MV Blue Spirit is an intimate Maldives liveaboard taking a maximum of only 12 divers around some of the finest dive sites the island chain has to offer. Unlike some others that focus one area, Blue Spirit’s liveaboard safaris take in various locations: central, northern, southern and far south atolls. Choose from week-long central cruises to 20 night expeditions that cover them all.

This 26m wooden-hulled vessel has a large air-conditioned saloon and dining area on the main deck. This is where most of the indoor socializing takes place with an audio-visual entertainment system, and a library of book and magazines to browse through. Dining may take place here or, alternatively, in the shaded outdoor area at the bow of the main deck.

Blue Spirit is a small-but-perfectly formed Maldives liveaboard with accommodation for up to 12 guests in a range of double/twin bed cabins all on the lower deck. All cabins are air-conditioned and feature ensuite bathrooms. The sundeck is the place to unwind in the open air, either working on your tan or relaxing in the shade. Here you can drink in the ever-changing scenery of turquoise lagoons and tiny tropical islands.

Diving is conducted from the accompanying dive dhoni where tanks remain in place for refilling. Photographers will appreciate the separate camera rinse tanks plus the many charging points in the saloon. Unusually for the Maldives, this liveaboard is rebreather friendly! M/V Blue Spirit is a great option for groups to charter and for those who like a more intimate experience and plenty of personal attention from the crew and cruise leader.
