Boat Description

The Amba is a spacious yacht operating in the Northern Atolls of the Maldives. This 33m (108ft) vessel has 11 cabins - 7 on the lower deck with ensuite bathrooms, 2 standard and 2 luxury on the upper deck with a private sundeck. All cabins have air conditioning. There is an indoor lounge area with library, internet, TV and games, as well as an al fresco area to relax between dives. The sundeck is roomy, with sunbeds and a sunbathing lawn. Alongside are the diving dhoni, which houses all dive equipment, and a speedboat. There is also a counter weight system to reduce seasickness. Amba liveaboard enjoys trips in the quiet, Northern Atolls of the Maldives - mostly Haa Dhaalu and Haa Alifu Atoll but with frequent excursions to Raa and Baa Atoll. There are lots of amazing things to see on the dive sites here such as manta rays, napoleon wrasse and guitar, grey reef and leopard sharks. The boat can cater for nitrox and rebreather diving upon request.
