The Nautilus One liveaboard offers exciting dive cruises in the Maldives from October to May each year. Catering for 14-16 guests, the 30m Nautilus One has 8 cabins, which all feature private en-suite bathrooms, fan, AC, and side window with deck hatch to ensure maximum ventilation on the rooms. There is also a wardrobe, under-bed storage space for cases and shelves for camera equipment and personal items. Cabins are either double or twin, and cabins 2 & 6 can be converted to a triple if needed, ideal for a family. Social areas aboard the Nautilus One include the indoor dining area and bar where a varied menu of local specialties and European cuisine is served, large sun deck with loungers, and outdoor covered lounge, a great place to unwind at the end of the day with a cold drink in hand.

Diving with the Nautilus One Maldives takes place from the spacious dhoni - Araakuri, which has individual storage space for each diver, as well as the compressor on board so you get a good night sleep on the main boat. There is also nitrox available for those certified. Dive trips visit the central atolls of North and South Ari and North and South Male.

An excellent trip which I really enjoyed

There were many highlights to list. I really enjoyed being on the boat, the crew were all so good, friendly and helpful, there was a really good atmosphere on the boat. The beach BBQ was an unforgettable experience. The dive guide was super knowledgeable about the sites dived and was friendly and helpful.

Diving guides are so good, saw sharks and rays almost every dive.

My trip was Dec 03, 2017 to Dec 10, 2017. During these 7 days, I felt amazed for the marine life. Our diving guides, Hampek and Yaan, were very professional for the local diving route. They were aware of which points have more chance to see sharks, sting rays, and manta rays, and it really worked. This time, most of my diving partners came from Germany. We had a good time enjoying seafari. Every night we laid on board, sharing previous experience and suggestions. Maybe in the feature, if I plan to visit Maldives again, I would take a deep south seafari route or stay on some specific islands. This was an amazing trip !!! Shang Wang

Aussergewöhnlich abwechslungsreiche Tausafari mit einigen Highlights

Von der Organisation, wie z.B. die Abholung direkt vom Flughafen, über die sehr gut geführten Tauchgänge, über die gute Küche, bis hin zum "Deko-Bier", alles bestens. Wer eine Tausafari auf den Malediven vor hat und keine 5 Sterne haben muß, ist bei der Nautilus One oder auch TWO bestens aufgehoben. Safari mit Nautilus hat einen "Familiären" touch. Unserer Tour hat allen 15 Tauchern an Bord sehr gefallen. Wir hatten "ausreichend" Haisichtungen, Mantas im "Überfluss" und auch ein Wrack war dabei. Von unserer Gruppe war das bereits der Zweite Trip auf der Nautiluns. Na dann, viel Spass und "gut Luft".
