Very nice experience

I come back very happy from this experience, not liking too much the navigation (sick) I still enjoyed it. The team was great and so were the other co-travellers. Even if the bottom is unfortunately not so beautiful anymore, we were accompanied by lots of big and small fish of all colours.

Best parts:Guides top, crew top, boat top
Worst parts:too many sails

I recommend this snorkeling cruise!

Everybody was very nice, both the crew and the San guide who took care of us, as well as the other travellers. The boat was very beautiful and well equipped. My only downside was the cabin where you could hear the generator at night and it's pretty noisy. But that didn't stop you from sleeping.
The meals were excellent, the program very well organized: 2 snorkelling outings per day, rest times/navigation... The seabed abounds in fish, we will have even seen Manta rays, dolphins by hundreds, turtles, sharks and even a whale shark. Exceptional.
Baptism of diving with San which made me want to pass the 1st level.
Reception at the airport very good and reassuring when you are alone.

I recommend this trip!

Best parts:Crew program
Worst parts:Cabin a little noisy

Really great.

I didn't expect to enjoy this week on the boat so much (1000 times better than staying 5 days on 1 island)! It was really great. We never want for anything.
We'll have seen everything. Stingrays, turtles, sharks, and luckily hundreds of dolphins in two.
We have time to enjoy and at the same time we're never bored. We sail just the right way: regularly but never too long.

Best parts:The perfect concept, snorekelling 2 or 3 X/ day, the space on the boat, the kindness of the guides and the crew, the quality of the meals, and a great group.
Worst parts:Relatively spacious cabins but beds a little narrow... But it didn't ruin anything else.

I can only recommend

I can only recommend this trip. A magnificent stay which, beyond the underwater wonders that I have observed every day in snorkeling (rays, turtles, dolphins, sharks, corals, multicolored fish...) allowed me to disconnect at 100%. The kindness and efficiency of the Dhinasha crew made this stay very pleasant by ensuring our comfort with lots of small daily attentions.
Our guide, Domi, took care of us and proved to be up to the task, not only by leading us to remarkable spots, but also by his knowledge of the Maldives, modern and historical. Perfect organization that has led us from surprise to surprise...for maximum relaxation and disconnection! Leaving this scenery and atmosphere of the islands was difficult. Conclusion: do not hesitate. Go ahead! Go ahead!

It was a fabulous magical break that I recommend to everyone!

Back a month ago, we still have an intact memory of this paradise week in the Maldives!!!! We were welcomed by a crew remarkable for their 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: so much on the different snorkelings (we could go swimming among the dolphins!!! we saw turtles, manta rays, baby sharks and a multitude of multicolored fish!!! ) that to delight our taste buds (the chef is exceptional... you have to come to taste his dishes... they are... at the height of what our eyes have discovered underwater!...!!!!!!! thank you again to all the crew and more particularly to our two instructors: Alexandre and Rama... to the chef Aita as well as to the other members of the staff.

It was a fabulous magical break that I recommend to everyone!

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.....

We had a wonderful week.

We had a wonderful week. We were on Dinasha as a "family". The 3 families got along great. The children had a great time with each other. All the snorkelling outings were beautiful: full of multicolored fish, corals.
Thanks to Alex and Animadou who took us swimming with sleeping sharks, dolphins and turtles. Thank you for the beautiful Christmas Eve evening 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. Thank you to Aita the cook who regaled us.
The boat was comfortable and clean, the rooms are made several times during the day. One last word for Alex, our guide, who shared with us his passion and his knowledge of the Maldives and the seabed. Always available, smiling attentive and caring.

A great adventure

Concerning the cruise, I am very satisfied. The stay was in line with my expectations.

About the Dhinasha's services: the boat is comfortable and the crew is taking care of itself. The food is tasty and varied. The "on the beach" evening will remain a beautiful memory.

On the snorkeling side: I saw everything I was hoping to see. The monitors are very professional and always available. Domi communicates his passion very well.

Thank you for this great adventure and I look forward to seeing you soon

Very nice snorkeling cruise in the Maldives

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 kind, 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 in terms of cleanliness.

Alex and Carole accompanied us on snorkeling. The seabed is magnificent, we enjoyed it! We saw sharks, turtles, rays, morays, and all kinds 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 didn't show up.
Thanks to the guides for their welcome, their explanations (on the Maldives, on corals 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.
