The amount of land that lies above sea level in the Maldives represents only a tiny fraction of the country’s overall land mass, most of which lies below sea level. This unique land mass holds the key to fabulous variety of marine species and support an incredibly rich marine ecosystem that has evolved over millennia forming the habitat and nurseries for many of the reefs inhabitants.

The Maldives boasts an incredible number of dive and snorkel sites. The diverse nature of dive sites in the Maldives makes it suitable for divers of all experience levels. Within each atoll there are sheltered reefs located away from fast flowing currents that are suitable for training new divers as well as those who have recently qualified. By contrast experienced divers will enjoy some of the best drift dives in the world.

There are two distinct seasons in the Maldives that need be considered when diving:

North East Monsoon (November to April - Represents the Maldivian summer and is generally characterised by drier conditions. Through this season, the visibility on the Eastern sides of the atolls is excellent, the current is typically faster at the start of the season and decreases in power as the season progresses, and water temperatures remain fairly consistent at around 28° centigrade. Although the visibility drops on the Western sides of the atolls during this season, divers are more likely to encounter Manta Rays and Whale Sharks.

South West Monsoon (May to December –Shifts the focus on diving to the western sides of the atolls. Dive sites in the west experience wonderful clear visibility and slightly cooler water temperatures, attracting many of the shark species closer to the surface. During this season Manta Rays and Whale Sharks will typically only be found of the Eastern edge of the atolls. Sea conditions can be rougher and there is a slight increase in rainfall during this season. However, the diving remains superb.

Most resorts have a PADI Dive centres located within the resort or nearby resort with variety of daily programs and courses to suite most divers. Some provide diving programs for children. Some programs covers up to 6 days non-limited diving. We can tailor-make a diving program to suite your requirement.

There is variety of courses from the beginner courses for those who would like to get the feel of diving, to specialty course to extend your already expert knowledge to other areas such as underwater naturalist or drift diving. There are several other courses available including Rescue Diver, Adventure Diver, EFR Diver, Nitrox Course, Assistant Instructor course and more.

Speak to us you can do your course while staying at a resort.
