The perfect way to bring in the new year!Verified review

My friend and I had the most fantastic time on board and diving with Carpe Vita to bring in the new year 2019. Yes, it was more luxurious than we needed - we booked after some cheaper deals had gone - but the fact that on board everything is perfect made this the most relaxing holiday I've ever had. The (all local) dive guides were friendly and welcoming, briefings comprehensive and safety underwater top notch. As for the diving itself, we saw everything we could have wished for on this trip. Highly recommended.

Special huge thanks to dive masters for discovering the beauty of Maldives underwater. The mantas and sharks dives were absolutely outstanding! Very special help goes to Steven W., who equipped us with marine biological knowledge and made our stay not only relaxing, but also with the purpose! Highly recommend the boat! Thanks! Natalia
