Maldives – one female spot open, 1 male spot open
Where we are diving
With over 1,100 tiny islands in the Indian ocean, the Maldives offer some of the most scenic seascapes on earth and is one of the most spectacular dive destinations in the world. You’ll be amazed by schools of grey reef sharks, undisturbed manta rays dancing among divers, underwater caves covered by colored soft corals and gorgonians, and giant Napoleon fish. Dives will include drift diving with pelagic fish, shallow coral pinnacles, night diving with bioluminescent phytoplankton, and ocean passes with strong currents. Cathi Roberts is our Trip Leader.
Where we are staying
The luxurious Duke of York yacht is ideal for a fantastic sea adventure. It’s over 110 feet long and 35 feet wide, with four levels and a Dhoni, a traditional Maldivian boat used for diving, snorkeling, and to land on desert islands. It includes 11 cabins, a spacious outdoor dining area, an air-conditioned indoor saloon with bar, and three decks to enjoy the breathtaking Maldivian scenery, both when sailing and while relaxing when the yacht is moored. 3G wifi is available.

What prior travelers say
“The Maldives was on my bucket list and did not disappoint. On my checkout dive I was surprised by three Thresher sharks! And it only got better, huge gorgonian coral heads, thousands of banner fish, hundreds of sharks, a Napoleon wrasse as big as me, and octopus everywhere. I can’t wait to go back!”
