Are you looking for the best diving liveaboard in the Maldives? Look no further than the Maldives Blue Force One, which has been awarded twice by the Liveaboard Association of the Maldives as ‘the Best Boat Built in the Maldives’, and is considered by premier travel agencies as one of the top ten liveaboards
in the world.
The boat may be exceptional, but it is the wide experience of the Blue Force team that makes a difference too. After 25 years of diving in the Maldives, they know the reefs like the back of their hands and have utilized this experience to create some truly spectacular itineraries.
They offer a guaranteed weekly departure every Saturday, and routes available include Central Atolls (all year round except June) and a South Hemisphere route (in February and March). In addition to these epic trips, which will offer the chance of encounters with pelagics, including whale sharks, manta rays, tiger sharks, hammerhead sharks and thresher sharks, alongside shipwrecks and thilas smothered in multi-coloured flora and fauna, Blue Force One also runs special photo and video workshops, family weeks, manta-specific expeditions and rebreather weeks.
So what can you expect onboard? Well, plenty of excellent meals – including a BBQ on a desert island – and the chance to chill out on a sank bank, take to the seas on a kayak or SUP, relax in the jacuzzi, or go play on a Horizon SCR or underwater scooter. With four dive guides and a videographer on board, you are in safe hands during your 18 dives.
Blue Force One conducts its diving from a purpose-built 23-metre dhoni, which was launched in October 2020.
TOP DIVE SITE
Hanifaru Bay – One, two, three manta rays – and onwards and upwards, maybe even six, seven or even eight – on a single dive site is quite common on a trip to the Maldives. But when the count starts to hit 40 or 50 and it is literally impossible to keep calculating the exact number of mantas swimming in all directions, you can only be in one place – Hanifaru Bay in the Baa Atoll.
