Incredible private cruise
We are wrapping up our charter this morning and we had an incredible time. The boat was absolutely perfect for our family, and it didn’t feel like a maiden cruise (though I know the crew worked very hard to address the small issues that always come up with a new boat). In particular, I want to highlight how great all of the crew was. They really went out of their way to make it a great experience for us, and particularly Nasru and Adam, who were always highly knowledgeable, professional, and a pleasure to be around. The food was also surprisingly good.
We are delighted
We are delighted with our trip on theDhoni Stella. The boat is perfect, the crew at the top. We really ate very well, we fished and ate our fish. The days were punctuated by snorkelling where we could swim with multicoloured fish, turtles, sharks, rays and for the last day dolphins. There's nothing wrong with this trip. He was perfect.
These 10 days on the Dhoni stella 2 have been fabulous.
Kaathee's little dishes, Suleiman's kindness, Aju's humour and the Captain's professionalism made each day extraordinary.
Used to private cruises, this stay is by far the best we have ever had.
From breakfast to bedtime, the crew is always there to offer you an activity or to help you discover the beauty of the Maldives. Abandoned beach, snorkeling, diving, BBQ, whaleshark... Everything was absolutely perfect. Evening fishing at the back of the Dhoni and the pleasure of tasting the fish caught was a pure pleasure. Aju's presence on the boat is a real plus: Briefing of the dives the day before, debriefing after the dives, selection of the best spots for snorkeling, all this while avoiding the crowd, what a joy.
We would like to thank Jérômeyou for your availability and good advice in organizing our trip and the whole crew for all these excellent moments spent together.
Very well supervised snorkeling outings
Very well supervised and safe snorkeling outings. Friendliness and efficiency of the crew of the boat. Visits to the fishermen and male Islands very well commented. Excellent meals and taste surprises assured by the chef. Excellent overall atmosphere. To do and redo.
Very nice snorkeling cruise in the Maldives
Very nice snorkeling cruise in the Maldives atolls. The accompanists, Dominique and San, were simply perfect. The super friendly cruise mates and the great crew. The food was good and tasty. I recommend this cruise with your eyes closed.
I didn't expect to enjoy this week on the boat as much (1000 times better than staying 5 days on 1 island)! It was really great. We never lack for anything.
We've seen everything... Skates, turtles, sharks, and luckily hundreds of dolphins in 2 times.
We have time to enjoy and at the same time we never get bored. We sail just the right way: regularly but never too long.
A magical stay
A magical stay on a comfortable boat, the Dhinasha. The crew was discreet and attentive. The seabed is still beautiful, full of colors with all sorts of fish. Thank you for this discovery! 🙂
Super nice cruise
Super beautiful cruise, magnificent dives with mantas and whale shark on the program, very nice group and boat (theGurahali) at the top with instructors who know the sites very well, comfort and excellent meals throughout the cruise. See you soon!!!
Beautiful cruise on the Stella I
We really liked the standing of the boat (Dhoni Stella I) as well as the extreme kindness of the whole crew who were very attentive throughout the cruise.
Great weather, very calm sea and lots of fish in snorkeling.
We are very satisfied with our trip.
Congratulations to the cook Kumar who delighted us.
A dream trip on a snorkeling cruise
A dream trip with a small group of 9 people, a crew with little care, excellent meals, fish of all kinds, thanks to the Agency under the ocean for contributing to this wonderful stay!
We will come back...
Private cruise ideal for our family with our 2 children (11 and 14 years old). The crew of the Dhoni Stella is professional and very friendly. The welcome is warm and the activities very well organized. By specifying before arrival the style of cuisine we liked and the drinks, we were delighted by the catering on board the Dhoni Stella. For us, it was local cuisine (not too spicy for our children) and fresh fish. The "Chef" is a master in the preparation of the raw fish that we caught as a family with the precious help of the sailors.
The reefs for snorkeling and diving sites (we had the chance to spend 1 hour with mantas rays around us) were very beautiful. Especially when you're the only boat. The lagoons chosen for the nights were very quiet and very pleasant.
