  • Trip introduction

    Spend 11 days on the palatial Maldives Master yacht and undertake up to 30 open water dives in the Indian Ocean. Sailing across the Southern Atolls of the Maldives Islands, you'll complete 3-4 dives everyday to swim alongside some of the most expansive array of aquatic dwellers. A night dive will also be scheduled to explore the nocturnal essence of the ocean currents. Certified dive instructors will accompany you to guide you during every underwater jaunt.

    In between your dives, you can put your feet up and relax on sundecks, lounges and the Jacuzzi aboard the yacht. Your cruise in the tropical waters of the Indian Ocean will only be interrupted by scheduled land excursions to explore islands in the Maldives archipelago.

    NOTE: Travellers are required to be certified PADI Advanced Open Water Divers to book this Maldives scuba diving liveaboard.

    Destination

    The Southern Atolls of Maldives, with relatively low ship traffic, is home to a number of dive spots with healthy corals and brightly coloured fishes. The dive spots, with fairly clear underwater visibility, are densely populated with a roster of marine life species including reef sharks, barracudas, stingrays, manta rays, leaf fish, ghost pipefish and more. If you're lucky, you may even spot a sperm whale or hammerhead shark. The wide ranging topography of dive spots includes submerged pinnacles, coral-layered bottoms, atoll border kandus and more, making for a fascinating journey across the Maldives islands.
