I can say from the bottom of my heart how patient and superb these guys are. Their patience , willingness to help and the level of service is second to none. Gina helped me back to diving after an initial hesitation. I then did three dives with Coco , wise and patience beyond his years. Their professional approach where safety... More

From the start of my interactions (email in advance of arrival) to meeting and diving, I have to say I was impressed. Every step of the way, these guys were professional, courteous and fun! I had only been diving a short time, but they took everything into consideration, helped me improve my skills, and had a great time, with some... More

The divemasters were really friendly, knowledgeable and had a safety first thinking. They even helped me finalize my mask cleaning with special treatment to reduce fogginess. I did my open water course here. The dive sites nearby were nice: we saw a big manta ray, there was a wreck dive site and of course friendly sharks every now and then.... More

We were new to diving and were thoroughly looked after. The staff were amazing, competent, supportive, and professional. I would recommend the team for the experience they provided and the total commitment to our safety and well being. Of Course Nihal was my favourite, but Adam and coco were equally amazing.

They made me feel at home and part of the family! As a scuba diving instructor myself, it was important to see that they place a strong focus on the safety, comfort and enjoyment of... More

As an experienced diver I visited many dive centers in all the world, but only in this one i felt like I was in my home. Very friendly staff, awesome diving spots, good equipment and safe diving by the most experienced divers in the island.

It's our second time diving with Maldives Passions; first was in Oct 2014. Impressed with their professionalism and we did our SSI Scuba Diver certification with them this time. Clear explanations, good focus on safety and we shared lots of laughter. Would love to be back again (but only for "halal fun"! - inside joke)

Seeing you girls twice was DEFINITELY not enough, and we hope to see you again (preferably without having to wait for another 2 years this time) for either your Open Water and/or Advanced Adventurer :) It's always fun to have you around, and next time we'll go for 100% "haram fun" (inside joke). Take care & keep diving !! :) More
