Dives are run from our diving dhoni and accompanied by two professional diving guides. Discover the beautiful underwater world of the Maldives on a dive off the Nautilus One. Every dive is a new adventure! No diving destination offers more large fish, more schools of fish, more colourful reef fish, a wider variety of underwater landscapes or better diving services. The average water temperature is 28°C throughout the year and visibility can be as much as 50 meters. Let our experienced crew bring you to the best diving spots and dive into the world of the coral reef; home to many colourful reef fish, turtles, schools of pelagic species, sharks, manta rays, whale sharks and many other interesting life forms. Enjoy the highest level of comfort and safety on our professionally-led dives. Diving requirement: minimum 30 ocean dives logged.

  • Diving equipment is kept on the accompanying dive vessel (Dhoni)
  • Oxygen, a DAN emergency case and a mobile phone are available on the Dhoni in case of emergency.
  • Compressors are stored on the Dhoni, meaning that there is no noise pollution for guests on the liveaboard while bottles are re-filled between dives.
  • All divers must adhere to the Maldivian diving regulations: no decompression dives, always stay with your dive buddy, never dive deeper than 30m if you are a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver (or equivalent) and never dive deeper than 18m if you are a PADI Open Water Diver (or equivalent).

Route:

It is our aim to show you the most beautiful dive spots in the Maldives. In order to do this, it is necessary to adapt our routes according to the season, available time and current weather reports. That is why our ships do not follow fixed routes, but rather tailor each safari route to make the best possible dive trip. Please trust our experienced crews to choose the right route; every ship's crew has years of experience in diving in the Maldives and they know how to make the most out of each cruise. At the start of each safari, a rough route will be confirmed, followed by daily briefings on what specific dive sites will be visited. Before each dive, you will be thoroughly briefed and shown a map of the dive site.

Required dive certification:

The minimum requirement is a PADI Open Water Diver certificate or equivalent, which will allow you to dive to a maximum of 18m. This is the depth when a lot of the best dive sites begin to be really interesting, which is why we encourage our guests to obtain a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver certificate or equivalent before or during the cruise. This will allow you to dive to a maximum of 30m and fully explore the Maldives' best dive spots.

Divers who have not dived for a while can do a PADI Scuba Review course to refresh their skills.
