A diving holiday in the stunningly beautiful islands of the Maldives will prove to be a truly unforgettable experience with its excellent coral reefs and fantastic marine life.
Why the Maldives?
Apart from boasting of crystal clear waters which affords great visibility, the nutrient-rich waterers are home to rich marine life hidden deep in underwater atoll lagoons and rock pinnacles. There are plenty of Maldives resorts and hotels including the likes of Adaaran Select Meedhupparu with their own in-house water sports centre which interested parties can check out to sign up a dive session.
When to Go
While it is possible to go scuba diving all year round, given the tropical climate of the archipelago, the best time to do so would be during the dry season which extends from the month of April to March / April.
What You Will See
While the reefs are filled with colourful corals, multi-hued nudibranchs and more, the Maldives is the best place to get up close to whale sharks and manta rays. Reef sharks such as grey reefs and white tips can be spotted here as well.
Best Dive Sites
There are plenty of top dive sites in the Maldives which are simply some must-visit attractions such as the Fotteyo Kandu, Vaavu Atoll, a highly- rated dive site host to abundant marine life. A few other popular dive sites are Kuredu Express, Lhaviyani Atoll and Okabe Thila in North Male Atoll.
