M/V Ark Royale Pictures and Layout

M/V Ark Royale

Ark Royal dives the best of Maldives sites, with variations given the time of the year. Our tours are mainly of 9 days / 9 nights of duration routing S Male, Felidhu, famed S and N Ari, and N Male atolls, up to 4 dives daily. For those who prefer longer charters, two consecutive tours can be combined to accommodate, and we can adjust for special date requests subject to calendar/availability.  The tours are designed for best Manta and whale shark sightings, and the famed rich fish-life, year-round. While we do not guarantee the sightings of the big pelagics, the chance of encountering them is very high indeed, with our experienced crew. All dates are prime diving, variables are in visibility primarily ranging an amazing 75-150+ ft visibility, reliably!

Ark Royal is a 115-feet luxury cruiser traversing the crystalline waters of the Maldives. The cruiser accommodates 7 Deluxe Cabins, 1 Junior Suite, and 1 Suite. The living quarters are complemented by a restaurant able to offer you indoor dining, a fully-stocked drinks bar, a tastefully-decorated lounge, and an extensive library, including video and music collections, should you wish to recline and lose yourself in a book or more.

All living quarters are equipped with the latest technologies offering you the amenities of a TV, DVD and CD player, a private bar, an electronic safe and telephones. Remain in touch with the rest of the world with our on-board Wi-Fi system.

The spacious sundeck is perfect for watching the sun go down, with drink in hand, thanks to the outdoor bar service. When the sun does go down, and the stars come out, what better than to gaze upon their beauty with our telescope on deck. Don’t forget, however, to engage our on-board Steam Bath and masseuse, for some relaxing therapy from time to time.

We also offer a special tour covering the southernmost atolls of Maldives, Huvadhoo and Addu. These remote atolls, little visited by tourists, offer colorful coral reefs. The channels abound with sharks. We recommend tours of minimum 10 Nights duration for these far flung atolls, and our special 11 night Norther Tour is extremely popular for repeat divers to Maldives.
