This was the only dive shop in Maafushi that responded to emails or Whatsapp messages which is why I chose them initially. They were very clear about the pricing policy and when it came to paying there were no surprise extras or taxes. Even though they were very busy with a large Norwegian tour group they made time for me to have individual tuition with senior dive instructor Adham and I successfully achieved my Open Water Diver Certificate and then had another 5 dives. All the dives were interesting. I saw a shipwreck, sharks, mobular rays, eagle rays, turtles, black and white and other corals and many many many reef fish. The dive guides were all qualified trained instructors as you would expect and they strictly maintained safety protocols at all times. All the staff I met with were friendly and helpful. I had a very positive experience and would happily recommend Maldives Passions both for diving lessons and recreational dives.

The worst company I have ever seen. They have 3-4 employees, none knows his work. I asked for photo and video, did diving, then learnt that nobody informed diver for taking photos and videos, the diver said me come back tomorrow, we'll do again and take photos. I went back the next day, they said: oh you have flight today, we can't. But they knew that I had a flight. And the man says:Madam, the problem is solved, I asked: how? He said: You will not do payment for taking video and photos. I didn't know what to reply to so stupid sentence. Even didn't do any discount for satisfying customer. Briefly, professionalism, business and this company are separate each other.

An excellent center for scuba diving. During our stay on Maaffushi and Dhiffushi, we visited several centers that offer diving services as well as open water diver. I liked the approach, clear and articulate English of the local instructor (Suhhom Hassan) which is why I chose this licensing center. I didn't repent. Positive experience, with SSI OPEN WATER DIVER certificate.

After contacting a few dive centres in Maafushi I ended up initially going with another company which turned out to be a mistake. I was messed around and had dives cancelled so ended up walking into Maldives Passions and Marc was able to take us out within the hour.

For the next week, Marc and the rest of the team looked after us and showed us some amazing dive sites, with Kandooma Thila being the best.

As we were diving every day, we were able to have a say in where we dived but also took recommendations from Marc on what would be best for that day.

Everything with Maldives Passions was very easy and we were very well taken care of.

Don't make the same mistake I did, just go straight to Maldives Passions!
