"It’s 16th November and I just came back from my best trip ever!! One week on the Carpe Vita with my parents and it was a dream that came true, thanks to the crew we could experience the feeling of diving 3 times a day surrounded by incredibly big mantas, lots of tunas and other type of animals but, we also got the chance to dive with the biggest shark of the world, The Whale Shark!! In case it’s still on your bucket list, or you would like to go night diving with hundreds of nurse shark and stingrays, go to and book yourself a trip on one of their 3 liveaboards and I promise you won’t be disappointed.Thanks to all 3 of our dive masters Naathi, Ayya and Shaam, who helped me to get my Advanced Open Water Dive certificate and showed me every under water treasure available, thank you to the chef and his team for all the delicious meals after diving, the room boys for decorating the room the day my parents were married 28 years and of course thanks to captain Adam for taking care of every single detail and bringing us to all the beautiful dive sites.In short, it was an incredible trip, a dream that came true and I can’t wait to go back soon."

"As a producer and host for networks like Nat Geo Wild and Travel Channel,I've been around the globe a few times. As a traveler and a waterman, I've found that the Maldives is a premium bucket list destination that shares an equal amount of beauty and adventure (surfing, diving, fishing, etc.). So when I go into a place this special, I want to make sure I'm doing it the right way and that I don't miss ANYTHING. The Carpe Diem fleet is not only the best luxury vessels in the Maldives, but they are the best liveaboard experience I've ever had anywhere on earth. From the accommodations to the crew, this is the pinnacle of adventure travel. Do yourself a favor and seize the day with Carpe Diem!!!"

"I went on the Carpe Vita trip for 1 week. It has been my dream to experience a liveaboard in the Maldives and this dream did not disappoint! The staff, the boat, the dives and even the guests made the trip the best dive trip of my life. Cabins are super spacious. The food exceeded my expectations. The diving spectacular and guides were knowledgeable and professional. We saw almost everything: night diving with over nurse sharks, mantas, 4 whale sharks, sting rays, eagle rays and many other beautiful fish and Coral reefs. I would go back in the heartbeat. Special thank you to Agnes and Tina for making this trip so special! Bernie"
