Maldives Diving Cruise
The most beautiful spots of the archipelago within reach of your fins.
Diving in the Maldives
Dive in small groups among manta rays, sharks and schools of tropical fish in the Maldives.
The Maldives is often referred to as a paradise for divers: nothing could be truer. It seems that nature created the country and its 26 atolls for underwater exploration! Between the protected coral reefs where you can admire mantas, and the multitude of passes that attract schools of fish and sharks, it is difficult to get bored. Not to mention that some atolls, located in the Deep South or the Far North and explored only recently, have not yet revealed all their richness... A diving cruise is ideal to discover the most beautiful sites of the archipelago.
All species of tropical fish as well as a wide variety of corals and invertebrates are present in the Maldives. Dives with turtles, sharks or rays are common. The chances of encountering a whale shark are high all year round. Especially along the outer reef of South Ari Atoll and in Hanifaru Bay.
When to go diving in the Maldives ?
The best season for a dive cruise in the Maldives is from August to May. The high season is from December to April.
During these 9 months, the current and visibility conditions are different. This is why the itinerary of your Maldives dive cruise is adapted to observe a maximum of species. In particular, manta rays and whale sharks that follow the plankton concentrations.
In February and March the weather and the diving conditions are perfect. It is "the best of the best" for a Maldives dive cruise!
Visibility will be very good in the eastern passes with a current that is always returning. These are the ideal conditions to observe the pelagic fauna which is concentrated there (reef sharks, grey sharks, eagle rays, barracudas, jacks...).
To the west of the atolls the mantas gather to follow the plankton concentrations. You will dive next to the cleaning stations to follow the manta rays. And you will frequently encounter whale sharks outside the atolls.
