The SY Maldives Siren is a 34m liveaboard constructed from ironwood and teak in the Indonesian Phinisi style. You can step aboard for 10 night diving charters around the Maldives with various routes in the north, central and southern sections of the archipelago.
Up to 16 scuba divers are accommodated in comfort in this beautifully furnished and maintained gaff-rigged sailing vessel. There is a large wood-panelled saloon on the main deck. Here you can relax in the air-conditioned environment, sit on the soft furnishings reading from the library, enjoy a free beer, or make use of the onboard masseuse.
There are networked computers in every cabin, plus DVDs and music to enjoy in privacy. The en-suite cabins are also are sleek and stylish in design and you may be tempted to spend more time in your cabin than use it simply for sleeping. There is also a handy free laundry service onboard these tours.
There is also a large sun deck where you can soak up the sun's rays and watch the ever-changing Maldivian island scenery. In addition to being a well appointed and comfortable liveaboard, the Maldives Siren is also a very practical boat for divers and photographers. DIN adaptors and nitrox are free of charge, there are 12 and 15 litre tanks available, and there are designated areas for charging and preparing your underwater camera and video equipment.
Practicality and style combine to make the SY Maldives Siren a top choice for Maldives liveaboard dive charters.
