Thank you for your interest in our upcoming trip to the Maldives aboard the "MV Emperor Explorer " Liveaboard! Our trip this time will be a repeat of one of the best itineraries available in this region. We will begin and end our cruise in Male, the capital of the Maldives. We will dive the famous North and South Ari atolls, where we'll be able to sample some incredible marine life in this part of the Indian Ocean, including whale sharks, manta rays, sharks, tuna and numerous exotic marine creatures. Besides the marine life, water temperatures range between 82-85 degrees with crystal clear visibility and reasonably calm seas!
Located just 300 miles south of Sri Lanka, the Maldives are well known for their incredibly beautiful islands, housing many upscale vacation resorts. The Maldives are also well know for their lack of any land mass much higher than the ocean's high water mark, thus making them the first country to sink below the ocean's surface as global warming continues and the oceans of the world rise!
