The True Maldives is active in the Maldives for almost 20 years organising adventurous dive safaris (liveaboards) for serious divers. We specialise in dive safaris with large marine animals.
To give you an idea about our safaris, below a movie shot during our trips in months October 2013 to March 2014.
To be able to offer you the best we dive in relative small groups of maximum 14 guest and we mainly organize longer trips (longer than 1 week) to be able to sail out of sync with all the other safariboats thus maximizing your dive experience.
We always have a European safarileader and a Maldivian diveguide on the boat to combine the best of both worlds. Don't expect a jacuzi or spa on our safari, with us it is about making the best possible dives.
