1200 Islands in 26 Atolls, the warm azure Indian Ocean and pristine beaches; the Maldives is dream destination for divers and non-divers alike!
For divers the Maldives offers many different dives, from relaxed reef exploring to heart racing channel drifts there is something for everyone. The Maldives is a great distance from the next nearest landmass, this is one of the main factors which contributes to the Maldives being able to provide such spectacular diving encounters. The ocean currents that pass through the Maldives bring with them plankton, as these currents pass through the many channels in the Maldives, it concentrates the plankton which in turn is one of the major factors that helps to create the Maldives incredible marine ecosystem.
One of the biggest attractions for divers is the year-round chance of encountering Whale Sharks and Manta. The Maldives is home to vast numbers of Manta and has countless cleaning stations that can offer incredible dives for all levels of diver. The plankton that is concentrated around the Maldives attracts breath taking Whale Sharks which feed on the tiny creatures, an encounter with a Whale Shark is a memory a diver never forgets!
