One of the great advantages to liveaboard diving is that it lets you get away to some of the most remote location on the planet – dive sites that simply can’t be reached with daily boats from shore, places where there’s only you, the reef, the fish and – hopefully – none of those other pesky divers!
Our friends at blue o two can offer exactly that: world-class liveaboard diving holidays in places that not so many other people can get to. The boats are large and luxurious, comfortable and practical – you’ve got your own dedicated dive station for the week, top-notch dive guides, a culinary genius in the galley, and a spacious and comfortable cabin. The motto is simple: eat, sleep, dive, repeat.
THE RED SEA
Blue o two’s Red Sea fleet comprises four vessels, offering up to 4 dives per day in remote locations such as St Johns and the Deep South, or some of the most iconic wrecks like the SS Thistlegorm and the richest reefs in Ras Mohamed in the north – popular dive sites, perhaps, but with a liveaboard you can dive them when there’s nobody else around.
The M/Y Blue Voyager regularly sails down to the deep south of the Maldives, her steel hull making the long journey more comfortable than other vessels. There’s very little traffic here compared to some of the more popular islands in the Maldives, meaning that the marine life has flourished.
Truck (or Chuuk) Lagoon is widely regarded as the wreck diving capital of the world, with 61 wrecks of the Japanese Imperial fleet – including the famous Kobayashi Maru – sunk during WW2. Located in the western Pacific, the small and tranquil lagoon is visited by the M/V Truk Master, one of the most recent additions to the blue o two fleet, steel-hulled for comfort and able to cater to recreational, technical and rebreather divers.
The Galápagos Islands are on every diver’s bucket list, and the best of the islands are only available by liveaboard. The M/V Galapagos Master has been issued with licenses from the Ecuadorian government and the National Institute of the Galápagos, ensuring she’s able to visit some of the most remote and untouched islands in the world while complying with the strict environmental regulations of the national park.
One of the most remote destinations available to divers, and with very few liveaboards plying the area, the M/V French Polynesia Master offers divers of all experience levels the opportunity to visit one of the richest and most unspoiled marine environments in the world, sometimes referred to as 'the Galapagos on steroids'. Humback whales are often spotted amongst the dolphins, rays and sharks – along with a diverse range of brightly coloured tropical reefs and fish life.
