Week cruise, Saturday-Saturday  on board the MALDIVES BLUE FORCE ONE.

This is the best well-known route in Maldives but at the same time the one that offers best and most varied dives. We do this route almost all year long (from August to May) week after week. Thanks to that, we know every detail, atoll, passage, thilas and where and when it is convenient to approach every dive zone.
It is a 7-night route including 6-dive days on board with embark and disembark at Male Airport (18 dives with 2-night dives). 

The habitual itinerary goes by North and South Male Atolls, Felidhoo and Ari.
The aim is to find pelagic, grey sharks, white sharks, black-tip sharks, and in some occasions hammerheads and dolphins, eagle rays and shoals of colorful fishes, morays, tuna fish, gild-head breams, groupers and turtles.  
Drifting dive in water passages and canals, thilas (submerged coral “seamounts”), cleaning stations where big mantas gather together to deworm themselves, will search for the whale shark (and if we are lucky will snorkel and even dive with the biggest fish). We will dive into a full-of-life wreck. Besides, there will be two spectacular night dives, one with mantas and the other with dozens of nurse sharks.

Desert islands and typical fishermen villages are also visited to discover and enjoy a bit more of the country and if the weather allows to do so we will even dine on a desert beach.

Although if you are longing to relax, you can enjoy the solarium and 2 jacuzzis on board.

Arrival in Male. Baggage claim. One of our MALDIVES BLUE FORCE team members will welcome you at the airport. Transfer by dhoni to MALDIVES BLUE FORCE ONE. Welcome cocktail. Accommodation and introduction of the team and general briefing of the cruise.

During the cruise a program for divers with 16 day and night dives is developed and combined with activities for non-divers and diving courses, snorkeling (guided for children), fishing, visits to pristine beaches, visits to inhabited islands, movies for children (even in 3D), banana, paddle board, jacuzzi… The anchorages for the night will be next to desert islands which are visited with guides (if the logistics allow to do so).