Our only desire is to leave another time with the same formula but can be longer...
The perfection, the dream stay, the food of a level of a 4 star resort. Organization before the perfect trip with a personalised itinerary, activities and meals aboard our catamaran. In August the weather was very nice with a calm sea and that of the Sun! in snorkeling we saw everything: rays mantas, sharks and a lot of turtle. The islets reef in Felidhoo atoll are very pretty with a lot of fish.
Thanks to the crew for the evening on the deserted island. Fortunately there were no mosquitoes. We really enjoyed this private family cruise with our 3 children. We recommend this trip to book for a family or a group of friends.
Great stay despite the little annoyances. Very nice and competent sailing and supervising team. Very good knowledge of snorkeling spots. Top security for snorkeling and diving. I would definitely recommend it.
Memorable private cruise to the Maldives
One week cruise in a privatized catamaran. We were 6 friends with 3 crew members. From the plane exit heading towards Malé Sud and the atoll of Félidhoo. Every day its lot of surprises, dolphins, rays, turtles,... snorkeling and underwater beauties... and we even swam with the sharks!
Everything was perfect from the moment we arrived at Maldives airport: transfer, boarding, diving; until the moment of departure... I was hoping that time would pass more slowly and I tell you that you should enjoy it from the first moments.
Very beautiful dives with a lot to see: manta rays, sharks, whaleshark, macro life, ghost fish, crabs, turtles, eagle rays, stingrays, varieties of fish in abundance... etc etc... too much to mention. Super dive guides, delicious meals served in a buffet when we come back from each dive... and we met other divers on board with whom we will travel with pleasure...
We really had a very good experience with theAdora and the agency Sous l'Océan which took care of everything. The staff was professional and very dedicated.
We are so happy to have chosen this cruise ship. If we come back, we certainly won't look any further. I highly recommend the agency and adore it.
Beautiful boat and superb dives
This was our first cruise, so we are not experts..... but we really enjoyed theAdora, the guides and the cruise. It was in March with very good weather and an itinerary in the far south of the Maldives. The dive was just remarkable and we saw mantas, a lot of sharks and a lot of fish of all kinds. The room is luxurious and huge for a boat. We thank the guides for the choice of sites and their great knowledge of all the atolls in the south. We sailed at night to dive in the early morning into the passes of the Huvadhoo atoll and swim among the dolphins...
we saw everything on board the cruise: Adoramantas, a lot of sharks and 2 whale sharks in the evening behind the boat for more than 4 hours...really great memories and incredible images with my Go Pro camera
Incredible experience in the Maldives
Awesome! TheAmba is currently the only diving boat in operation in the northern Maldives, so the diving sites were not crowded with boats and divers.
Sleep on the upper deck under the stars. It was wonderful. The cabins are very good too, as well as the meals!
Best week of diving
The crew was really very professional and friendly. Especially in cooking with delicious meals compared to my other cruises in the Maldives.
We made 18 dives, all different with mantas, sharks and a very abundant fauna. We discovered the northern atolls with great pleasure and will come back for the Hanimadhoo special stage at Raa atoll.
A word of advice, the currents are sometimes quite strong (full moon), remember to bring a reef hook, although it is also Availabilityon theAmba.
Very beautiful boat
The cabins are very spacious and even the bathroom was much larger than most cruise ships. The crew is fantastic and does everything possible to ensure the happiness of the customers, and the main lounge is spacious and comfortable. You can relax in several outdoor areas.
Diving in the great North was amazing. Beautiful visibility and a marine life so abundant. And we never had to share the sights with another cruise ship.
We highly recommend this trip! Thanks to under the ocean
A lot of Manta
About fifteen mantas on a station in Hanimadhoo. These dives were fantastic. A lot of fish on all reefs.
And no other boats!
Everything has been wonderful!
