The staff at the dive shop were very helpful and professional. Stefania was our instructor and with her recommendation and help we were able to get Advanced Open Water PADI certification. She also help us to improve our diving skills. The shop is well equipped. They took us to the best diving spots in the area and we are returning with footage of sharks, manta rays, eagle rays, turtles, stingrays and many more.
We recommend this dive shop to anyone who visits Maafushi.

Heartfelt thanks to Federico for being with us during our first diving experience! He gave individual care to both of us during our dive and we felt extremely safe.
He was patient throughout the dive and gave us ample of time to get comfortable under water.
They are not on the main road and therefore not a lot of people know about the club but it should be everyone’s first choice especially if it is their first dive.
I would totally recommend them to anyone who’s interested in scuba in Maafushi.
Thanks guys, totally love you!! Hope to see you again sometime.

We only have an open water diploma (around 7 dives under our belt) and did 4 amazing dives with Neya. He took us to some great diving spots in Maafushi based on our skill level and what we wanted to see. Starting easy and progressing from there, since he thought we could handle it and he was right!

He was very clear with his briefings and what to expect throughout the dives, which really helped put us at ease.

He took some great videos and photos of us and shared them with us later in the day so that we could share our experiences with our family and friends.

Not only was he very kind and easy going, everyone at the diving centre shared the same characteristics and the boat rides to and from locations were fun.

The equipment was in great shape and trustworthy. We took our own masks and I had some problems with fogging, which they went the extra step to help and solve.

Definitely recommend going to this dive centre. We were definitely beginners and they made us feel comfortable and confident in the water.

Thank you Neya and Arena Diving Centre for a great two days! It won’t be easily forgotten.

We are from Thailand, and it was our first time in Maldives. We joined the Arena Dive Club for both scuba diving and free diving(counted as non diver). All of staffs there, Stefany, Fede, Neya and Habibi are super helpful, friendly and entertaining. We had very good and impressive time there. Rather than underwater life, we had unforgettable friendships from all of them. Last but not least, Habibi has made my trip more unforgettable!!! We will go back to see you again!
