Diving для всех Отзыв о детском дайвинге, что оказалось абсолютно реально организовать в Thoddoo Diving Center. Полный инструктаж, хорошее оборудование,сопровождение,безопасность, полное доверие - высокий уровень профессионалов! Если хоть один пункт был бы упущен, ребёнка бы не отпустила и сама не пошла..Здесь все сошлось, спасибо Анатолию! Подводный мир - бесконечная красота, жизнь и движение..Описать сложно, нужно видеть. А посмотреть на Мальдивах точно есть на что и на кого) Ещё раз спасибо за этот прекрасный опыт, мой и дочери (11 лет)!
Awesome diving We had four amazing dives in Thoddhoo and the nearby islands, the dive sites are stunning, teeming with all sorts of sea life. Anatolijs and his team were very helpful, skilled and friendly. I appreciate that they checked us out first in an easier dive before we went on to more complicated ones. If you're planning to go try to make arrangements early- the centre can get busy, and yet they dive frequently so there's enough diving opportunity. Overall unforgettable experience, looking forward to visit again!
Отличный дайвинг центр на Мальдивах Отличный дайвинг центр, в котором вас с нуля обучат дайвингу и покажут все прелести Индийского океана

Amazing relax diving experience In totaal 6 duiken gedaan op meerdere dive sites . Van begin tot het eind relax en goed geregeld. Goede apparatuur en kennis aanwezig. Goed advies over equipment om het duiken tot een ontspannen ervaring te laten worden. Fijne boot crew en mooie duikboot. Kortom een hele goede duikschool om een onvergetelijke ervaring op te doen!
Первое посещение Мальдив и первое погружение Очень хотелось попробовать поплавать с аквалангом. Решилась! На Тодду! С прекрасным инструктором Анатолием. Анатолий - настоящий профессионал своего дела: подробный инструктаж, отличное снаряжение и техническая подготовка погружения. Человек с прекрасным чувством юмора и постоянной улыбкой на лице и в глазах! При погружении и после (особенно впервые) взрослый человек получает самые восторженные, совершенно новые впечатления и ощущения при знакомстве с ранее недоступным подводным миром. Спасибо огромное Анатолию! С его помощью я осуществила свою давнюю мечту.
Вот я и стал дайвмастером!!!! Впервые попробовал дайвинг здесь, наТодду, под чутким руководством Анатолия в апреле 2017 года. Далее были две поездки сюда же, получил сертификаты ow и aow, затем rescue. И вот свершилось. Прилетел в ноябре 2019 года, три недели, и я дайвмастер! Толь. Спасибо тебе огромное что открыл для меня этот чудесный мир! Ты мой друг, наставник и вообще наш Вождь❤️🙏
perfektes Tauchen Es wird einem jeder Wunsch von den Lippen abgelesen. Kein Wunsch bleibt unerfüllt und das Riff um Thoddoo ist noch super intakt. Rashdoo ist sowieso immer einen Bootsausflug wert. Kann diese Basis nur weiterempfehlen. Die Guids sind alles super professionell und lieben ihre Arbeit.
Extremely exciting We had several diving sessions. Each of them was a great. We observed underwater life: turtles, sharks, stingrays, millions of fishes, we were lucky to meet whale shark. Pro Dive team is very professional and they have all neccessary equipment. We have kid of 10 years old with us and Anatoliy (Pro Dive Boss) made our experience and journey easy and memorable. Highly reccomend
Great diving, an amazing dive shop, and more! Just came back from a stay in Thoddoo. I was looking for some nice diving, and I ended up connecting with Anatolijs, who runs the Pro Dive Hydrotech dive shop. He made the entire trip so easy for me - he basically took care of not just the diving, but also my speedboat transfers to/from Thoddoo, and my lodging. I don't know how he does it, but he responds really quickly via Whatsapp. And this personal attention continued once I was on the island. He is very personable, a great storyteller, and an amazing divemaster. Had five great dives with Anatolijs. He and his staff make it a very enjoyable, non-rushed experience, with great equipment, excellent service and - of course - amazing diving. We saw manta rays (incredible!), sea turtles, sharks, moray eels, barracudas, 1,000 of fish, stingrays and more. Just really nice diving. Water is warm, coral is beautiful. In short, if you want to have a great diving experience, you have come to the right place!

Lady from the front desk was so busy with her phone that didn’t turn her face after I entered. She was sitting beside a big black old PC, highly unlikely she was a guest there. I didn’t want to disturb her more and just left that place. No sense to ask more about questions related with safety maybe next time she will be in a blue mood and organize your dive in a “wrong” way. Pretending that she was a visitor look awkwardly. Also you can find her on the photos 🙄

We did not have transportation to get from Thoddoo to Rasdhoo, and we took advantage of a tour from this company; everything was perfect.Guide Ali took us to see manta rays and then we saw and fed lots of goldfish. and finally, in Rasdhoo, Ali managed to attract nurse sharks to the port, and we even got to touch them! One of the best experiences in the Maldives.I recommend this company 100%. Its manager, Dinara, is professional and friendly, she is in everything. Thank you!!!

The dive center and the equipment are in great condition. The dive site was also great. However, we have a bad feeling about the crew. There are a lot of Russian tourists in Thoddoo, and this dive center is also run by a few Russian guys. They can speak really good English, but most of the time they speak only Russian even if there are a lot of other nationalities on the boat. The briefing before diving lasts a few minutes in Russian, and for like a half minute in English. We had an overall feeling that this place is mostly for Russian tourists.

Staff is professional and excursions are beautiful. On the other side we didn't feel so welcome compared to other clients, and during last excursion no one could speak English, not even the dive master. Hopefully one of the client could and translated everything to me.

Very professional center, Anatolijs Is a great diving instructor Who followed us during our dive in thodoo. We had a great and safe experience, we saw a nurse Shark, barracuda and giant maldivian lobster. I really recommend him and his diving center. Spasibo and see you soon!Antonio

We did not really enjoy our experience with Thoddoo Diving Center.We do understand they can not control visibility or marine animals (we were not able to see mantas although they told us they were seeing them everyday) but anyway it felt like they were in a rush all the time and only took us 2 minutes away from the port despite of charging us 70 dollars per person.

I received my open water dive certification here under Anatolijs, who is a great instructor. He was friendly, patient and very thorough with training and skill development. Everything was super well organized, including high quality dive equipment and boats. I got to dive with a whole team of professionals and see a lot of underwater life including sharks, turtles, manta rays, stingrays and much more. Highly recommend this place, and I’ll be back soon.
Great diving centre! Anatoly is helpful and friendly! Inspiring experience of swimming with sharks and turtles under water!

Amazing diving centre on the local island of Thoddoo, run by mostly Russian staff with great experience in diving.We were 2 beginners doing a Try Dive, where I already dived once and it was a first time for my girlfriend. They took us on a private speedboat, where all the gear was ready and we have received a basic training. Our crew consisted of 3 certified instructors.However my girlfriend was quite scared of diving and our crew made their best to calm her down, keep her relaxed and she actually did wonderfully and reached full depth of 12m in her first dive.For me, I had no issues and it was the best dive of my life. My instructor gave me some freedom during the dive and made me feel safe during the whole dive.We dived at the Manta point in Thoddoo and got to see Mantas, turtles, beautiful corals and much more.As a beginner diver I can only recommend and praise PDH diving centre.

We did great dives, the boat is confortable and fast, good équipement, nice captain and helpers, every dive was a bit different and exiting, and we often saw mantas ! Unforgettable and we will be back 💙
