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 great weather and an itinerary in the deep south of the Maldives. The diving was just outstanding and we saw mantas, lots 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 during the night to dive in the early morning in the passes of Huvadhoo atoll and swim in the middle of the dolphins...

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 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. Very nice dive cruise Maldives

I'll look into the far south cruise next year.

What a pleasure...

Everything was perfect from the moment we arrived at the 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 have to enjoy it from the very first moments.

Beautiful dives with lots to see: manta rays, sharks, whalesharks, macro life, ghost pipefish, crabs, turtles, eagle rays, stingrays, varieties of fish galore... etc etc.... too much to mention. Great dive guides, delicious buffet meals when we returned from each dive... and we met other divers on board with whom we will gladly go on trips...

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 glad we chose this cruise ship. If we come back, we will certainly not look any further. I highly recommend the agency and adora.
