From the booking to the coordination of tourists to the counting and grouping of people: absolute nightmare as staff did not seem to know what was going on. Despite being more than half an hour early, there was another hour's worth of delay from the...More

A must visit when anyone visits Maldives. Whale Submarine experience was a great one. The guide directed us exceptionally well. It's a 45 minutes tour in the Submarine. Total time taken from and to Jetty is around 1 hour 30 minutes. What you can see...More

Thank you for your response. Whale submarine dives into natural waters and therefore the marine life, underwater current, visibility and many other factors are beyond the control of the pilot. Usually we turn the submarine and take passengers to the seabed and land the submarine....More
