Dream Catcher II offers luxurious liveaboard safari accommodation in 7 suites, fine dining and attentive service, while visiting some of the best dive sites in the Maldives.

Completed in March 2008, this luxury Maldive liveaboard has been designed to ensure that you enjoy life onboard as much as you enjoy the scuba diving below the waves. The saloon has comfortable sofas for relaxing after your dive and an impressive range of entertainment facilities. This includes a large screen TV, DVD player, a Nintendo Wii box and a library section that has a range of Marine ID books. No excuses therefore, for not knowing all about the weird and wonderful fish you encounter on your Maldives diving safari.

For those that must keep in touch there is also complimentary internet, fax and IDD telephone available. The well stocked bar is located on the upper deck and has its own lounge area with sofas as well as bar stools at the bar itself. The talented barman is more than happy to create wonderful cocktails for you, if you are after something more than an ice cold beer after your diving has finished for the day. The bar is located at the rear of the upper deck and so affords you magnificent views of the Maldive atolls as you enjoy your sundowners.

All 3 categories of cabin accommodation on the Dream Catcher liveaboard feature private bathrooms, personal TV and DVD players, and IDD telephones.

The open deck area also allows those looking to top up their tan to do so on the sun loungers provided. The top deck is totally devoted to sun worshippers and there is also a further small sundeck at the front of the vessel.