Everything has been wonderful! From the plate to the seabed, a delight for all the senses! So thank you to the crew, of a very delicate and kind kindness and thank you to our diving instructors (Charlotte and Jc) that we followed with our eyes closed... for my part, 2nd trip, same dates, same boat (theKoimala) we do not stop being surprised!!!!
Very nice snorkeling cruise, beautiful fish
Very nice cruise beautiful colorful fish swim with manta rays. Hot water and beautiful lagoons. Very good guide very pleasant and available. Very safe supervision for snorkeling
Cruise to the top!!!
Cruise to the top!!! Nothing to say, no negative points really!
Great cruise with the !Amba
An absolutely awesome 10-day diving cruise! Everything went smoothly and simply, from welcoming Nicole to the airport. The diving program has been organized so that each time they are surprising and dazzling (grey sharks, white tips, manta rays, eagle rays, nurse sharks) and even 2 whale sharks, one in daytime diving and the 2nd at night around theAmba. The instructors are both very professional, constantly attentive and caring, and create a friendly atmosphere on the boat.
The Maldivian crew is adorable, and the meals, prepared on board with great care by the cook, are to fall to the ground! Maldivian specialities often made with tuna or chicken, vegetables, rice or pasta, fruit, cakes... Enough to satisfy the hunger created by the 3 daily dives. One thing is certain, it is impossible to lose a gram during these 10 days!) But we enjoy it in every way.
Jérôme Whoever took care of the reservation is a very efficient and available correspondent.
The cruise went perfectly.
The cruise went perfectly. The boat, the Gurahaliis beautiful, with all the comfort. The crew of the Gurahali like a diving boat is incredibly kind and available. The meals were delicious thanks to Saman, a talented chef. The dives were all more beautiful than the others. Jean-Charles and Charlotte, our DM dive guides during this stay were very professional, welcoming and warm. The diving boat was spacious. The rhythm of the days was ideal. The visits to the fishing islands and Malé with Charlotte as a tourist guide were a real plus. And the surprise reserved by the crew was simply extraordinary. Everything was done to create a great atmosphere.
A perfect cruise!
A perfect cruise!
A comfortable boat, a discreet and efficient crew and our guides (JC and Charlotte) welcoming and pleasant.
Ideal diving conditions, low wind, low current and crystal clear water on the East and South atolls (perfect for photographers)
Obviously we had the mantas, the sharks of all kinds, the yellow fish, blue, red, green and the others...
Everything was gathered for this successful cruise
We're coming back!
The crew of the Gurahaliis great. A big thank you to JC and Charlotte for their welcome, humour and search for sites all more beautiful than the others.
We left early February 2019 with sous l'ocean for a private 8j cruise in the Maldives. The Sun was at the rendezvous and the snorkeling spots of all beauty. We were able to enjoy Virgin Islands for ourselves, swimming with turtles, mantas and sharks thanks to the attentive listening of the captain. Birthday by candlelight on a small island lost on the Ocean: giant!
The memory will remain unforgettable. To do and redo.
Small flat: the visit of two inhabited islands is not of major interest (minimalist architecture and stores of postcards and shells). the visit of one island is far enough...
Apart from this minor remark, this cruise was memorable.
Very professional supervision
Very professional snorkeling supervision while remaining very benevolent and very friendly.
Crew identical to the small care
Number of people weak on the boat, 12 customers max per boat, and very comfortable
boat As it was the first time, we left with a lot of apprehension and returned enchanted, ready to leave.
Congratulations to the entire team at Under the Ocean.
Everything is perfect.
Everything is perfect. Lovely team. TheAmba is a great boat. Extra dives. Super happy.
Thank you very much for your seriousness and efficiency.
See you soon. And Happy New Year to you.
Nice cruise, spoiled a little by a bad visi but you have nothing to do with it 🙂
Sébastien and Rebecca at the top, great crew.
On top of that, a dive with a magnificent whale shark
Perfectly organized cruise trip
Stay-cruise perfectly organized and to advise divers who want to discover the beauty of the underwater life of the Maldives.
