Amba has pioneered diving in the more remote northern atolls of Haa Alifu, Haa Dhaalu, Baa, Raa and Noonu. Here the reefs are devoid of other dive boats. This is dive escapism at it's very best in the Maldives with an experienced crew that know where the best marine life in the region can be found, whatever the season.
Amba sleeps 20 divers across 3 different room types. All of the cabins are a generous size with en suite and air con as standard. There are 7 lower deck cabins, with both twin bed or double bed options. There are a further 2 standard cabins on the upper deck, with a bunk or double bed arrangement. The master suite is also on the upper deck, with a queen double bed and it's own private sundeck, looking out over the glorious blue seas.
Amba prides itself on an exceptional service standard on board. Thanks to her clever design, she is also an incredibly stable liveaboard... you would hardly know you at at sea! Amba boasts not 1 but 2 tender boats. All diving is done from the spacious dhoni, but there is also a fast speedboat to zip you between the islands. Back on board, soak up the sun on the sun deck or curl up with your book in the shaded areas. There are even windbreaker screens for your optimum comfort. Head to the saloon and you will find a fully stocked bar - so pull up a chair at the end of day and trade stories with your fellow divers. There is a TV, stereo, board games and on board library.

Amba is a well run liveaboard offering a great change from the mass tourism of the Central Maldives. Dives are mainly deep thilas and there's some beautiful soft coral. It's the only liveaboard up north so feels like Maldives 20 years ago! Worth the internal flight up but try to take Emirates or Qatar for better connection times at Male. Caroline Wells

I had a great time on Amba, diving on pristine reefs - there was only one dive where we saw other divers. Plenty to see, including mantas and eagle rays. Marco and Nicole are extremely knowledgeable and caring and run the boat very efficiently. The local crew were very helpful on the dive deck and kept the spacious cabins immaculate. The food was excellent and plentiful. The boat was only around half full when I was on it, so peaceful and plenty of room to spread out. The other guests were almost all German speaking, but very friendly. Recommended for divers who want to get off the beaten track and who don't mind some current. Barbara Neville
