Maldives Liveaboards: Regaldive’s Hot Property



The Maldives is fast becoming the ‘go-to’ destination for divers travelling beyond the Red Sea.

The Maldives has been attracting divers to its waters for decades, and it’s easy to see why: reefs rich in marine life, home to large numbers of whalesharks, dolphins and several species of sharks and regular interactions with manta rays. The Maldives also offers divers some of the best drift diving in the world.

UK-based tour operator Regaldive has recently noticed a surge in enquiries for Maldives liveaboards. They attribute this to a number of factors, including an increase in the number of liveaboards operating in the region, the variety of exciting itineraries, the great value of Maldives holidays and the choice of airlines flying to this iconic diving destination.

Add to this special offers and group discounts and you have the ideal time for divers to book a Maldives liveaboard holiday with Regaldive.

An incredible range of world-class dive sites in the Maldives have been charted and explored close to the capital, Male. A number of liveaboards offer classic itineraries in this region, including MV Ari Queen, with prices starting from £1,025pp (boat only) and Emperor Voyager, with prices from £1,044pp (boat only). Many divers choose to book on a classic itinerary, especially those new to diving in the region.

If you are a seasoned traveller to this diving hotspot looking for your next challenge, Regaldive has several exciting itineraries off the beaten track, covering new atolls in the far north and deep south of the Maldives.

Haa Alifu is the most northerly atoll in the Maldives. MY Amba was one of the first liveaboards to operate around this atoll, and offers some truly original diving. Prices for MY Amba start from £1,160pp (boat only).

MY Sheena visits a number of distant regions in the deep south, including Meemu, Vaavu and Laamu Atolls. The diving would suit those looking to experience rarely dived sites rich in marine life. Prices for MY Sheena start at only £723pp (boat only) on selected sailings.

Whatever your preferences and budget, there is a Maldives liveaboard to sui, whilst the Regaldive Team, with their knowledge and experience of Maldives liveaboards, are ideally placed to help identify the right holiday for you.
