Ocean Divine

Ocean Diving Ext1 opt

The popular Ocean Divine has offers 110 feet (33.5 meters) of luxury to 14 lucky divers in 7 cabins. For years, she's had the same owners, same crew & same excellent service.  A prize.

 A word from Dom :  "David & Gaelle built this luxury yacht with the desire to entertain guests as they would in their own private home .... and they have succeeded admirably in their goal.   In my opinion, this is one of the ultimate liveaboard experiences in the Maldives."..... Dominick Macan

Four decks of spacious luxury define this vessel.  The large sun deck level, furnished with contemporary outdoor furniture and bean bags, is partially covered.  More loungers are found on the main deck fore deck and the rear of the upper deck.  While luxuriating in one of these areas, you'll find yourself sipping iced drinks and nibbling on delicious snacks, including freshly baked breads and sweets.

The interior lounge & dining area on the main deck presents a decor of relaxed elegance and warmth.  The salon features all the typical hi-tech audio & video equipment you would expect on a vessel such as Ocean Divine. Alfresco dining is available on the back of this deck.  Meals are plentiful and good. Hot breakfasts are cooked to order, lunch is usually a buffet, while your dinner will be served at your table and can be accompanied by wine, should you wish.

The diving is done from a custom-built, 55 foot dive dhoni, a tender which accompanies the Ocean Divine throughout the trip. This large tender features a very spacious dive deck, sun protection, & easy entry/exit. It has a cruising speed of 12 knots & carries all tanks, compressors, camera tables & other diving amenities, plus Nitrox.

Photographers' & videographers' facilities are excellent and include some video processing services.

TRAVEL & CRUISE LOGISTICS


Most of the trips begin and end in Male and the closest airport is Male Intl (MLE). After clearing customs and immigration you will be met by a representative of Ocean Divine and transferred from the airport to the boat. It takes about 15 minutes to reach the boat in the port.  For early arrivals, you may want to take the courtesy bus to the Hulule Hotel to relax.  This will involve a small charge at the hotel which is not included in the cruise but you can shower, eat and use the pool.

At the end of your cruise, Ocean Divine will return to Male in the afternoon the day before disembarkation which will take place at 8am after breakfast. You will be transferred to Male airport and, again, you may want to spend a few hours at the hotel while waiting for your flight.

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