Comfort

MV Emperor Serenity is just that, the serene base to catch your breath between dives and take in all the Maldives’ beauty and its marine life.

The living space onboard is a great place to chill out on one of the comfortable sofas in the spacious air-conditioned salon on the main deck where you can relax or watch TV.

Hang out at the bar and share your diving experiences with traveling companions.

The covered and open area on the upper deck is fantastic for soaking up the incredible Maldivian atmosphere during the day. In the evenings, it is perfect for watching the sun go down over the horizon and then gazing at the clear, star-filled sky.

We mustn’t forget to mention the incredible sun deck where you can lie on a sunbed and work on that perfect tan or take a rejuvenating nap before your next dive.

Catering

Diving takes stamina, and the best way to keep your energy levels up is with good food. The onboard chef uses delicious, fresh ingredients to provide four buffet-style meals with a mix of delicious Asian and Western cuisine every day. Coffee and tea are available all day.

Diving

The perfect entry points for your dive spot every time are from the Emperor Serenity large dhoni tender. During the trip, you can also store all your equipment to have more space onboard for maximum comfort.

Experienced dive guides will show you around the many dive sites the Maldives has to offer. With large pelagic marine life such as sharks, manta rays, and whale sharks, this will be a liveaboard diving cruise of a lifetime.

Serenity is rebreather friendly. You can dive with air, and for certified divers, we offer free Nitrox. Large freshwater buckets are also available to rinse dive equipment such as cameras, dive computers, and fins.

Many of the dives are suitable for all divers levels; however, unpredictable and strong currents can be expected in certain areas. Some dives’ recommended depth is below 18m, and advanced or Deep Diver training is advised.

Non-divers are more than welcome to join the dive safari and get a $50 voucher to spend onboard.

Awaiting you are channels, drifts, and pinnacles where you have every chance of meeting mantas, whale sharks, and mesmerizing marine life of so many varieties. We don’t follow an exact itinerary; flexibility is the word so that no matter what time of the year you visit, this underwater world is yours (and ours) for the exploring.

This itinerary gives you a marine mix of big fish such as shark and manta dives and reef dives, reef fish, morays, and the abundant macro life. Get up close at the cleaning stations without disturbing the locals! One of the best-known dive sites is Maaya Thila; this pinnacle is approximately 30m in diameter and falls away to reveal sharks and fish aplenty.

night dive from sheltered moorings here is a must! And the boat will also aim to find whale sharks so you can get in the water and snorkel with them…as long as they stay around long enough!

The first and last night of each trip is spent on board at the port.

Highlights:

  • Rasdhoo Atoll: Hammerhead Dive, Beautiful Reef with Pelagics
  • North Ari Atoll: Grey Reef Sharks, Maaya Thila Night Dive, Multiple Manta Cleaning Stations
  • South Ari Atoll: Whalesharks, Beautiful Pinnacles
  • South Male Atoll: Grey Reef Sharks, Eagle Rays, Other Pelagics, Beautiful Macro Wreck
  • Vaavu Atoll: Grey Reef Sharks, Eagle Rays, Other Pelagics, Traditional Maldivian Channel Diving

No minimum number of dives needed, but you should be comfortable with drift dives as currents can be strong.

Many of the dives on the Best of Maldives, Manta Madness, and Pelagic Magic itineraries are suitable for all divers levels; however, unpredictable and strong currents are to be expected in certain areas. Inexperienced and beginner divers may find some dives challenging and may be asked by the Cruise Director to skip dives that are not suitable for their diving experience. On some dives, the recommended depth is below 18m; therefore, advanced or Deep Diver training is advised.

All diving is from dhonis or zodiacs to give precise entry and exit points. Experienced divers can dive in a buddy pair unguided.
