Comments The Carpe Novo provided an amazing dive experience. The accommodations were top notch and spacious (such a surprise!). The dive briefings were thorough and the DM's very safe and knowledgeable.
There were times that the current was....marked...and not for sissies. The variety and numbers of marine life were amazing. The downside; the corals mostly look bleached and stressed. There were some thilas where the corals were still vibrant, though. Mostly they were the places with marked current. The visability was ok but not stellar. Getting to the Maldives from the US can be long and trying but is certainly worth a visit.
