Family dive vacation

Thinking of a dive trip in the Maldives in December. We are a family of 4 and the majority of places I have glanced at are a max 3. Where should we stay for the best access to diving? The max I would like to spend per night is $350.00.

Is that per person or for all 4? How about a live aboard?

Done a live aboard in Australia. I was thinking max $350 per room. I was not including meals for that amount.

your kids are going to be charged as adults .. so you are looking at 2 rooms . a few resorts have family rooms that might sleep 4 .

for best diving , you want to be in the ari atoll . of course you'll have to add the seaplane transfer into your budget for that . have a look at vilamendhoo

Thank you. I'm hoping to find a family room. I will have to adjust my lodging budget I guess.

Seems unbelievable value.

Sorry for the confusion. I was just saying we have done a live aboard out of Cairns and I was looking at a hotel this time for around $350 for just the room. The live aboard broke down to roughly 325 a day pp.
