Dive the Maldives
Only £1795 inc flts!
The Maldives Seasonal Sensations itinerary wends its way between Male and Baa atolls, cherry picking the highlight dive sites for that season. Timing is everything - dive the east side of the atolls, when sites that are at their seasonal hottest for sharks, manta and gorgeous coral reefs.
Make this time of year stand out for all the right reasons. Though the visibility is often decreased, the increased plankton means it can be the best time and place in the Maldives to see manta rays and whalesharks... more than making up for the reduced viz.

Martin Edge can't wait to go back!

This weekend Martin Edge returned from his escorted week to Bunakin Oasis resort. He fell in love with it so much he can't wait to go back! - In Martin's words
"The bottom line for me is that it is one of the best trips and resorts I have ever taken a group to. We were all totally blown away.
It’s the best Resort I think I have ever visited. It’s also the best food and the best staff. It’s the best attention to detail to provide what enthusiastic uwp want and require. For example the Camera room downstairs totally blew me away. The best dive boats that I can think of and again catered for the needs of underwater photographers.
The two dive guides which were assigned to us when we arrived choose some ideal sites for us again and again. They both seemed to have a sense of what I particularly wanted out of a photo dive site right from day 1. "

Pyjama Slug –  Findex with Jim

The critter we are going to look at today is Chromodoris africana, the Four-Coloured Nudibranch but better known as the Pyjama slug in the Red Sea.  A member of the Choromodorididae family, a large nudibranch family with over 360 species, they are one of the more common species that can be found in the Red Sea. It is very easy to mistake for other species while you are diving so hopefully I can help you tell them apart!. see the rest of the Findex here

Jim is a qualified marine biologist with over 10 years experience in the field studying marine life so if you have any questions feel free to get in touch!

Komodo tales of a photo trip - by Mario

Diving Komodo is incredibly varied, sites such as Batu Monch offer sandy slopes full with coral bummies packed with healthy corals and sponges, seamounts and pinnacles such as Crystal Rock and Castle Rock offer a bit more challenging dives with stronger currents that bring loads of nutrients. This will attract schools of fish such as fusiliers and surgeons and the big guys that prey on them such as jacks, travalleys, dog tooth tuna and even a few sharks. see the rest of the blog here

Thanks to his experience as a dive guide and a photographer Mario will discuss characteristic behaviours, technique, equipment and composition.
