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.

Best liveaboard

Roy was so awesome and such a good guide. The crew was very hard working and kept the boat very clean. Food was the best liveaboard food i’ve ever had. 10/10 favorite liveaboard i’ve ever been on. The crew was so amazing.

You get what you pay for and nothing more

No bones about it this is a get what you pay kinda boat. Nothing more. The Mariana is a tired old gal. She’s clean, and ran well, but nothings shiny and new. The price was nice, but everything is extra on this boat including potato chips and pop. Only the cruise director/dive guide/airport greeter/jack of all trades Abdul spoke English out of 11 crew members. There was a second crew member that spoke English, but did little communication with guest. The Mariana is a small boat and in my opinion smaller than the advertised 30 meters and there was very little room for crew and it was awkward that there would be 3 or 4 crew members hanging around and smoking in the guest outdoor areas (rear seating and front seating area) almost all the time during the entire trip at all times of the day, and since they could not speak English they would just chat with each other or were on their cellphones and listening to their native music. At night they would be sleeping all over the boat, back main deck, upper floor, and on the top deck. I have been on over twenty other liveaboard and unfortunate to say this was the most unprofessional boat I have been on. Also there was not dedicated space for charging or prepping camera/video equipment. Sorry to say I would not be recommending this boat in the future.
