Ruth was most helpful at arranging our private snorkeling safari trip at such short notice. After spending 6 days at resort with not-so-amazing house reef, we decided to spend our last few hour before catching our flight back home snorkeling three different spots close to the

Hi there, Thanks for taking the time to write your review. Great to hear that you ended your holiday on a high with us and that Mash provided a memorable snorkeling experience. I still can't believe that you flew in from your resort at 07:00, joined Mash for snorkeling at 08:00 and were then checking in for your departure flight at 11:30, just goes to show where there is a will there is a way! We appreciate we are not a cheap tour option, however, our rates are reflective of our level of communication, guide service, safety standards and the experience all our guests receive, whether they book a private tour like yourselves or join a scheduled trip and it's evident from your review that we delivered :-) Sorry to hear you suffered from sea sickness, it has been unusually breezy for this time of year and that does impact the swells on the ocean. As you mention anyone who has a tendency to suffer from motion sickness (myself included!!) should consider sea sickness tablets, they do make a difference. Thanks again for your review which I will be sure to share with Mash. We hope we can welcome you again in the future. Kind Regards Ruth

Maldives is the ideal island for snorkeling. We went for snorkeling from maafushi islands.The snorkeling safaris are provided by any tourist island. But what offers from Male and Hulhumale are expensive as I believe they are bit far away from snorkeling locations. So better

Hi Cynie Thanks so much for your review. Great to hear you enjoyed your snorkeling tour with Shaa and that you also managed to pick up some tips on improving your free diving skills. Very jealous as this is something I seem unable to get to grips with! I will be sure to share your comments with the team. Thanks again and hope to see you back in the water again soon. Kind regards Ruth

Hi Thomas Thanks for your review and great to hear you enjoyed your morning snorkelling with Mash. We pride ourselves on our integrity as I see no point in not being open and honest as this only leads to dissatisfied or disappointed guests so in my mind far better to set expectations from the outset. As you discovered whilst coral is not in it's prime we are not short on marine life and you certainly struck lucky encountering a mobula ray as soon as you hit the water! Have noted your comments regarding the toilet facilities and will review to see what improvements can be made, maybe they just needed a woman's touch after I had been out the office for the weekend :-) Thanks again for your review which I will share with the team. Enjoy the rest of your trip! Kind Regards Ruth
