The mighty Maldives - we just can't stay away, and why should we? Have you seen how amazing it is? We are SO excited to be releasing our 2nd Maldives GTS group after the huge success of our past Maldives trip. If you watched with envy then this is your chance to do the same trip! Yet again we are partnering with our friend's Insider Divers (making it a mixed-gender trip) and calling the M/Y Blue Voyager our home for the week.
The first blue o two fleet vessel in the Maldives, M/Y blue Voyager was built specifically for divers and originally sailed in the Red Sea. She underwent a major refurbishment in 2015 before relocating to the Maldives with further updates in the summer of 2016 and 2017. M/Y blue Voyager welcomes up to 26 divers on board with spacious modern comfort, providing the best Maldivian diving experience! M/Y blue Voyager is a 37-metre, steel hulled vessel that boasts three roomy double cabins and ten twin cabins. She features an indoor dining area, a bar and sky lounge, as well as a Jacuzzi - yes, guys, we have a Jacuzzi on board! Would you expect anything less?
Dive sites: North and South Male Atolls - Felidhu Atoll - Rasdhoo Atoll - Ari Atoll
The diving in the Maldives is absolutely sublime; shark and manta ray sightings are very very likely as well as myriads of reef fish, morays, critters and the king of them all - the whale shark!! Diving with Manta rays and reef sharks in various cleaning stations will be one of our aims for this trip, including night dive with Manta Rays and Nurse Sharks on two special night dives unable to mimic anywhere else in the world! This itinerary is subject to change, depending on the weather.
