The Princess Haleema is a beautiful 36m liveaboard scheduling year-round diving cruises to the Maldives. Diving takes place from the dedicated diving Dhoni, leaving more space and a quiet, relaxing atmosphere. The Princess Haleema Liveaboard offers excellent diving itineraries, exploring the North Male, Ari, Vaavu, and South Male Atolls and special trips to the deep south atolls with virtually unexplored diving. Divers will hopefully get the chance to dive & snorkel up close with Manta Rays & Whalesharks.

Topside, the Princess Haleema boasts 11 beautiful cabins, each with individually controlled air-conditioning and en-suite bathrooms, to cater to a maximum of 22 guests. For relaxation, guests aboard the Princess Haleema can soak in the hot tub or soak up the rays on the sundeck, which also has a covered area. There is also an indoor saloon with an entertainment system, bar, and dining area. The 12 experienced and professional boat crew and dive guides of the Princess Haleema are on hand to ensure you have a Maldives Dive Liveaboard trip to remember.

A Perfect Getaway

A wonderful week on Princess Haleema with an amazing group of people and boat staff. Whether you are diving or snorkeling, there is something for everyone. There is nothing like being in the water of the Maldives. You’ll see many turtles, sharks, manta rays, and dolphins. I was so fortunate to see a whale shark this week as well. The boat is super comfortable, and the entire staff are always so friendly and helpful. The food is absolutely amazing, and I love that we always eat together as a group. Highly recommend this boat to explore the Maldives. I will be going back again!

There were 17 dives in total. Everyone had 15 liter tanks. 15 dives lasted only 35 minutes and one dive lasted only 20 min. The reason for this was poor planning of dives by the guide. Night dives we

Anticlimactic. Simple adjustments could be made to vastly improve the experience.

First intimate experience with tiger sharks. First Liveaboard with my girlfriend.

Amazing diving holidays

Everything was great and we were lucky to be almost alone on the dive sites. We enjoyed a lot diving so close to reef sharks that we saw during almost every dives. The dive guides were very professional, calm, trustworthy and easy-going. The marine biologist on the boat is a real plus as well. We also enjoyed very much the fresh food cooked by the amazing chef and all the home made aperitivo. Thanks also for the effort to reduce plastic consumption on board !

Perfect combination of relax & diving

I was sick on the boat, all the guests & staffs & even diving guid care about me. They also provide & share the their own medicine & cures for my throat & seasick & some hurts. It gave me energy to do last dive. It's been most hard liveabaord in my life but It's been also unforgettable liveaboard as much as friendly care & kindness. Besides, Diving is really recommendable. Even with bad weather & waves. They tried their best needless to say considerate dive briefing too. Food is really perfect and you can enjoy your meals with other quests. Even i'm not that big fan of western dish. It was nice and the dessert has been made by chef. awesome. As a asian, a bit sorry about the asian quizine is not ready but Every boat has it's characterics and Not all boat can be perfect. This is diviing boat. not cruise. Stongly recommendable diving with reliable guide. visit sand beach more than once, you can enjoy even after last diving. Want to go again (with a little some food :-)) I missed already.
