This spacious and modern liveaboard has several 7- to 10-night itineraries to cover the best dive sites in the Maldives. Choose between the classic yet stunning Central Atolls route, the less-visited North with plenty of mantas, or the remote Equatorial South sometimes called the "Maldivian Galapagos" - you'll want to come back to do them all! Get ready to dive with dozens of nurse sharks, see some manta rays and whale sharks, and swim among a plethora of tropical fish! We love the boat, the dedicated team, and, overall, the excellent value of these trips.
They adhere to Longitude 181's International Charter for Responsible Diving, and reduce the use of single-use plastics as much as possible.
For divers who want to see some big pelagic and are comfortable in moderate currents. You must have logged at least 50 dives or have a Level 2 certification (Advanced Open Water or equivalent). It is possible to do the course on board - please ask us for more information.
Contact us and we'll tell you which itinerary is available on your preferred dates: North, Central, or South Atolls.
Having more than 26 atolls, the Maldives offers an incredible diversity of corals and fish, with more than 2,000 species recorded so far.
In the Central atolls, you'll get to dive at manta ray cleaning stations, and snorkel with whale sharks at famous South Ari Atoll.
If you choose to go to the Northern atolls, you'll dive in a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve with one of the largest coral reef diversity of the Indian Ocean.
If encounters with big pelagic are your thing, then consider going on a longer trip to the Southern atolls: the little Galapagos of the Indian Ocean! Thresher sharks, tiger sharks, schools of great and scalloped hammerheads, oceanic mantas, mobula rays, whale sharks, and mola-molas, you can see it all!
All over Maldives, you'll dive in a fantastic topography with plenty of swim-throughs, pinnacles, caverns, overhangs, and coral gardens.
In the Central atolls, sites include Okobe Thila in North Male Atoll, Kandooma Thila in South Male Atoll, Broken Rock, Kudarah Thila and Maaya Thila in South Ari Atoll.
In the Northern atolls, sites include Fotteyo Kandu in Vaavu Atoll, Hanifaru Bay in Baa Atoll, and Kuredu Express in Lhaviyani Atoll.
In the Southern atolls, you'll get to dive around the famous Fuvahmulah Atoll.
