Most dives will involve going to depth and diving in channels with strong currents, which can be challenging, therefore this itinerary is not for inexperienced divers. Divers may find some dives challenging and may be asked by the Cruise Director to skip dives that are not suitable for their diving experience. All diving is made from dhonis to give precise entry and exit points.
Please note: Due to weather and diving conditions, it's not always possible to visit each Atoll. Your Cruise Director will decide the best ones to visit at the time of diving.
Dive Spots at a Glance:
February to November is the best time to sail to the southerly Maldivian atolls and dive into the shark action in these out-of-the-way southern dive sites between Huvadhoo and Addu (Seenu) Atolls. Spend a week away from the madding crowds and dive Foammulah and Huvadhoo on the lookout for the Indian Ocean's larger residents; tiger sharks, silver tips, grey reef sharks, whale sharks and many, many more.
From Male we take you to Laamu (Kadhdhoo) or Addu (Gan) by domestic flight to join your liveaboard, and then it's off on our adventure. Laamu is an oval shaped southern atoll, which has some of the top dive sites in the world such as Guraidhoo and Gan. In Foammulah you can expect to meet tiger and silver tip sharks. At Huvadhoo, one of the deepest lagoons in the Maldives, the currents are ideal for even more shark sightings including, hopefully, whale sharks and silkies, hammerheads, tiger and grey sharks spotted most of the time. There are swift channel dives with several kandus; Vilingilli, Nilandhoo, Mareehaa and Kondeey. Addu Atoll hosts the WWII wreck, HMS British Loyalty, as well as popular majestic Manta Cleaning stations with more relaxing sites to either start or end the trip with too.
This itinerary suits divers looking for 'away from it all and different diving' with quite a focus on drift diving.
Witness schooling Manta Rays all year round. Along with Whitetip and Grey Reef Sharks and Hawksbill Turtles.
Huvadhoo Atoll is for the shark lovers. Nurse sharks, grey reef, whitetip, blacktip, tiger and even thresher sharks.
Whale sharks, tiger sharks, thresher sharks, oceanic whitetip, hammerhead sharks and grey reef sharks. Different species of rays. Fuvahmulah Atoll is an underwater photographer's heaven.
With beautiful water clarity and pelagic species seen all year round, it's no wonder that Addu Atoll is favourite spot for all level of divers.
