Carpe Diem

Carpe Novo

The Carpe Novo is our newest 2016 boat and started operations March 26, 2016. The Carpe Novo is another upgraded sistership of the Carpe Diem and has been built in the Maldives by the same person, Amir Mansoor who built the Carpe Diem and the Carpe Vita. The Carpe Novo is bigger than the Carpe Diem and even slightly bigger than the Carpe Vita, catering for a maximum of 22 people in 12 cabins divided over 3 decks thus providing more space. The Carpe Novo like her two “sisters” caters for dedicated scuba diving, wave surfing and fishing trips for both individuals as well as groups.

The Carpe Novo like the Carpe Diem and The Carpe Vita provides 3 dives per day as standard.

Captain Shareef of the Carpe Novo Maldives
"Captain Shareef has been with the company from the start (2008). First on the Carpe Diem and after a short period of absence joined the Carpe Novo. Captain Shareef has been navigating the waters of the Maldives since he was 17 years old and knows every dive and surf spot like the back of his hand. Your safety is in very good hands with him. "
"Our Sri Lankan Chef Cook “Iresh” is a well experienced chef, started out on the Diem and after a short leave of absence back with us on the Novo. He knows how to make those buffets special, extra tasty and of high standard. He is assisted by a local chef to add some local flavor to the menu. The menu covers a wide range of different international cuisines blended together for you to enjoy. With prior notice, special dietary requests can be catered for as well as any special occasion packages like birthday celebrations, anniversaries to name a few."
Chef cook
"Head of your dive team on the Carpe Novo is local Dive instructor “Ali”. He has been been with Carpe Diem Maldives for a few years starting out as a divemaster on the Carpe Vita and since 2021 became instructor and has logged an extensive amount of dives throughout Maldives. He is a firm believer that the live-aboard experience is the best option for a diving holiday in the Maldives. He uses his experience; considering the weather and migration patterns of aquatic species and under water visibility, to tailor diving programs that are sure to yield sightings of the most exotic and rare species. He is assisted by local dive guides Iyaan and Teygo. With this abundance of experience, knowledge of the local dive sites and conditions your safety and comfort will be guaranteed. Their challenge will be to make your dive experience with the Carpe Novo truly memorable!"
