Description

Theia Maldives is an exclusive liveaboard in the Maldives for only 16 Divers with the high standard of service, comfort and luxury of a private yacht.

There are huge advantages to diving on a boat that takes only a small number of passengers, it is so much less intrusive to marine life when a maximum of 16 Divers jump into the water rather than 25, so you as a Diver will have a much better opportunity to come close up to big fish like Sharks, Mantas and more…

Of course, add to that the more personal service and attention to detail both on board and in the water, and you have an ideal liveaboard experience.

The Maldives' crystal clear waters are home to Mantas, Whale Sharks and Reef Sharks, not to mention the brilliant Nudibranchs and Ghost Pipefish who hide among its Wrecks, Coral Gardens, Channels and Pinnacles. 

What you can expect

The beautiful 32 meters MV Theia liveaboard offers luxury and comfort to discover the Maldives Underwater World. The dive boat, built in 2006 and last renovated in 2010, was designed with luxury and comfort in mind. Exploring the Maldivian Atolls with the Theia, on a Scuba Diving Safari, will sure be a great adventure!

There’s a maximum of 16 Divers welcomed on the Theia on each diving cruise. Indeed, with 8 overly spacious and comfortable cabins plus many social areas, that’s more than enough space for everyone! On request, the Theia can accommodate up to 18 guests, as 2 cabins can be converted into triple occupancy rooms.

Every beautiful cabin comes with air-conditioning and an en-suite bathroom. Also, all the cabins have at least 1 double bed and often a second day bed. Plus, each room features a lot of space, wardrobe storage and even a safety box.

The Lower Deck features 4 Superior cabins and 1 Deluxe cabin. The Deluxe room has a Double bed and the Superior rooms all have a comfortable double bed and day beds. Furthermore, the Main Deck has one Sea View cabin while the Top Deck has two Sea View Suites. The Upper Deck Suites are overly spacious and have Open Decks to the front and rear of the Suite.

There’s plenty of communal areas on the boat that every guest will have a sense of being on a private cruise! The Main Deck is home to the outdoor Dining Area, where the meals are served. Also, the Theia has the service of a Chef and a Sous Chef to make sure you eat fresh, fine dishes everyday! You’ll also find the “Manta Bar” as well as a Lounge with complete entertainment system on this deck.

Furthermore, the Upper Deck has open air lounge areas both at the aft and the front. Indeed, these are perfect, partially shaded spots, to enjoy a drink and admire the view. It’s also where you’ll find the Captain in his wheelhouse - step by for a little chat!

Finally, take a few steps up and you will discover a sun lover’s paradise. Indeed, the Sundeck is massive and features plenty of comfortable, cushioned lounging chairs! Plus, there’s a Bar and couches for you to use. This spot is a jewel at night, while you sip on a drink and watch the Maldives‘s starry sky!

The beautiful wooden hulled Theia has much to give to it’s guests. Indeed, the privately owned dive vessel offers a customizable and luxurious experience.
