A perfect cruise!

A perfect cruise!
A comfortable boat, the Gurahali, a discreet and efficient crew and our guides (JC and Charlotte) welcoming and pleasant.
Ideal diving conditions, little wind, little current and crystal clear water on the East and South atolls (perfect for photographers)
Of course we had mantas, sharks of all kinds, yellow, blue, red, green and other fish...
Everything was gathered for this successful cruise
Thank you!!!

Best parts:Caring and professional guides
Worst parts:whale sharks did not show up

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.

Best parts:Absolutely everything was perfect
Worst parts:NOTHING

We'll be back!

Best parts:The welcome from the crew, the atmosphere created by the Gurahali guides, their humour and their desire to please us by searching for sites, each one more beautiful than the next.
Worst parts:The only negative point is that our stay was too short. If we are to return it will be with JC and Charlotte if possible.
