The final itinerary is, of course, always dependant upon weather, sea conditions and where the best animal sightings are at any particular time of year.

The most common itineraries are:

ADDU to HUVADHOO (7 Nights)
This trip is more for divers who are used to and love current dives and channel dives, it’s a mix of channel and outer reef diving.

MALE to LAAMU ATOLL  / OR LAAMU ATOLL to MALE (7 nights)
This cruise is for those who love to dive channels.  You'll have sharks, eagle rays, green turtles and fantastic hard coral.
(This cruise includes a domestic flight one way.  Extra charges apply.)

LAAMU to HUVADHOO / OR HUVADHOO to LAAMU (7 nights)
Another itinerary which offers great channel dives and all the above characters.
(This involves round-trip 2 domestic flights.  Extra charges apply.)

Note: Any itinerary is subject to change due to the weather conditions, the length of the trip and the group’s majority decision.


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 Horizon III.

Your last dives will be on the second to last day in the morning. Horizon III 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 certain trips which include domestic flights according to their itineraries.  Full info for these trips is available upon request.
