Conte Max

conte max ext opt

When Conte Max was launched in 2004, she was one of the earliest to offer spa cruises.  Her itineraries are largely in the central atolls, but she's added some tantalizing extreme-south trips.

 A word from Dom :  "Nice, intimate, well-run yacht with a custom-built dhoni. One of my favorites. And, she includes free nitrox......"   Dominick Macan

Conte Max offers both a lovely aft-deck dining area and an indoor dining room.  Meals are generally not buffet-style, but served at the table. Menus include Italian, international and Maldivian cuisine, with abundant fresh fish and the chefs are always ready to accommodate guests dietary requests.

Itineraries


Conte Max concentrates on central and southern atoll trips. She does the Central Atolls much of the year and from early January through early April cruises to the exciting Extreme South from Huvadhoo to Laamu for lots of fabulous shark action!


Travel & cruise logistics


Most of the trips begin and end in Male and the closest airport is Male Intl (MLE). Pickup time at the airport is according to your flights. Give yourself enough time to go through immigration and pick up your luggage. At the exit of the terminal a crew member will meet and escort you to the Conte Max.

Your last dives will be on the second to last day in the morning. Conte Max docks back in Male in the evening on the second to last day and disembarkation is the following morning. Guests will then be transferred to Male airport.

This schedule is altered for Deep South trips which include a domestic flight one way.  Full info for these trips is available upon request.
