I wanted to do a Open Water Course for long time so when we booked trip to Maldives I started looking for a dive school to do it. Luckily I found Maldives Passions, contacted Marc and had everything arranged even before we got to Maafushi. Once we got there everything was simple. Went to their office and from the beginning had a feeling tthat we have made the right choice. Neya, Sul and Adham were very professional from the start, explained everything that I needed to know about the course and adventure was ready to start. Sul was our instructor and everything he did and explain was easy to understand, from theory and skills we did in the Maafushi lagoon all the way to dives we did in ocean. Not for one moment have I felt insecure about anything, they showed us some great diving sites and most of all every time we walked into their office we felt welcomed and sort of like friends. After finishing OWD course I have booked more dives with them that were a lot of fun with fantastic and friendly atmosphere on their boat. My wife, who was uncertain about diving in the beginning did Discovery Scuba with Adham and loved it so much that she is going to take her OWD course. Maldives Passions is the precious gem of Maafushi island because they do their job as their name says, with passion and I would recommend them highly to anyone who wants to go diving while in Maafushi. We'll be coming back for sure...:)

We came for an OWD course for my 2 kids (13 and 15) Their guide was Shuhoom (or Sum in short) He was amazingly patient and helpful, especially considering that English is not our first language. The dives in the open ocean (I dived with them) where amazing, and the second guide that came with us (Niya), was amazingly patient and funny. Overall an amazing and professional team! We will come back for sure...

If you are looking for a diving center that will provide both 100% professionalism, the best human personal experience and finally the best price we found on the island. Neya and Sool were amazing dive guides both on shore and in the water. They took us on complicated dives and compensated for our lack of experience with a 1to1 mentoring ratio. By the end of our stay in Maafushi we felt that in a few days we didn't only learn diving, but made new amazing friends, learned a lot about Maldive people and culture and finally also fell in love with the world of diving and all the amazing marine life we met, such as sharks, turtles, eagle rays and many more Also worth mentioning that the great team at Maldives passion took the liberty of taking many pictures and videos of us under water and transferred everything to our phones, free of charge. One last special thing to mention was the huge amount of help we got from our friends arranging some complicated travels from Maafushi and even after we were gone, they still used there local contacts and arranged travels for us. Some places cannot be recommended enough and Maldive Passion is one of them! Thank you Neya and Sool!
