With first-class service from a crew of 12, guests on Adventurer 2 can expect resort-style living. Each room sleeps 2 people, either in double beds or two singles and all have capacity for a third bed, if required. Accommodation on the Adventurer 2 is on an all-inclusive basis. Guests enjoy three meals each day plus an afternoon snack, all prepared on the boat by an excellent chef, whose specialties are Asian and Mediterranean food. All coffee, water and non-alcoholic beverages are also included. There is an onboard bar serving alcoholic drinks, including wine, imported spirits and beer, at very fair prices (a beer costs around US$4.) Drinks and meals can be enjoyed either on the deck or inside in the living room.
During a stay on the Adventurer 2, the aim is to visit the finest dive sites in the Maldives. Seasonal changes mean that the best sites vary with the time of the year, so our routes are always different. The Adventurer 2 crew is extremely familiar with all Maldivian dive sites and their aim is to ensure guests enjoy the liveaboard diving experience. Maps and briefings are provided for all dives. Scuba divers aboard the Adventurer 2 enjoy 3 dives each day, all led by PADI Instructors and experienced divemasters with all the equipment necessary for a safe and professional dive. For those wishing to learn to scuba for the first time, PADI certification courses (Open Water and Advanced) can be held on board but must be booked in advance. Divers can either bring their own equipment or rent from the safari boat, but again, this should be arranged in advance.
All dives are taken from the 60 foot Dhoni, a separate dive boat that travels with the Adventurer 2. Equipment is also kept on board the Dhoni, making time aboard the Adventurer 2 more comfortable, since guests don’t have to move their equipment from one boat to another. The Dhoni is also equipped with all the emergency supplies necessary.
