“This is the second time we've done this trip, and we'd do it again as it's perfect for a bit of "down time" after a more arduous holiday elsewhere in Asia. We think this is a jewel in Explore's portfolio - it is exceptional value for money, and in our view the very best way to see the Maldives.”

“The entire cruse was brilliant from day one and I was really sad to leave the Maldives on Sunday; so much so that I shall be booking another trip to go back same time next year. To be honest I was a little apprehensive about the trip as there appeared to be too much downtime on the itinerary however how wrong was I? The pace of the trip was perfect (snorkeling 2 or 3 time per day with downtime in between), the snorkeling was excellent; the food on board fantastic (great chef) and the relaxed experience and uniqueness of the Maldives was just what you needed to get over the cold winter months in the UK. I saw more sea life that I imagined and had a fabulous time aboard the Dhoni. Special thanks to the tour leader (Shan) and the entire boat crew who were great. Some tips:You dont need an adaptor plug as the plugs on the boat take UK plugs.Wear a bandanna if you are thin-on-top as when snorkeling your head can get burnt.Dont overload yourself with too many changes of clothes; swimwear, a rash vest, shorts, track-suit trousers (for visiting the islands) and t-shirts are all you need.”
