If you are looking for a scuba diving holiday in the Maldives, look no further. The best way to experience Maldives’ under water scuba diving paradise is to join one of the luxurious liveaboard the CarpeDiem. You will be cruising in style, pampered by friendly crew, while scuba diving 3 to 4 times a day, guided by some of the most experienced Maldivian dive guides.

During the 7 or 10 night liveaboard cruises throughout the year, they will do their utmost best to show you a little bit of everything the Maldives has to offer. From the big “stuff” like whale sharks, manta rays, sharks to the small nudibranches, shrimps, ghost pipe fishes and much much more. Come and ‘ Seize the Day’ – Carpe Diem – with us and book your liveaboard holiday.
