Explore the Maldives
Having lived and dived in the Maldives for many years, it’s no surprise the Macana team are privy to some pretty amazing dive spots. They are always on the look out for new and exciting places to dive, whilst creating a dive holiday structure tailored to everyone’s needs.
The main route on offer is the ‘Classic Maldives’, but don’t be fooled in to thinking this is just any old trip. There is no set schedule, and the experienced captain, crew and dive guides will choose the best route according to the season, weather conditions and guests needs. Itineraries are flexible and designed around what everyone would like to see!
On top of the Classic Maldives itinerary, during certain times of the year special ‘Adventure Dive Cruises’ are on offer. The boats will venture off the beaten track and explore the ‘Extreme South’ of the Maldives. Having only recently been opened up for tourism, the only way to truly explore this amazing area is by liveaboard. Visit remote islands and pristine beaches, and dive in nutrient rich waters with large schools of fish and chance encounters with dolphins, mantas & sharks. Due to the strong currents, these dives are generally recommended for more experienced divers.
Meet the Crew
The dive guides and crew on board all three boats will bring their experience, passion and enthusiasm to help make your trip a memorable one. Each cruise director has at least 5-7 years’ experience in the Maldives, and the crew themselves can interchange amongst the boats to cover all guests needs, such as languages and interests. You can rest assured that you are in good hands when you vacation with the Macana team!
