Conte Max is the luxury liveaboard for adventurers seeking the ultimate dive safari

When Conte Max was launched, the Maldives did not offer many boats of such comfort and standard as to represent an alternative to the Islands’ hotel resorts or for those who did not engage in diving activities to want to try a liveaboard cruise.

With the launch of Conte Max the concept of a cruise combining the rejuvenating wellbeing of the Maldives’ sea and scenery with the wellbeing of an on-board an Ayurvedic Spa was born and in terms of Maldives cruises a totally new trend was established. 

Delve into channels and passages between atolls, as currents sweep playfully throughout the chain of Islands. Rich nutrients attract vast numbers of fish including Napoleon Wrasse, Parrotfish, Snappers, Jacks and Sweetlips and so many more species. Visit famous sites such as the North Atolls, Central Atolls and extreme South Atolls in the Indian Ocean and let the large Channels and vibrant Reefs fulfill your dream dive vacation.


The 33m (108ft) liveaboard and Spa Conte Max is a unique liveaboard concept integrating wellness and dive cruises in their relaxing and luxurious atmosphere. Their experienced and delightful 14 member English and Italian speaking crew will attend to the every need of guests. 20 guests can be accommodated with personalized attention in the 8 roomy, air conditioned cabins. Cabins include: a Suite with a Queen and Single bed,  4 Triple Cabins with a Double and Single bed, and 3 Twin bed cabins. All roomy cabins feature private bathrooms with hot showers, individual climate control, shower gel and towels.

When not diving, guests will be pampered aboard the liveaboard Conte Max. Hang with your buddy in the air conditioned Main Saloon on comfy chairs and watch a movie on the audio/video entertainment system. Hang out at the Bar with your favorite adult drink or really relax with a special Ayurvedic treatment from the onboard Spa or Massage service. The multiple Decks offer a Leisure Deck with cushioned lounge chairs, a shaded Sun Deck or full Sun Deck for napping in the warm, salt-tinged breeze. Perhaps you prefer a more active afternoon between dives, do some Snorkeling, Fishing or embark on a trip to the crystal white sand beaches on a shore excursion.

Conte Max spares no expense in feeding its guests with the freshest cuisine. Varied and plentiful food will be provided, 3 meals a day, served fresh in a buffet style. Western and local fare, fresh fruit and Vegetarian options, as well as snacks all day long, will fuel divers for their action-packed dives. 


Please refer to logistics section of each itinerary to find detailed info on how to get there.
