Un bateau confortable, le Gurahali, un équipage discret et efficace et nos guides (JC et Charlotte) accueillants et agréables.
Des conditions de plongée idéales, peu de vent, peu de courant et une eau cristalline sur les atolls Est et Sud (parfait pour les photographes)
Evidemment nous avons eu les mantas, les requins de toutes sortes, les poissons jaunes, bleus, rouges, verts et les autres…

La croisière s’est parfaitement passée.

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.

Les plus :Absolument tout a été parfait
Les moins :RIEN
