Renovated in 2021, the 8-cabin Ocean Divine liveaboard is a modern, well-equipped dive boat perfect for guests seeking proximity to Male, and a small, friendly atmosphere for a total of 16 guests onboard. A separate dhoni, carrying all the dive equipment and supplies, will sail side-by-side the Ocean Divine, which means the full 34 meters/112 feet of the vessel is designed to optimize for relaxation and enjoyment between the dives. When not diving, you may opt to lounge on comfortable sunbeds on the top deck overlooking the panoramic views, fish/paddleboard/surf, or make new friends in an indoor living room filled with Balinese furniture.

Diving in the Maldives is enjoyable year-round, and the Ocean Divine sails to the magnificent region of Central Atolls including North and South Male, Vaavu, Ari and Rasdoo where you are likely to encounter mantas and pelagics, including whale sharks. For a longer, unforgettable adventure to the remote islands, consider the Deep South Route where you will dive some of the best sites in the Maldives. Managed by a crew with over 2 decades of experience diving the waters of the Maldives’ atolls, you can be assured that your dream dive trip is carefully planned and executed to fulfill your wish list.

Excellent experience on Ocean Divine

The diving first of all, was incredible! The boat is comfortable, water pressure good, air con works well, the food was well prepared and had good variety. I am a vegetarian so I missed on many of the specialties but still greatly enjoyed my meals. There was fresh fruit every day, fresh caught fish most nights, fresh squeezed juices, desserts and good cocktails. The dive masters Anais, Alan and Ripon were knowledgeable and careful of our safety and also aware of the sustainability of diving. They were friendly and professional. There are two things I think could be improved: we spent 2 nights in the Male harbor which was unpleasant with not so pretty city in sight, numerous boats and constant airplanes passing. Also, on the last day, we felt in the way. There was a lot of preparation for the guests arriving next day. It would be best if a group activity - such as a city tour- could be organized instead so that the current guests can be off the boat during the deliveries, unpacking etc. Overall an amazing trip which I highly recommend.

Fantastic Diving

Just came back from Maldives and had a spectacular time diving. The dive masters Pablo and Xanath were phenomenal. They made environment protection and safety a priority. When possible, they tried to time the dives so that we were not with other groups and had the site to ourselves.

The best diving experience so far with amazing food, staff and guides. Saw everything I wanted - Mantas, Sharks(white tip, black tip, grey and silver), Whale shark, Eagle rays, Schools of Baracudas, j

Best diving so far. Great food and a small group size of 11 people in our trip. It was a all Nitrox boat with amazing guides. Special shout out to Alan who helped us see amazing stuff plus improved our diving. Also, shout out to Chandana, who was an amazing bartender and a great human being. My wife had a birthday and the whole crew made it so special! there was a cake plus Alan had a card 30mts underwater and the crew made a heart with the towels - touched. The food on the boat by the chef Baby Anthony and his assitance was amazing and was definitely a highlight. Lastly, big hug to Ripon, the guy for everything - captain, guide, friend.. Overall Had the best vacation ever.

BIG WOW!

Saw everything that I wanted (and was promised) to see!!! Mantas, (whale) sharks, turtles, zillions of colorful fishes/corals and sooo much more, all this in warm cristal clear water! Our divemasters, Xanat and Pablo, were really cool and fun to dive with, with a perfect knowledge of the dive spots! Every dive was a WOW one!! - only that they always disappeared during water fights :-)) I need to add that the dive crew was just so nice and helpful. What fantastic way diving in these conditions! The Ocean Divine was more then a fantastic way to cruise these islands! A big big thank to the cook (great cuisine!!) and the whole crew, always attentive to your needs with such a smile!! Another WOW for them too :-) Wishing all the best of luck and a great future to Gaelle, David and the very bubbly Dune *
