Ocean Divine

One of the best known boats in the Maldives, the Ocean Divine, is a beautifully appointed 110-foot dive boat cruising the many atolls of Maldives. Dive itineraries vary depending on the season and weather and the crew is excellent finding the best spots for manta rays and reef sharks. This five-star vessel offers six deluxe staterooms. Each room features a porthole view, wardrobe, bathrobes, toiletries, fresh towels daily and individual climate controls. To make your diving holiday exceptional, a highly trained masseuse, top level chef, friendly bartender and knowledgeable dive guides are on staff. In total, a crew of ten is on hand to provide superior service.

Up from the accommodation deck, a large salon area accommodates everyone with plenty of comfortable seating, and on the sundeck you will find both covered and sunny spots to relax and enjoy the views. There is a new sunset lounge area on the top deck, a perfect place to enjoy a drink and listen to music.

To access the area’s shallow atolls, all diving is done from a 52-foot self-contained tender. All dive gear is stored and tanks filled onboard the tender. Ocean Divine offers Nitrox at an extra cost.
