Liveaboard Holidays - Is a liveaboard holiday for you?

 

The vessels on which these liveaboard trips are made are carefully designed with both your safety and comfort in mind. There is little doubt that these vessels now offer superior living conditions comparable to a luxurious hotel. Many of our boats have state of the art diving facilities such as technical equipment and enhanced compressors. Such luxurious accommodation and modern diving facilities provide an overall enhanced holiday and diving experience in terms of relaxation, comfort, well-being and safety whilst still maintaining a sense of adventure. A diving holiday on a Diving World liveaboard is well worth the time and money.

As a rule you must have acquired a minimum number of dives, currently set to 50 logged dives or more. This is a rule set to safeguard your safety and the safety of others on board. With most dives conducted from zodiacs (ribs, tenders), you will need to be fairly fit to get back on at the end of your dive, even with the assistance of the crew member. On some vessels dives are from the stern platform with dive ladders.

There are also a few other considerations which you must address before considering a liveaboard. It is important to remember that these liveaboard trips stay out at sea for one week or more without returning to land. To embark on a liveaboard you'll have to be prepared to stay out at sea for six nights or more and although most of the liveaboards offer ample space in accommodation and living quarters, you will not have a chance to land on islands or the mainland. It is also important to consider that unless you are part of a group you will interact with other likely minded divers for the duration of your trip.

The overall liveaboard experience has no parellel in terms of dive quality, remoteness and a sense of adventure. Three hot meals are provided per day with snacks in between the diving. Depending on the liveaboard vessel, complementary mineral water, tea, coffee and soft drinks are provided, and alcoholic beverages can be purchased onboard. A corkage fee can be charged on some Liveaboards if you are bringing your own alcoholic drinks.

The crews on our vessels are experienced and ensure you are looked after during your trip. Typically, between 8 to 12 crew members are onboard each vessel. These are cabin and lounge attendants, deck hands, and every crew member is trained for dive cover and assistance. All the Diving World vessels have a minimum of 2 dive guides on board and some vessels provide surface marker buoys.

For an unforgettable and luxurious liveaboard holiday think Diving World liveaboards.

   
 

Maldives Liveaboards (read more by clicking here)

 

kiru dhooniWhile the Maldives certainly have some gorgeous reefs, it's the fish life that makes them an outstanding dive destination. The biggest attraction are the schools of fish that patrol the reefs in colorful packs: Humpback and Black and White Snappers, Trevally Jacks, Barracuda, Batfish, Unicornfish, Yellowback Fusiliers and Harlequin Sweetlips almost comical in design. The reef's larger inhabitants, including sharks, rays and occasionally even Whale Sharks, are often seen cruising in the blue. This parade of awesome marine life combines with exquisite coral covered backdrops to create many of what is surely some of the world's most extraordinary dives.

Diving World offers a whole range of luxury yachts and motor vessels in the Maldives. Trips can be conbined with land-based accommodation and diving or booked
