Nautilus One

Nautilus one with her 30 meters in length is way more than a mere safari ship. Entirely made of wood and in a tried and tested Maldivian boat design, she isn’t just something for the eye.

A lot of space, beautiful craftsmanship and modern facilities prove that by no means does one have to forgo comforts and amenities on a traditional liveaboard.

Our aim is to take you to the most beautiful dive sites of the Maldives. To achieve this it is necessary to adjust the ship’s route according to the weather, the season and the available travel time.
Liveaboards do not have a fixed route, but will create the perfect route for each safari.
We ask you to have confidence in our very experienced crew. Fixed routes eliminate the usage of such valuable insider knowledge!

At the start of each safari a rough route will be announced, which will be adjusted each night.

You will receive a precise briefing on the location map of each dive site before every dive!

Special: you can watch the captain steer the ship to your next location!

Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served in the comfortable salon. The delicious meals are freshly prepared and consist of a mixture of European and Asian dishes.
