Theia Liveaboard Cruise Update
Theia set sail again on Monday, March 15 for another stunning cruise of the Maldives. Weather forecasts for the week were good with an average temperature of 31C, but a few thunderstorms and light winds expected.
Divers will enjoy two or three dives each day. So far, they have enjoyed some awesome dives, including a dive at Boduhithi Thila in the North Male Atoll, where they saw a variety of sharks and some stingrays.
The next dive was at Rasdhoo Madivaru in the Rasdhoo Atoll, where they saw three manta rays, white tip, black tip and grey reef sharks and enjoyed excellent visibility. Several dives were held at the Rasdhoo Madivaru since it is such a spectacular dive site, and during a morning dive at the site, the group was lucky enough to see a group of hammerhead sharks and ten mobular rays.
After the Rasdhoo Madivaru, Theia moved on to Bathala Maaga Kan Thila where divers were treated to an amazing grey reef shark show!
Theia is definitely one of the most spectacular boats in the Maldives today. These photos show some of her characteristics and amenities.
Theia, like all liveaboards in the Maldives, is accompanied by an additional dive boat, known as a dive dhoni, from where all the dives are carried out. All equipment is stored on this boat, making the guest experience on board even more comfortable since there is no need to carry dive gear from the main ship on to a secondary boat. The dive dhoni also carries first aid and emergency equipment in case something should go wrong during the dive. The compressor is also kept on the dhoni, so there is never any noise from the compressor on the main boat.
