The Maavahi is a traditional Maldivian cruiser perfect for exploring the stunning atolls and world-class dive sites of the Maldives. With just 14 guests on board, the Maavahi liveaboard offers more personalised service and intimate atmosphere. The spacious indoor dining room and bar and al-fresco dining area are where delicious meals are served throughout the day. For relaxation, there is an outdoor covered terrace, perfect for catching up with friends or just enjoying the scenery. The partially shaded sundeck with loungers is a great place to laze in-between dives or look for dolphins. On the lower deck are 7 cabins, each with a private en-suite bathroom, lower double bed, upper single bed, charging ports, reading lights and storage space.

Itineraries aboard the Maavahi yacht are 8 - 10-days long and explore some of the best dive sites in the region. The Ari Atolls, North and South Male Atolls and Central Atolls are known for abundant marine life, including reef sharks, whale sharks, eagle rays, turtles and of course, manta rays. The Deep South itineraries are for more experienced divers who enjoy the thrill of drift dives and strong currents. A Shark lovers dream, the Southern Atolls are also home to tiger and thresher sharks.

Whichever itinerary you choose, you are in safe hands with the experienced and professional crew of the Maavahi liveaboard. Call us or book online today to start planning your Maldives liveaboard safari.
