Maldives
Carpe Diem & Dhoni, Maldives

Carpe Diem is a 35m liveaboard built to high standards and accommodating 20 guests in 10 ensuite, air- conditioned cabins divided over three decks.

  • Upper Deck – 1 Suite & 1 Deluxe cabin
  • Main Deck – 2 Double cabins
  • Lower Deck – 6 Standard cabins (4 with double & bunk, 2 with single & bunk)

The boat is accompanied by a diving dhoni (tender) and small speedboat. The local dive team of three has an abundance of experience and cater for any experience although, to get the most from the trip, the Advanced Open Water qualification is recommended. Carpe Diem offers a standard three dives a day. The spacious dive deck has fresh water showers and toilet. Nitrox is available at extra charge.

The main deck features the briefing and lounge area with coffee/tea and drinking water 24 hours a day. It also has a wide flat-screen TV, DVD/MP3 player. Outside there is another sitting area in the shade with comfortable cushions where guests can have afternoon tea whilst taking in the striking colours of the Indian Ocean.

The upper deck has a sofa/reading area, in house library, the Suite and Deluxe cabins, office and dive rental equipment room. The main open air dining and bar area is at the back of the boat where you will be served semi-buffet meals. A staircase leads to a 115 sqm sun deck, which is partially shaded.

What makes the Carpe Diem stand out even more is the service provided by the dedicated crew, some of whom have been with the company for many years.
