they would be our guides for week. Not the best weather wise but the crew have tried to ensure that we have pretty much seen it all this week. The crew have been simply excellent and cannot fault how they have looked after us both on the dive boat and aboard Sea Sprit. Please do not sell this remaining small boat she’s a real gem. Everyone has already mentioned how good the food was. One final point please change the ladder on the dive boat. Thank you for another amazing trip in the Maldives xxx

First time in the Maldives and I’m ruined forever! The Captain and crew of Sea Spirit and Niumath are just the best. The food was excellent, three cheers for the chef This is without doubt the best Birthday present ever, especially spending time with the Manta rays. Thank you Lisa and Dave for your never ending enthusiasm and expert knowledge of the dive sites and the exceptional effort you put in to make it a trip to remember for everybody. With our group of mixed ability divers you showed an outstanding level of professionalism and patience ensuring that safety was paramount.

This has been the experience of a lifetime; helped by the dedication and highly professional support of Dave and Lisa (Our perfect guides). Never thought, in my wildest dreams I would see so much of what SCUBA diving is all about. Amazing!!!  Loved living on this old wooden boat, with all mod cons, being rocked to sleep by the gentle sea. The boat crew were very helpful and worked as a great team to make our stay enjoyable. Many thanks especially to Thilak, who cooked up some wonders in his tiny galley; always providing me with veggie options at every sitting. Would recommend the whole trip to ANYONE!

Thanks to all the crew and Lisa and David for a marvellous trip.  It has filled in the bits of the Maldives that we have not done before and the diving has been great. (But where was the frogfish??) Once again, the crew have been marvellous and as helpful as ever, the food has been excellent, the dhoni pulled up on cue at the end of the dive and I was cheerfully hauled out of the water, as always.  Long may Sea Spirit continue!!

Four manta dives, two whale sharks, lost count of all the white tips, morays, turtles and countless reef fish. Fantastic trip, got to see far more sea life than we had hoped for, thanks to the excellent job by Lisa & Dave. Thanks also to the crew for their generous hospitality, good service, and thanks to Thilak for the very tasteful food!

Sea Spirit SS502 10 Apr 2016 12 days

As returning guests to the Maldives we have already had experiences that exceeded our expectations so this trip needed to deliver for us again. We were very excited before we flew out at the prospect of spending another holiday in the company of Dave and Lisa, and we have not been disappointed. We chose to keep off the main “bus route” for this trip and nearly all of the sites we dived have been new to us. This was our fifth trip with Scuba Tours and our party included divers that like small macro and the thrill of the large pelagic. What can we say, although we have had some dives that not all parties looking for sharks have had the exhilaration of previous experiences the diving once again has not failed to deliver. 

There have been some amazing interactions with eagle rays and mantas. We have seen leopard shark, lemon shark and guitar shark that some of our party have not seen before. We even experienced five types of shark on one dive. 

We have had opportunity to snorkel with dolphins and manta which was fabulous for those that could swim enough to keep up with the dolphins! All this is down to the dedication and commitment of the guides Dave and Lisa who nothing is too much trouble for. 

There have been opportunities to visit local islands and see the ancient Kaani tree – that was an amazing sight and on such a beautiful island with very friendly locals. In contrast we have also experienced the “pringle run”.

Our group whom “live life to the full in bubbles creating memories” would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to the Dave Lisa, and all the crew of the Sea Spirit for yet another fabulous holiday, amazing food and great hospitality from all the staff. Already looking forward to our next trip.

Had a wonderful time on the boat.  A great variety of dives and experiences - the diving was well planned, fun and varied.  We really enjoyed it.  The boat was great and it was a pleasure to be on a smaller boat.  Enjoyed the excursion onto an island to see the oldest tree in the Maldives and seeing Maldives way of live.  The food is the best we have ever had on a liveaboard and there was plenty of it.  The crew were friendly and extremely helpful.  We would definitely come back to the Maldives to this boat and with Dave and Lisa as dive managers.  Thankyou!

Sea Spirit SS501 3 Apr 2016 7 days

This has to be the best liveaboard team around: Lisa and Dave made the week what it was with their excellent local knowledge; accurate and comprehensive briefings that delivered every time giving us just about every critter you could want (quite often rounded up and delivered to us by Dave!); their attention to detail made for safe and relaxed dives; their hard work, limitless patience and great fun topped it off. Cap’n Mohammed and the crew were exceptional, incredibly friendly and helpful; willing and eager to help without being in your face; special mention to Chef Thilak who produced a wide ranging menu featuring different cuisines every day to standards that would grace any top restaurant. Ships mascot Gregor was a joy.

Big thanks to everybody, a brilliant weeks diving.

Thanks Dave Lisa Captain Mohammed and crew for one of my best diving week’s ever. Never seen so many critters big and small. Such a friendly, happy competent team is very rare. Despite Dave’s offer of a free beer I really really mean the above honest.

Once again thanks for a great week.

Fifth time of coming to the Maldives and I must say that this was the best trip of all!!

Dave and Lisa fulfilled everything that they promised and then really excelled on the dusk/night dive.  No “spoiler alert” but it was awesome!

Dave, Lisa and the whole of the Sea Spirit crew were so friendly and helpful, with plenty of laughs thrown in and no review would be complete without a mention of the food! Again, the word “fantastic” doesn’t do it justice.

Thanks to all involved with ‘Sea Spirit’, anyone wondering whether to book should do it NOW!

This my fifth visit to the Maldives and probably the best. The three things that make a good dive trip in my opinion are the boat – small but friendly with a good captain and crew, the chef – Mr T was exceptional producing some of the best liveaboard food ever. And last, but not least, the dive guides – Dave and Lisa were both excellent very experienced and know the area very well and gave us a great weeks diving.  Many thanks to all.

The perfect storm on a dive cruise – excellent guides, excellent boat, excellent chef and excellent crew. All made for a relaxing, interesting and busy week that passed too quickly, a sure sign that they’re doing it right!! Would look to book again with Dave and Lisa next time we’re this way, and hopefully on the Sea Spirit!

This is our third trip to the Maldives and it continues to exceed our expectations. The diving will remain in our memories for many years, particularly the shark encounters and a night dive which will not be forgotten!
The organisation and dedication of Anne-Marie, Matt and the crew is faultless, and made the trip so enjoyable and the diving such great fun. Thanks to everyone on Sea Sprit for such a great trip.
