Beautiful boat and great 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 a very nice weather and an itinerary in the great South of the Maldives. The dive was just outstanding and we saw mantas, a lot of sharks and lots of fish of all kinds. The room is luxurious and huge for a boat. We thank the guides for their 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 dolphins...

Have a nice 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 remains at the station throughout the cruise and storage for cameras. Very good stay, good quality of service for the whole crew. Assad, Ibbe, and Marc were excellent guides, we dived in small groups, each at his own pace to enjoy the mantas and take as many pictures as possible. Many thanks to Assad for his photo advice. I have very nice views of the sharks and the school of jacks in Fotteyo Pass. The 2 dives on Saturday is a very good idea.

All good stuff. Very nice diving cruise Maldives

I'll look next year for the cruise to the far south.

What happiness...

Everything was perfect from our arrival at the Maldives airport: transfer, boarding, dives; until the moment of departure...I was hoping that time would pass more slowly and I tell you that you should take advantage of it from the very first moments.

Very nice dives with a lot to see: manta rays, sharks, whaleshark, macro life, ghost pipe fish, crabs, turtles, eagle rays, stingrays, a profusion of fish varieties ... etc etc etc ... too much to mention. Great dive guides, delicious meals served as 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 the Adora and the agency Sous l'Océan which took care of everything. The staff was professional and very dedicated.

We are so happy we chose this cruise ship. If we come back, we certainly won't look any further. I highly recommend the agency and love it.
