How to enjoy this itinerary

Love, care and professionalism

The Route Manta Madness Maldives include 3 dives per day with 2 night dive during the week, (or 2 night dives during 10 nights or more trips). 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. 

More than one hour of relaxation or a visit to a desert island are possible choices before the second dive, which will occur between 10:00 am and 11:30 am. 

It is already time for lunch. Our buffets usually satisfy all tastes: healthy and tasty are the right objective to describe our cuisine. 

Afternoon and beyond

A little power nap on the sundeck, or the quiet of your cabin, is a mandatory step to recharge your batteries before the third dive of the day and the activities prepared for you by our crew during the evening.

You must be curious about the activities we organize during the week to fill your time with unforgettable memories: well, we look forward to them, too!  During the route Manta Madness Maldives we usually organize happy hours onboard or at a paradisiac location during sunset. And marine biology lessons taught by one of our experts, a visit to a local island to explore the way locals live in the “land without land”. And a BBQ dinner on the beach with tasty food and music entertainment, fishing trip at sunset, karaoke or cinema night, and so much more…the limit is your creativity! 

Since dives are never enough for some of us, we offer hard core divers the opportunity to make extra dives, as a fourth dive of the day. Participation in the extra dive involves an extra cost which varies according to the number of participants.
