The beauty of the Maldives is not just limited to its stunning sunsets, luxury resorts or bespoke travel experiences; an even more enchanting world awaits you beneath the surface of the gentle waves.
Marine Life to Watch Out for
Leave the comfort of your Maldives island resorts and dive into the nearby waters. Be sure to keep an eye out for these rare marine creatures: the intimidating but gentle whale shark, the curious green sea turtle, the playful dolphins, and the lively manta rays.
Whether you are an experienced diver or a first-time swimmer, it is essential to only go diving with a PADI dive instructor for optimal safety. Many resorts such as Huvafen Fushi Maldives offer in-resort diving instructors who are more than happy to accommodate you on your adventure.
All divers must take it upon themselves to not disturb the reef beds and the local marine flora and fauna, most of which are protected by the government of Maldives.
Diving Near the Shore
For divers with young children or for those reluctant to dive in the open ocean, shore diving, which is diving closer to the shoreline, is a suitable and safer substitute.
