At EcoPro Divers they strongly believe in the concept of merging liveaboard diving with the principles of marine conservation.
They have implemented several measures in their operations that are geared towards this goal.
One of their initiatives involves using drinking water that is generated through an osmosis and mineralizing system and they also provide refillable drinking water bottles, biodegradable shampoo and shower gel, reusable bamboo straws amongst other eco-friendly practices.

EcoPro Divers Maldives has been actively involved in marine conservation for many years, and they are dedicated to imparting some of this knowledge to their divers through their detailed briefings.
Moreover, their guests have the opportunity to interact with employees of prominent organizations such as the Maldives Whaleshark Research Programme and Manta Trust, who often join the tours and offer insightful presentations on the subject of conservation.

Arrival and departure questions and answers..

What is the ideal check in time ? - 12pm

What is the earliest check in time ? - 9am, the earliest transfer to the boats is around 12pm noon

What is the latest check in time ? - 4pm is the last scheduled transfer but for an extra charge later transfers can be arranged outside of these times at approximately $15 per person

Where are you met on the day of boarding ? - You will be met by an Eco Pro Divers staff member in front of the arrival exit, after baggage claim, at the international airport, easily recognizable by a sign reading "Eco Pro Divers" and boat name.

Is there a check out dive on the boarding day or it is the following morning ? - On the day of arrival and departure there is no diving

What time does diving end on the day before check out ? - On the day before departure there will be one dive in the morning enabling you to fly the next day.

What time is check out on the last day ? - 7-8am

If you would like to arrive the day before it is possible to stay in the airport hotel which is on the adjacent island (HulhulMale) as the airport (Hulhule island) or stay in another guesthouse on Hulhulemale Island for the night, we don’t recommend booking somewhere in Male as this involves a ferry ride to the next island.
If you stay on Hulhulemale island your hotel will then deliver you back to the airport the following day (the day of departure) where you will be met by the boats representatives and taken directly to the ship.
Please check with your hotel / guest house if this is a free transfer as some of them charge for this service. Planes do not fly late into the night so you will be able to sleep.

We recommend that you check your travel insurance will cover anything interrupting your travel plans as well as offer great dive insurance
We recommend Dive Assure Insurance as it offers cover for all these eventualities as well as complete Dive Insurance all in one package.
