This was both my first liveaboard and first time in the Maldives and I can say that the experience exceeded all of my expectations. The crew were all incredibly warm and welcoming, and Dave and Lisa were fantastic guides on the underwater adventures. The food, accommodation and diving were all top notch, and I will definitely use Scuba Tours again for any liveaboards in the future. Thank you for all your patience and professionalism when arranging my itinerary and I hope to see you all again soon.

Great trip, fantastic boat, guides and crew. This was my first trip to the Maldives, having dived the Great Barrier Reef and Utila off Honduras and this place surpassed both of them. There was a great variety of undersea life including sharks, whale sharks, manta rays and loads of smaller animals.

The guides, David and Lisa, were superb. They have a huge amount of experience diving in the Maldives meaning the dives were always well planned and the briefings excellent. They offered assistance where needed whilst letting more experienced divers do their own thing.

The boat was spacious, the food was excellent and the crew friendly and professional.

My personal highlights of the trip were diving with a whale shark, and night dives with manta rays and sharks. I’d wholeheartedly recommend this trip.

What a joy to dive with Dave and Lisa. Without doubt they are the best dive guides and hosts you could hope to have on a dive trip. They are professional, experienced, patient, and passionate about what they do. They care about the underwater environment as well as ensuring guests have fantastic diving. The dive operation is smooth, the boat well run and I will be back (and I have been coming back again and again over the last 15 years). And the diving gets better and better – 4 Whale Sharks on one dive! Thank you for everything. 

From a very happy diver

MV Sunset Queen is a very spacious diving platform to base a week’s liveaboard experience from. The food was excellent in quality, plentiful in supply and diverse enough to satisfy allcomers.

The diving is relaxed and very flexible to maximise your time in the Maldives. Highlights have to include diving with the friendly manta rays, nurse sharks with the highlight being a night dive with manta rays performing underwater ballet routines to a captive audience- truly a magical experience and one to be savoured for any years to come.

From another very happy diver

The boat has plenty of space and is comfortable, the food was great and the effort the crew put in to making Christmas special was amazing – the decorations on the boat and the fantastic dinner was wonderful. All the crew on the boat and the dhoni are very attentive and helpful.

Dave and Lisa are the best dive guides we’ve ever dived with so we were happy they were back in the Maldive, making sure everyone is well looked after and planning varied and spectacular diving. The dives with the mantas nurse sharks and whalesharks were particularly memorable but all the dives were fantastic. Hopefully we’ll be back to do another trip with them for longer as this trip flew by too quickly.

Thanks for a great week of diving.  I was lucky to have guides, Anne-Marie and Matt, who are both very experienced and knowledgeable.  

We all knew we were in good hands which added to the enjoyment.  The Sea Spirit was an ideal size of boat for relaxing on and mingling with the other guests.   The support crew were great too and the food was superb.

All the girls on MV Sunset Queen. the Maldives

As a Non-Diver, but a Sun Queen, I have had a fabulous break on Sunset Queen!

The crew and instructors are friendly and attentive, and to have some crew members to take me snorkelling and ensuring I was ok much appreciated.

On this holiday I have swum with Turtles, Manta Rays, bright colourful fish of all sizes, and to top it off I had a smiling Whale Shark swim directly below a smiling me and my supportive instructor, Lisa.

Many, Many thanks and see you again soon !!

Niall and Amelia scuba diving in the Maldives on MV Sunset Queen.

Dave and Lisa guided our seven day tour of the Central Atolls with knowledge and humour throughout. 

As relative novice divers, Lisa instructed us to our PADI advanced open water diver certification.  We were able to complete the course as part of the weeks diving and build our modules into the group dives to ensure we didnt miss out on the incredible opportunites that the Maldives offer.

Following this we felt confident to explore the incredible environs of the Maldives and were fortunate enough to see many of the key species that we came to see including Mantas, Turtles and Whale Sharks, EAgle rays, Nurse Sharks and the list goes on.....

Highlights included night diving with Manta's, snorkelling with whale sharks and watching Nurse sharks and sting rays feed. Macro life was incredible with an opportunity to see soft corals, a whole range of butterfly fish, parrotfish, groupers, basslets, gobies etc.  We identified somewhere in the region of one hundred unique species on the trip (and we certainly arent experts)

The Sunset Queen is well equipped for divers and non-divers with plenty of space, comfortable rooms, a friendly and helpful crew and opportunies to recharge batteries and review the day's photographs.

All in all, we would highly recommend the trip, the Sunset Queen and Lisa and Dave for your visit to the Maldives.

 

Thanks Again,

Thanks for a wonderful trip.  We booked to be on the trip with AMKW and we were not disappointed. Her enthusiasm and motivation is amazing and inspirational. The mantas were fantastic; particularly in the dark - WOW!

Food and organisation were all top notch. Particularly the curries. Yum Yum. Fish were something else as well. 

Matt's sense of humour is ace and entertaining. The crew were very professional and polite. Overall, one of the best trips we've had and we cant wait to book our 2015 trip with Scuba Tours and AMKW and Matt - Thank you all

Tracy and Bob

 

Thank you for an amazing trip and a great start to my 30th year. Every dive was amazing with great introduction and fantastic life.

