A Heritage of Visionary Thinking

From a small beginning as one of the pioneers of the liveaboard industry we have expanded our business interest to multiple industries in Maldives.

Formed as a family business in 1997, Canopus took its first steps in the tourism industry of the Maldives with two liveaboards, Dhinasha and Orca. Over the years we have diversified our activities to Real Estate Developments, Destination Management Company (through Akquasun Canopus Maldives), Trading business (through Surpass Canopus Maldives), Guesthouse Development & Operations (through Canopus Retreats), and Dive & Water Sports Services (through Sea Retreats). We look for quality investment opportunities which provide above-market returns while helping limit risk over the long term. We welcome investors who are committed, consistent and disciplined to talk with us with their business proposals. Our success has always been based on the exceptional quality of our partners and our team.
