Welcome to the Amba Homepage!

Diving safaris far from mass tourism

The Amba, the only safari boat in the north of the Maldives offers an unforgettable diving holiday away from mass tourism. In 2016, the Amba was completely renovated and is updated every year during the summer months. The Amba offers a generous amount of space both indoors and outdoors. The upper deck has 4 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. Only the Amba is since 2004 in Haa Alifu Atoll and Haa Dhaalu Atoll, in the far north of the Maldives, about 280 km from Male and reachable in only 35 minutes by the propeller plane. The ship cruises mainly in Haa Alifu and Haa Dhaalu Atoll, but also regularly offers special tours to Baa Atoll. There is the popular Manta and whale shark point "Hanifaru". 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. Especially since the last El Nino destroyed a part of the hard corals in the Maldives, not only the underwater photographers appreciate the big, colorful fields of soft corals in the north of the Maldives even more.

Are you interested?  We look forward to welcoming you soon at the Amba.
