Thank you all for a great diving trip. I'll never forget the night dive with the mantas and I felt like I've been in extremely safe hands all week.

Peter Sampson diving in the Maldives with a whaleshark!

Yet another “holiday of a lifetime” with Scuba Tours, this time on the Sea Spirit with Anne-Marie and Matt as our guides – and what excellent dive guides they are.  We had twelve days of truly excellent diving, a total of 34 dives in all.  Big highlight for us was the night diving off the back of the boat after dinner, with four mantas – and these mantas came really close-up, an inch or so from our heads at times.  We saw many sharks including a night dive with nurse sharks which was exciting.  The crew on the Sea Spirit and the dhoni all gave truly excellent service. 

We have been repeat customers of Scuba Tours for many years and there is a reason for that, we cannot recommend them highly enough.

What an amazing week.  Awesome diving and very experienced and knowledgeable guides.  The Manta night dive with Anne-Marie was without question the best dive of my life. The food and hospitality were fantastic and the crew very friendly and approachable.  On my list for another trip again soon.

Dave Reed

A fantastic week – the dives were simply wonderful. The night dive with the Mantas was the best ever – can’t think that anything will ever beat that experience! Thanks to Matt and Anne-Marie for being such great guides.

The week on Sea Spirit surpassed all my hopes and expectations. Matt and Anne-Marie were fantastic guides: each dive gave us such an amazing experience. The Mantas were magical.  Thanks to the crew for kindness and wonderful food!

Fantastic trip. Sea Spirit never fails to deliver.  Thanks Anne-Marie and Matt for some wonderful dives. Your knowledge of the dive sites and their occupants (mantas especially) is legendary. The crew were brilliant. So friendly and attentive.  This was my first 12 day trip having done week trips before and it was great to get to new sites away from the usual routes. Thanks also to my co divers. We had a laugh.

Back to back trips on Sea Spirit again...  ...and once more I’ll be leaving with a whole host of experiences. From the tiny stuff to that requiring the widest possible lens – I couldn’t have asked for more!

Once again, the Sea Spirit crew made such a difference to the holiday, building upon the experience of our magnificent dive guides. A number of the sites I’d dived before, but Anne-Marie and Matt enabled me to see them in a new light. Thanks to them for making my annual break such a special one.

Roll on the next trip on Sea Spirit!

Once again both the crew and Matt & Anne-Marie have given us a fantastic trip here on “Sea Spirit”. Excellent service from all of the crew, delicious food from the chef and as always Matt & Anne-Marie have worked hard to make our diving both exciting and safe with their knowledge of the Maldives, providing the right dive sites at the right time.

Two OMG night dives!! First with 5 mantas feeding behind Spirit, barrel rolling in front of my face for 100 mins.  The second was a nurse shark dive with way more than 10; some were very big boys and girls.  The rest of the dive was also very good with whale shark on one dive and plenty of eagle rays directions, Anne-Maria and Matt.  Thank you for great time.

The crew on both Spirit and the dive boat were very good attentive and the chef prepared some very excellent meals.

A fantastic holiday will be back.

Great holiday with a nice group of Brits, with us being the only Americans.  Crew was fantastic and very helpful.  The cruise directors and guides, Anne-Marie and Matt were wonderful showing us many things on each dive.  Anne-Marie is so knowledgeable about the Mantas and we had wonderful dives at a cleaning station plus a unique night dive with the mantas that was wonderful.    We enjoyed the itinerary and managed to get many great dives in even if weather came up which wasn’t too often.  Thanks for all the care given and the good times.

A fitting celebration for my 60th birthday – a medley of mantas at Manta Point; completed my Deep Dive speciality so I can now become a Master Scuba Diver! Thanks to Anne-Marie for all her help and advice (and fish impressions!); to Mags, John and Alan for their company; to husband Jeff for the SMB assistance and not forgetting all the crew who work so hard in the background to make our trip brilliant.  

See you all again soon, :) Lesley 

Thank you Anne-Marie and crew of Sea Spirit for a truly great trip, Lesley and I had a wonderful time.  Manta Reef was incredible – a display of Mantas (16) I will never forget. The night dive at Alimathaa Jetty with close encounters with Nurse Sharks and hungry Sting Rays amazing! My 300th dive to finish the trip and PADI Master Scuba Diver qualification achieved – Unbeatable. See you all again soon.  

Best wishes, Jeff

We would like to say a big thank you to Anne Marie and all the crew for our 12 day trip around the Central Atolls.  John and I enjoyed another adventure, this time aboard the Sea Spirit.  Our favourite encounters were Manta Reef with the Mantas, night dive at Alimathaa and the nurse sharks and today at Cocoa Thila. Thrilling dive with the sharks, eagle rays and the turtle, of course. Who could ask for more?

We will definitely be back to do you all again. Thanks also to Lesley, Jeff and Alan for all the laughs. Anne Marie you did a fine job looking after us, say hi to Matt and we hope to see him next time.

All the best from Mags & John xx

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.

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 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.

Scuba divers enjoying the best of the Maldives

Another fantastic trip on Sea Spirit with Matt and Anne-Marie.  The whale sharks at the back of the boat were an extra bonus.  Great shark shows and manta encounters.  Thanks to all the crew for an excellent trip.

Pat and Dave enjoying a break between dives in the Maldives

We have had another great trip, once again, thank you all.  The mantas, the eagle rays, the leaf fish, too many wonderful things to mention in one comment.  We have had a great time and look forward to the next.

Scuba diver in the Maldives with amazing reefs

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!

Divers in the Maldives on holiday with Scuba Tours Worldwide

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

Thank you both and your fantastic crew for one of the best weeks diving we have ever experienced, mantas, whale sharks, sharks, turtles and much more. The atmosphere on the trip was great and we were always kept informed of the dive plan for the day. We hope to dive with you both again in such a relaxed but professional environment. We will be back!

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.

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!

Divers on holiday with Scuba Tours Worldwide enjoy a beautiful Maldivian sunset

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.
