Recreational Diving with MV Legends

Not just a tech boat for deeper dives…

Your safari on MV Legends will give you the chance to have a relaxed week, diving some of the most famous locations in the world as well as some lesser dived hidden gems.

Many operators run their safaris like a ‘pony trek’. A well trodden route of dive sites, with little flexibility on the itinerary and timings of dives. Cramming in 4 dives per day with a night dive, makes for early starts and short dive durations to have any chance of sensible surface intervals.

By planning to do 3 dives per day with a few selected night dive location (not just where you happen to have parked every night) you can extend your dives to be more relaxed and take the time to really explore the mighty Thistlegorm or get that perfect Nudibrach photo
