Explore the remote dive sites of the southern atolls by liveaboard and treat yourself to a few days in resort after your adventure. Recommended for experienced divers.
Your adventure begins on board the MY Sheena spending a week diving the Nilandhe, Meemu, Laamu and Thaa atolls in the southern Maldives. Diving this region is especially rewarding for experienced divers with some fantastic drift diving in the channels and frequent sightings of large marine life. It's relatively unexplored and includes the best sites on each atoll as well as an element of expedition diving, exploring unknown areas.
After your week of diving, relax at Filitheyo Island Resort for three nights. This is the only island resort on the unspoilt Faafu Atoll, an old favourite choice for many divers and a great place to get away from the world for a few days.
