Diving

Diving in the Maldives is known for its diversity. From tiny nudibranchs and hard to spot ghostpipe fish, through eels, turtles, big schools of snappers, fusiliers and reef sharks to our favourite manta rays and whale sharks seen all year round. Much of the diving in the Maldives is drift diving. Due to this all dives will be made from a a beautiful custom built diving dhoni (60 feet in length) that is very easy to dive from. It has ample space for divers, their equipment, photography equipment, hot water, a full bathroom and 5 compressors. Water temperature varies from 80F (27 Celsius) in wet season to 86F (30 Celsius) in dry season  a 3mm wetsuit recommended.
