Maldives

The relaxed atmosphere of the Maldives mean you can give in to the temptations of great diving and good living. Here the emphasis is on enjoying a fast drift dive or watching great manta as they come in to be cleaned. Whalesharks also frequent the area and grey reef shark sightings are common whatever the season. Fish school in breathtaking numbers on the edge of the drop off. Liveaboard or Resort, Maldivian diving will not disappoint.

You can dive all year round in the Maldives with constant water temperatures at an inviting 28 degrees. Winter sun is always popular and between November to April it plans to book well in advance. Our summer months are a bit quiet in the Maldives but the weather and diving remains world class. Hanivaru is the hot site at the moment and active with massive manta aggregations between July - November.

Diving Highlights

Manta are number one on the wish list for most divers and snorkelers visiting the area but you can also find whalesharks, turtles and good macro life on many dive sites. The Maldives is not a wreck diving destination.

  • Manta
  • Whalesharks
  • Turtles
  • Porcelain crabs
  • Clown fish

Top dive sites to visit: Fish Head, Maaya, Vadoo, Hanivaru, Kuredu Caves, Orimas are just a handful of the highlights.

Scuba Travel Tips

Liveaboards are excellent value all around with some of the best diving and snorkeling for non divers. Not all drinks are normally included in Maldivian liveaboard packages so be sure you know what the extras are. You don't need a visa for the Maldives but will need a passport that is valid for 6 months from your date of return.
