CROISIÈRE PLONGÉE MALDIVES

The Maldives is often referred to as a paradise for divers: nothing is more true. To believe that nature has created the country and its 26 atolls for underwater exploration! Between the protected coral reefs where one can admire the mantas, and the multitude of passes that attract the benches of fish and sharks, difficult to get tired. Not to mention that some atolls, located in the far south or the far North and recently explored, have not yet revealed all their richness... The Maldives diving cruise is ideal for discovering the most beautiful sites of the archipelago.

Plongez en petit comité au milieu des raies mantas, des requins et des bancs de poissons tropicaux. Toutes les espèces de poissons tropicaux ainsi qu’une grande variété de coraux et d’invertébrés sont présentes aux Maldives. Les plongées avec des tortues, requins ou raies sont habituelles. Les chances de rencontrer un requin baleine sont importantes toute l’année. Notamment sur le long du récif extérieur de l’atoll d’Ari Sud et dans la baie d’Hanifaru.

LES PLONGÉES

Les fonds sous-marins maldiviens permettent de réaliser deux types de plongées : des plongées faciles, à faible profondeur, autour de patates de corail, avec des raies mantas autour des stations de nettoyage ou sur des tombants du récif extérieur ; des plongées plus sportives, dans les passes, pour observer la faune pélagique qui s’y concentre au moment où les courants sont relativement forts.

QUELLE EST LA MEILLEURE PÉRIODE POUR UNE CROISIÈRE PLONGÉE MALDIVES ?

La meilleure saison pour une croisière plongée Maldives s’étale d’août à mai. La haute saison est de décembre à avril.

Durant ces 9 mois, les conditions de courant et de visibilité sont différentes. C’est pourquoi l’itinéraire de votre croisière plongée Maldives s’adapte pour observer un maximum d’espèces. En particulier, les raies mantas et les requins baleines qui suivent les concentrations de plancton.

En février et mars la météo et les conditions de plongées sont parfaites. C’est « le top du top » pour une croisière plongée Maldives !!
La visibilité sera très bonne à l’est dans les passes avec un courant toujours rentrant. Ce sont les conditions idéales pour observer la faune pélagique qui s’y concentre (requins de récif, requins gris, raies aigles, barracudas, carangues…).

A l’ouest des atolls les mantas se rassemblent pour suivre les concentrations de plancton. Vous plongerez à côté des stations de nettoyage pour suivre les balais de raies mantas. Et vous rencontrerez fréquemment des requins baleines à l’extérieur des atolls.

A perfect cruise

A perfect cruise, great dives in beautiful surroundings. A friendly and smiling crew. A very nice and always professional diving staff. The intimate side (10 divers) is very appreciable.

Best parts:Great dives, a cook full of resources and ideas, a small group (only 10 divers)
Worst parts:It's a bit of a small cabin, but for the time we spend in it...

Beau bateau et superbes plongées

C’était notre première croisière, donc nous ne sommes pas des experts…. mais nous avons vraiment apprécié l’Adora, les guides et la croisière. C’était en mars avec une très belle météo et un itinéraire dans le grand Sud des Maldives. La plongée a été juste remarquable et nous avons vu des mantas, un grand nombre de requins et beaucoup de poissons en tout genre. La chambre est luxueuse et immense pour un bateau. Nous remercions les guides pour le choix des sites et leur grande connaissance des tous les atolls du sud. Nous avons navigué la nuit pour plonger au petit matin dans les passes de l’atoll d’Huvadhoo et nager au milieu des dauphins…

Best parts:the comfort of the Adora, the divemasters

Trés bon séjour

The Adora is a very beautiful boat, luxurious and very well thought out to enjoy a breathtaking view of the atolls. The "Diving Dhoni" is ideal for divers with equipment that remains at the station throughout the cruise and storage for cameras. Very good stay, good quality of service for the whole crew. Assad, Ibbe, and Marc were excellent guides, we dived in small groups, each at his own pace to enjoy the mantas and take as many pictures as possible. Many thanks to Assad for his photo advice. I have very nice views of the sharks and the school of jacks in Fotteyo Pass. The 2 dives on Saturday is a very good idea.

Que du bon. Très belle croisière plongée Maldives

Je regarderai l’an prochain pour la croisière à l’extrême sud.

Incroyable

on a tout vu à bord de la croisière Adora : mantas, beaucoup de requins et 2 requins baleines en soirée derrière le bateau pendant plus de 4 heures…vraiment des très bons souvenirs et des image incroyables avec ma caméra Go Pro

Les plus :le bateau luxueux, les requins baleines et les cuisiniers

Que du bonheur…

Tout a été parfait de notre arrivée à l’aéroport des Maldives : transfert, embarquement, plongées; jusqu’au moment du départ…J’espérais que le temps passerait plus lentement et je vous dit qu’il faut en profiter dès les premiers instants.

