Unfortunately the majority of coral is dead but the beautiful water and abundant sea life make it a great trip. Our crew, lead by Zaki, we’re great fun, looked after us very well and the food was excellent. Highly recommend this trip! Read more

I would highly recommend travelling with Intrepid if you want a tour where:

You are not given the address of your accommodation, in a country with no Wifi, where your mobile phone won’t work and you don’t speak the language.

You will meet a local who knows nothing about your visit or your tour, or much of anything really, who has no idea that ATM machines are open 24 hours, and he will be your guide. You will call him Lizard.

The theme of the tour is your favorite activity, and that’s the reason you booked the tour, and then you don’t do that activity at all, even though you could, and no one tells you why.

You are expected to share not only a room with a same sex stranger, but also share a bed with them. And if you’re really lucky, a member of the tour crew will be sleeping in the same room too!

You’ll be asked what you’d like to eat, but none of what you asked for will be provided. And there won’t be any other source of food for miles.

And when you’re not sleeping, everyone on the tour will be crammed into a space the size of a small garden shed for cooking, eating and pooping, and no one will clean the space for more than a week, and by the end of the week the little buckets of poo paper will make the space smell like a sewer.

But there are serious risks with this tour. You may meet six other amazing people who you will laugh and drink copious amounts of rum with you, and make jokes about Lizard.

A week spent on a traditional Dhoni, snorkeling on 2 reefs each day, sunbathing on the deck, relaxing - pure bliss. The water is turquoise and crystal clear. The sea life is abundant, we saw reef sharks, sea turtles, sea cucumbers and many wonderful colorful species of fish. We visited islands along the way where we got to meet and mingle with the locals. One of the best parts of the trip was that we were so far from the resorts that we had the reefs completely to ourselves. A really amazing trip! Read more

This is a holiday gave me a chance to slow down, and take the time to feel part of the natural world: the sun, to notice the hook-beaked oyster catchers and families of rare seals, to enjoy the wonderful food, the sunshine, scudding clouds, waves lapping and the feeling of being held safely by the St Hilda whilst being at the mercy of winds, tides and waves. It was fun to share tasks with fellow passengers and to laugh. I haven't laughed so much for years. And I loved seeing beautiful coastal parts of Scotland for the first time from the sea, gaining the chance to wonder at the histories and cultures that have flourished, been lost and yet live on in the remote, unusual places where we moored. I discovered my sea-legs, but I found much more - the pleasure of a little bit of distance from land, the new perspectives it gives and sheer joy of experiencing the sea, and its role in revealing new dreams and uncovering old ones. All this was in the company of knowledgeable crew - sea-farers who made the whole cruise delightful from start to finish and easy-peasy for a land-lubber like myself. Read more
