just returned from the above trip in the maldives, booked through Scubatravel part of the Tony Backhurst group. We were as the name suggests supposed to be primarily, looking for Manta's at the best Manta sites, two were named in the itinerary, Hanivaru lagoon in Baa atoll, and Gangethi in north Ari atoll, we never even got near Baa atoll and did not visit Gangethi, instead we dived wrecks and thilas well inside the atolls, were there was very little chance of seeing Manta's. We did come across Manta's on the second day and then promptly moved on north, as if this was not what we had come for! After returning home we complained to Scubatravel and received an email from Tony Backhurst informing us that we would not be welcome on any of his holiday's in future, so much for travel agent of the year 2013, and customer service!

That's harsh, why would they not want you to book with them in the future? Perhaps they don't like hearing the truth! Same old story once they have your money you're snookered!
