- About Us
Bas, founder of our company can organize a custom safari for you with MV Haira. He is one of the leading safari experts in the Maldives with 12 years Maldives safari experience and more than 6000 dives on safaris. Bas mainly organizes longer safaris to be able to sail out of sync with all other safari boats who mainly organize 1 week trips. This means you will have most divesites for yourself. It also gives more freedom in finding whale sharks or doing some more manta- or shark dives, whatever clients prefer. The last couple of years the manta night dives have become very popular just as a night dive with hundreds of nurse sharks.
MV Haira is a 28 metre safariboat accommodating 14 guests complementing them with seven spacious cabins. All cabins are with attached modern toilets with shower and hot water. It is spacious with a lounge, a bar and a large sun deck. MV Haira also has a living space on the second deck for entertainment. Haira has 6 crew including the skipper and chef and a dhoni crew of 3. The captain and crew are all very experienced and experts in safaris in the Maldives. MV Haira has been refurbished in 2016. All cabins have an en-suite bath room with hot and cold water and shower and toilet.
Bas offers 3 dives per day except the first and last diving day (each 1 dive). This means in a 10 day safari you will do 26 dives.
MV Haira sails in the high season in the months January to April.
The owner of MV Haira normally organizes surf trips, if you want to come dive with us with a group contact us in advance so we can charter the boat for you on time. To give you an idea of the price, for a full charter (14pax), 3 dives a day, meals, transfers, coffee tea and snacks included (excluded tip for the crew, beverages from the bar) for 2019 is about 1900eur per person.
Note: this is high season ! For the same amount of money you spend on a 7 day (17 dives) safari with other operators, you dive 26 dives and you can determine the start and end dates.
This safari starts with a pickup from the airport, Haira will be anchored close to or in the lagune on the inside of the airport.
