Dive & relax in style

Catering for a maximum of 20 guests M/V Carpe Vita began service in February 2011. With 10 cabins divided over 3 decks this yacht provides plenty of space. The Carpe Vita, like the Carpe Diem, caters for dedicated scuba diving, wave surfing ,fishing and tailor made trips for both individuals as well as groups.

The upper deck includes the VIP Suites, the bridge and an aft al-fresco dining area with a fully equipped main bar offering you a wide variety of spirits, wines, liquors, cocktails and beer.

On the beautiful sun deck where you can choose to lounge in the sun or in the ample shaded area or to take a relaxing soak in the Jacuzzi.  In the restaurant you will be served semi-buffet meals prepared by a fine dining chef.

Staffed by a crew of 13, the Carpe Vita is ideally sized and equipped for divers. Up to three dives are conducted daily directly from a 60-foot dhoni, which is fully equipped with a bathroom, hot-water showers and air and nitrox compressors. The dhoni is well-stocked with quality diving gear for those who choose not to bring all or some of their gear.


The Carpe Vita offers 10 night and 7 night itineraries which change depending on the season, each offering a unique dive itinerary based on the seasons, current and pelagic migration patterns.  

Most of these trips offer a classic Central Atolls intinerary, although many add either a north or south extension ....

The itineraries are determined by the atolls the yacht intends to visit. Detailed dive site itineraries are not provided as it is left up to the dive team to select the best dive sites within the outlined atolls.

Your cruise logistics

The Carpe Vita offers 7 and 10 night cruises. The cruises normally leave every Saturday, for 10 day cruises departure days may change.
