For Your Comfort - Dedicated to excellence in diving and superior service, Manthiri's crew of 12 pride themselves on looking after your every need from the moment you arrive at Male International Airport, until your departure for home or a land-based resort option. Outfitted with a spacious salon with comfortable couches and a roomy dining area, life aboard Manthiri is relaxed and accommodating. Two chefs provide three delicious meals daily, plus snacks after every dive. When not underwater, guests can relax in the air-conditioned cabins, in the comfortable salon, on the large sun deck, or rest in the pleasant open air shaded area.
Diving Dhoni, the Vasantha - Diving is done from an accompanying dhoni, the Vasantha, a 54' dive boat fitted with air and Nitrox compressors, oxygen, and safety equipment. This 45-ton displacement vessel is designed to provide a stable and comfortable diving platform. The large 300 square foot covered dive deck is conveniently laid out with tank racks, two hot water showers, and a camera rinse tank. For your diving comfort, a modern toilet is also provided onboard. Dive gear remains on the Vasantha for the duration of your cruise and is carefully maintained by the dive crew. Typical of Maldives live-aboard diving, the diving dhoni feature ensures greater comfort, ease of diving, and best of all, no compressor noise for guests aboard Manthiri.
The Maldives Await You - Each tour begins in Male, the capitol, and covers approximately 250 miles, visiting two, three or more atolls depending on duration of the cruise. Cruising is done during daylight hours with the Manthiri passing by palm-fringed islands and pristine turquoise lagoons. At sunset, your mobile dive hotel anchors in calm waters near a deserted island or perhaps a small village island where guests have the opportunity to experience local arts and crafts, music, dancing and the local way of life. Maldivians are hospitable people and take pride in sharing their world. They, along with Manthiri and Island Dreams, invite you to come and experience the Maldives for yourself.
For your consideration, we offer additional Maldives information and photographs:
