Vessel Layout

The Ocean Divine can compare to the Maldives Princess in term of luxury and price. The Princess is quite bigger but also allows a lot more divers on-board. On the other hand, the Ocean Divine is perfect for those who want a more personal feel and smaller groups.

3 liveaboard reviews for “MV Ocean Divine”

  1. The boat is spacious & the staff is professional & courteous. The food is delicious.

    The boat is more of a resort that offers diving than a dive liveaboard. 3 dives a day are offers, with a maximum time (including safety stop) of 50 mins. The website advertises small groups, no more than 4. However, in practice this is not accurate. There are two instructors plus owner, however only the two instructors lead dives and all divers go down togetherness masse & stay together throughout the dive. There is an option for those low on air to go up earlier while the remaining divers stay down for 50 minutes. So if you’re an experienced liveaboard diver who likes space underwater & to maximize bottom time, look elsewhere. If you’re a less enthusiastic diver or have a family with you who doesn’t dive, then perhaps a good option for you as there is free diving offers and SUPs. One of our other issues is that tanks were rarely filled at 200, with some of the less experienced divers routinely getting tanks at 180. Nitrox was patchy, however, we weren’t too concerned about this as things can go wrong on a boat. A few things are odd compared to other liveaboards – no standard fish or reef creature ID books & no A/C in the rooms between 7 am – 7 pm. Hot water worked about half the time. While there is plenty of space on the boat to lounge, the option of being in your room during your day is not possible due to the heat. Also, you are asked not to use the outlets for charging in the room, due to fires. There is no camera station either. We calculated with the dives offered (25) and the shorter dives, compared to other 10 day liveaboards you’ll have approximately 400 minutes less bottom time. So in summary, a comfortable boat for lounging around if you want to do some diving, but if you’re a a seasoned liveaboard diver who wants maximum bottom time you should consider other options.

  2. I have been tree times on board of Ocean Divine and it is exceptional good. You arrive as a guest and leave as a friend. The owners Family and the entire crew takes care of you and you can enjoy the very spacious boat. The cabins are comfortable with attached bathroom, with shower and hot water. AC is available during the night. Two enthusiastic chefs create healthy and delicious food and snacks. For fish and seafood lovers, just a paradise. Xanath and Pablo are the dive instructors and they just love to dive and teach. I had during all my trips outstanding dives full of surprises. Ocean divine is suitable for all level of divers and according to experience and interest, the dives and the groups will be organized. Max. 12 divers are on board, however many times the boat has 8 or 10 divers. Scooter dives are possible against additional charge as well as free diver lessons can be arranged with David, the owner. Personally I love this boat and repeating as much as possible. It is just Divine.

  3. Take snacks and a fan and be prepared to stand up for your safety and that of others. This is my 3rd time on this vessel and will be my last.

    It is an old wooden boat that is showing its age with continuously leaking toilets, showers that dont drain, rotting timber, hand rails pulling away from bolts and leaking roofs in cabins.

    There is no air conditioning in the main lounge area. Just 2 stand fans – one that oscillates but the other has been broken for at least 2 years and doesnt oscillate. The air conditioning in the cabins is turned off at 6am and remains off all day. It is turned on again around 6pm. Good luck trying to avoid the heat. Meals are served on the back deck where you miss even the lightest of breezes. The owners had a fan brought out for themselves while the guests sweat it out.

    Meals were good but timings were out of whack. Sometimes breakfast was served at 8am, others 9.30am. Lunch was generally at 1pm and then afternoon tea 5pm. Dinner at 8pm. No food was available during the day between meals. No fruit or biscuits. We spent every afternoon being hungry waiting for the excessively late afternoon tea.

    The owner did not check dive certifications and no paperwork was signed. He was taking groups of uncertified divers diving and then free diving. All with no written theory or exams. It was his verbal instruction and by his own words “He can tell how good a diver is by the shape of his bubbles.” I ceased diving as soon as I became aware that I was leading a dive with at least one of the other 2 divers being uncertified.

    There are a lot of amazing liveaboards in the Maldives but this is certainly not one of them.
