Maldives, renowned for its rare and abundant marine life, is home to Manthiri, our luxurious live-aboard. Manthiri’s spacious cabins, beckoning decks and quality equipment are all rigorously well-maintained, but that’s only half of our commitment to excellence. Our other constant goal is service and an endless quest for perfection.
The gracious standard of Manthiri is evident the moment you step off the plane in Maldives. Our representative will greet you at Malé International Airport and accompany you to the transfer vessel we’ve arranged to breeze you to Manthiri.
Manthiri, our beautiful 85-foot (25.9-meter) liveaboard is powerfully built of fine tropical timber and custom-designed for dive cruises. The vessel's wide beam of 25 feet (7.6 meters) contributes toward a stable hull, and allows room for spacious cabins. No more than twelve guests are invited on each cruise and our attentive eleven-person crew ensures that every need is met.
Our separate, specially outfitted dive tender, called a dhoni, provides a home for compressors, Nitrox systems and dive gear, creating the equivalent of a 106-foot (32.3-metre) liveaboard on the main vessel — one with just six cabins and its own gracious dive deck. With the dhoni, that’s how spacious Manthiri feels.
Fastidiously maintained and in operation for twenty years with a superb crew, Manthiri is widely acknowledged as one of the finest liveaboards in the world. Don't just take our word for it. For an independent assessment, refer to the guest comments, UNDERCURRENT and Rodale's Trip Reports.
