Amazing Maldives diving on Carpe VitaVerified review

Very happy to have chosen Carpe Vita, fully equipped diving facilities, comfortable cabin, ample spread of food on every meal and most of all the professional crew members on board. The crew members go the extra mile to ensure our comfort throughout the journey while making great calls for some route changes in anticipation of bad weather . The dive guides are seasoned and well versed of each dive sites. We've seen Manta Ray, Eagle Ray, Mobula Ray, Grey Reef & White Tip Sharks and managed to snorkel with 3 whale sharks! Amazing experience!

Great experience with Carpe VitaVerified review

I dove with the Carpe Vita team (16th Oct to 23rd Oct 2022) via South Maalhosmadulu Atoll - Baa, North Ari Atoll and ends in South Ari Atoll - Alifu Dhaalu. The trip was very organized and well prepared. From Male, we flew to Dharavandhoo to meet the team and board the boat. After settled in, we did our check out dive. The first 2 days was raining a little, but that doesn't stop the dive plan. The weather seems to cooperate throughout the entire trips, the sun was bright and clear weather all the way. As for the dive experience, we were fortunate to see manta on our 1st dive. Lots of sharks, whalesharks, beautiful reefs and healthy marine ecosystem. Hanifaru Bay ($20 marine fees) was the highlight of the trip, with clear sky and bit of luck, we saw like almost 30 mantas!!! Our DMs was truly professional and very experienced (I would recommend). The remaining of the dives was truly splendid, exceeds my expectations (since its low season/winter season). The cabin was very comfortable (I stayed in the Deluxe room). The bathroom is very clean and good water pressure for the shower (Hot and cold water). The housekeeping team clean the bathroom on daily basis. However, the towels are not replaced on daily basis (Upon request). The food is buffet style. I have no complaint on the foods. A mix of variety (local and western) were served. And snacks were served in between dives. On the last night before heading to Male, we had BBQ dinner on a secluded island. It was great and quite special. The sunset scenery on the island were magical. On the last day of the trip before checking out (8.00am) breakfast was served, which is not very common on a LOB trips. However, I do appreciate it as you may get quite hungry when you're in the airport (although there's cafe and restaurants). After breakfast, they arrange the transfer to the airport (By Dhoni). Overall, the whole experience with Carpe Vita team was exceptional!!! I'm glad I booked the diving trips on this boat. The team was great, the DMs are very experienced and knowledgeable. In fact, I was thinking to to go on the next trip with Carpe Vita again.
