Destinations we offer > Maldives > M.V. Carina

The Carina is a 100-foot luxury live-aboard built in 2000 with the finest of materials. She is co-run by a Maldive/Italian partnership who have 15 years experience in Maldivian liveaboards. This is a big plus in ensuring an enjoyable trip. The diving dhoni is well equipped and maintained and the Maldivian dive guides know the dive sites intermately. Though the tour is primarily diving the Carina actively promotes other aspects of the Maldives. Trips to non resort islands give you an insight into indigenous life and evening BBQ's on deserted islands give you tranquility rarely found these days.

The whole boat gives a feeling of space even with its full compliment. Each stateroom has a wooden finish of the highest quality with ensuite bathrooms, hot water, and individually-controlled air-conditioning units. There are three large decks in addition to ample inside and outside spaces. Her gourmet buffet restaurant offers local and international cuisine.
