MV Soleil II dive boat review

Once operated by Dune Maldives, the 44 meters Soleil 2 liveaboard is now in the hands of Blue K Safari. Indeed, the MV Soleil II has been launched in 2015 and cruises to some of the best dive sites of the Maldives.

Diving with Soleil 2

Diving takes place from a dedicated diving Dhoni which tracks the main vessel’s movements and ensures you’re dropped in the optimum location for the dive.

There are DIN adaptors for those with their own regulators. Nitrox is available to extend your bottom time. Plus, if you’re a relatively new diver and want to further your diving knowledge you can take the opportunity to do your Advanced or Nitrox training onboard.

Diving in the Maldives means discovering a world of brightly colored reef fish such as sweet-lips, snappers and more. Also, giant moray eels, turtles, and shrimps make the coral bommies their homes. Plus, if you’re hoping for an encounter with larger pelagic animals such as sharks, manta or eagle ray or, sometimes, a giant of the ocean such as the Whale Shark – the Maldives’ reefs may serve up that opportunity.

Price starts at 1,630$US – 8 days / 7 nights – Ari & Vaavu trip
