February 13 - 26, 2007   ♦   from $4925 per diver
including airfare from USA on Singapore Airlines

Join Island Dreams' Ken Knezick on an ultimate scuba diving adventure...

The Maldives are one of the last remaining quality dive destinations for adventurous travelers from the USA. The diving is a broad mix of reefs and walls, anchor diving and drift diving, even some fine shipwreck diving, all the while surrounded by a wonderfully large poplulation of pelagic fish life. On this trip, you will see everything from colorful clown fish in anemones beside soft coral-laden ledges, to turtles, sharks, manta rays, and even huge whale sharks.

For a detailed description of the Maldives experience see Ken Knezick's Maldives Dive Report.

Island Dreams' Maldives adventure makes use of the brand new Peter Hughes Ocean Dancer, clearly the very finest live-aboard sailing these waters. You will be accompanied by expert guide and divemaster Ken Knezick, making his own fifth excursion to the Maldive Archipelago. Our trip features airfare from the USA on Singapore Airlines, day room in the Singapore Airport, ten (10) full nights aboard M/V Ocean Dancer, and a Maldives airport day room before we head home.

SOLD OUT: Sorry, but this group is now sold out. Call or email to be first on the Waiting List. Of course, we can still arrange an individual Maldives dive vacation to your specifications.
