The Adventure Begins
Immerse yourself in enormous shoals of butterflyfish and oriental sweetlips; drift the channels with white tips, grey reefs, hammerheads and whale sharks; descend deep sea ridges with eagle rays and mobulas, giant napoleon fish and blue marlin; spot turtles at dawn, dolphins at dusk and mass seasonal gatherings of manta rays. Exhilarating sites include vibrant thilas, exciting channels, coral-filled overhangs and fascinating wrecks. The Maldive Islands have some excellent coral reefs, but it’s the abundance of marine life throughout the country that sets it apart from other dive destinations and its life beneath the water’s surface is becoming ever more respected by scuba divers in the know.
The Maldives archipelago is located 300 miles southwest of India and 450 miles west of Sri Lanka in the vast expanse of the magnificent Indian Ocean. Because of direct international flights the location is ideal for divers from over the world who are looking for a dive destination with the ultimate in big fish action!
