The monsoon season in the Maldives presents one of the best times of the year to dive amongst manta rays feeding off the plankton. Numerous travel accolades pronounce the destination as one of the best diving destinations in the world, and the summer months are when manta rays and whale sharks are just a few of the megafauna and pelagic ecosystem that appear in larger numbers.

Carpe Vita is the second vessel in the fleet of three luxury liveaboards under Carpe Diem Cruises. After her annual maintenance and makeover in June this year, guest divers on Carpe Vita can enjoy lighter wooden interiors and refreshed colours in line with her two sister vessels Carpe Diem and Carpe Novo. To celebrate the new look, as well as the summer months of active marine life, the Carpe Vita Super Summer Sale offers 10% savings and complimentary nitrox on 4 dives a day. The 7-day cruises from July to end of September also include three meals per day and begin from $2,088 per person.

Agnes van Linden, Assistant Managing Director for Carpe Diem Maldives, says, “The Maldives is home to some flourishing coral reefs despite recent bleaching events. There are wall dives and deep blue dives teaming with abundant marine life to feast your eyes on. Our team of experienced Maldivian dive masters draw on their local knowledge and connections across the atolls to take our guests on dive sites that are easily accessible and varied, providing experiences for every level of Scuba Diver. From its awe-inspiring wreck dives to its impressive walls, Manta Ray cleaning stations, Napoleon Wrasse and numerous renowned dive sites, The Maldives dive destination has so much to offer. At Carpe Diem, we believe great experiences shouldn’t cost the earth, so our Super Summer Sale is just another reason to enjoy our diving adventures.”

With 10 cabins, each cruise can cater for a maximum of 20 passengers, who can also enjoy the time onboard snorkelling, paddle boarding or surfing if not diving. Other unique cruises planned for Carpe Vita include marine expeditions under the Dive with a Purpose programme, as well as the first week in July when 20 complete novice divers can have the experience of a lifetime obtaining their PADI Open Water certification while enjoying The Maldives destination. Travellers are advised that the Super Summer Sale 10% discount does not apply to other offers on Carpe Diem Cruises.
