The route 10 Atolls, 2 Hemispheres Maldives dive cruise 12 nights include 3 dives per day with 1 nights dive. We always have, at least, 4 guides onboard. We aim to have a maximum of 6 divers per guide, but we usually try to make smaller groups, especially when our guests are not very experienced in the submerged environment. Some dives are relaxing and meditative, some others can be challenging for some of us due to the currents or the rough seas.
Our guides respect the seas and its conditions. For us safety always comes first: we say it and we mean it!
⇒ The first dive happens in the early morning, when the sun comes up suddenly at about 6:00 am. We will wake you up with a big smile, some dry biscuits in the coffee area and the map of the dive spot ready on the screen.
The morning routine
After the briefing, we will jump on the diving dhoni where we will assist you getting ready for the first dive of the day. The wake up call we like the most is the one that happens when our faces get in contact with the salt water: you are not dreaming, that’s your reality!
The first dive culminates with a full and rich breakfast: eggs the way you like, jam, fruit juice, hazelnut cream, honey, pancakes, cakes, yogurt, fresh cut tropical fruit and vegetables. If you are a coffee lover, we can make you happy with our wide variety of mocktails.
