Diving is carried out from the purpose built "diving dhoni," which will not anchor but rather follow the divers from the surface. This is one of the safest and most comfortable ways to dive in the Maldives due to the wind and currents. Each diver will have their own dive station and basket for storing their diving gear, which will always remain on the diving dhoni. The system leaves the main boat free to handle accommodations, meals and social activities in a quiet atmosphere.
