Diving in the Maldives

Amazing coral reefs, best diving sites. Thrilling underwater-experiences. Generous hospitality. Pristine beaches. The perfect blend of adventure, luxury and deep relaxation. Welcome to the Maldives, your ultimate tropical retreat in the turquoise-and-blue waters of the Indian Ocean.

Divers from all over the world come here to experience the country’s legendary array of scuba diving sites. This friendly island nation with its mesmerizing marine environment is simply irresistible and a hint of tropical adventure is always in the air.

One such adventure is to go on a scuba dive cruise aboard a so-called “safari boat”; an exclusive experience that captures some of the country’s unique maritime heritage. Just like on an African safari, guests on a scuba diving safari get to see the best diving spots; only the journey takes place in the vibrant coral gardens of the Indian Ocean instead of the dry African Savannah.

With a bit of luck, and the right scuba dive locations you can come across all of the Maldivian “Big Five”: peaceful Whale Sharks; sleek Reef Sharks; inquisitive Manta Rays; impressive Eagle Rays and playful Dolphins. Encounters with one or more of these fascinating creatures are actually usually a daily occurrence on diving safaris.

It is little wonder then, that in recent years diving cruises have become one of the most popular holiday options. In 2011 the Maldives were selected as the best cruise destination at the World Travel Awards — a more than well-deserved honour. A maldives dive cruise in the Maldives allows guests to experience more than one region and truly relax as they are chauffeured around the lush atolls in style to the best scuba diving locations.

Maldivian dive cruise ships offer one of the most comfortable ways of experiencing the exciting sport of scuba diving. The tropical climate means that air and water temperatures rarely drop beneath 28 degrees Celsius, that’s 82 degrees Fahrenheit. Perfect for dive in maldives Highly experienced and professionally trained maldives diving instructors guide small groups of divers. The accompanying boat, the so-called Dhoni, is used as a floating dive base, which drops off and later picks up divers right on top of the dive site. There is no lugging around of heavy equipment or struggling to get back to the mooring line at the end of a dive.

But the best thing about scubadiving in the Maldives scuba is, of course, the incredible underwater world that lies right beneath the surface. Divers can look forward to seeing anything from micro sensations such as Gobies, Blennies, Nudibranches and crustaceans to giants like Whales, Whale Sharks, Mantas and Sharks. Rays, turtles and dolphins are also no rarity here. Don’t miss out on the weekly night dive because, once the sun has set, the reefs become a stage for some of the most amazing underwater scenes.

Despite relatively low prices, Maldivian dive safaris offer a high standard of comfort and service. The current trend is moving towards up-market facilities and services such as Jacuzzis on deck, spa treatments, gourmet food and picnics on uninhabited islands.

    Impressive Video I must accept! The ones in the deep inside the water are really incredible. However, I cannot restrict myself from expressing my experiences that I had a few months ago at the Grand Cayman in the Caribbean Islands. The place has quite a few resorts, but I am overwhelmed by the extraordinary facilities at the Wyndham Reef Resort Grand Cayman( With superb facilities for everyone, the Wyndham Reef Resort offers the finest facilities at the scuba diving expeditions. I would like to mention that Grand Cayman has more than 365 diver centers, and most of them have something special in them. You cannot compare your experiences at one center with those of another place. I wonder the diversified characteristics of the Nature here. It is simply amazing!

    If you are planning for another such experience that you had in Maldives, then make sure you get in touch with Wyndham Reef Resort in Grand Cayman and gather some lifetime experiences for yourself…

    The idea of tropical islands with white pristine beaches and the endless view of the ocean is embodied in one of Indonesia’s oldest province: Maluku.

    Looks amazing:)
    I have some questions for those who have already been there, though:
    1. Is snorkeling also recommended? (Whats the difference between diving with real equipment and snorkeling?)
    2. What other water sports are there to do in the maldives? (wake boarding, surfing, tubing etc?)
    3. Are those sharks and dangerous-looking fishes.. dangerous?
    4. Are the maldives a place you want to bring your children?
    Thank you:)
