Great diving some of the best diving in the world here in the Maldives Wonderful trip. Great diving some of the best diving in the world here in the MaldivesGreat diving some of the best diving in the world here in the Maldives.great tour guides. Would recommend.
Shark Diving Trip in Paradise! I had an amazing week with this boat, 4.5 stars. Overall- any issues were corrected if/when raised, we saw pretty much everything that was advertised, and if any dives were disappointing- it was because you can’t guarantee seeing certain sharks every time. (Tiger Shark site is pretty much a guarantee though). Pros: - 3 dives per day on nitrox, 4 dives on night dive day. - 4 dive guides for 14 divers - Beach barbecue evening on an idyllic island - Boat was always kept clean, rooms were cleaned and refreshed multiple times a day. - Strong air con, fans in room, sprayed to prevent issues with bugs. - People working on the boat we’re always helpful and willing to assist if I needed anything- Dive boat was roomy - put our gear there immediately on arrival, they washed our gear for us at the end of dives. They were ready and able to set up our gear for us or let us do it ourselves, depending on our preferences. - Meals were made to accommodate western and eastern taste and food preference. Always loads of healthy options, but also always desert. Best of both worlds. Cons: - Boat operator booked local flights but didn’t tell dive crew what time we were arriving, so ended up waiting at outside of airport in 30+ weather without anything to eat or drink for over 4 hours - Dive groups weren’t organised the first few days, so we ended up diving with our buddies but in a massive group - this was corrected once we raised the issue- Drinks on the boat are expensive - Had to pay extra for the Tiger Shark dives (apparently dive shops each have slots per day and they need to be purchased by the shops) - Maldives is expensive!

A great experience with a great crew. Outstanding! I had a great week diving with Blue Horizon! The crew and dive guides are outstanding and nothing is too much trouble for them. The boat is well equipped and comfortable with plenty of space so it doesn’t feel crowded and every member of the crew is professional, hard working and attentive to guests.The dive sites are varied with opportunities to see incredible marine life and although sometimes challenging, the dive guides ensure everyone is well looked after and able to enjoy each dive. Safety is at the forefront of everything and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Blue Horizon to anybody looking to dive in The Maldives.

Maldives in the best possible way A very warm and welcoming crew which makes every effort to make your trip a memorable one, whether it be on the awesome and diverse dive sites or at the dinner table.Utterly spoilt by a very kind crew which bends backwards to pick the best timing and spots to see the marine life you dream to encounter on your dives. Very diverse and tasty food at every meal. Dive, eat, sunbathe, repeat!Thank you all. Highly recommended
A Great week on Horizon I came on this boat in 2022 I had such a good time. I decided to come back again with three other people that also did the trip in 2022. We did a similar itinerary calling at all the major stops, tiger, zoo, Manta point etc. We managed to see everything we wanted to except a whale shark.The crew on both the boats worked very hard. The chef was the same chef a year ago, and the white, as were the same as a year ago, so this shows that the boat runs in a fairly stable manner.
Amazing experience every time We have been aboard Blue Horizon 3 already 3 times, last time in November 2022. The boat is spacious and comfortable even with with 20+ divers aboard. The crew is very friendly and helpful, always eager to solve any problem. Also the chef and his assistants do an amazing job, so apart from wonderful diving adventure you also get a great culinary experience! The dive guides led by Nicole are very responsible and attentive, before every dive there is a detailed briefing, they always check if everything is ok while divers are gearing up before a dive and make sure that each dive is well planned and as safe as can be while the Dhoni crew help with the equipment. We were lucky enough to visit a lot of different dive spots and spot sharks (including whale, tiger and nurse), as well as mantas, rays, turtles, but also incredible coral reefs with beautiful micro creatures, wrecks, so each dive was interesting and memorable. You can really feel that everybody on the boat is trying to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. We made a direct booking and Ameer was very helpful in providing us with all necessary information and arrangements.

Жирный трип на яхте Круизная яхта HORIZON III построена в нулевых, но о качестве сервиса так не скажешь. Команда местных ребят отлично справляется со своими обязанностями. Каждый прием пищи уникален по своему, изыски в репертуаре шефа просто безграничны. Настоятельно рекомендую познакомится с персонажем по кличке «Шаби», искупает с акулами и скатами, покажет лучшие острова и составит интересную программу на этот день. Из минусов файфай который работает только в лобби и на втором этаже.

Very Pleased I booked a trip with the guys at Horizon III. I had the best time on the boat.The guides and the crew are very friendly. They showed us around whenever possible, and made an effort for everything to be easy for us.Now about the boat, the dives and overall service. I cannot stress enough how excellent the service is on board. The guides were very experienced and helpful, with a safety-first attitude. The cabins are cleaned every day, the food exceeded our expectations by a lot. Thanks guys!I highly recommend them 🙂

BEST LIVEABOARD EVER Words are not enough to describe our experience with Horizon III Maldives Liveaboard. Maldives is simply amazing, visibility is great. We were so lucky we saw turtles, sharks, rays and dozens of other smaller and bigger animals. The boat is very comfortable and nice and can easily accommodate 20+ pax without being cramped. The briefing was good, the food, the diving, the crew, especially Ranga has been very good. The crew is always there for whatever you might need them. The guides were very helpful. The food was in plenty, different options available. They catered to our dietary requirements really well. All in all It was a very good trip and I’d rate it a 5 STAR. There are ways to improve a few things but can’t really complain much about it. Important is the diving and how well the dives are managed.
