The Maldives Islands lie Southwest of India. Scattered across the equator in the middle of the Indian Ocean, the gem-like islands of the Maldives depict the rare vision of a tropical paradise. Palm fringed islands with sparkling white beaches, turquoise lagoons, clear warm waters and coral reefs teeming with abundant varieties of marine flora and fauna, fascinates visitors as it has for thousands of years.
 
There are three distinctly different types of diving: inside the atolls, outside the atolls and inside the channels or passes, which is where the currents are strongest and you'll find the greatest congregation of fish life. Most intriguing are the cleaning stations, found around every corner and under every ledge. Groupers, Snappers, Surgeonfish, Eels, Parrotfish, even Giant Napoleon Wrasse park casually in corners, oblivious to all, (including cameras) while armies of wrasse, shrimp and other assorted cleaners pick at debris in their open gills and cavernous mouths.
 
The big attraction, however, are the schools of fish that patrol the reefs in colorful packs: Humpback and Black and White Snappers, Trevally Jacks, Barracuda, Batfish, Unicornfish, Yellowback Fusiliers and Harlequin Sweetlips almost comical in design. The reef's larger inhabitants, including sharks, rays and occasionally even Whale Sharks, are often seen cruising in the blue.

Sibonné Beach Hotel - Providenciales, Turks & Caicos - Dive Package Special

posted by Liquid Diving Adventures    |   April 7, 2013 14:36

The Eastern Caribbean islands offer some of the world's most famous beaches, resorts, diving and pirate hangouts. The Turks and Caicos are no exception. We have a great package at the Sibonne Beach Hotel on Grace Bay.

Sibonné was the first hotel built on Grace Bay Beach – so it enjoys the best position on the most famous beach in the Caribbean. Renovated and renamed  – this is the most intimate hotel on Grace Bay Beach. With only 28 rooms, guests enjoy the distinction of being closer to the beach than anyone staying at the more recent large-scale resort developments on Grace Bay.

Add to this – the glorious view from our restaurant, Bay Bistro – where you look directly at the beach and the aqua-blue waters of Grace Bay. Bay Bistro is one of the few restaurants on Grace Bay that offers fine dining with a beach front location and full ocean view from their dining room.

As soon as you step onto your balcony, dine in the oceanfront restaurant, walk onto the powdery white sand, or swim in the amazingly clear turquoise water of Grace Bay Beach – you’ll understand why Sibonné Beach Hotel is the best choice for your Caribbean vacation in the Turks & Caicos Islands. Add to this, fantastic dive sites and an amazing accommodation and dive package with the Ocean Vibes dive team.

Our 7 night package with accommodations and 5 dive days is $1,381 per person double occupancy European Plan (no meals). Dive services provided by Ocean Vibes.

 

Nai'a Liveaboard - Fiji's Finest Dive Charters

posted by Liquid Diving Adventures    |   February 20, 2013 12:07

From manta rays to mantis shrimp, dolphins to dartfish, or voracious sharks to vibrant soft corals, NAI'A has found Fiji's ultimate dive sites. Experience the diversity and drama of pristine coral reefs at their most colorful and lavish.

We are excited to offer the Nai'a liveaboard with dive charters to Central Fiji. Central Fiji has the best diving, no doubt about it. This "NAI'A Triangle" of Lomaiviti, Bligh Water and Namena is the focus of the regular itineraries, covering about 500 nautical miles. NAI'A has journeyed throughout Fiji, in all directions and to every corner of the country's boundaries -- and beyond. Beautiful sites and dramatic attractions are found in every region and new places yet to be explored. But the central region has proved the most consistent in the quality and health of terrains, animals and conditions. Lomaiviti's coral reefs and islands are Fiji's most dynamic and varied: voracious sharks to vibrant soft corals.

Fiji's coral reef system is a complex web of barrier reefs surrounding large lagoons and islands. Coral growth and fish action are most robust on those outer barrier reefs. Marine life is especially concentrated within the reef passages and channels that link the lagoons with the deep ocean. But the barrier reefs are remote and vast - a long way from shore bases - so only the best-equipped live-aboard diving vessels can access these locations. Much of the area remains uncharted and the dive sites untouched. All this makes NAI'A dive sites in the NAI'A Triangle of Lomaiviti, Namena and Bligh Water largely exclusive. You are extremely unlikely to encounter another dive boat during a NAI'A trip -- it will feel like your own private pristine Fiji.

The normal itinerary for both seven and ten-day charters starts and ends in Lautoka, just north of Nadi, where the international airport is located. After an initial "checkout" dive on the afternoon of boarding, NAI'A heads north and east around the flank of the main island of Viti Levu to reach Bligh Water. Several different divesites in Bligh Water are available including Vatu-i-ra, E6, Mt. Mutiny, and Cat's Meow, depending on localized weather conditions. From there we choose our sites according to weather, tides, and our passengers' inclinations. But generally we visit the islands and barrier reefs of Namena, Wakaya, and Gau. On ten-day charters there is more time available to dive the various reefs in the Koro Sea, some of them near Namena and others near nowhere!

We have limited availability for 2013 charters, better space availability in 2014, and many open charters in 2015. Pricing for the 2013 and 2014 7 day cruises start at $3440 pp inc tax and 10 day cruises start at $4914 inc tax. Contact us for charter details today...!
