There are a lot of bad dive centres out there! This is NOT one of them! Very knowledgeable, professional staff and good fun too - especially Ricky. Great variety of dive sites and trips to choose from. Also if you want manta rays Baa Atoll in early September is where you'll find them 😄

Due to a bad diving experience, I was very nervous about diving at Reethi Beach. Sea Explorer dive team assured me that I was in safe hands and that they would help me to regain my dive confidence. Wow what an amazing team, first Robert with his confidence boosting talk, then Patrick with a try out dive session then Tania... More

Enriched by a wonderful and evenly mixed European and Maldivian dive team. We pre-booked the 6 day unlimited dive package, which we completed during our 10 day holiday. The centre has a large tidy & clean kit room, wash tanks, hot outdoor showers, loos & plenty of kit for hire. Upon arrival you get allocated a kit box. They transport... More

Nothing was left to chance. They changed dive sites as required, especially as the current was too strong. we took the 6 day unlimited dive... More

Really enjoyed several days diving with the SeaXplorer dive instructors. Fab dives on the house reefs and boat dives, saw some amazing fish species including on one dive three nurse sharks, sleeping thank goodness!, in a cavern. Dived with Anna, Adrian, Sappe, Mohan, Tom and Abdul and all proved to be fantastic guides and instructors. I am grateful for the... More

Did the full day snorkelling trip at Reethi Beach with Sea Explorer. Great experience included rescuing a turtle trapped in fishing net and snorkelling with feeding manta rays. Visited 3 sites in the day, great coral and fish in the first location, and good coral but poorer visibility due to tides in the other and less fish. Was definitely the... More

I can't say enough good things about Sea Explorer Dive Shop. The owner Robert has the best staff. The dives start on time. The dive briefing is accurate they accommodate all levels of divers. I did ten dives while I was there and everyone was better than the previous. The last was my first night dive off the house reef... More

The dive centre is well run, and caters for all levels. There is no hard sell of packages, but they are all there if you want them. The team also do snorkelling, and they do it very well. From a daily free guide to the house reef, to night snorkelling and trips to see turtles and manta rays. They care... More

The dive centre was incredible and staff were so professional but also friendly. The diving was quite good but visibility was poor. Snorkelling was much better as the visibility was very good. We snorkelled and dived with Manta Rays among other things, which was an experience I will never forget. We saw a few species of fish and critters that... More
