Comfort

Serenity is just that, the serene base to catch your breath between dives and take in all the beauty of the Maldives and its marine life. Chill out on one of the comfortable sofas in the spacious air-conditioned lounge on the main deck where you can relax or watch TV.

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

During the day, the open and partly shaded upper deck is fantastic for soaking up the incredible Maldivian atmosphere. 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 wonderful 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 points of entry and exit for your dive, are from the large Dhoni that follows Serenity around the Maldives. During the trip, you can also store all your equipment here, so you have more space onboard for maximum comfort. Serenity is rebreather friendly. You can dive with air, and for certified divers free Nitrox is available. 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 levels of divers, however, unpredictable and strong currents can be expected in certain areas. The recommended depth for some dives is below 18m, and advanced or Deep Diver training is advised. Some dives may be too challenging for inexperienced and beginner divers;the Cruise Director may ask them to skip them.
