Learn To Dive On A Luxury Cruise With Carpe Diem Maldives
Introducing the scuba diving experience to all travellers, in 2018 Carpe Diem Maldives will offer beginner divers the ultimate dream holiday. For one week in July and a week in August, a 7-day cruise on Carpe Vita will be dedicated to 20 adventurous travellers looking to obtain their PADI Open Water Diver certification. Starting in Malé and ending in Baa Atoll, guests will experience the beauty of coral reefs and a myriad of fish starting from just three metres beneath the surface. The cruise will begin with dives in shallow and calm lagoons and once the fundamentals are firmly mastered, novice divers will have the chance to dive 20 metres below the surface. Each of these special trips will also include a snorkelling visit to the region’s annual manta ray migration in Hanifaru Bay, Baa Atoll, a UNESCO protected marine biosphere area.
