When our client, Matthew Orton, travelled to Baros, a stunning, private-island retreat in the Maldives, he spent his days snorkelling and scuba-diving. Spotting everything from turtles and starfish to puffer fish and black-tip reef sharks, he was blown away by the extraordinary submarine world and vibrant marine life that he witnessed beneath those warm and gin-clear waters.

“The service at Baros was impeccable, the food was excellent and the diving and snorkeling were stellar,” said Matthew. “The dive crew was quite exceptional and ran an excellent operation. Even though we live on the beach in Florida, it was well worth the travel time and we’ll definitely be back.”
