Diverse Travel adds Maldives liveaboard Carpe Diem to portfolio



New to Diverse Travel’s already impressive portfolio of Maldives liveaboards, Carpe Diem is a 35m high-spec liveaboard accommodating 20 guests in 10 ensuite, air- conditioned cabins over three decks.

The boat is escorted by a diving dhoni (tender) and small speedboat making diving even easier for guests, getting to dive sites quickly and flexibly. The local dive team of three has an abundance of experience and cater for any experience although, to get the most from the trip, the Advanced Open Water qualification is recommended. Carpe Diem offers a standard three dives a day. The spacious dive deck has fresh water showers and toilet and Nitrox is available at extra charge.

The main deck features the briefing and lounge area with coffee/tea and drinking water 24 hours a day. It also has a wide flat-screen TV, DVD/MP3 player. Outside is another sitting area in the shade with cushions where guests can have afternoon tea whilst drinking in the vivid colours of the Indian Ocean.

The upper deck has a sofa/reading area, library, the Suite and Deluxe cabins and dive rental equipment room. The main open air dining and bar area is at the back of the boat serving semi-buffet meals. A staircase leads to a 115 sqm sun deck, which is partially shaded.

What makes the Carpe Diem stand out even more is the service provided by the dedicated crew, some of whom have been with the company for many years.

There is a wide choice of seven and ten-day itineraries covering the iconic dive sites that make the Maldives a ‘must dive’ destination.

Prices from £1310 per person based on twin share including 7 night Classical Routing itinerary with full board, 5½ days diving (3 dives per day plus 1 or 2 night dives per week), guide, air, tanks and weights, return transfers to/from boat on day of embarking/disembarking.
