Liveaboard Diving in the Maldives

When no two islands are the same, the biggest conundrum for those visiting the Maldives is often choosing which island to actually visit (tough gig). Unless, of course, you opt to explore by liveaboard.

Rather than plonk yourself on one idyllic island paradise, set foot upon several while cruising across the Maldives atolls aboard some of the world's finest luxury liveaboards. The Maldives' diving is incredibly varied and choosing to visit on a liveaboard allows you to explore some of the archipelago's most remote, pristine sites (think: crystal clear lagoons to thrilling channel dives) - some of which are only accessible by liveaboard. Along the way, dive with manta rays, sharks, dolphins, groupers and more, spending surface intervals exploring local islands and picnicking on deserted sandbanks.

When it comes to Maldives liveaboard diving, no-where does floating five-star hotel with quite same panache. Travelling with a non-diver? Then the ScubaSpa fleet is just the ticket, boasting the biggest spa in the Maldives. Perhaps you'd rather sail aboard a luxury yacht, see a specific species or explore a certain atoll? We know all the best liveaboards that ply the archipelago and the routes that cater for your preferences. And if you do have a luxurious island in mind, we can also combine a liveaboard with land for the best of both worlds.