The crew were great with amazing meals and just the right amount of help getting ready for each dive.

This was our first time to the Maldives and I hope not the last. We have never seen Mantas before this trip and I hope to see them again soon.  Thank you, again, for a wonderful holiday experience we will never forget.

Paul and Charlotte

 

First trip on Sea Spirit for some and for a very long time with Anne-Marie and Matt as dive guides.  The result was a perfect trip; excellent dives, superb food and the sun shone for a few days as well!  The night dive with the Mantas is defintely on of my top dives of all time. I will return soon. . . .

An incredible safari, a variety of dives and as hoped for lots of time with the wonderful Mantas - on cleaning stations and most memorably on a night dive to watch them feeding. UNFORGETTABLE!

Just as we thought we had seen the best there was to see, a second night dive was spent with 40 to 50 nurse sharks and a variety of rays. AWESOME!

For me, this was the best dive trip ever and Ive been on a few.

Thanks to Anne-Marie and Matt and the excellent crew who supported us throughout.

Duncan and Dawne on board MV Sea Spirit, the Maldives

Our first liveaboard trip, and also our first dive trip to the Maldives - and one that provided everything we could have possibly hoped for.

We had some amazing manta ray experiences - on a number of the dives, together with encounters with wonderful creatures, great and small.

The trip ran smoothly - even when the unexpected was thrown in our way - and for me, that is a greater testament of the skills and composure of both Anne-Marie and Matt, than we had previously appreciated.

We are now converts - both to the liveaboard way of diving, and the Maldives as a dive destination.

A very happy ship for the 12 day South Safari. Good mix of Californian, Australian and British guests.  My favourite dives were Y Thila, Magnificent Thila and the Manta dives on Mudokan, especially the solo 40 minute show by Mrs T. 

Thanks to the Sea Spirit crew, Anne-Marie and Matt for making it all happen.  Alex

Yolanda and Curly Tail the Manta in the Maldives, Far South on MV Sea Spirit

WOW wonderful trip - full of adventure. Anne-Marie, Matt and the Sea Spirit crew made our life on board easy and trouble free.

Weather was varied – some stormy conditions but we ‘dived on’ regardless. We loved the surprise experience of snorkelling with a pod of melon headed whales and dolphins – and then the mantas! Fantastic! A great experience, definitely a trip worth doing!

Thank you. Randall and Yolanda.

WOW wonderful trip - full of adventure.
Phil in the Far South, Maldives on MV Sea Spirit.

What a different trip.  Weather was against us for the first four days but Anne-Marie, Matt and the crew kept us diving.  We had continual out currents on the channels which meant we did not really get to see the sharks but still saw lovely hard coral gardens.  The weather then changed for the better. 

We had a once in a life moment when we were surrounded by a super pod of Melon Whales and dolphins, well over two thousand.  We actually snorkelled for a short time with them and the noise underwater was amazing. Then came the manta dives in Addu atoll, great interaction with the mantas with Anne-Marie’s extra knowledge given in a presentation on mantas gave added dimension.

Sea Spirit and the crew were fantastic, all very helpful.  The food was as always to a very high standard and kept everyone very satisfied.  Anne-Marie and Matt kept the diving very interesting and varied even in the worst weather we had.

A lovely trip and I will be coming back for more next year.

Maldives - Fantastic as always, Mrs T - friendliest manta ever!

A huge thank you to the crew for all the hard work, Anne-Marie and Matt for the cracking diving and looking after us. Fabulous group of fellow guests to spend 12 nights with.

Thanks to all and kindest regards, Dawn

Alex - Hello... scuba diving on MV Sea Spirit, the Maldives Far South

A very happy ship for the 12 day South Safari. Good mix of Californian, Australian and British guests.  My favourite dives were Y Thila, Magnificent Thila and the Manta dives on Mudokan, especially the solo 40 minute show by Mrs T. 

Thanks to the Sea Spirit crew, Anne-Marie and Matt for making it all happen.  Alex

Yolanda and Curly Tail the Manta in the Maldives, Far South on MV Sea Spirit

WOW wonderful trip - full of adventure. Anne-Marie, Matt and the Sea Spirit crew made our life on board easy and trouble free.

Weather was varied – some stormy conditions but we ‘dived on’ regardless. We loved the surprise experience of snorkelling with a pod of melon headed whales and dolphins – and then the mantas! Fantastic! A great experience, definitely a trip worth doing!

Thank you. Randall and Yolanda.

Phil in the Far South, Maldives on MV Sea Spirit.

What a different trip.  Weather was against us for the first four days but Anne-Marie, Matt and the crew kept us diving.  We had continual out currents on the channels which meant we did not really get to see the sharks but still saw lovely hard coral gardens.  The weather then changed for the better. 

We had a once in a life moment when we were surrounded by a super pod of Melon Whales and dolphins, well over two thousand.  We actually snorkelled for a short time with them and the noise underwater was amazing. Then came the manta dives in Addu atoll, great interaction with the mantas with Anne-Marie’s extra knowledge given in a presentation on mantas gave added dimension.