Very nice trip overall.
Very nice trip overall. Attention on an extra night in Malé. This is not interesting for a full day. You have to book a day on a hotel island.
It was a fabulous magical parenthesis that I recommend to all!!!
Back for a month now, we still have an intact memory of this heavenly week in the Maldives!!! We were greeted by a remarkable crew because of its professionalism and kindness on a boat of the simplest, but also the most comfortable to live this experience!!! Everything is done to highlight and enjoy every moment of exception: both on the different snorkelings (we were able to go swimming among the dolphins!! we have seen turtles, mantas rays, baby sharks and a multitude of multicolored fishes!!!) that to delight our taste buds (the chef is exceptional. you have to come to taste its dishes... they are... At the height of what our eyes were able to discover under the water!!!) on each of our shared meals...!!! Thank you again to all the crew and especially to our two instructors: Alexandre and Rama, to chef Aita as well as to other staff members.
It was a fabulous magical parenthesis that I recommend to all!!!
Anne and Frédéric

Very nice cruise
Very nice cruise on a comfortable boat. The whole team was very professional and available. Thanks to Dominique for his supervision and to the crew for the quality of the service
I regret a little the festive aspect (without excess) that could have animated this trip: a small aperitif and a little music in the evening on the upper deck would have been very pleasant.....
everything is magical
no opinion everything is magical
diving dedicated to the past and the big (sporty)

To do and to do again
Magical place and snorkeling coaching + diving knowing very well his work and its sites.
Beautiful private catamaran cruise
Wonderful catamaran cruise. We privatized the catamaran for our family: 2 adults and 3 children. Over a week, between deserted Islands, snorkeling and fishing, the stay was perfect. the catamaran is very well maintained, the crew is Pro, friendly and very discreet. The tasty food, we tasted the fish we fished. Thanks again for the evening on the beach, unforgettable...
I can only recommend
I can only recommend this trip. Beautiful stay that, beyond the underwater wonders that I could observe every day in snorkeling (rays, turtles, dolphins, sharks, coral, multicolored fish...) allowed me to disconnect at 100%. The friendliness and efficiency of the crew of the Dhinasha made this stay very pleasant by ensuring our comfort by full of small daily attentions.
Our guide, DOMi, took care of us and showed up, not only by leading us on remarkable spots, but also by his knowledge of the Maldives, modern and historical. Perfect organization that led us to surprises in surprises... for maximum relaxation and disconnection! Leaving this scenery and this atmosphere of the Islands was difficult. Conclusion: do not hesitate. Go ahead!
An excellent trip for families
An excellent family-friendly trip.
Very good organization... Thank you to all the crew and to Alex our guide, loved children and parents.
Thank you for the surprises of Christmas, the snorkelings and the dives.
We had a wonderful week
We had a wonderful week. We were on the Dinasha in "family." The three families were very well heard. The kids had a lot of fun with each other. All the exits snorkelling were beautiful: full of multicolored fishes, coral.
Thanks to Alex and Animadou who took us swimming with the sleeping sharks, dolphins and turtles. Thank you for the beautiful Christmas Eve party on the beach, for the gifts offered to the children, the Maldivian evening with all these beautiful flowers.
The crew was always smiling and attentive. Thanks to Aita, the Cook who feted us.
The boat was comfortable and clean, the rooms are made several times in the day. One last word for Alex our companion who shared his passion, knowledge of the Maldives and the seabed. Always available, smiling attentive and benevolent.
A dream private cruise to the Maldives!
We had the idea to take a private cruise on the Dhoni Stella listening to our friends tell us about their great journey.
The first email contacts with Jérome were very rewarding with an answer to our little practical questions. It was reassuring to have a Frenchman who knows the Maldives at your fingertips to put together a tailor-made program for you, given that this was our first trip to this country.
The boat crew was very professional, adapting the activities according to the weather, so that we could make the most of the good weather.
