Two Worlds ! Come & Explore - Liveaboard diving in Maldives


Maldives has much to offer any diver or tourist. Whether it is enjoying nature at a resort or hopping on a Live Aboard to cruise throughout the scenic atolls, passengers are sure to fill their days with pleasure and beauty. The Live Aboard holiday focuses on diving. The boat cruises the spectacular Indian Ocean while making stops at desired dive sites. Meanwhile, passengers enjoy the natural beauty of Maldives and the surrounding ocean relaxed and comfortable. On a Live Aboard, one will generally make three to four dives daily at our most celebrated dive points (some being world class 


dive sites). The Maldives is scattered throughout Indian Ocean and our dive sites are stretched throughout it’s atoll reefs. The advantages of a Live Aboard safari is that one can cover a variety of atolls, enjoy island hoping, and have the chance to experience the rich cultural life styles the islanders have preserved for years.
