North Cruise


Steep walls covered in soft corals, gorgonian fan corals and sponges. It is a real firework of colours for photographers of all kinds. In September and October, the meeting with graceful manta rays comes accompanied by dozens of the infamous whale sharks who enjoy the plankton brought by the current. Not to mention the “common” grey-reef sharks, leopards, nurses, white-tip and hammerhead sharks.

Deep North Cruise


Embark on the boat to discover exclusive and wild dives in the atolls of Haa Alifu, Haa Dhaalu, Shaviyani, Noonu and Raa. The full team of « Amis des Maldives » will welcome you on the island of Hanimadoo after a domestic flight from Male Airport lasting about one hour. During this cruise, the main attraction will be to discover enchanting “thilas”, colourful overhangs, schools of oversized fish swimming in harmony among these wonderful sites and great underwater architectures. You will certainly have an encounter with nurse sharks, leopard sharks or guitar rays, not to mention the two stars of the Maldives: mantas and whale sharks.

Center Cruise



​A route from Malé, with an itinerary offering you a complete overview of the different dive sites the Maldives has to offer: thilas, oceanic walls, coral reefs, just to mention a few. The journey is optimized according to the current and possible encounters: head north during the months of November, December and May, towards the South from January to April, looking for sharks, eagle rays, whale sharks and of course the majestic manta rays swimming by the dozen.

South Cruise



More than 600 kilometers of sea in the south of Maldives atolls, getting wilder and remoter the further south we go... Drop your luggage on the boat and let yourself be guided by dolphins through 7-8 atolls along the eastern side of the islands and across the equator. Enjoy the wealth of unspoilt table corals (Acropora), the genuine curiosity of grey reef sharks, meeting with a squadron of eagle rays or heading into a wall of hammerhead sharks. You will discover our most secret dive sites to increase your chances to meet with manta rays or whale sharks that can come and feed at the stern of the boat while we are enjoying a drink or dinner.

Deep South Cruise


The extreme South of Maldives is still uninhabited and unspoiled, through Seenu Atoll, Foamulah, Gaafu Dhaalu and Alifu. Take your seat at the bottom of the channel and enjoy the shows of hunting tunas, swordfish, grey reef sharks, jack fish or a squadron of eagle rays. And why not a rare encounter with a thresher shark, an amazing encounter with an entire wall of hammerhead sharks, or watching a dozen mantas being cleaned.
