Orion-

Launched in September 2009, the 135-foot safari boat Orion is at home in the clear waters of the Maldives. Six of the 17 crew members were actually part of the team that built the boat and they are proud of their contribution and see that the boat is impeccably maintained. Onboard there are twelve guest cabins, eight on the lower deck and four on the upper deck. All cabins have private bathrooms, plasma televisions. Lower deck cabins include four twin / double cabins and three double cabins plus a junior suite with a king-size bed, an extra single bed and a bathtub. The upper deck cabins include three twin / double cabins and the large master suite with a private outdoor area with a jacuzzi. 

Common areas onboard the Orion offer a large sundeck with loungers, a jacuzzi, cocktail area, and library. The dining area has also a bar, and plenty of seating. All diving is done from the 45-foot dhoni, which makes the main boat more spacious, and quiet as all dive gear, tanks, compressors and Nitrox is carried on the dhoni. There are four dive guides for each departure to facilitate smaller groups split based on experience. Orion dives throughout the Maldives on 7- to 9-night departures.
