    Superbly run operation North Male – South Male –Vaavu – Meemu – South Ari – North Male Atolls (CD), Maldives in May

    Carpe Diem is a spacious, modern and well run live-aboard. Management obviously takes great pride in their fleet and this is reflected by the entire crew. The dive dhoni is well equipped and has space for all the divers Customer satisfaction is the goal of this operation and they succeeded during the week we were on the Carpe Diem. Hopefully we will be able to experience this again in the future
