Frequently Asked Questions

Location

The Maldives is in the Indian Ocean, a 10-14hr flight from the UK, around 370 miles southwest of Sri Lanka. It is made up of 1200 islands, stretching over 500 miles from north to south. The main arrival airport for all flights to the Maldives is Male's airport island (MLE). The Maldives is famous for its great snorkelling, manta cleaning stations, whalesharks, shark dives and fast drift dives through channels. The water remains a constant 27-28 C year round.

Weather and Climate

Whilst there are 2 monsoon seasons (Nov-Apr & May-Oct), the diving remains excellent year round. Diving operators will changes their dive sites in each season to find the best hot spots for the big fish! Traditionally, our summer months tend to be windier with a higher chance of rain, whilst the winter months are flatter. However, the seasons are much less predictable in reality and its a fabulous place to dive whatever time of year!

There are corners and channels for adrenalin junkies hoping for pelagic action, underwater islands teeming with life, overhangs dripping with colourful soft corals and vast expanses of out reef for great drift dives, and this is just the beginning. An exciting part of the diving at Innahura, especially in the early days, will be discovering the untouched reefs. It's location brings with it explorer opportunities for divers who don't mind if there is no ready-prepared map of the site and instead seek the thrill of adventure and discovery.
