trip report adora liveaboardIn March 2016 we made a Best of Maldives trip on board the Adora. A boat that was shaped after a yacht the owner once saw in Monaco and truly gave us all the comfort you could wish. Spacious cabins an everywhere light made the surface time just as pleasant as the dive time.

After a long time in Hulhumale today Alla and me stepped aboard the Adora. Hulhumale being the future suburb of Malé is still a work in progress and after a week in between the construction sites with noise and concrete dust at once we remembered why we are so long in Maldives. Arriving on board made us realize that this was the Maldives that concurred our hearts a long time ago.  Only stepping on board was enough to change our mood . . .  divemood!

As we had some late arrivals yesterday and we could not make the first dive on Sunday, the guides decided to start good with a day of 4 dives, spread out over 3 atolls. It wasn't easy to wake up after a long evening talking with our new Russian friend and perhaps even more than the one beer we spoke about, but we did it and had some amazing start of the week.

Diving makes hungry! Sometimes I wonder who is more in charge on a boat, the captain or the chef. Probably on a diving boat this is even more difficult to decide as it seems like hungry lions being led to their meal after every dive.

The day started  with an amazing  dive on the wreck of the MV Kudema. The ship was surrounded by schools of small fish and with rainbow runners around, hunting for them. You could just lie on your back on the sand and look at the spectacle above you for an hour. After a round around the wreck we then entered the wreck on the site through the big hole an went up to the deck. There we found two of the stonefish that always seem to be there and one gave me a beautiful shot by yawning straight to the camera.

After a couple of days on board, it became clear that it is comfortable and offers enough space to have your privacy if you want it. The air-conditioned lounge is big and you can always use a table an chair if you want for example to do some computer (making a dive movie) work. The bar area is well designed and big enough to be a place to hang out by itself.

The staff of the Adora and the Stingray II consists of 6 instructors and dive masters who work on the boats. The change now and then on which boat they are working, but it is pretty much always these six guys that make your dives great.

That's it, only this last day of diving and a pleasurable week on board of the Adora passed by in a breeze. Still the last day is there and even though this report did not come on the evening as we wanted (bad internet and a small movie to edit for you still), the day offered a lot.
