Maldives have become one of the world’s best scuba diving destinations, and the main credit goes to the white stretches of sandy beaches, vibrant coral reefs, clear turquoise waters, scuba diving sites and rich marine life.
Maldives is known for its luxurious and exclusive holiday
resorts, however there are also a number of liveaboard operators that offer
scuba diving cruises that take their guests to many dive sites across the Maldives.
Many divers from all over the world, are keen to dive in the Maldives, and this
is because of the presence of whale sharks, manta rays, eagle rays, hammerhead
sharks, reef sharks and moray eels, but that’s not all, there are a large variety
of smaller fish and coral species as well.
There are several dive spots scattered across the atolls in the Maldives, the most famous and the most precise dive sites are found in the Ari Atoll, which is the western part and the largest atoll in the Maldives.
The northern Male’ Atoll and the Southern Male’ Atoll are both located at the
east side of the Maldives and is home to a large sum of tourist resorts and some
of the finest scuba diving sites in the Maldives.
Moreover, Addu Atoll is the only area in the Maldives that was not effected by the 1998 goobal coral bleaching and now extends to some of the biggest wreck with a variety of big fish all year round, and is the perfect location for scuba diving.
