MY Sheena is operated by the experienced outfit Werner Lau, so you can expect efficiency and high levels of service when you're liveaboard diving throughout the Maldives atoll chain on this boat. A maximum of only 14 divers on this 24 metre motor yacht means a high level of intimacy and, with 10 crew members, almost 1-on-1 service levels.

Refurbished in 2009, Sheena has 7 cabins, both Owners cabins and Lower deck cabins, all with air-conditioning and en-suite bathrooms. Diving is done from a dhoni ensuring space and tranquility on the mothership. Meals are mostly enjoyed in the outdoor dining area and the air-conditioned lounge is well equipped with entertainment facilities.

This liveaboard runs out of Medhufushi Resort so it is always well stocked with fresh food and a ready supply of resources and dive equipment. Unlike many other Maldives liveaboards, it does not have to return to Male every week, and is therefore free to dive the more distant southern atolls such as Meemu, Laamu and Thaa. Other routes including Ari Atoll are available upon request. Getting to Medhufushi allows you to experience a beautiful seaplane journey from Male Town with stunning views over the Maldives.

Sheena is a nitrox-only boat. For EANx-certified divers nitrox is free, otherwise it is compulsory to do the nitrox course on board.
