One of the lovely features that sets Komandoo apart from the larger Maldives’ resorts is its personalised, attentive approach to diving. The philosophy of the dive centers’ valet service is straightforward: ensure that scuba diving adventures are as hassle free, stress free and enjoyable as possible.
For you to experience the wonders of the atoll’s underwater, a lot of the inconveniences that are often associated with diving is taken off your shoulders at Komandoo. You may find carrying tanks, loading the equipment onto the boat, rinsing it after the dive and similar tasks a part of the experience, however don’t feel guilty if deep inside you would be rather pleased if for once you could offload some of these logistics and worries to the dive center team. You are in luck because the Prodivers’ instructors and support team (including Saizuddin who’s been keeping Komandoo divers happy for a whopping 20 years!), know how precious your holiday time is, and are on hand to help you with the ‘surface part of the diving’.
The team will help you with storing your equipment, getting it ready for your dive, transporting it to the boat, setting it up if you wish to, so the only things left for you is to make a giant stride and dive in! Once the underwater fun is over, the team will assist you with taking the gear back to the dive center and even rinse it and hang it up to dry for you.
Whether you are arriving at Komandoo for the first time or have been here a dozen times, you can expect exceptional service with a big emphasis on safety and attentiveness. The diving groups are small (private diving is available on request too), the team speak a number of languages, the diving boats are comfortable and the dive sites aplenty.
