Visit the Manthiri website and click on COVID-19 in the upper right hand corner for our standard operating proceedures, goverment guidelines, and health assessment form. We will work hard to help keep our vessel virus free!
Five Manthiri crew members have tested positive for the Covid-19 and currently they have been taken to a quarantine facility. The boat is also in quarantine for two weeks. Then they will get retested with negative results before the boat can resume operation. Covid-19 has hit the Maldives hard. I am trying to raise money for the crew so they can keep feeding their families during these hard times. If you have been on the boat before, then you know this is an amazing crew and deserves our support. I am putting out a Maldives challenge. Since my friends mean so much to me, MASS Diving will match this campaign up to $10,000. I really appreciate all the support I have been getting for my Maldives boat family. Since the boat is in quarantine, no charters can operate. The crew of the Manthiri's primary income is tips. With no government support this puts a strong financial burden on our amazing team. Your generosity is greatly appreciated. Click on the GoFundMe logo to our donation page.

Current Travel Requirements for the Maldives
- The Maldives government changed the COVID test to 96 hours prior so this should make it easier to get the test back on time. Here is a link
- You must print out your PCR COVID Test and bring with you. The rapid test is not accepted. I would recommend making a couple of copies.
- The Traveler Health Declaration (THD) must be filled in and submitted by all visitors twice – 24 hours before your flight to the Maldives and once more before you depart from the Maldives. You may submit the form electronically via http://imuga.immigration.gov.mv . You will need to upload a picture and your negative COVID Test. You can go online now to check it out so you are familiar with it. Note on return you wlll have to go to the same website and fill out the returning section. You will need a head and shoulder shot for this so bring one to the Maldives with you and the link.
- I will be sending you a voucher from the Manthiri that states the date of arrival and where you are staying. You need this or they will not let you on the plane.
- Here is a link to the trip information sheet. Remember cash for tipping must be newer bills, clean not written on or torn. Boat takes Mastercard and Visa.
- I would be at the airport at least 3 hours before your departure. Lines will be slower due to all the COVID stuff to process.
- Here is the link to the boat application and medical form. Please fill this out ahead of time and bring it to the boat so check in goes a lot faster.
- The USA government is now requiring a negative COVID-19 test returning to the USA. The Manthiri will set the test up for you towards the end of our trip. Fee will be at customers expense.
- Biden is now requiring anyone traveling back to the USA must quarantine at home for 7 days and get another Covid test 3-5 days once home. Even if you test negative, you must still stay home for 7 days.
