"My friends and I have been on the last 2 trips of the Carpe Diem from 16.10.20 - 31.10.20. I just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time. Many thanks to you and especially the guides and crew which are one of the best in friendliness and professionalism I have experienced. The way they handled everything under the given circumstances was just great. I hope that we will have a chance to return soon for more great adventures."

"So grateful that Terri at Deep Blue Adventure highly recommended your liveaboard and assured me of the great diving vacation I would certainly have. As a foodie(part of my job now and always) I was impressed by your culinary team and the excellent food we enjoyed at each meal. The baked whole Jackfish and exotic fresh fruit platter are frequently on my computer screen saver. Yes, even with the epic pictures I have of the sunset shark dive, manta dives, blue striped snapper schools, and the hundreds of photos I took of the Carpe Novo and the beautiful ocean morning, day and night as we cruised around the different atolls and saw views that most would only imagine. I could write pages of comments on how much I enjoyed this experience and I will take time to answer the survey sent, though I wanted to impress upon you how much I valued this trip and my interactions with your team throughout the 8 day journey. I will always recommend Carpe Diem highly and will look forward to a future visit in the not too distant future I hope! I will not even consider that there could be a better liveaboard company out there. Your team exceeded my expectations in each and every way. My stateroom was incredible too! Having spent most of my career as a hotel and venue general manager I know how difficult it is to host guests overnight and meet all of their needs. And, on top of it you had a wonderful team of expert and well trained dive masters that made me feel safe always. I am still following them on Instagram and having fun sharing my videos of the dives. My friends are so envious, lol."

"I have had the pleasure of running surf charters on board the Carpe Vita since it first set sail in 2011. I can honestly say that in the last 8 years we had nothing but amazing feedback from all clients that have been aboard for the Carpe experience. The boat has been meticulously designed and built to comfortably accommodate 20 people as it is a massive 125ft boat. 3 levels of cabins from Suites to Standard ensure a variety of luxury depending on your budget. The 14 crew look after your every need as all our guests want for nothing when on board. The meals are plentiful and healthy with an amazing kitchen team and the highlight is the alfresco dining and bar at the back of the boat. One of the highlights of my year is getting back on board the Carpe and I always bring more people each year to experience the majestic Carpe Vita. A big thanks to Agnes and her amazing team."

"We have attended the ship Carpe Vita for snorkeling only for many years.It has been great and we often goes with the Doni to the divesite with the divers, or with the dinghi to a nearby reef and have seen a huge variety of different species of both small and big marinelife, with lots of pelagic sharks and rays.The ship is wonderfull spacious and with very nice cabins and a faboulous crew. The food is excellent with many delicious dishes and a lovely wide selection of fresch fruit in the morning.It is absolutely recommendable to join the Carpe Diem fleet for fantastic snorkeling experiences.

"Carpe Diem is an amazing dive company that provides an outstanding diving experience in the Maldives. Each of my three trips with them has been exceptional. The food is delicious, the rooms are comfortable and quiet, the ships layout allows for both social and private time. The crew is there for anything you may need to have an exceptional time. And of course the diving is divine! I highly recommend Carpe Diem. "

"We’ve been chasing waves on Carpe Diem since 2017, our guests love the high level or service and well trained crew. The food is outstanding and Captain Ali's experience has no limits. With professional surf guides, generous fuel allowance and extended cruising range Diem get you to some of the best waves in the Maldives. Then there’s the diving and snorkelling, it’s world class. Don’t forget to throw in the fishing rod, the crew love fishing and everyone loves fresh Wahoo on the menu."
