As Maldives consists of a number of tiny islands scattered over a large area, the best way to do marvel at this marine haven is by liveaboard. Here the currents of the ocean are what gently carry you along the waters enabling you to observe a variety of fish such as the barracudas, Napoleon wrasse and sweet lips in almost every side where the water flows.
Explore the Maldives’ channels if you want to encounter caves, caverns and overhangs where one can observe beautiful soft corals as they proliferate and an array of gorgeous colourful sponges, gorgonian fans and plenty of invertebrates.
There are also interesting cleaning stations where one can observe symbiosis underwater as larger marine species are serviced by the cleaning wrasses and shrimps. Away from the reef is where the larger, more thrilling species roam.
If the big fish is what you are craving to see, the Ari Atoll is a must-dive site. Known for its reliability, some of the most exciting varieties of large fish have been spotted here including the hammerheads, whale sharks, manta rays, eagle rays and so much more giving you plenty of excitement wherever you look. With the bright light streaming and illuminating the ocean, this happens to be an ideal spot for some excellent underwater photography.
Scuba diving in the Maldives is available all year round, but plan your holiday between November and June as some of the finest underwater species can be viewed during this time. The best choice of accommodation while holidaying in this region are Maldives island resorts, as most them provide necessary facilities for scuba diving making it all the more convenient.