Des très belles plongées avec beaucoup à voir : raies manta, requins, whaleshark, de la vie macro, poissons fantômes, crabes, tortues, raies aigles, pastenagues, variétés de poissons à profusion .. etc etc .. trop à mentionner. Super guides de plongée, de délicieux repas servis en buffet lorsque nous revenons de chaque plongée… et nous avons rencontré d’autres plongeurs à bord avec qui nous partirons en voyage avec plaisir…

We really had a very good experience with the Adora and the agency Sous l'Océan which took care of everything. The staff was professional and very dedicated.

Nous sommes tellement heureux d’avoir choisi ce bateau de croisière. Si nous revenons, nous ne chercherons certainement pas plus loin. Je vous recommande vivement l’agence et l’adora.

Les plus :Le bateau et les guides
Les moins :séjour trop court

Meilleure semaine de plongée

L’équipage était vraiment très professionnel et sympathique. Surtout en cuisine avec des repas succulents comparés à mes autres croisières aux Maldives.

Nous avons effectué 18 plongées, toutes différentes avec des mantas, requins et une faune très abondante. Nous avons découverts les atolls du nord avec beaucoup de plaisir et nous y reviendront pour la spéciale de Hanimadhoo à l’atoll de Raa.

Un conseil, les courants sont parfois assez fort (pleine lune), pensez à emporter un crochet pour récif, bien qu’il soit aussi disponible sur l’Amba.

Les plus :les sites variés et pas d'autres bateaux
Les moins :une semaine c'est court

Very beautiful boat

The cabins are very spacious and even the bathroom was much larger than most cruise ships. The crew is fantastic and does everything possible to ensure the happiness of the customers, and the main lounge is spacious and comfortable. You can relax in several outdoor areas.

The diving in the Far North was incredible. Beautiful visibility and such abundant marine life. And we have never had to share the sites with another cruise ship.

We highly recommend this trip! Thanks to Sous l'Océan

Best parts:No other divers on site. The mantas

Great cruise with the !Amba

An absolutely awesome 10-day diving cruise! Everything went smoothly and simply, from welcoming Nicole to the airport. The diving program has been organized so that each time they are surprising and dazzling (grey sharks, white tips, manta rays, eagle rays, nurse sharks) and even 2 whale sharks, one in daytime diving and the 2nd at night around theAmba. The instructors are both very professional, constantly attentive and caring, and create a friendly atmosphere on the boat.
The Maldivian crew is adorable, and the meals, prepared on board with great care by the cook, are to fall to the ground! Maldivian specialities often made with tuna or chicken, vegetables, rice or pasta, fruit, cakes... Enough to satisfy the hunger created by the 3 daily dives. One thing is certain, it is impossible to lose a gram during these 10 days!) But we enjoy it in every way.
Jérôme Whoever took care of the reservation is a very efficient and available correspondent.

Best parts:in the north, you are alone in the world: no divers on the horizon...
Worst parts:nada

The cruise went perfectly.

The cruise went perfectly. The boat, the Gurahaliis beautiful, with all the comfort. The crew of the Gurahali like a diving boat is incredibly kind and available. The meals were delicious thanks to Saman, a talented chef. The dives were all more beautiful than the others. Jean-Charles and Charlotte, our DM dive guides during this stay were very professional, welcoming and warm. The diving boat was spacious. The rhythm of the days was ideal. The visits to the fishing islands and Malé with Charlotte as a tourist guide were a real plus. And the surprise reserved by the crew was simply extraordinary. Everything was done to create a great atmosphere.

Best parts:Absolutely everything was perfect.
Worst parts:NOTHING NOTHING

Incredible experience in the Maldives

Awesome! TheAmba is currently the only diving boat in operation in the northern Maldives, so the diving sites were not crowded with boats and divers.

Sleep on the upper deck under the stars. It was wonderful. The cabins are very good too, as well as the meals!

Best parts:Varieties of dives and no one else butAmba the dive site

We'll be right back!

Best parts:The welcome of the crew, the atmosphere set by the guides, their humour and their desire to please us by looking for sites each more beautiful than the next.

It was really perfect, our instructor,

It was beautiful. We saw everything: sharks (a lot!), mantas on the stations at 15m (for 60 minutes), schools of jacks, tuna and lots of soft corals in foteyo and in the south (I love it!). I came alone and the atmosphere on board was very friendly on theKoimala. Thanks to the 2 guides for the choice of dives and for the animations. The crew is very careful and very friendly. Really perfect. The boat is fine and thank you very much to the cooks and the bartender for the marguaritas. I'll be back as soon as I can......

What can I say about this trip?

What can I say about this 9-day trip to the Maldives on theKoimala, awesome, top-notch!
Reception at the airport, transfer to the boat RAS
Brief of arrival clear, luggage left in the cabin.
Lunch and first dive on the day of arrival, cool!
Then all the other perfect dives, the briefs and the organization of the dives with the guides, always as efficient and professional.
The crew always polite and discreet.
For the underwater fauna, magic: Mantas, rays, sharks, turtles, whale sharks..... happiness.
If you are on a southern Maldives cruise, think of me!
