The Carpe Vita is a beautiful boat, luxurious in every way. Spacious cabins, comfortable common areas with air conditioning and enough seating for all the passengers. The crew was friendly and helpful, the divemasters were patient with divers at all skill levels and were excellent critter finders.
We dove North and South Male Atolls, North and South Ari Atoll and Vaavu Atoll. The diving was spectacular: something for everyone, spotted eagle rays, Manta rays, whalesharks, grey & white tip reef sharks, turtles, napoleon (bumphead) wrasse and huge schools of reef fish. Along with the big stuff, there were plenty of anemones of all colors, healthy soft corals and hard corals, nudibranchs, bubble shrimp, coral crabs, mantis shrimp and the usual eels and lobster.
The wall dives were beautiful beyond words, so much life and diversity. The conditions were perfect all week, we were able to do drift dives, reef hook dives in channels while looking for sharks (we found them!) and were fortunate to have mantas seek us out for a night dive and then another night dive with nurse sharks, that was probably my favorite of the entire trip.
This trip was wonderful and one that I will repeat, the only change will be that I make sure it's a 10-day trip instead of just seven.
