Ocean Divine

Ocean Diving Ext1 opt

The popular Ocean Divine has offers 110 feet (33.5 meters) of luxury to 16 lucky divers in 8 cabins. Known for her excellent crew & top-notch service, she's a Maldives prize..

 A word from Dom :  "David & Gaelle built this luxury yacht with the desire to entertain guests as they would in their own private home .... and they succeeded admirably. They're returned to land for a period of time, leaving Ocean Divine in good hands. In my opinion, this is one of the ultimate liveaboard experiences in the Maldives.  If your budget permits, she's worth adding to your bucket list.."..... Dominick Macan

    TRAVEL & CRUISE LOGISTICS


    Most of the trips begin and end in Male and the closest airport is Male Intl (MLE). After clearing customs and immigration you will be met by a representative of Ocean Divine and transferred from the airport to the boat. It takes about 15 minutes to reach the boat in the port.  For early arrivals, you may want to take the courtesy bus to the Hulule Hotel to relax.  This will involve a small charge at the hotel which is not included in the cruise but you can shower, eat and use the pool.

    At the end of your cruise, Ocean Divine will return to Male in the afternoon the day before disembarkation which will take place at 8am after breakfast. You will be transferred to Male airport and, again, you may want to spend a few hours at the hotel while waiting for your flight.

    This schedule is altered for Deep South trips which include a domestic flight one way.  Full info for these trips is available upon request.
