Vessel Layout

The beautiful wooden hulled Theia has much to give to it’s guests. Indeed, the privately owned dive vessel offers a customizable and luxurious experience. The Theia can be compared to the MY Manta Cruise as they are both 32 meters in length and 9 meters in beam. The accommodations and communal spaces on both vessel are much alike, with the Theia having a smaller number of guest for the same space. Plus, the Theia as a more traditional feel with warm interior decoration, inviting divers to relax and enjoy.

One Liveaboard feedback for “MV Theia”

  1. Hi!
    I joined a group of friends for my diving trip to the Maldives and I was on the Theia Liveaboard. First of all, booking with was easy and straightforward. Now, the week spent discovering the best dive spots of Ari atolls was simply amazing! We had a cabin on the lower deck and it was just perfect. I guess it more roomy than you would expect on a boat but mostly, it’s cozy! We slept well! We also ate very well. It was nice that the crew asked preferences or dislikes as for the meal prep. It was always good and diverse enough.

    The Maldives are beautiful and it was nice to be in living this trip in luxury. The theia is comfortable, the atmosphere is casual I would say but the service is definitely top class. We felt privileged to be there! I and we, with my friend dont usually visit the same place two times but the Maldives may be an exception! :)ç

    Happy bubbles on the Theia!
