Expansive atolls, endless dive options, bountiful marine life, and we have the best of it all!


  • 6 days of amazing diving and living on a luxury boat
  • The chance for manta rays, hammerheads, and so much life!
  • Experienced guides and cruise director to assist with every need
  • Endless views across the sea

You’ve dreamed about diving Maldives, and here’s your chance! A magical destination filled with underwater amazement and endless vistas across the sea. Dive with manta rays gliding by in the morning, see the grey reef sharks patrolling the reef in the afternoon, and watch the sun setting across an endless sea in the evening. Eight days of pristine reefs, occasional currents, megafauna and macro life…all from the luxury of a spacious live aboard!

Wildfire Expeditions has partnered with Emperor Liveaboard to offer you the best diving around Maldives in an amazing package. Join the MV Atoll with a maximum of 12 guests, a smaller number than most other boats, for a more personal experience. Your 8-day itinerary is arranged so the dives are uncrowded and pleasant. Spend your down time lounging on the sun deck, watching a film on the 38” home theatre system, or having a swim!

The dive sites are accessed directly from the LOB or by dive tender. Dives are led by experienced guides, with a maximum of 5 divers to each guide for maximum safety and enjoyment. Fantastic and varied meals keep you energized for the 17-18 dives over 8 days.

Choose from two amazing themes for your Maldives experience. Pelagic Magic begins in Male and covers areas of North and South Ari Atolls to find Manta Rays at multiple sites, Grey Reef Sharks patrolling the pinnacles, Maya Thila coming to life at night, and chances to snorkel with Whale Sharks! Best of Maldives takes you to the most famous dive sites in Maldives, with a variety of shark and manta dives as well as reef dives with the abundant fish and macro life, including a night dive with Nurse Sharks!
