DIVING

Diving takes place from the custom built 20-meter long Dhoni, a separate boat that follows Carpe Novo around the Maldives. There are 12-litre tanks with air. Nitrox is available for those who are certified. There are freshwater showers on the diving deck to rinse yourself off after each dive. Freshwater buckets are also available to rinse dive equipment such as cameras, dive computers and fins.

There are additional diving training courses you can follow on the Carpe Novo. Extend your diving time with a nitrox course or earn your advanced certificate and explore the deeper waters. PADI courses are also available on board to be done during our trips. The wide range of activities offered on Carpe Novo makes cruising in the Maldives so much fun!
