    Carpe Diem

    The best way to explore the many atolls in Maldives is through liveaboard. It will take you to popular and new dive sites in various atolls that you will not get to experience if you are staying in a resort. You will have a chance to see a little of everything from big pelagic like mantas, sharks, whalesharks to shrimps, colourful nudibranches, ghost pipe fishes and everything in between.

    The boat

    MV Carpe Diem is a 35m long motor safari yacht with a wooden hull with 3 decks plus a sun deck. The main deck has a lounge area serving you coffee and tea throughout the day. It also has a wide flat screen TV, DVD/MP3 player for your relaxation after the underwater excitement. If you cannot get enough of the sun, you can enjoy your afternoon tea at the outdoor lounge or sun deck while taking in the beautiful colours of the Indian Ocean. If you want to spend some quiet moments, head to the in-house library with comfortable sofa seats. Also at the upper deck, is the open air dining area and bar where you will be served international cuisines. The kitchen can also cater to special dietary needs with prior notice.
