M/Y Moonima is a recent addition to the budget Maldives liveaboard diving scene. This wooden motor yacht of Maldivian construction of 30 meters has a cruising speed of 9 knots. This means you can have easy access on dive safari holidays to some of the best atolls of the Maldives. Moonima was completely renovated and relaunched in 2015 and is now under new European management.

Moonima operates in and out of the port of Male and runs liveaboard diving cruises mostly around the central atolls but some trips venture a little further south or a little further north. All 8 of the spacious cabins onboard the Moonima have ensuite bathrooms as well as offering individual air conditioned comfort to the guests.

Further facilities onboard this liveaboard include 3 spacious sundecks for topping up your tan, a bar, dining area, and a saloon with DVD/TV entertainment. Enjoy free internet access on the Wi-Fi router for your devices. Divers will appreciate the 12 and 15 litre tanks, fresh water showers and camera rinse tank on the accompanying dive dhoni. Your equipment and the compressors, with nitrox available, are kept on the dhoni, making the diving system on this Maldives liveaboard simple and keeping noise to a minimum. MY Moonima is not a deluxe option but as a budget but comfortable liveaboard, it is a great value-for-money holiday choice.
