- About Us
Amba is the only safari boat in the north of the Maldives and offers an unforgettable diving holiday away from mass tourism in a family atmosphere. Nicole and Franco, who have been working in the Maldives for more than 25 years, look after their guests on board almost all year long. The two are supported by a perfectly attuned crew who have been working together for many years. In 2016, the Amba was completely renovated and is updated every year during the summer months. Amba offers a generous amount of space both indoors and outdoors. The upper deck has 3 cabins and 7 more spacious cabins are located in the lower deck. You do not want to meet other divers, have a dive site all to yourself? Then you are exactly right with us. The colorful north offers incredibly beautiful dive sites and unforgettable experiences. There is a very large variety of species, so macro and big fish photographer will be happy. Amba has been in Haa Alifu Atoll and Haa Dhaalu Atoll, in the far north of the Maldives since 2004. This is about 280 km from Male and reachable in only 35 minutes by propeller plane. The ship cruises mainly in Haa Alifu and Haa Dhaalu Atoll, but also regularly offers special tours to Baa Atoll. Hanifaru is a popular Manta and whale shark point “Hanifaru” in the West monsoon. In addition, special tours to the Raa Atoll, as well as some “Best of Maldives” tours for the start of the season in September will be held from Male, where no domestic flight is required. Reefs with manta rays and reef sharks, but also stingrays, guitar rays, leopard sharks and a variety of otherwise typical for Indonesia “critters” invite you to unforgettable dives.
Since the last El Nino where most of the hard corals in the Maldives were destroyed , divers and underwater photographers appreciate the big colorful fields of soft corals in the north of the Maldives.
