The EcoPro Mariana is a traditional Maldivian safari boat that offers guests the best diving and comfort in the Maldives. The boat is 28 meters/100 feet long and has 9 cabins, each with its bathroom and air-conditioning. There are 3 decks and outdoor dining. A second boat accompanies the EcoPro Mariana while carrying the dive gear, and it takes the divers to the sites. This allows for more comfort and quiet on the main boat. The EcoPro Mariana takes a maximum of 16 guests to provide the best service possible. The crew is well-trained in eco-conscious activities, and onboard guests are offered biodegradable shampoo and reusable items like straws. Drinking water production is through a reverse osmosis system. EcoPro Mariana also collaborates with NGOs like Parley for the Oceans and Manta Trust to help protect the delicate underwater marine life and corals. 

The boat travels to the best atolls in the Maldives, including North Male, South Male, North Ari, South Ari, Vaavu, (Rasdhoo), and others, depending on the season. The EcoPro Mariana offers year-round tours with experienced guides who take guests to see the best that the Maldives offers. Drift dives, wrecks, pinnacles, world-famous night dives, and swimming with manta rays and whale sharks are some of the diving experiences EcoPro Mariana guests enjoy.

A good trip for varied diving in the Maldives with an experienced dive guide and professional crew

The stand out dive was the night dive with the Manta's. Spending an hour just watching them dance in front of your eyes was amazing. Everybody on the boat was super amazed.

Great crew and new friends

I was in the 2 weeks liverboard in the Deep South of the Maldives. I regret we didn’t have the chance to have a welcome cocktail in order to introduce the crew, what they are doing on the boat and also the guests and their expectations and a goodbye cocktail. It’s always a nice way to start and finish the trip. The boat is not fancy but it’s comfortable enough. The cabin is spacious with aircon The food is mostly the same everyday: rice/ noddles/ potatoes and curry vegetables with meat or fish. Don’t expect something special for vegetarian. I must say that it wasn’t diversify enough and too basic. Before diving , a little something to eat (more than just the Oreo biscuit)will be nice, same after the dives. The barbecue is a nice way to end the trip together and unfortunetly we didn’t have it. Regarding the dives, I was quiet disappointed about them even if we had really nice encounter with the nurse shark and tiger shark. We had a few dives where we had to swim around 10 min or more in order to reach the reef. Finally, we had 6 days and a half without nitrox because the analyzer was broken and we run out of nitrox. The crew was nice and helpful.

Dive dhoni has plenty of space for each guest. Friendly and professional staff. Missed one dive due to bad weather and the crew went for extra effort to do an additional dive

Umwerfend gut

Das gesamte Paket stimmte bei dieser Woche. Es gibt nichts einzelnes herauszuheben, da alles sehr gut war. Super Tauchgänge die gut geführt waren, gutes Essen, eine gute Crew, sauberes Schiff usw
