Carpe Diem Maldives was voted 6th best liveaboard by the readers of UK "DIVE Magazine" hosted Dive Travel Awards 2018.
Although all three liveaboard vessels in the Carpe Diem Pvt Ltd's fleet were shortlisted for the top 25, the operator's first liveaboard Carpe Diem placed highest in 6th place.
This is the second consecutive year that the magazine has recognized Carpe Diem as one of the best liveaboards in the world and it is the only liveaboard operator in the Maldives to have earned the prestigious award.
“When we began our dive safaris with the Carpe Diem vessel in 2008, this sector of tourism was still quite young and undeveloped in this destination. I am delighted that our boats have been acknowledged with this global award for two consecutive years, giving recognition also to the local boat building industry", said the Managing Director of Carpe Diem Maldives Amir Mansoor.
"Carpe Diem, Carpe Vita and Carpe Novo were all designed and built at our shipyard on Innamaadhoo in Raa Atoll", said Mansoor adding that they were made under the specific intent of catering to growing tourist demand within the diving and surfing sector.
