“When you get on this wonderful boat, take your shoes off, put them away for the entire week, and then grab the welcome drink that comes with a smile and… Breathe. You are about to live the most exciting experience of your life. No kidding. My favorite dives where incontestably the Manta Point, the Kuda Giri ship wreck and Maayaa Thila respectively for the most stunning and biggest manta I could ever steadily observe, the amazing intact ship wreck and the most intense night dive ever with at least 10 reef sharks hunting for food and one massive barracuda looking for his dinner as well. The many other dives were also all stunning in different ways. Nothing could have made this whole trip any better.
The ship is great, the rooms are spacious, air conditioned and with en-suite bathroom. The dining and seating area are spacious. The staff if always prompt and keen to go out of their way to help you in the best possible way. They are polite, have good manners but are also super friendly if you are keen for a talk.
It was definitely one of the most thrilling week of our lives – my husband sure agrees on everything stated above. Fully recommending anyone reading this to go ahead with their booking, you sure will enjoy!”

“As soon as we arrived on the MY Sharifa we were greeted with warm welcomes and big smiles. We had a great time on this boat, everybody was very respectful. The food was outstanding, you can take this as a quality guarantee as we are very picky and healthy eaters. The space on the boat is efficiently divided and the rooms are great, with ensuite.
Diving equipment was okay, no more, no less. I think some stuff could be traded for newer material. The diving dhoni was great, well organized and always settled for the next dive. The diving staff was nice and professional, it was a pleasure to dive with them for several days. The Maldives are wonderful, both on land and in the sea world.
It has been a wonderful holiday and we would do it all over again for sure. We will highly recommend this type of holiday to our closest friends as well.“
