About this trip

 Our guests will tell you: perhaps nowhere else is sea life as richly abundant and dazzling as it is in Maldives. More than one thousand tiny islands are scattered like gems across our crystalline waters. Long protected from commercial fishing, our seas offer unrivalled marine life and spectacular diving among the shallows and deep reefs — and no one knows those waters better than the team on Manthiri. Possessing expert knowledge of local marine life and of Maldives’ most remote and pristine dive sites, no other liveaboard in Maldives furnishes the topflight dive experience of Manthiri. Our highly trained eleven-person crew will provide for your every need aboard our serene and spacious yacht and custom-built dive tender.

Owner/Operator Wayne Gomer became interested in the ocean at a very early age and started his diving career in the 1960s when he made his first scuba dive off the Island of Bermuda. That sparked a 45+ year career that includes becoming a Lifetime NAUI instructor in 1976 and a PADI instructor in 1978. As an ambassador to the ocean, Wayne is proud to have introduced thousands of new divers to the sport. A business built on the love of diving. Established on May 10, 1985.
