Description

The luxurious Amba is the only liveaboard serving the Northern Maldives, offering advanced divers’ access to unspoilt, lively reefs and thilas (underwater mountains) across the area.

Secret dive spots mostly discovered by Amba’s crew over the years will show you a very large variety of species, so macro and big fish photographers will be happy.

The colourful Northern Maldives represent amazing diving spots, tranquillity and memorable impressions away from typical locations. The Amba is the only safari boat diving since 2004 in Haa Alifu Atoll and Haa Dhaalu Atoll, in the far north of the Maldives, about 280 km from Male’ and reachable in only 35 minutes by propeller plane.

The ship cruises mainly in Haa Alifu and Haa Dhaalu Atoll, but also regularly offers special tours to Baa and Raa Atoll as well as some tours from/to Male. There is the popular Manta and whale shark point “Hanifaru” which can be found on itineraries in September to December. In addition to the fixed arrival day Sunday, on request, an individual daily arrival by arrangement and surcharge is possible. The 7 nights turns are from Sunday to Sunday. Every year we also offer a few 10/11 nights special tours and 14 nights with 2 different tours (see tour schedule). Reefs with manta rays and reef sharks, but also stingrays, guitar rays, Leopard sharks and a variety of otherwise typical for Indonesia “critters” invite you to unforgettable dives. Not only the underwater photographers appreciate colourful fields of soft corals in the north of the Maldives, even more as the last El Nino destroyed a part of the hard corals in the Maldives.
