The Ultimate Dive team has personally inspected each and every one of the dive live aboards we offer. We’ve lived on these boats, know the owners, gone on the dives and can offer our guarantee that you’re in good hands. Dive live-aboards are the ONLY way to reach some of the most magnificent dive sites, providing great access to marine life, spectacular schools of fish, and a dive-focused experience like no other.
What to Expect from Your Live-Aboard
Life on a dive live aboards boat revolves around diving. Spending time enjoying the water is the entire purpose of a live-aboard trip. Generally, dive live aboards accommodate between 16-24 people, so you’ll be with a small group.
The length of your dive live aboard vacation can range from a short 3 night sailing to a 3 week excursion. There are dive live aboard options for divers of every ability level; we’ll help you pick the trip that’s right for you! The day generally begins with a dive before breakfast, followed by a dive after breakfast, one or two dives after lunch, and a nighttime dive. You’ll be diving with experts who focus on helping you derive maximum enjoyment from your dives: they know what you’ll be seeing and can help you identify the denizens of deep.
The dive live aboards experience is comfortably casual. There’s no need to “dress”. Most of the time is spent in the water, but if you want to skip a dive, there’s roomy, comfortable lounges to relax with a good book and enjoy your time away. All meals are provided, and plenty of snacks, so you’ll never go hungry! Some itineraries include shore excursions to allow you to enjoy the local culture and add another element to your ultimate dive vacation.
