 The Routes vary depending on the number of nights within the tour. Mostly we have 7 nights tour which we will be able to cover the most best dive sites of Maldives within the range of Male' Atoll & Ari Atoll. We also do longer tour routes of 9 nights or longer then 9 nights depending on the request of the clients .

Within 9 nights we will be able to travel further and cover Vaavu , and Rasdhu Atoll range. Our most recommended length of the tour is a 9 day tour as this tour can cover most of the best dives sites.

There are few Uniq tours of 14 days which travel to Huvadhu Atoll Tour , which is a remarkable tour as to its long voyage and the remote area where very few liveaboards will travel to cover such a long range and dive the most un destructed dive sites in Maldives

The routes are planned in advance however it is not fixed as the best diving points in Maldives can vary depending on the current and visibility and depending on overall weather. Our Dive guides will select the best choice of route and dive site for the liveaboard tour.
