Worst diving school I have ever been to. Really bad communication and absolutely no instructions at all.. they never knew to which diving site they were going and they didn't gave you the possibility to say where you wanted to go or what you wanted to see. When you where all geared up that's when they told you where you... More

We had a great experience With Maafushi Dive and Water Sport. We completed out open water certification with them and then did two dives every morning for the week we stayed on Maafushi.

Maafushi Dive is the best choice if you're planing to discover underwater beauty of Maldives. The team is very professional and friendly. They are serious in the matter of security which is of course great and fully open to joke, have fun and play when on the surface. I made my AOWD in 2016 with them and come back on... More

As it was my birthday and I wanted to spend it underwater, and although I came mid day, I decided to join the afternoon dive. It was on a sandy bottom which was not good at all. Waste of time and money. I later found out that they go to such site for newbies to practice their skills. I just... More

Dear wandering_dive_geek Thank you so much for taking time to review us, we much appreciate your detailed observations. We are sorry if we didn't inform that the afternoon dive was more relaxing one, as highlighted by you, in the afternoon we accommodate DSD hence the site is easier, however it has also nice reef with lot of fish and other...
