The 33-meter Ari Queen is a life-cruising aboard scuba diving in Maldives, which takes you to the most famous atolls in the area, such as the north and south of Male, as well as the Ari atolls. The Ari Queen, built in 2009, is fortunate to have a team on board whose experience is older than the dive boat (+/- 15 years!).


The Ari Queen welcomes a maximum of 24 people. The boat has 12 cabins, all with private bathrooms with adjustable air conditioning, storage and hot showers. The six cabins located on the lower floor have 1 double bed and 1 single bed. The main and upper decks each have 2 cabins, luxury rooms or suites. It has windows with sea views, a minibar and a flat-screen TV.


The dive boat was clearly built to be comfortable and conveniently spacious. To relax, on the main deck we have a spacious interior room with comfortable seats, here is also the dining room where 3 delicious meals a day will be served. In the indoor lounge you can take advantage of a complete entertainment system, you will find a large rest area with shade outdoors. There is a bar, tables and chairs, as well as padded loungers available for your comfort. In addition, go up a few stairs and you will find a large terrace from where you can admire the ever changing view and work on your tan. At the top, divers can have a drink while enjoying the sunset in the Maldives. The crew, formed by 15 people, will always be attentive so that we do not miss anything on our unforgettable trip.


The food is carried out in the air-conditioned lounge, with high ceilings and wooden panels that give the sensation of an elegant restaurant with spectacular views of the sea. A mixture of local and international food is served in the form of a buffét. Snacks and drinks are also available throughout the day. One of the highlights of the trip is to dine on a beach on the island, enjoying an immaculate environment while watching the sun set over the bright seascape.


The professional diving team is apparently the pride of the boat. With ample space for the storage of diving equipment and all facilities ready for air and nitrox fillers, the Ari Queen is ready for a great dive. There is a large dhoni to help with the diving operation and to make the descent and collection easier!

The Ari Queen offers incredible diving routes in the Maldives. It is stable, equipped with the latest technologies and security features. The Ari Queen can be compared to the Amba, which was built in 2004, is a bit larger and has the same number of guests. That said, the Ari Queen is a newer ship and a little faster than its counterpart.

Whale sharks, sharks, rays and all kinds of tropical fish await in the clear waters of the Maldives!


Maldives offers crystal clear waters all year round, perfect for wide-angle photography, corals, whale sharks, rays, eagle rays and schools of fish. While reefs and channels provide a great diversity of marine life, the Bay of Hanifaru, although It only allows snorkeling, it is the ideal place for whale sharks, sting rays and giant mantas. We are talking about dozens and dozens of huge mantas that feed, up to 200 mantas at a time. It is also likely that you will encounter whale sharks, opening their huge mouths and swallowing food. Many dive sites have Napoleon fish, barracuda, reef sharks, such as gray reef, white tip and black tip, spotted eagle rays, large marble stingrays, fingerlings and tuna. The current will help to remove more of these larger animals such as hammerhead sharks. If you are in a Manta cleaning station, never chase or carry the manta rays, it will not work. Wait for them to come to you

  • Central Atolls Classical route is our weekly usual route and we do almost all year long from August to January and April and May. This is the best well-known route in Maldives but at the same time the one that offers best and most varied dives. Thanks to that, we know every detail, atoll, passage, thilas and where and when it is convenient to approach every dive zone. It is a 7-night route including 6-dive days on board with embarkation and disembarkation at Male Airport (18 dives with 2 or 3 night dives).
  • The 4 atolls route is the ideal route if it is the first time you visit Maldives. It is the most complete one as it gathers all the diversity we can find in this archipelago, from the big pelagic fish to the wide range of species that dwell in the reefs.
  • The sight of whale sharks and manta rays is almost guaranteed. In Maldives there are two monsoons: the dry one, from November to April, and the wet one, from May to October. In any case, the climate is tropical and the sun is guaranteed in both seasons.
  • The Thilas are great mountains under the sea that we find from a depth of six meters to a maximum of thirty or fourty. The Giris are the same kind of formation but they are closer to the surface, at a depth of only three meters. There are also Farus,  that stand out of the surface of the sea regardless of the tide. The characteristic they have in common is that in all of them we can enjoy carpeted reefs full of life.
  • The last type of dives we will enjoy during life on board are the famous Kandus, “channel” in Maldivian language. It is for many the best dive in the cruise. It takes place in the space between two islands, where the ocean currents slip in the atoll, allowing the entrance of big pelagic fish. Here one can enjoy the near sight of grey sharks, whitetip sharks, carangidae and eagle rays.
  • Some dives will be done amongst the channels that are between the islands and there can be strong currents. We will do some dives to more than 20 meters. So, we recommend to be advanced or be an experienced diver. It is recommended to dive with Nitrox. Diving computer, buoy and torch for night dives are compulsory to carry with you.
  • Desert islands and typical fishermen villages are also visited to discover and enjoy a bit more of the country and if the weather allows doing so we will even dine on a desert beach.
