The 104-foot (32-meter) luxury Theia was launched in 2010. She offers 9 large cabins, normally accommodating 18 divers, but she can take up to 20 guests for charter groups.
A word from Dom: "A long history of happy, repeat divers who give us excellent reviews. I've worked with Theia for years and have never had a disappointment. Moderately priced with a nice variety of itineraries including central, northern and southern atolls. A good choice." ... Dominick Macan

DRAMATIC DECOR, SUPER SPACIOUSNESS
Lots of liveaboards claim to be spacious .... but sometimes that term is used a bit loosely. The Theia has been well-designed to ensure maximum space for her guests. The main deck hosts an immense indoor lounge with ample seating, graced by a panoramic view and a bar. You'll find a full entertainment system here. On the sun deck you'll find the 'Sky Bar' where you can relax with drink in hand before or after dinner. Meals are served in the outdoor dining area where you'll enjoy views of the spectacular islands during your meals. You'll find a delightful mix of international cuisine.
The super-sized cabins offer a cozy ambiance where guests can enjoy relaxing hours. The superior deluxe room is nestled in the bow of the boat giving it a distinct flavor, while the sea view suites are situated on the top deck.
The dive dhoni is well equipped for divers & photographers ... and like the mother-ship has plenty of space for you and your equipment.
LAYOUT & SPECS
Theia offers Central Atoll trips, Northern Atoll & Southern Atoll trips. 7-day trips are generally classic central atolls trips while 11-day & 14-day trips generally venture to the northern and southern atolls.
The final itinerary is, of course, always dependant upon weather, sea conditions and where the best animal sightings are at any particular time of year