With our 2 children, this trip is memorable with snorkeling to be seen everything: turtles, manta rays, schools of fish, sharks (very nice, not even afraid), dolphins (on the surface)... We followed a whale shark for 45 minutes, they were there just for us, thanks Nasru for tracking. We've always been alone at anchoring in corners that the captain loves. We caught all the fish that Kumar (super chef-in-chief) prepared us in both sashimi and perfectly cooked. And I do not tell you the evening on a desert island, just for us .... to do it again as soon as possible. Thanks to the whole team and good wind!
A big thank you to Jérôme who took his time for the many questions we had.
The stay was just perfect with a crew at the top. The master word on the comments of Maldivian stays is often "dream" is good for this stay the Word does not exist.
This is our third visit to the Maldives and we are no longer planning on leaving otherwise than with this formula.
This is the first time I have commented on a stay on the Internet but with an experience like this and a professionalism like this one, we can only adhere.
Regarding the cruise, I am very satisfied. The stay was in line with my expectations.
About the services of the Dhinasha: the boat is comfortable and the crew is in small care. The food is tasty and varied. The evening "on the beach" will remain a beautiful memory.
Snorkeling side: I saw everything I hoped to see. The monitors are very pro and always available. Domi communicates his passion very well.
Thank you for this great adventure and I tell you soon
It was really perfect, Alex, very competent and extremely friendly, the boat, the smiling crew (and available, cooking, fishing,...), the other participants,
In short a great time to renew.
It was really perfect, our monitor,
It was beautiful. We saw everything: sharks (many!), mantas on the stations at 15m (for 60 minutes), benches of carangues, tunas and full of soft corals in foteyo and in the South (I love!). I came alone and the atmosphere on Board was very friendly on the Koimala . Thank you to the 2 guides for the choice of dives and for the animations. The crew was very friendly and helpful. really perfect. The boat is good and big thanks to the cooks and the bartender for the marguaritas. I come back as soon as I can....
What to say about this trip
What to say about this 9-day trip to the Maldives on the Koimala , awesome, 눇privite!!
The reception at the airport, transfer to the boat RAS
Brief arrival clear, luggage deposited in the cabin.
Lunch and first dive on the day of arrival, cool!
Then all the other perfect dives, the briefs and the Organization of the dives with the guides, always as efficient and pros.
The crew always polite and discreet.
For underwater wildlife, magical: mantas, rays, sharks, turtles, whale shark.... happiness.
If you are on a South Maldives cruise, think of me!!
Very good stay
The Adora is a very beautiful boat, luxurious and very well thought out to enjoy a breathtaking view of the atolls. The "diving Dhoni" is ideal for divers with equipment that stays at the station during the entire cruise and storage for cameras. Very good stay, good quality service of the entire crew. Assad, Ibbé, and Marc were excellent guides, we plunged into small committees, each at his own pace to enjoy the mantas and make a maximum of photos. Big thanks to Assad for his photo advice. I have very nice views of the sharks and the bench of jacks in the fotteyo pass. The 2 dives on Saturdays is a very good idea.
That's good. Very nice dive cruise in Maldives
I will check next year for the cruise to the extreme south.
We had a great week
We had a great week – everything was so good that I don't know where to start!
The boat is beautiful, I particularly enjoyed the solarium. The cabins are spacious and comfortable.
The crew members are nice, smiling, helpful. The food was delicious: the meals are varied and we ate very well all week. The cabins are cleaned regularly, everything was perfect at cleanliness level.
Alex and Carole accompanied us in snorkeling. The underwater funds are beautiful, we have enjoyed it well! We've seen sharks, turtles, rays, morays, and all sorts of fish. Not to mention the evening with the manta rays that came to keep us company at the back of the boat. Only the whale shark did not show.
Thanks to the guides for their welcome, their explanations (on the Maldives, on the coral and fish) and their flexibility.
And another big thank you for guaranteeing the departure of the cruise even after the cancellation of people who had registered.
Without any hesitation I will recommend this trip to my friends / family, I hope to be able to do another cruise like this one one day.
