Diving in the Maldives is every diver's dream and deciding to do it on a comfortable cruise ship is certainly the best way to get maximum satisfaction with minimum effort.
On boats everything is designed to satisfy every need and thanks to years of experience, the boat on which you boarded, will always follow the best route, to achieve the most beautiful dives in the most suitable moment.
From the meteorological point of view the Maldivian archipelago presents a double seasonality that can be broadly divided into two periods: the first goes from December to May dominated by the relatively dry north-east monsoon; the second, from June to November dominated by the wetter south-west monsoon.
During these two semesters the air and water temperatures remain almost unchanged, but only the probability of rain that concentrates more during the south-west monsoon and in the period of change of the two dominant winds increases.
The constant expiration of the two monsoons is one of the main causes of the change in the marine currents of the archipelago. With the change of these currents the type of fauna encountered at the dive sites also varies; the great mantas and whale sharks, for example, in the slopes of currents exiting the atolls and the large pelagic fish (sharks, tuna, barracuda, sea eagles etc.) in the slopes of the incoming stream. It goes without saying that staying on board a cruise boat you can always choose the optimal situations you prefer.
The alternation with the two monsoons of the dominant currents is the main reason why depending on the monsoon period, cruises are offered both on the east side and on the west side.
On the boats the staff is highly qualified. The instructors / boat chiefs are Italian / European, with a long experience of sea and Maldives in their curriculum, they speak English, Italian, Spanish. The local diving guides who accompany guests on diving and snorkeling are PADI divemasters who have worked with us for many years, speak English and Italian, know every corner and secret of this archipelago.
As for the underwater equipment available on board for rental, all technical material and equipment are periodically reviewed and checked by competent personnel.
Our Yachts have a workstation, with a work surface, dedicated to photo and video recharging.
DPV UNDERWATER SCOOTERS
To distinguish ourselves even better and as evidence of our ambitions, in the Maldives we first started the adventure of diving with Dpv Scooter systems, an extremely fascinating way of going underwater in absolute safety!

FOR THE SAFETY OF DIVERS
On board our boats are available tracking devices for dispersed divers "Nautilus Life Line".
The Maldives offer scenes of incomparable beauty: tiny islands, covered with lush vegetation, fringed with white sand beaches and surrounded by lagoons bounded by coral belts, in which all the possible shades of blue, turquoise and blue sparkle.
This wonderful scenery is not to be missed even for those who do not like the depths; so Sail organizes cruises dedicated also to people who with fins, mask and snorkel want to explore reefs rich in colors and fish of all shapes and sizes.
Bathing in crystal-clear lagoons, alternating with relaxing tan sessions on the deck of the boat or on dazzling sand tongues, a regenerating ayurvedic massage or nice canoe explorations, are the total relaxation of a perfect life on board.
Accompanied by an expert guide, you will be able to enjoy the best of underwater beauty. During the excursion the guide will be able to provide very useful information on the life forms sighted and to inform the participants about the characteristics of the place visited, indicating the best places to observe fascinating landscapes and life forms.
The guide will also give useful advice on the equipment and techniques to be used to enter or exit the water.
On board our boats we organize daily snorkeling tours, both day and night. Immediately after sunset, with underwater torches you can admire the color changes and observe which are the fish that sleep and which go hunting.
Another "magic" moment we propose for snorkeling is during sunset, before the light completely disappears, with the warm and welcoming atmosphere that only the Maldives can offer.
The minimum equipment consists of mask, fin and snorkel and for those who want to feel safer or to rest on the surface, they can use the jacket specifically for snorkeling.
The equipment can help but to feel even safer in the water and also to face the current that you can meet the advice we give is to enroll in a course where experienced instructors will teach the correct way to stay in the water .
All the equipment can be rented on site.
