Customer Review

“The service was really good, we booked directly with them and they always responded promptly and with details. We were a big group of 14 so we had the boat for ourselves. Here’s an extensive list for all the huge must you can find on that vessel.

-Rooms are spacious for a boat and they all have their own private ensuite bathroom.
-There’s a big dining area, one bar inside and one outside plus lots of chairs and couches to chill on inside and out.
-Drum roll for this one… A jacuzzi sits on the upper deck! This was purely fantastic!
-The food: variety and good taste is good to summarize.
-The BBQ on a pristine island. We had cocktails, played in the sand, had a volleyball matchup. We had fresh fishes from the sea, grilled to perfection and served with yummy side dishes.
-We dove 3 times everyday, all the dives were great and the underwater world was beautiful to explore in the Maldives.
-The massage room! Many of us had a massage and that was a must after long days of diving.
-The dive boat is separate from the main boat and just follows everywhere. That’s great cause that makes more room on the main boat and keeps it clean!

Some improvements that could be done ?
-I did not mind but some people in our group did, the wifi was not working for the whole week.
-The air con in some of the room was not working properly, they sure should fix that.
-If you like cozy mellow mattresses, I am afraid you will find their beds pretty harsh.
-If you are environmentally conscious and a bit picky on it, like me, you won’t like the fact that they use individual litres of water… They should definitely get big gallons.”

-Alina, Joe and friends.

“A fantastic time we had on board the MV Sachika! The diving dhoni was spacious and well organized, makes everything quick and easy. The dive master team was always willing to go out of their way to help divers. The briefings are great, plenty of useful informations were given. The crew is professional and also fun to be around. The main boat was spacious as well and comfortable, I have to specify that we were only half the capacity. This adventure was part of our honeymoon getaway and we were able to get romantic features on the boat like a private dinner on a deck and they have a hot tub and offer massages so we made the best out of it. The dives were, of course, a divers paradise. Top notch!”

  1. What a wonderful experience we just had! Boat was cleaned and well maintained. There’s a bit of luxury touches that are much appreciable such as a spa, 2 bars and lots of cozy lounges to relax on. One thing was awkward though, the bartender was also the massage lady so if you have non-divers in your group they are probably hanging more at the bar or getting massages and then you find yourself in a lack of service one way or another.

    I am a diver but I don’t like doing more than 2 dives a day so I was snorkelling a lot and that was perfect as well. Great dives, great snorkelling. The second boat that follows the Sachika is a great feature. Would go back tomorrow.

  2. The team is nice, friendly and funny! They spiced up everyone’s trip by their sense of humour and the many stories they can tell from their job! In a more technical way : the boat is well organized and clean, the diving gears are of good quality and well taken care of, the safety was always the priority, the guides had good knowledges of their environment and their briefings were done thoroughly.

  3. Amazing :) I travelled to the Maldives with three friends for a 10 day break…. 7 of which we spend on Sachika (7-14th May 2016). We had the best time. Giacomo and Ali were our guides – we spent most of our time with Giac who was really relaxed and considerate of our group – if we wanted to do our own thing, we let him know so he didn’t worry about us too much :) The rest of the crew were fantastic – we particularly liked Jonny who made each and every dining experience fun – polite and funny and he really made us laugh – super attentive :) I also really rated Ali (?) who I think was a DM on the trip. We saw sharks on probably every dive, sooooo many sharks!! Mantas, turtles, sting rays, eagle rays, nudibranchs… EVRYTHING!! <3 On board we shared two of the suites and found them to be really luxurious and comfortable – it was nice to walk up the wooden staircase every night to our four post bed :) I had read before I went that once I had taken this trip I wouldn't be able to consider it a 'once in a lifetime trip', because I would want to do it over and over… they were right! :) Thanks Sachika & Co xxx
