The Carpe Novo is a luxury 43-meter yacht and is a sister ship to the Carpe Vita and Carpe Diem. Cruising the atolls of the Maldives, the ship accommodates 22 divers in 12 luxury cabins. The air-conditioned cabins feature flat screen TVs and entertainment centers, storage cabinets, and ensuite bathrooms. There is indoor lounge area on the main deck that has a flat screen TV, entertainment center, and library. Forward of the lounge is a shaded seating area. On the upper deck is the al-fresco dining area and fully stocked bar. The ship features three cabin types; four junior suites, two single suites, and 6 standard cabins. The junior suites offer king size beds that can be separated into two large single beds.
The Carpe Novo offers year-round dive charters to some of the best dive sites in the Maldives. The local dive masters will show divers everything from mantas, sharks and whale sharks to tiny shrimps, nudibranchs, and ghost pipe fishes. Dive itineraries include Kudarah Thila, Manta Point, Maaya Thila, Fish Head, and Machafushi wreck to name a few.
All diving from the ship takes place from the 18-meter Dhoni ensuring maximum space for gear storage on the ship. The Carpe Novo offers free nitrox to EAN-certified divers but does not support technical diving or rebreathers.

Dive Conditions

The conditions are generally good all the year around Maldives. Air temperature is 26°C to 32°C year-round. The average water temperature ranges from 27°C to 30°C year-round. Divers can expect visibility from 15m to 40m depending on the season and location. The visibility is not as good during the rainy season, May to August. Currents depend a lot on tide and location, and ranges from none in the lagoon to very strong in the channels. Dive depths range from 5m to 40m. The coral reefs are shallow and most of the dive sites are between 10 and 20 meters deep.
Due to the medium to strong currents, drift dives are common. Often divers have to do a negative entry, which means the moment you enter the water, you must descend to the bottom. The Maldives is recommended for the intermediate level or experienced diver. Because of the depths and currents, dives in the Maldives are usually 45 - 50 minutes for many divers. There are many dives sites which are suitable for novice divers as well which are protected from the currents, and novice divers can do drift dives on the long reefs not affected by tricky currents.
