The MY Island Safari I can accommodate up to 20 divers in 9 cabins, consisting of 8 Deluxe cabins and 1 Suite. These Maldives liveaboard cruises follow no strict route but take you to the places where conditions are ideal for you to see the best diving in the Maldives at the time of your trip.

Each tour includes visits to islands and resorts as well as a beach BBQ, entertainment evenings and night fishing, and so are not strictly only 'Dive, Eat, Sleep' experiences. Non divers and those seeking a break from the underwater world can also try their hand sailing, windsurfing, or just enjoy the in-house entertainment.

All the rooms are air-conditioned, with a fridge and cabin to cabin telephones, and also feature quality fixtures and fittings and hot and cold en-suite bathroom facilities.

The liveaboard yacht's facilities include air conditioned saloon and bar with TV, DVD and music system, as well as traditional board games. You can dine indoors or out in the covered dining area, cooled by the sea-breeze.

Sun-lovers will enjoy the choice of sundecks, complete with sunchairs and matresses - 1 with tea and coffee making facilities, and the second being a larger sundeck on the upper deck for hardcore sunbathers seeking a little more privacy.
