Blue Shark One, Maldives


The 30m Blue Shark One yacht offers good value dive liveaboard trips in the Maldives. With 9 cabins on board located on the lower deck, she caters to a maximum of 16 guests. Each cabin has a double plus single bed, individually controlled air-conditioning and en-suite bathrooms. The Blue Shark One liveaboard also has an air-conditioned salon and dining room where 3 meals per day plus snacks will be served buffet-style. The cuisine is a mixture of international and Maldivian dishes, with a wide variety to suit everyone. The large sundeck has cushioned loungers and beanbags to allow plenty of space for relaxing in between dives. There is also an additional partially shaded outdoor lounge area perfect for enjoying the sea breeze and stunning sunsets. With a focus on being environmentally-friendly, the Blue Shark One offers refillable aluminium bottles, reusable bamboo straws and biodegradable toiletries in the bathrooms.

Diving takes place from the dedicated dive Dhoni, to maximise quiet and space on the main vessel. The Blue Shark 1 liveaboard offers several exciting diving itineraries. The 7-night Centre Atolls is available year-round and offers the chance to dive with manta rays, whale sharks and reef sharks.

Amazing!!! My only complaint on the trip is that I had to disembark the boat..😄

Everything about this trip was on point. From the BBQ on the beach and the live music, to the amazing crew and chef on the boat, to the great diving and dive guides. Dove with a Whaleshark and it was amazing. Top notch organization!!!🐙🦈🐟🐋

Very clean and comfortable, great diving and guides. No credit card services on board, bring cash :-(

Nurse shark twilight dive, some of the pinnacles are marvelous. No luck with hammerheads and whale sharks, yet.

The cabins are cozy, if small. The crew is very friendly and does everything to make it a memorable trip.
