Join us aboard the M/Y Blue Voyager. She is a 37m, steel-hulled vessel that boasts three roomy double cabins and ten twin cabins. She features an indoor dining area, a bar, and a sky lounge, as well as a Jacuzzi. A shaded outdoor lounge area can be found on the Mid Deck, plus four different sun decks: a viewing deck located at the front of both the Mid Deck and Upper Deck, an open-air deck on the Top Deck, and an ocean deck at the stern of the boat, all providing comfortable seating and loungers.
No more scrambling in and out of RIB’s/Dinghy’s/Zodiaks!! One of the most outstanding features of M/Y Blue Voyager is the custom-built dhoni (diving support vessel) Blue Shadow. This 19m dhoni is spacious, fast, and equipped with all the modern conveniences that divers want. Each diver has their own station with plenty of space to store their gear and kit up, and the dhoni crew is ready to assist. During the journeys to and from the dive sites, you can ascend the small stairs to the top deck to enjoy the sun and stunning views. There is a toilet with a shower located inside the main deck plus two handheld showers on the back deck, and separate camera and equipment rinse tanks. A fast engine, two generators, and two compressors with a nitrox membrane system mean you will enjoy a first-rate diving experience in the Maldives.
