DIVE THE BEST ATOLLS IN THE MALDIVES WITH AMBA LIVEABOARDS!
The AMBA has been a comfort class diving safari ship for more than 15 years with a lot of individual charm and a very experienced and friendly crew.
THE SPACIOUS YACHT
The large and well-maintained yacht can accommodate a maximum of 20 guests, mainly from Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
The ship is 34 meters long and 10 meters wide. With a width of 10 meters and the carefully built-in stabilizers, the AMBA is a very safe and quiet ship. There are a total of 4 floor levels, but for safety the ship is more wide than it is built high.
The motors and generators are very quiet and at night you will hear next to nothing but the sound of the sea. Even the cabins on the lower deck, which are close to the generators, are very quiet at night.

T-shirts and shorts or skirts are sufficient. It can sometimes rain, so we recommend taking a thin jacket with you. Our crew is very modern and has been used to dealing with tourists for 15 years. So you don't have to make sure that pants are long enough or that the shoulders are covered.
There is no dress rule on board. However, it is desirable that shorts and outerwear be worn at mealtime. We strongly advise against taking too much laundry on board. It's hot in the Maldives. Experienced Maldives travelers have 2 shorts and 2 T-shirts as well as pretzels, chocolate and German coffee for the instructor in their luggage;)
