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!

Travel

If you make your own flight arrangements to Male, please check the transfer arrangements before confirming your flights. Please do not finalise any flight arrangements yourself before your liveaboard space is confirmed as being held.

Stopovers

As most flights are not direct, it is simple to add a stop over en route - simply ask your travel consultant for a quote. Sri Lanka is our most popular, up coming destination - with beautiful beaches, it's a great alternative to staying in the Maldives resorts. If you are feeling a bit more adventurous, why not head into the jungle for look for elephants and leopards. Or if you are a culture vulture, we highly recommend a Kandy city tour. The choice is yours! As we are able to book most major airlines to the Maldives, you can also add a stop to break up your flight. Popular locations include Dubai, Doha and Abu Dhabi.

The conditions at Lily Beach are perfect for beginners! Prodivers offers a number of options that let you get your hair wet and experience what it is like to breathe underwater for the very first time. It may feel overwhelming at first, but if the chance of coming face to face with a clown fish or a turtle isn't convincing enough, then a possible manta ray or whale shark sighting maybe is.

Dive into the beautiful underwater realm that gives you endless opportunities to lay your eyes on the 5-star coral reef metropolis, buzzing with marine life. Novice snorkellers can admire the colourful marine life from the flat surface of the Indian Ocean, be it on the well protected and easily accessible house reef or by joining one of Prodivers' several snorkelling excursions. Divers will know that the South Ari Atoll is home to the Maldives' best diving and Lily Beach offers an excellent jumping-off point for trying to find everything that's on your Maldives bucket list.

South Ari Atoll is home to some of the most famous dive spots across the Maldives. Colourful coral formations, a huge variety of fish life, wrecks and seasonal sightings of manta rays and whale sharks have made it one of the world's top diving destinations. With more than 50 dive sites within easy reach, and new ones being discovered, it is easy to understand why so many people coming back for more.
