Diving

Seafari Explorer 1 itineraries explore dive sites in the deep South to the far North on 14-night cruises. The 7-night cruises concentrate on the classic Maldives route, including South, North Male, Ari, and Vaavu.

When scuba diving in the Maldives, you can expect to have encounters with whale sharks, manta rays, and several species of sharks. At least once during the dive safari, you can make yourself ready for some spectacular night diving.

MY Seafari Explorer’s diving activities take place from a special dhoni. All diving gear, tanks, and compressors stay on this vessel to keep noises and cluttering away from the main ship. There is a possibility to fill tanks with nitrox for divers who are certified.

Courses are available on request. Weights, weight belts, and aluminum tanks with standard yoke and DIN valves are included. You can rent Special gear at a surcharge. Dive professionals guide all dives.
