The MV Leo Maldives Liveaboard

This dedicated diving vessel stretches a generous 35m and provides accommodation for 20 divers across 10 en-suite cabins.

Dive Facilities

All scuba diving is carried out from a separate 14m diving dhoni, on which you will store your dive equipment for the duration of your dive safari.

Tanks are filled at their station so once you have set up your equipment once, there is no need to worry about a thing.

As well as 30 x scuba cylinders, the dhoni also carries medical kits, oxygen kits and has 2 compressors on board.

Nitrox is FREE and there is also support for rebreather diving (supporting Poseidon MKVI, AP vision and Megaladon manual units).

Every diver is required to be carry a Surface Marker Buoy (SMB) on each dive and you must also wear a dive computer.

I really enjoyed my 7 night trip to the Maldives in December.

Having a designed diving dhoni made all the difference as diving was a simple affair with everyone having enough space to kit up and store their scuba gear.

The dive guides gave very informative briefings and made each diver feel at ease before entering the water each time, which I really appreciated as I hadn’t been diving for quite some time. It was wonderful to see the large marine life such as whale sharks and manta rays.

Everything about the Leo Liveaboard experience was fantastic and I couldn’t fault a single thing.

The crew members were very dedicated to providing exceptional service and the diving team was very professional and knowledgeable.

The food followed a wide variation and there was always plenty to spare. The boat itself is quite luxurious for a liveaboard and it was especially nice to relax in the common areas in the time between diving.

Overall it is an experience I would highly recommend, especially as we got to dive with so many large creatures – whale sharks, mantas and nurse sharks, sometimes all in one day… simply fantastic!
