Rich with over 3000 spectacular coral reef diving areas, high visibility throughout the year and waters that are clear enough to see a passing fish as far as 50m away, the Maldives has acquired the reputation as one of the worlds most enchanting dive destinations.
A diving trip to the Maldives will see you diving with over 1100 species of fish, 5 species of sea turtles, 21 species of whale and dolphin and 187 coral varieties.
The Ari Atoll located in the north-west of the Maldives is considered one of the best diving locations and offers great reliability for viewing big fish such as manta rays, hammerhead sharks, whale sharks, schools of blacktail barracuda and Napoleon wrasse.
With a myriad of nutrient-rich channels the colourful soft corals, sponges, pinnacles of rock called ‘thilas’ that rise up from the ocean floor as well as many caves, the Maldives offers a beautiful underwater garden with an abundance of marine life.
Diving is possible all year round in the Maldives with December to April being the best time for diving. For those keen to see the underwater world but hesitant to dive, snorkelling is a wonderful alternative. The crystal clear waters make snorkelling in the Maldives a unique experience with a large variety of marine life flourishing in the turquoise waters of the lagoons.
