End of an Era: Blue O Two merge with Master Liveaboards

The popular UK based liveaboard operator and dive travel agent is finally set to close it’s doors – once and for all

Scuba diving enthusiasts who have cruised the Red Sea and Maldives with Blue O Two will now set sail under the Master Liveaboards banner. The full integration of Blue O Two into Master Liveaboards marks the end of an era for the once-independent operator.

Blue O Two, known for its exceptional liveaboard experiences, unfortunately faced financial difficulties following the global COVID-19 pandemic. The company entered administration in November 2022. However, Scuba Tours Worldwide Limited acquired the brand name, allowing Blue O Two to keep operating for a short while.

Blue O Two merge with thriving sister company

Master Liveaboards, a well-established player in the liveaboard diving industry and sister company to the struggling UK arm of the business, stepped in to take over Blue O Two’s vessel operations in November 2023. This move has expanded the already successful Master Liveaboards’ fleet with the addition of the Red Sea vessels, Blue Horizon and Blue Melody, and the Maldivian liveaboard, Blue Voyager.

The official handover was recently announced on social media, with the Blue O Two Facebook page transforming into “Master Liveaboards – BO2.” This signifies a new chapter for Blue O Two’s loyal customer base.

To welcome these seasoned divers and loyal Blur O Two customers into the Master Liveaboards family, they’ve unveiled a special incentive program.

Anyone who previously dived with Blue O Two will receive double loyalty points on their first booking with Master Liveaboards within the next year. Additionally, those who booked directly with Blue O Two will get a US$100 voucher to use on their Master Liveaboards adventure.

The Blue O Two merge offers exciting possibilities for divers seeking exceptional liveaboard experiences. Master Liveaboards’ established reputation combined with the iconic Blue O Two vessels in the Red Sea and Maldives creates a strong contender in the liveaboard diving market.
