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 as much of this week on the boat (1000 times better than staying 5 days on 1 Island)! That was really great. We never miss anything.
We'll have seen everything.. Rays, turtles, sharks, and by chance hundreds of dolphins in 2 times.
We have time to enjoy and at the same time we never get bored. We sail just as it should: 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 nice cruise, gorgeous dives with mantas and whale shark to the program, very nice group and boat (the Gurahali ) at the top with instructors who know very well the sites, comfort and excellent meals during the entire cruise. See you soon!!
Beautiful cruise on the Stella I
We really enjoyed the boat's standing ( Dhoni Stella I) as well as the extreme benevolence of all the crew who has been at little care throughout the cruise.
Great weather, very quiet sea and lots of fish in snorkeling.
We are very happy with our trip.
A great congratulation to the Cook Kumar who feted 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 staff were very friendly and helpful. By specifying before the arrival the style of cooking we liked as well as the drinks, we were delighted by the restoration aboard the Dhoni Stella . For us it was local cuisine (not too spicy for our kids) and fresh fish. The "Chef" is a master in the preparation of raw fish that we have fished with family with the invaluable help of 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 our arrival at the Maldives Airport: transfer, boarding, dives; until the time of departure... I was hoping that time would pass slower and I tell you that you have to take advantage of it from the first moment.
Very nice dives with a lot to see: manta rays, sharks, Whaleshark, macro life, Ghost fishes, crabs, turtles, eagle rays, stingrays, fish varieties galore.. etc etc. too much to mention. Great diving guides, delicious meals served as buffet when we return from each dive... and we met other divers aboard with whom we will travel with pleasure...
We really had a very good experience with the Adora and the Agency under the ocean that took care of everything. The staff were professional and very dedicated.
We are so happy to have chosen this cruise ship. If we come back, we will certainly not be looking further. I highly recommend the Agency and the adora.
Beautiful boat and great dives
It was our first cruise, so we are not experts.... but we really enjoyed the Adora , guides and cruise. It was in March with a very nice weather and a route in the far south of the Maldives. The dive was just remarkable and we saw mantas, a large number of sharks and a lot of fish of any kind. 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 southern atolls. We sailed at night to dive in the early morning in the passes of the atoll of Huvadhoo and swim among the dolphins...
We saw everything aboard the cruise Adora : mantas, many sharks and 2 whale sharks in the evening behind the boat for more than 4 hours... really great memories and amazing pictures with my go pro camera
Amazing experience in the Maldives
brilliant! The Amba is currently the only diving boat in operation in the Northern Maldives, so the dive sites were not crowded with boats and divers.
Sleeping on deck above the beautiful star. It was wonderful. The cabins are very good as well as the meals!
Best diving week
The crew was really very professional and friendly. Especially in the kitchen 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 a lot of fun and will come back for the special Hanimadhoo at Raa Atoll.
A hint, the currents are sometimes strong enough (full moon), think to take away a hook for Reef, although it is also available on the Amba .
The cabins are very spacious and even the bathroom was much larger than most of the cruise ships. The crew is fantastic and does everything possible for the happiness of the customers. The main living room is spacious and comfortable. Guests 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
Fifteen mantas on a station in Hanimadhoo. These dives were fantastic. Lots of fish on all the reefs.
And no other boats!
Everything was wonderful!
Everything was wonderful! From the plate, to the seabed, a feast for all the senses! So thank you to the crew, of a delicacy and kindness 눇privite and thanks to our scuba divers (Charlotte and JC) that we followed the eyes closed... for my part, 2nd trip, same dates, same boat (the Koimala ) we are constantly being surprised!!!
Very nice snorkeling cruise, beautiful fish
Very nice cruise beautiful colorful fishes swimming with mantas rays. Hot water and beautiful lagoons. Very good guide very nice and available. Very secure frame for snorkeling
Cruise on top!!
Cruise on top!! No complaints, no negative points actually!
Great cruise with Amba !
An absolutely awesome 10-day dive cruise! Everything happened in a simple and fluid way, since Nicole's reception at the airport. The diving program was organized in such a way that they were surprising and dazzling each time (grey sharks, white tips, mantas rays, eagle rays, nurse sharks galore) and even 2 whale sharks, one in day diving and the 2nd of night around the Amba . 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 on the floor! Maldivian specialties often based on tuna or chicken, vegetables, rice or pasta, fruits, cakes... Enough to fill the hunger dug by the 3 daily dives. One thing is for sure, impossible to lose a gram during these 10 days!) But we're going to be in every point of view.
Jérôme who has taken care of the reservation is a very efficient and available correspondent.
The cruise has gone perfectly.
The cruise has gone perfectly. The boat, the Gurahali , is beautiful, with all the comforts. The crew of the Gurahali like the diving boat is of an incredible kindness, of great availability. The meals were delicious thanks to saman, talented chef. The dives were all more beautiful than the others. Jean-Charles and Charlotte our DM guides of dives during this stay were very professional, welcoming and warm. The diving boat was spacious. The rhythm of the days was ideal. Visits to the islands of sinners 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 so that there was 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 Gurahali is top. A big thank you to JC and Charlotte for their welcome, humor 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 coaching
Very professional snorkeling while remaining very benevolent and very friendly.
Equipage identical to the small care
Number of people low 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 came back enchanted, ready to go again.
Bravo to the whole team of under the ocean.
Everything is perfect.
Everything is perfect. Adorable team. The Amba is a great boat. Extra dives. Super happy.
Thank you very much for your seriousness and your efficiency.
See you soon. And happy year to you.
Nice cruise, spoiled a bit by a bad Visi but you are for nothing 🙂
Sebastian and Rebecca on top, great crew.
Icing on the cake a dive with a beautiful 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 coaching and crew for the quality of service
I regret a little the festive aspect (without excess) that could have animated this trip: a little aperitif and a little music in the evening on the upper deck would have been very pleasant....
everything is magical
no notice everything is magical
diving to the pass and to the big (sporty)
Mega top, Stephane
everything is perfect, boat, kitchen, crew, dives, autonomy
Great trip, the boat was perfect for 10 people. Alex our guide has made us discover all the marine fauna without stress. Thank you very much!

a cuisto that made us vibrate the taste buds throughout the week 🙂 very varied and delicious food.
Our guide DOMi, a great enthusiast, very pro in his knowledge of the marine flora and fauna as well as in the history and culture of the country.
In short a week of total change of scenery, high in color and rich in discovery.
Thank you all!
I advise the discovery of this beautiful country through this formula.
To do and redo
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 would recommend this trip to my friends/family, I hope to be able to re-cruise like this one day.
