"I’m back in the US after spending some time in France following my Carpe Novo adventure (30 Oct/9Nov 2021) It’s our time of Thanksgiving here, and I would be remiss if I didn’t write to say what a lovely time I had on the Carpe Novo thanks to the kindness of your crew. The food and hospitality at meal times were fantastic. I also appreciated the little treats chef Iresh left for us after our last dive of the day and before dinner. It was all so thoughtful and nourishing. I also appreciated Rofiq’s careful attention to detail when preparing the cabins each day. His towel sculptures are out of this world! I had a lovely chat with the captain one day, learning about his career, when visiting him as he was steering the ship. He was always very friendly and welcoming of everyone’s questions. And of course, I had the most wonderful divemaster in Iyan. He made a special effort to help me see new things and also feel safe as a solo traveler/diver. He encouraged me to grow by going on a night dive - I really needed that challenge! The dhoni was fantastic as well. They helped me a ton with my equipment. At one point my 1st stage blew and they changed it out swiftly so that I could keep diving the rest of the trip. AND I was Nitrox certified by the dive instructor Ali. He’s so calm and intentional. Just a really wonderful and kind crew you’ve got there. Thank you for everything, and I hope to dive with you again soon!"
"We have just come back home and we'd really like to dedicate some words to congratulate and thank you and your team for this wonderful week (4/11Dec2021) We've been quite lucky with the uncontrollable things. For instance, the people of the group have been really nice, the weather mostly good and the dives very good in general. Our dive guide during the week, Ali, and the rest of the team have also been responsible for that last part. They have taken very good decisions to find the right timing and places to dive. Ali in particular has been very good, he knows where to find both big and macro life, he has always kept an eye on us and, as an extra, he knows how to find the correct timing to avoid other groups, which in many dive sites is quite important. Besides, the Carpe Novo itself is an amazing boat and the crew members are lovely. They have taken very good care of us, everything has run very smoothly. The time schedule has always been very accurate, even though we are Spanish and we are used to the opposite, we really appreciated that. Finally, a special mention to the food. We have enjoyed every single meal of the cruise. Food was delicious and diverse which we loved. So, thanks for everything and we hope to repeat in the future. "

"My friends and I have been on the last 2 trips of the Carpe Diem from 16.10.20 - 31.10.20. I just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time. Many thanks to you and especially the guides and crew which are one of the best in friendliness and professionalism I have experienced. The way they handled everything under the given circumstances was just great. I hope that we will have a chance to return soon for more great adventures."
"So grateful that Terri at Deep Blue Adventure highly recommended your liveaboard and assured me of the great diving vacation I would certainly have. As a foodie(part of my job now and always) I was impressed by your culinary team and the excellent food we enjoyed at each meal. The baked whole Jackfish and exotic fresh fruit platter are frequently on my computer screen saver. Yes, even with the epic pictures I have of the sunset shark dive, manta dives, blue striped snapper schools, and the hundreds of photos I took of the Carpe Novo and the beautiful ocean morning, day and night as we cruised around the different atolls and saw views that most would only imagine. I could write pages of comments on how much I enjoyed this experience and I will take time to answer the survey sent, though I wanted to impress upon you how much I valued this trip and my interactions with your team throughout the 8 day journey. I will always recommend Carpe Diem highly and will look forward to a future visit in the not too distant future I hope! I will not even consider that there could be a better liveaboard company out there. Your team exceeded my expectations in each and every way. My stateroom was incredible too! Having spent most of my career as a hotel and venue general manager I know how difficult it is to host guests overnight and meet all of their needs. And, on top of it you had a wonderful team of expert and well trained dive masters that made me feel safe always. I am still following them on Instagram and having fun sharing my videos of the dives. My friends are so envious, lol."
"I have had the pleasure of running surf charters on board the Carpe Vita since it first set sail in 2011. I can honestly say that in the last 8 years we had nothing but amazing feedback from all clients that have been aboard for the Carpe experience. The boat has been meticulously designed and built to comfortably accommodate 20 people as it is a massive 125ft boat. 3 levels of cabins from Suites to Standard ensure a variety of luxury depending on your budget. The 14 crew look after your every need as all our guests want for nothing when on board. The meals are plentiful and healthy with an amazing kitchen team and the highlight is the alfresco dining and bar at the back of the boat. One of the highlights of my year is getting back on board the Carpe and I always bring more people each year to experience the majestic Carpe Vita. A big thanks to Agnes and her amazing team."
