Ocean Divine runs a unique route – it spends an entire week exploring just Ari atoll, which is considered by many to offer the best diving within the entire Maldives.
Comprised of 105 islands, Ari atoll is a great location for shipwrecks, drift dives and coral coated underwater pinnacles, where one can spot many reef sharks, manta rays and even hammerhead sharks (hammerheads at Rasdhoo atoll, which is part of Ari).
Whilst Ari atoll is commonly featured in the central Maldives routes of other liveaboards, it is usually explored for just one or two days.
By spending an entire week diving at Ari, one can truly discover the immense scope of dive sites here, including those that are more rarely visited or even newly discovered.
The owners of Oceans Divine have over 30 years experience in the Maldives and are onboard to ensure your diving holiday is a special one! On some nights they use diagrams to give detailed talks about marine life.
One of the staff is an an experienced masseuse, another is a high level chef and a third is an insanely upbeat bartender who makes a mean cocktail! The dive guides are knowledgable and also highly experienced.
The max group size of Ocean Divine is twelve – this is the smallest group size of any liveaboard, making it a great option for those seeking a more personal experience.
In total, there is a crew of ten ensuring an almost 1:1 crew to guest ratio.
In the afternoons, guests can enjoy icy drinks on the outdoor lounge or sundeck as they take in the stunning sunset views, whilst listening to their favourite music.
There’s also a spacious indoor lounge and bar area, with beautiful interior decor and plenty of great views.
In the evenings, take a DVD to your cabin or the living room, play some games or simply unwind and watch the stars from the front or upper decks.
Additional activities include stand-up paddelboarding, beach visits, BBQ’s, free diving and snorkelling.
Ocean divine is the best option for fully discovering the legendary Ari Atoll! It’s also ideal for anyone seeking to escape the crowds and have a more intimate trip!
“Saw everything that I wanted (and was promised) to see!!! Mantas, (whale) sharks, turtles, zillions of colorful fishes/corals and sooo much more, all this in warm cristal clear water!
Our divemasters, Xanat and Pablo, were really cool and fun to dive with, with a perfect knowledge of the dive spots! Every dive was a WOW one!! – only that they always disappeared during water fights :-)) I need to add that the dive crew was just so nice and helpful. What fantastic way diving in these conditions!
The Ocean Divine was more then a fantastic way to cruise these islands! A big big thank to the cook (great cuisine!!) and the whole crew, always attentive to your needs with such a smile!! Another WOW for them too 🙂 Wishing all the best of luck and a great future to Gaelle, David and the very bubbly Dune *
