M/Y Blue Voyager
Originally sailing as a blue o two fleet vessel in the Red Sea, M/Y blue Voyager was fully refurbished in 2017 ready for her move to the Maldives. M/Y blue Voyager is a 37 metre, steel hulled vessel that boasts three spacious double and ten twin cabins. She features a separate outdoor dining area, bar and sky lounge, as well as a luxurious Jacuzzi. M/Y blue Voyager benefits from a separate tender and diving dhoni which allows for the best use of space on the liveaboard to explore the pearls of the Indian Ocean in comfort. The vessel is also equipped with a nitrox membrane, booster pump and camera station. Itinerary Highlights…
Fushi Kandu – Laamu Atoll One of the most popular channel dives; although relatively shallow, it stretches for 250m and white tip reef sharks are frequent visitors. So too are schools of jacks, as they surge in among tuna and eagle rays.
Olhugiri Kandu – Thaa Atoll Schooling fish and jacks attract large numbers of white tip reef sharks. Tuna and eagle rays wait for the leftovers and the occasional large Napolean wrasse can be seen nibbling on corals.
Maluku Kandu – Meemu Atoll The north east is peppered with submerged pinnacles covered predominantly in soft corals, whilst the west will see you surrounded by jacks and snappers. Keep an eye open for sharks and rays at 30m!
Guraidhoo Kandu – South Male Since the eastern side of the channel is open ocean, large predatory fish can regularly be spotted here. This site is famous for sightings of sharks, schools of eagle rays and the occasional sail fish and hammerheads. The best condition to do the dive is when the current is flowing into the atoll. The dive begins on the outer reef following the current into the atoll. Most of the pelagic species can be observed on the eastern side, where the reef drops off into the deep ocean. At the end of the dive in the channel, along the reef you can find overhangs with plenty of soft coral growth and small fish.
Kandooma Thila – South Male Atoll Located in a channel, the reef is subject to strong currents at times. The ocean currents carry a lot of nutrients to the reef, supporting an abundance of sea life. The site is well renowned for the soft coral growth, turtles, diverse fish life and invertebrates found on the reef. At the reef slope you may find sharks and eagle rays.
