Discover the true beauty of the Maldives with a week’s Cruise around the many tropical islands enjoying the amazing dive sites of the Indian Ocean and the delights that welcome you aboard this luxurious liveaboard.
Launched in April 2008, Dream Catcher II offers the dream safari that will ensure you travel in comfort and ease to your many destinations throughout this marvellous country. There are many island resorts that can offer you all that you need, but Dream Catcher II brings this to you in a truly relaxed and comfortable atmosphere.
Dream Catcher II provides fantastic accommodation, top class diving, delicious food and dedicated services, all with a spectacular sea view. The cabins are spacious and made from the finest teak interiors and offer the latest facilities such as TV, DVD and music systems.
Divers visit the Maldives for the marine life as well as for the rapid drifts that dominate the area. The islands are some distance from land, which means there is an abundance of marine life. Life on the reefs is prolific, but always keep an eye out into the blue, away from the reef into the thermoclines below you - you never know what action you may drift past!
