How does the daily dive trips by boat gets scheduled?

We’re always trying to schedule the daily dive trips as individual as possible and to consider
our guests wishes and needs.
We usually do 1 or 2 dives in the morning and 1 dive in the afternoon. Always short term scheduled from one day to the other and in consideration of the weather conditions and currents.
Full day trips, Night dives and Early morning dives will be planned individually and on request.


When do we get the private Dhoni – how will it be organised?

All guests on Safari Island have the opportunity to use the Dhoni for one day, if they stay on the island for 7 nights.
For a stay of 14 nights on the island guests can use the Dhoni for two days – after prior confirmation also for overnight.
This is an absolutely interesting and unique offer. The Dhoni boat can be pre-booked at the reception directly after your arrival, because it is an offer of the island.
If you would like to go diving on such a trip you will need to let us know when the safari trip is supposed to take place and we can arrange a private guide to show you some of the best dive sites of the whole Ari Atoll.


How can we book the luxury Dhoni for the private safari?

After your arrival on the island you can inquire at the reception about possible dates for the tour.
You then come to us in the dive centre so we can reconcile the date with our schedule.


How does it works with those private dive safaris and what are the costs?

You can book a private guide specifically for your 2 day safari trip. The guide will accompany you on your tour and show you the finest dive sites in the region. For this exclusive and highly individual service a charge of
155,- U$ per day will be charged. The dives itself done during that trip will be calculated according to our price list. Throughout the 2-day Safari a min. number of 5 dives (max. 6) will be scheduled (a minimum number of 2 Diver is required), to give you the chance to benefit the potential of the trip and to show you the most spectacular dive sites in the Ari Atoll. So you’ll even have a good chance to dive or snorkel with Whale sharks.


How does it work with the “free dives”?

According to our price list every 7th dive is free of charge. This automatically equals a discount of up to 14%.


Will course dives be counted on that discount regulation??

Yes. The AOWD course for example consists of 5 dives. When you join us for 9 additional dives afterwards
(total 14 dives) you automatically will enjoy 2 of your dives free of charge. If you go for a total of 21 dives per person
- 3 dives will be free of charge.


How do we pay…?

You can settle your bill nicely and easy at the end of your stay at the resort reception.
They accept Visa,- and Master card as well as cash.


Should we book dives in advance – are there any discounts for early bookings?

Since every diver gets a discount of up to 14% directly on spot, pre booking discounts are not necessary.
Therewith all of our customer have the chance to enjoy the benefit out of that generous regulation.
