This is the Best of the Maldives – and it delivers exactly that. This is where you dive the best and most famous dive sites of the Maldives in a week of wonderful liveaboard diving across Male, Ari & Vaavu atolls.
Enjoy a dive holiday that gives you all you could wish for from the iconic sites of North Male, South Male, Ari & Vaavu Atoll. Awaiting you are channels (Kandus), pinnacles (Thilas) & cleaning stations where you have every chance of meeting mantas, a variety of sharks and mesmerising marine life of so many varieties.
This itinerary gives you a marine mix of big fish such as shark and manta dives as well as reef dives, reef fish, morays and macro life. Get up close at the cleaning stations without disturbing the locals! One of the best known dive sites is Fish Head; a marine protected site, this medium size pinnacle has many resident turtles, huge schools of fusiliers being stalked by trevally and patrolling grey reef sharks. Overhangs and a large school of blue line snapper, the iconic reef fish of the Maldives make this a genuinely great dive.
A sunset/night dive at Alimatha, Vaavu atoll is a must to have a memorable experience with the resident nurse sharks, these gentle sharks reach up to 3m and offer an up close encounter as they gather here at the end of each day. We do not follow an exact itinerary; flexibility is key irrespective of the year you visit, this underwater world is yours (and ours) for the exploring.
Total cost is £3265.