Not our first trip to the Maldives, but our first trip to the Far South and our Free trip too 

Mantas, sharks -  especially the Zebra Shark of course always worth of a special mention. This time around learning from the Manta expert will help us in our future searches for those incredible creatures.

Brilliant trip, brilliant fun.. Thanks for everything.

I was asked by my fellow divers on the boat to provide a farewell song, but with too short notice to actually sing it.

Here is my summary of the trip to be sung along with J.Joplins "Mercedes Benz"

Oh lord, won't you buy me a "Sea Spirit" trip

The crew is fantastic and so is the ship

Don't be so nasty and gimme a few quids

So Lord, won't you buy me a "Sea Spirit" trip

Cheerio and thanks, Tom.

This is our 2nd 12 day safari with Ann Marie and Matt doing the southern area. Each trip gets better AND the diving excellent.

Matt has recorded the dives on his superb blue ray video therefore we will always have these memories.. Keep up the good work.

The food as usual was excellent and the crew made OUR TRIP VERY ENJOYABLE AND RELAXING

We wish to thank the office crew at the head office of Maldives Scuba Worldwide for such brillian service especially the super salesman Graham.

This was my first liveaboard with Scuba Travels WW & was a fantastic experience right from booking.

I must mention Chris Bell who made all attempts to suggest flights that would fit my schedule to welcome at the Male Airport.

Sea Spirit is a small boat with a big heart.. the crew is fabulous, the cruise directors (Anne-Marie & Matt) very freindly & knowledgeable.

And the diving was SUPERB!

Thank you for this wonderful trip - I'll be back

Gareth & Carolyn Hicks getting ready to scuba dive the Maldives on Mv Sea Spirit

To the tune of “Balls to your partner” (a rugby song)

Twelve amazing divers

On Sea-Spirit they met

With Anne-marie and Matt aboard

for a trip never to forget

Singing (refrain)

Pull on your wetsuit to make you feel alive

You’ve never had fun if you haven’t begun

To get in for a dive

 

Alan and Yolanda

Have travelled miles and miles

They’re off to Casablanca

Wearing beaming smiles

Jan has come from Switzerland

His English has been shon

He also speaks good German

Which we should really learn

Anna came from Norway

Travelling with her stick

She’s got a photo of everything

It’s been a clever trick

(refrain)

Anji came from Birmingham

I’m glad she’s on our side

She’s really loved the diving

But the mantas made her cry

Neil and Issi brought their flags

When they came along

We love them diving every dive

So I added them to the song

 

We saw a spotty whaleshark

When we were near the shore

I really liked to see it

Cos I haven’t seen one before

 

(refrain)

 

We wrote some songs

For every fish – that we saw in the blue

The Manta’s, sharks and turtles

Were swimming past two by two

 

The Captain’s been amazing

He’s driven us to our fate

The crew are all outstanding

So thank them all shipmates

 

The week has passed so quickly

It’s been a lot of fun

It’s over + it’s passed us by

Before it’s just begun

 

(refrain)

Matt has done the video

Filming in the deep

He’s made a copy for everyone

To take home and to keep

 

Anne-Marie has been the boss

We dived with her a lot

Would we dive with her again

Of course, yessssssss, why not ?

 

Anders, Al and Niklas,

From Sweden they have flown,

We love to share our holidays

We never go on our own

 

That only leaves the Hickses

Mrs H and me

We’ve loved the trip – so thank you all

We’ll see you in the sea

Marine life was just unbelievable...apart from the night dive with Mantas that is something I will remember forever, the other dives were all special in many different ways: Coral, loads of fish,sharks, eagle rays, turtles, wrecks, crustaceans, dolphins..Anne-Marie and Matt did a fantastic job at pointing out all different kinds of creatures and underwater wonders.

A wonderful experience, highly recommended for the friendly ambience, the excellent local knowledge of all dive sites, the size of the group, food... basically for everything.

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.

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!

SS429 guests enjoying MV Sea Spirit.

Thank you for a brilliant week, I was lucky to see everything I did and a lot of this was down to Matt and Anne-Marie taking us to the right dive sites. The crew were all fantastic and looked after us all. The best diving i've done. - Lt Col Phil Mauer RE

Mantas, whalesharks and sharks - perfect and a grand diving week. Great teaming crew and perfect food. Thank you all for fantastic week! Geoff Eggleston

Herzlichen dank fuer eine unvergessliche urlaubswoche. Heinz und Beine

If Carlsberg did 50th Birthday Celebrations, then this would be it! I organised this trip with 8 good friends to celebrate my 50th and it was truly fantastic, great diving, great crew & guides and best of all a great time. Mark Wilson. PS the food was bloody marvellous

Thank you for a very enjoyable diving experience and if I was ever in this part of the world again I would certainly dive with you again. Ron Gear

WOW, what a week! Amazing diving, amazing crew, amazing food.... first class in every respect. Paul Wilson

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

Sea Spirit SS427 16 Feb 2014 12 days
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.

Thank you so much for a great holiday...
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.
