The Maldives is a nation of islands in the Indian Ocean spanning across the equator. The Maldives lie southwest of Sri Lanka and India near the equator. We will fly to Velana International Airport, located on Hulhule Island in the North Male Atoll, near Male's capital island. We will be greeted by our vessel crew and transported to the luxury Liveaboard Emperor Explorer.

Liveaboard Emperor Explorer is the epitome of luxury. You will be spoiled cruising the Maldives atolls on this magnificent and spacious vessel. Launched in 2019, the 138-foot M/V Emperor Explorer is modern and safe with all amenities a diver could need on four large decks. With guests' comfort top of mind, 13 staterooms have their own bathroom facilities and are individually air-conditioned. The main salon is vast, with scenic views during dinner, and the upper deck includes a spacious outdoor lounge area and a hot tub. Diving is conducted from a sizeable custom-built dhoni. No ordinary tender, it has ample space for all divers, cameras, and gear.

Our 7 night/8day Adventure takes on the special Hanifaru & North Itinerary. If you love manta rays, this itinerary is made for you! It runs around the New Moon phase to improve manta encounters.

It includes Baa Atoll (Hanifaru Bay, Nelivaru & Dhiggu Thilas, and many more), North Male (pinnacles, Lankan manta point), and Lhaviyani Atoll (Fushivaru Thila, Kuredu Express & caves). Water temperatures year-round are in the mid 80's. Dives are all in the 100 foot and shallower range where all the big animals are. We can expect up to 26 dives!
