Mantas and more Mantas!!

We had 4 great dives while we stayed at Angaga Resort & Spa. One dive we saw whale sharks while we snorkelled and the other we saw 7 mantas around one of their cleaning stations. One hovered over us looking as interested in us as we were in her.

Fühlte mich sehr wohl beim Tauchen

Habe fast alle Guides kennen lernen dürfen. Sie waren alle sehr freundlich und kompetent. Die Tauchgänge waren gut vorbereitet. Da zu meinem Zeitpunkt nicht viele Taucher auf der Insel waren, ist schon mal eine Ausfahrt am Nachmittag ausgefallen. Für mich hatte dann aber der Tauchgang am Hausriff ausgereicht. Basis gut ausgestattet, Sicherheit ging immer vor. Alles in allem hat es mir sehr gut gefallen, ich habe mich gut aufgehoben gefühlt. Preis / Leistung ok. Ausrüstung war gepflegt. Weiter zu empfehlen.

Excellent- is a key word

This October it was our 7-th trip to Thulhagiri. During these years several dive-teams were changed. But every team and dive center management were extremely professional and friendly. From my and my wife points of view there is nothing to change and improve in work of this excellent team. All the best and good luck in your not easy jibe.

Wishes come true - A Dive Center managed by a professional team

4 years ago I made my OWD at this dive center although I always said, that diving is not of my interest. I saw that dive center and decided spontaneously to start the OWD course (the pro's were: the overall systemic order, e.g. order of tanks, lists, wet-suits, information of boat trips incl their explanations, cleanliness of the dive center).
We went the course fastly through and I had a lot of fun with diving and started to love it. After 4 years we came back to Angaga. We had a first talk to one of the Management Team Members (Agnes Csomos), who informed us about the check dive and the route we would dive, she also took time to discuss our individual diving wishes in detail during out stay at Angaga.
Before ending our check dive Agnes showed us a corals breeding place, which impressed us very much. Yes, indeed a lot of corals died and the underwarter world is not colorful as it was years before, but we were impressed about all the love put into this breeding place, which we would like to highlight as an excellent initiative, which needs to be expanded around the Maldives and more.
We also noticed that the members of the dive center collects waste out of the sea during their dives, which we highly appreciate and we did the same. We need to help corals and we need to protect our environment. Nevertheless waste will stay a big issue for the Maledives and we wish that this can be solved somehow before the seaword will die due to overload on waste. The Sub Aqua Dive Center at Angaga showed us how much they want to protect the seaworld, which impressed us very much.

Regarding diving trips we noticed that the Management Team really took care to make wishes from all guests come true and this is sometimes not an easy tasks, but we can say, that the team made everything possible to make us HAPPY! And we were very happy and we need to say, that we really miss the time and wish to come back very soon.
A big thank you to Agnes, who was my Buddy during the wrack diving tour. It was a surprise for me, that I had the courage to make it and it was one oy my great dives. My husband who is a rescue diver also enjoyed it very much who made the tour with another buddy and unguided.
And a big thank you to Italy who was our guide during the Manta tour this year. It was great to see Melodie, the Manta, who floated like a royal above our heads. Agnes kindly found out based on the picutres we me made that this Manta's name is Melodie and provided us further informaiton about Melodie.

We need to give our thank to this Angaga dive center which is responsible that my husband Ben and me have together unforgetable and wonderful diving trips, because it was Angaga's dive center why I made the OWD. And I plan to make my AOWD - hopefully at Angaga with Agnes.

What we have seen during our times at Angaga, and just to mention a few:
- Walshark
- Dolphins
- Mantas
- Octopus
- Lopster
- Stone fishes
- and many many many more

THANK YOU Sub Aqua Dive Center Angaga and all our best wishes to you.

Hope to see you soon again.

Not the friendliest or most helpful until their Regional Manager arrived.

I am an advanced diver and this was far from being my first dive trip. I found the staff not very helpful and just plain lazy when it came to cleaning the gear. At a small shop I would expect to do everything myself but not at a resort. Especially since their paperwork, equipment monitoring and cleaning is so anal retentive. It started to feel like a part time job. The locals who made up the boat crew were great but until the Regional Manager showed up the staff at the shop (other than the Swiss guy) did practically nothing to help divers gear up or clean up after dives. The main thing that really got to me was the attitude of the manager Agne. She literally interrupted me and another diver on separate occasions to tell us off about conversations we were having and she didn't even understand the context of the conversations. I think she must need a vacation.

Thank you for your sympathy

Service and attention is very good and they have different options to dive according to your level and circumstances. It is a wonderful and safe place to dive for everybody. There is a very professional staff and they speak different languages so there is no problem with understanding of rules. Thanks a lot for all.

Hohe Standards und echte Profis

Ich habe im Urlaub meinen Open Water Diver gemacht und eine sehr gute Ausbildung genossen. Das Team ist multilingual aufgestellt, sehr professionell und auch noch freundlich dazu. Es werden tolle Tauchgänge mit Rundumservice angeboten angeboten. So können die schönsten Spots und (Groß-)Fische im Ari Atoll betaucht werden. Sehr empfehlenswert!

Toller Tauchurlaub

Bis auf Walhaie haben wir in den knapp 2 Wochen alles gesehen; von Schnecken und kleinen Putzergarnelen über Schwarmfisch bis Mantas und einem Wrack war alles dabei. Auch auf Wünsche der Taucher bezüglich der Spots wird eingegangen, denn an der Tauchschule gibt es eine Wunschliste, in die man sich eintragen kann. Anders als auf anderen Inseln haben die Spots um Angaga unter der Korallenbleiche zwar auch gelitten, aber etwas weniger und es gibt tatsächlich auch einige (tiefere) Bereiche mit intakten Korallen. Toller Service, ein professionelles Team und klasse Tauchspots inklusive Hausriff - uneingeschränkt zu empfehlen!

Super professional diving operation with fantastic diving!

We really enjoyed diving with Aggie and her team at Sub Aqua Angaga Island. The dive operation is super organised, clean, with well maintained rental gear. The dive sites we visited during our stay were fantastic and the dive briefings were very thorough. We only have 26 dives under our belt, so we appreciated the excellent guidance and attention by the dive team. We undertook guided dives most days. We enjoyed the dive teams enthusiasm for showing us the special features and critters on each dive site, and their encouragement with our diving to get the best experience possible. Really sharp operation. Best we have encountered so far! Highly recommended!

Guter Service

Wir waren gut betreut. Die Basis ging auf unsere Wünsche bezüglich der Auswahl der Tauchplätze ein. Die Tauchlehrerin Kathy war hochmotiviert. Es hat ihr sichtlich Freude gemacht, uns Kleinigkeiten wie Schnecken und Porzellankrebse zu zeigen. Sie war der beste Guide, den wir in 26 Jahren Tauchen je hatten. Kein Dienst nach Vorschrift, sondern pure Freude am Tauchen. Die Ausspülbecken sauber, Ausrüstung brauchten wir nicht, da wir alles dabei hatten.
