Booked a 1-day diving and snorkeling trip with Ben for my parents and myself, but received the not-so-good news that the boat captain was not available the morning of the trip !
Ben was so apologetic about it, and he went above and beyond to look for another boat captain (which was difficult as it was the eve of a very big holiday in Maldives). Luckily his boat captain came back and we managed to make a trip in the afternoon !
My mother was a bit fearful of going snorkeling as she does not swim, but Ben and his colleague, Suag, were so nice and patient with her, convincing her to give it a try. They even had a float for her to hold onto with one hand, and the other hand to hold onto Suag !
My father was so pleased with his 2 dives as he managed to see a family of Manta Rays !
Thank you for the wonderful experience and will definitely go back to dive and snorkel with you again ! (:

I did a couple of days shore diving with Ben who lives locally and has been diving here for many years with an experienced boat crew. Excellent safety, good dive briefings and good value pricing makes Dune Diving a top pick for local shore diving.

I had a wonderful day with the team of dune Maldives diving. We went on two amazing fun dives. Great service, gear is in perfect condition and nature at it’s best. Two beautiful mantas were circling around us!

I can highly recommend that center, I felt really comfortable diving with them. They really know the dive sites around here and made sure that I could enjoy the day. Thank you Ben, I had a great time.

Cool guy who made our dive in Maldives a pleasant experience! Very professional, caring and attentive. We will definitely be back and there will be no other place for any diving experience and/or lessons other than with Ben! See you soon Ben! We didn't get to take a pic with you but we will soon...
And thanks to Christina (from Cruise Maldives) who recommended Ben to us!

I lost words to describe how great Dune diving center to me, because I booked 2 dive for the day. When I showed up next morning for the dive, I was the only diver that signed up for that day and they still take me on the boat and did my dives. And the diving experience in Maldives is breathtaking and wonderful. Great diving staff, easy going, and nice Conversations. It’s was so nice experience I signed up for two more dive and I can’t believe I was the only person diving that day. Would recommend to anyone and reasonable price.

I spent a week on Soleil II, and was impressed by the quality of the boat for the price. The food was excellent, and so was the diving and the guides. There is plenty of space on top decks to hang out in between diving. It's like a floating resort. Highly recommended!

We booked a weeks diving on Soleil 2 and it was one of the best weeks of scuba diving that I have had anywhere in the world.
The boat is very spacious and well equipped. We had a large master cabin which was bigger than many hotel rooms that I have staying in.
The crew and dive guides were excellent, attentive, helpful and very knowledgable.
The diving was out of this world.
Fantastic !!!!

Huge shout out to Dune Maldives for my wonderful Maldives experience. I dove with the Dune team for a week on a liveaboard (15+ dives). Each dive was well planned and carefully executed with a lot of fun and excitement. They are great at assessing everyone's skill levels, and made sure everyone felt confident underwater. Truly appreciate Axel Barré and Loleau Dureau at Dune Maldives for guiding me, a.k.a. keeping me alive underwater next to turtles, octopus, sharks, mantas, and everything in between.
