Ocean Sapphire is a purpose-built scuba diving liveaboard designed with comfort and convenience in mind. Focusing on awesome diving trips around Maldives' central and southern atolls this 35m motor yacht accommodates up to 22 guests in 11 roomy ensuite cabins.

One of the main social spots on the boat is the air-conditioned restaurant and saloon on the main deck. When it is time for refreshments, you can enjoy the creations of the 2 on-board chefs and the attention of a waiter. You can relax in the soft, comfortable furnishings of the saloon, enjoying the audio-visual entertainment facilities. Alternatively, you can make a cup of tea and settle down with a good book or dive-related magazine.

There are plenty of other spaces to hang out including an outdoor chill-out area at the stern of the boat, and of course on the enormous semi-shaded sundeck.

3 or 4 diving instructors will be on board to help you enjoy the Maldives to the maximum as you dive from the large accompanying dive dhoni. This is where equipment is kept (with space for up to 30 divers) and so the noisy business of tank-filling happens well out of ear-shot. It also allows guests to make the most of the space on the mothership.

Nitrox, wi-fi internet, an open-air bar and a Jacuzzi on the sundeck are among the facilities that make the European-managed Ocean Sapphire such a gem among Maldives liveaboards.
