Male to Addu on the Carpe Vita
Atolls covered: South Male, South Ari, Vaavu, Meemu, Thaa, Laamu, Huvadhoo, Fuvahmulah and Addu
This unique 11 night trip will be starting from Male and end all the way past the equator in Addu. On this 11 night trip South Ari atoll is added. Guests will require a domestic flight back after the trip from Gan (Addu) to Male airport or from Male to Addu to join the trip. The routing is suitable for experienced divers only due to the currents and number of channel dives involved. The routing is focussed on seeing lots of sharks including possible thresher and tiger sharks, hammerheads, whale sharks and mantas plus the possibility of seeing the rare Mola molas (sunfish). The map below gives a tentative overview of the routing, but will be weather depending. Because of the distance that needs to be covered this trip will only provide 3 dives a day instead of the package of 4 normally offered on the Carpe Vita.

Maldives Far North Expedition on the Explorer Ventures Carpe Vita
December 30, 2015 to January 10, 2016 - $4164 per person
The Carpe Vita meaning “Seize Life” was built in the Maldives by Amir Mansoor and started operations in 2011. The charters cater to a maximum of 20 divers with 10 cabins on 3 decks thus providing more space than her sister ship, the Carpe Diem.
Join us on an 11-night new route and itinerary for the Carpe Vita December 30, 2015 to January 10, 2016. This fantastic liveaboard will take you to some new and seldom visited reefs and as yet unexplored dive sites.
Explorer Ventures has come up with a unique routing that nobody else is doing yet, starting and ending in Male to avoid domestic flights needed. However due to the additional distance covered there will be an increased fuel surcharge. Because of the distance we need to cover, the minimum amount of nights needed to do this trip is 11 nights or more. These will be the first trips conducted by us to the far North and even though a lot of sites are known to us there will be some exciting exploration of new sites during the trip as well. The trip will take the guests away from other boat traffic, meaning you will be the only boat on most of the dive sites the further North we go. The North is characterized by beautiful reef formations and abundance of fish life. The trip will have some great shark life as well as manta cleaning station sites and an exciting site with friendly green turtles. By adding Ari atoll and Vaavu atoll at the end you will still have a chance to see the whale shark and do the famous manta and whale shark night dives but more boat traffic there to be expected. The trip will only be able to offer 3 dives a day. Planned trip route is shown on a map below.
North Male – Lhaviyani – Shaviyani – Haa Dhaalu – Noonu – Raa – Baa – Rasdhoo – Ari – Vaavu – South Male
This package includes: 11 nights lower deck accommodations aboard the vessel; 3 meals daily, plus between-dive snacks; 3 dives daily (except for on day of arrival and day before departure) including one or two night dives; use of tanks, weights and belts; non alcoholic beverages and 2 glasses or beer or wine with dinner; airport transfers on the days of embarkation/disembarkation; GST 12%.
$4164 Per Person plus $400 per person fuel surcharge and $6 per day Government Green Fee
Carpe Vita - Maldives - February 22, 2015
Testimonial from one of our Canadian divers.
"Hi Greg..! I loved the boat, I loved journeying south, I get bored of being hooked in watching sharks milling about. It's OK when there's really an amazing show with incredible visibility but day after day of the same thing, meh. Some of the currents were just too strong for me and I was swept away. Not that I particularly minded because it's kind of fun riding a current that's moving faster than a freight train. Heehee"
"What was personally disappointing to me, is when we got to the latter part of some of the dives we'd end up in some of the most beautiful coral gardens, I've seen. But there wasn't time to truly enjoy them because we'd spent so much time looking at a bunch of sharks whilst our bodies flapped off the ledge like flags in the wind. I'd do it all again in a heartbeat but would set things up to ensure more time at the coral gardens."
"In fact, might return with at least one couple if we can arrange our own dm, so as not to be stuck watching sharks! ;) so that said, what kind of deal can you swing for me on the special trip next December 30?"
