M/Y blue Voyager liveaboard allows you to experience the true wonder of the underwater atolls in the Indian Ocean
This stunning group of atolls is host to an underwater paradise brimming with marine wildlife. Located south west of Sri Lanka in the warm, tropical waters of the Indian Ocean, the Maldives are made up of over 1,200 tiny, low-lying coral islands surrounded by white sand. The abundance of marine life in the Maldives can be attributed to the ideal growing conditions the waters provide for coral reefs. These coral reefs are home to more than 700 species of fish, many of which are sadly endangered.
The Maldives is tropical all year round and water temperatures range from 27°C to 29°C. Divers have the opportunity to see a huge range of beautiful hard and soft corals as well as the famous Manta Rays, Whale Sharks, Sharks, Turtles, Barracudas, Jacks and Tuna.
Experience the first class diving in this unique underwater world onboard our very own fleet vessel M/Y blue Voyager
The first blue o two fleet vessel in the Maldives, M/Y blue Voyager was built specifically for Divers and originally sailed in the Red Sea. She underwent a major refurbishment in 2015 before relocating to the Maldives with further updates in the summer of 2016 and 2017. M/Y blue Voyager welcomes 26 Divers on board with spacious modern comfort, providing the best Maldivian diving experience.
M/Y blue Voyager is a 37-metre, steel hulled vessel that boasts three roomy double cabins and ten twin cabins. She features a separate outdoor Dining Area, a Bar and Sky Lounge, as well as a Jacuzzi. A shaded seating area can be found on the Middle Deck, plus three different Sun Decks: one Viewing Deck located at the front of the Middle Dck, an Open Air Deck on the Upper Deck and an Ocean Ddeck at the stern of the boat, all providing comfortable seating and loungers.
The Ocean Deck is a unique feature allowing guests to relax in the open air while close to the water. On many evenings the flood lights will illuminate the water just off the ocean deck to attract plankton which brings the Manta Rays and Whale Sharks. There have been many close sightings of feeding Mantas and Whale Sharks, have your camera ready and you might even get splashed!
M/Y blue Voyager is known for providing ample space for all guests on board due to the seven different lounging areas spread across three decks. It will never feel crowded, in fact many guests enjoy the social atmosphere that provides a comfortable setting for individuals and groups alike. We know most Divers are only in their cabins to sleep so we've made sure the rest of the vessel is as comfortable and spacious as possible.
However when you do need some down time in your cabin, you have your own entertainment system with TV, films, and USB port. Each cabin has air conditioning, en-suite facilities, and plenty of storage space. Extra towels are already stocked in your cabin, with separate towels for the Dive Deck as well as our popular robes for pre- and post-dive comfort. If you enjoy having an ocean view, consider upgrading to a Premium Double Cabin (Middle Deck) or Premium Twin Cabin (Upper Deck) with large windows as well as all-new interior furnishings.
The Chef and Assistant Chef will delight you with delectable local and Western cuisine.
Special dietary requests are well catered for, including Vegetarian, Vegan and Gluten-free (with advance notification please). Breakfast and Lunch are buffet style and Dinner is served family-style for each of the tables in the alfresco dining area, with the crew ready to assist and provide refills as needed. You'll never go hungry with the abundant spread including appetizers, mains, desserts, snacks between dives, and the most delicious, fresh and local tropical fruits. The Bar man is onhand to serve beer, wines and freshly-made cocktails which are simply added to your tab for onboard payments.
Ports of Departure and How to Get There
Male International Airport on Hulhule Island, 10 minutes by boat from the capital city Male, is where most arrivals first set foot on Maldivian soil. It is well connected and easy to get to. The islands are 4 hours flight from Singapore, around 13 hours from London, and 3 hours from Dubai. Colombo, the capital city of Sri Lanka, is some 45 minutes flight away. There is an Airport Development Charge for all passengers above 2 years of age departing from Male airport, collected at the check-in counters.
Departure ports are detailed for each trip in the 'itinerary' section in each of our liveaboard boat pages. They will also be sent to you during the enquiry and booking process. In some cases a boat may only depart the area the day after the trip begins. This means you can arrive quite late on the first day and still board before they set sail the following morning.
