Maldives Liveaboard refers to a scuba diving ship in the Maldives that offers cruises around the islands and atolls of the islands to people who want to spend their Maldives holiday scuba diving in some of the best dive sites in the world.
Maldives Liveaboard Styles
Maldives liveaboards come in a variety of sizes and styles. You can choose the most luxurious super-cruiser or a basic, rustic boat. All Maldives liveaboards will take you to the best dive sites in the Maldives, where you will scuba dive down to the coral reefs and hopefully see some of the most amazing marine life in the world, including Reef Sharks, Whale Sharks, Manta Rays, Stingrays and Moray Eels.
Maldives Liveaboard Diving
Maldives liveaboards are fully equipped with everything you will need for an excellent scuba diving holiday. All Maldives liveaboards are accompanied by another boat, called a Dhoni, on which all the scuba diving equipment is kept and from where all dives are taken. When it’s time to go scuba diving, guests simply transfer to the Dhoni from the Maldives Liveaboard and travel to the dive site. Since the Dhoni is much smaller than the Maldives liveaboard, it is able to travel to much smaller and shallower places. The great advantage of diving from a Maldives liveaboard instead of a Maldives resort is that the distances from the Maldives liveaboard to the dive site is much shorter than the distance between the resorts and the dive sites.
Maldives Liveaboard Facilities
Onboard the Maldives liveaboard, the facilities vary according to the Maldives liveaboard. The more luxurious Maldives liveaboards are equipped with spa facilities and Jacuzzis, extremely comfortable furnishings and formal dining areas, whereas the more basic Maldives liveaboards are simpler inside. Logically, the more luxurious Maldives liveaboards are more expensive and the more basic Maldives liveaboards are cheaper.
Maldives Liveaboard MV Orion
An example of the more luxurious Maldives liveaboards is the MV Orion, the newest liveaboard in the Maldives. Maldives liveaboard MV Orion is a 130-feet Super-Cruiser that began offering scuba diving holidays in the Maldives in 2009. Cruises on the MV Orion Maldives liveaboard are currently being offered by Maldives Dive Travel for just USD $204 per night, all-inclusive. Luxury facilities aboard Maldives liveaboard MV Orion include a Jacuzzi on the upper deck available for the use of all passengers, as well as a private Jacuzzi in the Master Suite.
Maldives Liveaboard Black Pearl
Maldives liveaboard Black Pearl is a good example of one of the more basic liveaboards in the Maldives. That said, the Black Pearl is one of the most popular Maldives liveaboards, and cruises with Maldives Dive Travel on the Black Pearl Maldives liveaboard start from just USD $155 per night all-inclusive.
Maldives Liveaboard Packages
Maldives liveaboard all-inclusive packages include three meals each day, non-alcoholic drinks and all dives. Two or three dives are taken each day on a Maldives liveaboard safari, as well as one night dive per week. If divers have their own equipment, they should bring it on board, as equipment is not included in the price of the package, although it can be hired if possible.
Maldives Liveaboard Activities
While scuba diving is the main activity on Maldives liveaboards, it is not the only one. Passengers on Maldives liveaboards also enjoy activities like snorkeling, sunbathing, cultural visits to islands in the Maldives, shopping trips to Male, the capital of the Maldives and fishing. Often, Maldives liveaboard guests will enjoy eating the fish they catch for their evening meal.
