Deep South Southern Sharks Description
Our Deep South Southern Sharks itinerary will take you to down to the the southerly atolls in the Maldives on a liveaboard holiday that is anything but ordinary. Get in on the shark action of the secluded southern dive sites around Huvadhoo area. Spend a week in isolated paradise as you dive these remote south atolls looking for the ocean's larger inhabitants - silver tips, grey reef sharks and even whalesharks.
The best way to dive the southern atolls is to combine your liveaboard with a domestic flight. All of the trips will include a domestic flight at least 1 way and the exact departure/arrival airport will vary from trip to trip. On most trips this means you will dive either between Male and Huvadhoo or Male and Gaan depending on which fleet you select. Some itineraries may require 2 domestic flights, diving between Laamu, Huvadhoo and/or Gan. On itineraries where you travel down to Gaan, you may also dive at Fommulah and Addu atolls.
On this itinerary you may dive Meemu, Thaa and Laamu, with opportunities for coral dives and a manta cleaning station, and pay special attention to Huvadhoo atoll - this is where the pelagic action begins in earnest. Prepare to come face to face with sharks. The lagoon inside Huvadhoo is one of the deepest in the Maldives and the shifting currents are ideal for shark sightings, including whalesharks. Silkies, hammerheads and grey sharks are all seen most weeks. These are the kind of sightings that will make your dive log stand out! There are speedy channel dives with several Kandus (Vilingilli, Nilandhoo, Mareehaa and Kondeey) as well as reef thila dives (Gazeera and Vaadhoo). The night dive on the Hyatt reef should not be missed!
The Deep South Southern Sharks atolls itinerary will suit any diver that has explored the north and central Maldives but not yet ventured this far south. Fewer divers travel this way. Due to the remote nature of the dive sites, the Deep South Southern Sharks itinerary is more suitable for experienced divers (100+ dives) and there is a good focus on drift diving. This is a nerve tingling week that will stand out for all the right reasons. Think you have dived the Maldives? Think again!
