Set around the Equator, the Maldives is an archipelago of over 1000 islands with 26 distinct atolls of beautiful low lying coral islands. This is a stunning destination with picture postcard sandy beaches on palm fringed islands surrounded by crystal clear waters.
These islands of astonishing beauty offer some of the best diving and snorkelling in the world - the crystal clear water and shallow lagoons are perfect for snorkelling, while the reef walls teem with sea life for more experienced divers. The Maldives have an amazing diversity of sea life, with corals and over 2000 species of fish, ranging from reef fish and reef sharks to moray eels, rays and whale sharks.
A 7 or 14 night island hopping cruise makes the most of the stunning environment above and below the waterline, the relaxed daily life on board ship invites all to languish in the leisurely and unhurried pace of life, to soak up the sun and enjoy breath-taking beauty with the finest creature comforts always at hand.
Cruises are on board the 4* Yasawa Princess, a comfortable ship which has been recently refurbished, and offers excellent value for money. There are just 33 spacious cabins spread over 3 decks and each has air-conditioning and en suite facilities. Snorkelling lessons are also conducted by the crew for a chance to view some of the most beautiful coral reefs up close.
