Maldives Diving Holidays
The Republic of the Maldives is an 868 kilometre chain of over 1,000 islands strung across the Indian Ocean grouped into ring-shaped reefs, or atolls; swaying palms, pristine sandy beaches and crystal blue waters. Reef life in the Maldives is prolific with over 700 common fish species and visibility often exceeding 50 metres, a haven for snorkellers and divers alike. Some of the best diving can be found in the channels between the atolls especially on the corners, where fast moving water attracts large pelagics and offers exciting drift dives. For the more experienced divers we recommend a week on a liveaboard exploring the atolls. Diving regulations state that the maximum recreational limit is a maximum of 30 metres. It is mandatory that all divers use a computer and carry a surface marker buoy (SMB) when diving.

Diving was relaxing and easy, quite shallow, a nice chance to take pictures and the dive school was great. Very professional outfit with good kit and very helpful (lovely boat too). The villa was excellent, the water villa with pool was mega! Anyway a great holiday, time to start thinking about the next one!
