Nautilus Two, Maldives


The spacious 43m Nautilus Two liveaboard Maldives caters to up to 24 guests in 12 cabins. With an average cabin size of 20 m², each cabin has a double bed, single bed, desk, mirror, large closet, wardrobe, shelves, and AC, making them extremely spacious. There is also a private en-suite bathroom with a massage shower. There is plenty of room to relax whilst onboard the Nautilus Two. Meals are served in the parlour, where a 5m ex-fishing dhoni serves as the central buffet table showcasing the varied menu of local specialties and delicious European cuisine. The bar offers cold beer on tap and a wide selection of red and white wines and spirits. The bow of the boat is a popular hang-out area due to the cool breeze and shade, and a great place to enjoy the views or take a dip in the jacuzzi. The huge sundeck has enough loungers for everyone and also offers stunning views.

Divers are taken care of from Dheeriyaa - the dedicated diving dhoni. All the compressors are located here, ensuring a quiet night's sleep aboard the mother ship. The dhoni is spacious and offers enough individual storage space for all divers. Nitrox is available upon request and the dhoni will remain nearby during all dives for added safety. A typical diving day exploring the Maldivian atolls usually involves 3 dives per day, including some night dives through the week. It is highly recommended that divers have at least 40 dives and deep diving experience to make the most of the dive sites available.

The dive guides and crew of the Nautilus Two Maldives are waiting to take you on your next dive adventure. Call us or book online today to reserve your space.

14 fabulous days spent aboard the Nautilus

The dives were amazing, thanks to Hampek and Ziad (dive guides), it was a pleasure to dive with you. The whale shark we saw at the end of the dive is an exceptional memory... We also saw manta rays, eagle rays, gray or white tip sharks, napoleons, dolphins, but also nudibranchs, pipefishes, beautiful corals... 38 dives in total, including 2 at night. The Dhoni staff was very kind to help us outfit us. The room was spacious and clean, the bed comfortable. The food was delicious: eggs cooked every morning according to our preferences, typical and varied food. The service was impeccable. Thanks to Mister B. for his cocktails. I highly recommend this diving cruise !!! Marion et Kevin

A magical experience touring the South Ari Atoll.

The diving was everything the Maldives promised and the Nautilus Two is as comfortable as a boat can get whilst remaining authentic. All dives were exciting and varied with one fantastic night dive which was the highlight of our trip. Just one comment: the boat should offer more night dives as there is so much to see after dark contrary to many other places around the world. A great experience all round so thank you to the whole crew.

A fantastic experience, highly recommended

We had an amazing boat (aesthetic, comfort, attention to details, and lots of space); all members of the crew were very friendly, competent, and helpful; the diving programme was very well organised, diving guides were highly competent (thank you Isey for wonderful dives!); fellow divers were all very nice people and expert divers, so that there was a really pleasant atmosphere on board and under water.

An amazing 11 days visiting the best Ari has to offer!

The knowledgable and flexible diving staff - a couple times we had to make slight alterations to the dive sites we'd planned to go to either because of weather or because they'd be too busy with other boats. The alternative dive sites were just as good, and we always saw something interesting or new!

Brilliant dive trip, led by wonderful guides, very comfortable boat and great food!

The sunset night dive with the large number of Nurse and other sharks. Sting Ray City was amazing, as was the Manta Ray dive. Personally, i would have liked to have had the option for more night dives. The boat was really spacious and very clean, the food plentiful and varied, the crew were very friendly and helpful. Ali and Coco were really patient and great dive guides. Boat crew very helpful with equipment when needed. Wonderful trip!
