Carpe Novo.
The Carpe Novo: Spacious, mighty and great for solo travellers.

Carpe Novo has a wide variety of different scuba diving itineraries available. Most trips explore the Central Maldives region around the Male, Ari and Vaavu atolls; this is the most famous part of the country to dive and great for seeing manta rays as well as grey reef, white tip, nurse and whale sharks plus countless pelagic and reef fish. 

Some trips visit more off-the-beaten-track Maldives diving regions – some up to the North which has the best hard and soft coral in the country plus wrecks and mantas – or to the south where dive sites are more challenging due to strong currents but the rewards are countless sharks – threshers, bull, tiger, grey reef, whitetip, blacktip and hammerheads! 

Most trips also include a Beach BBQ evening and the option to rent out Standup Paddleboards. 

There are 12 comfortable cabins; all with a TV/HD player, ensuite bathrooms and ac.  On the main deck are 2 Single Suites with queen beds and ocean views; ideal for solo travellers. The Junior Suites, located on the upper deck, have double or twin beds with ocean views. There’s also 6 Standard Cabins on the lower deck with queen + single or 2 single bed options. 

On the upper deck is the al-fresco dining area; conveniently located right next to the bar! The sundeck has plenty of loungers from which to catch a tan as well as partial shading; this is a great place to relax with a drink and take in the views!

There is an outdoor lounge on the main deck; this leads into the indoor saloon with large TV entertainment system and library plus indoor dining area where guests can look forward to delicious Maldivian and Western food served three times a day as well as plenty of tasty snacks!

Carpe Novo is a great liveaboard to go on; value for money is very good and it is also one of the very few Maldives liveaboards to have Singles Cabins for Solo Travellers.

"Everything was well organised to make a week trip so comfortable and do diving. Delicious meals are always ready when we come back from each dive and staff were all professional and dedicated to what they do. We are so happy that we chose this liveaboard. If we come back, we will definitely look no further".
