EMBOODHOO LAGOON, Maldives -- As part of an initiative to acquaint visitors with the breath-taking underwater lives in the Maldives, Best Dives Pvt Ltd is preparing to introduce a semi-submarine as part of the company's excursion activities at CROSSROARDS.
CROSSROADS, the largest integrated destination in the Maldives, developed by premier property development and investment holding company Singha Estate Public Company Limited, is set to redefine the Maldives' vacation experience and captivate the international family-leisure markets to the Maldives.
The new semi-submarine is intended to provide an introductory experience to visitors who are keen to see the rich underwater lives in the Maldives. The semi-submarine will acquaint hesitant visitors to the joys of experiencing the diverse ecosystem that inhabits the oceans surrounding the islands. Best Dives expects the semi-submarine to be an excellent stepping stone to other water sports such as snorkelling and SCUBA diving.
Best Dives was appointed by Singha Estate to provide a wide-range of water activities and excursions for the CROSSROADS project. This includes SCUBA diving, motorized and non-motorized water sports activities and various excursions that will showcase the natural beauty of the Maldives both above and underwater, as well as the unique Maldivian cultures.

Best Dives staff also undergo regular safety trainings and the company maintains a high number of staff members with Emergency First Responder certification.
"At this point, things are starting to take shape. This submersible submarine is a key addition to the experience that CROSSROADS is offering. Lots of key aspects are starting to come into play to be ready for next year's opening. Seeing partners come together to make this happen is a wonderful feeling," said Thiti Thongbenjamas, Chief Operating Officer of CROSSROADS.
