If you love diving and want to get the most out of your trip to the Maldives, choose to travel on the Virgo Liveaboard.

We were able to cram 17 dives into one week of travel, and each and every dive was unique in some great way. The dive masters were professional, friendly and fantastic underwater, really showing us the best that every site had to offer.

We were impressed with how comfortable the accommodations were and also that the crew were so friendly and welcoming.

I travelled to the Maldives in January and made use of the Virgo Liveaboard to get as many dives in as possible.

Although the boat itself could use some updating, I was generally impressed with the crew, the food and the diving.

A major highlight was diving with mantas on one of the many night dive opportunities.

We really enjoyed the MV Virgo, the rooms are so comfortable, loved the toiletries, fresh fruit baskets and coffee in the mornings.

The crew were friendly and helpful, and buffet meals were to die for! But the highlights were the dive sites, just crammed with incredible reefs, thousands of colourful fish, and we swam with manta rays!
