Searex Guest Reviews

Charter 21 - 28 October 2023

SEAREX was, without a doubt, the best experience my family and I have ever had. We were blown away by the boat and her facilities, the staff, the hospitality and the incredible food. We really could not fault a single thing the entire week. Nothing was ever too much and the day and night of my Father´s 60th was something we will all remember forever because of the SEAREX staff and what they did for us. It was a privilege to meet every single member of staff on board; my 3-year-old son took a particular shining to Ibrahim and one week later even woke in the middle of the night just to tell me he missed him and asked if we could go back to the big boat! Please pass our sincere thanks to everyone who made this special birthday trip one of a lifetime, we hope we will be able to come back!’

Feedback charter 23 - 30 March Maldives SEAREX

My client reported to me that they had a fantastic time, and I attribute this to the fact that they REALLY love to dive and enjoy water sports, and they appreciated the very good service on board. They said the yacht was very clean and the cabins comfortable, but it was very simple and plain (which you can see from the photos). They said the two master cabins were rather small to be called Masters. They said the service is very good, they said Chaali, the on board coordinator is the best, and that his only desire is to serve and please the guests. I found him amazing to work with during the planning process and eager to find a way to accommodate our requests. My client paid extra to have them bring in a Thai masseuse for their charter. They said she was amazing!

They said the diving was fabulous, and that the dive instructor on board was probably the best they ever had, and they dive all over the world.

Thanks!,

Charter January 2019

Please find here below a feedback from the client’s PA (it’s in french but I did not want to translate it as it would just not feel right) :
Might seem a bit premature but I wanted to let you know as I thought it was so lovely I got sent this and wanted to pass it on to you and Chaali.

Il est ravi : bateau, équipage, nourriture. De plus, la plongée est topissime, avec des moniteurs extras et un équipement au top aussi. Au point que deux des dames qui avaient dit ne pas en faire s’y sont mis. Au total 5 confirmés et 5 débutants. Et en plus du professionnalisme général, tout le monde est d’une grande gentillesse.
La soirée de Caroline fut waouw : plage magnifique, un chanteur extra, et « une sono dingue - il ne sait pas comment ils ont fait » ! Il y avait un ambiance démentielle.

So as you can see, they have had the time of their life. Clearly, everything happened seamlessly, the crew is not only extremely nice but also very professional. They loved the diving, which was clearly the highlight of their trip, right next to the very special birthday BBQ the crew of Searex prepared. I would like to thank you and Chaali + his crew for making sure my client had the best time on board Searex. I would not hesitate to recommend her to other clients / brokers.

Tandem Charter AZALEA & SEAREX 26/10/18-04/11/18

BEST HOLIDAY EVER!!!!!!!!

We just had a tandem charter on both SEAREX and AZALEA at it really was beyond our expectations! We were 34 people in total: 20 children and 14 adults and the crew had a perfect control over everything. We never had such a perfect holiday where both children and parents had such a nice and relaxing time. the Children had so much entertainment like the Big Slide,the Jacuzzi, the big sea pool, Xbox or Nitendo, karaoke, ... The crew even teached every one of them how to waterski or jetski and took them on a local football tournement. Nothing was too much to ask and all went perfect. There were so many highlights on this trip, I can not even describe all of them. What we will remember most is: Swimming with the whalesharks, Snorkelling with Manta Rays and Turtles, Fly Fishing, Night Dive between lots of sharks around us,...

We already chartered a lot of big yachts but for us this was the best trip ever! THANK YOU AZALEA AND SEAREX FOR HAVING US. WE WILL BE BACK!!!!

Charter 23-30 Augustus 2018

Wow , What a spectacular holiday! The boat is stunning and Charlie and his fabulous crew thought of every detail. We were totally spoilt by all the staff and our kids had so much fun with all the toys! We all hope to have the opportunity to come back and holiday with you again one day !

Thank you for everything !
