The best formula for discovering the underwater marvels of the archipelago of the Maldives remains undeniably on a cruise, during which time you will be able to make between 15 and 25 dives, depending on the chosen itinerary. The diving itinerary and program of Abyss World’s “classic” cruises is established based on the desires of the divers themselves, their previous dive experiences in the Maldives and of course weather conditions. Therefore, we will travel and dive at the Atolls of North Malé, South Malé, Felidhu, Meemu, Vattaru, Baa and among other marvels of the Indian Ocean.
Two special cruises offer magnificent options and the absolute best of the Maldives - Grand South & Grand North. Explore virgin dive sites at the 2 extremes of the archipelago. Discover exclusive itineraries, using an ascending or descending formula.
