Carpe Diem

The Carpe Diem is the first boat the company started operating in 2008 and the reason for the start of the company Carpe Diem Maldives Pvt. Ltd. The Carpe Diem was built in the Maldives fully out of wood by Amir Mansoor who is also the owner of the boat. The boat has 10 cabins divided over 3 decks and can cater for a maximum of 20 people. The boat is accompanied by a diving dhoni (tender) and a small speedboat (dingy). The Carpe Diem caters for scuba diving trips, surfing trips, fishing trips or tailor made cruises for exclusive groups.

Our local dive team of 3 with their abundance of experience can cater for any experience level diver and is able to ensure that everyone of any nationality has a lasting wonderful diving experience. On dedicated scuba diving trips the Carpe Diem offers standard 3 dives a day.

What makes the Carpe Diem further stand out is the service provided by a dedicated crew, some of which have been with the company for a many years. Clients that have come back described it as “coming home”.
