Are you looking to dive into nature and fully immerse yourself in what it has to offer? The Maldives will not disappoint you.
Do I need experience?
While most water activities require a certain level of experience, diving can be easily learned in a few days. It is also advised that you go on diving adventures with people who have prior experience, in order to avoid any mishaps. Although diving is considered one of the best things to do in Maldives, you should not attempt it unless you are truly confident.
When is the best time to go?
Hanifaru Bay is very well known for the Manta Rays that populate the area. For this reason, if you’re looking to swim with the Manta rays, the best time to plan your trip would be from late June to October, when the conditions are said to be optimal. At the same time, book a luxury stay at a nearby property such as Amilla Maldives Resort and Residences for a holistic Maldivian experience.
Can I take photographs?
Well, of course! That is the best part about going diving. If you have the right, water-proof equipment, then this is the perfect opportunity to get up close and personal with the mesmerising underwater organisms. However, do keep in mind that you must keep your flash off since this is an area that is categorised as a UNESCO biosphere reserve and lights and strobes are not allowed without prior permission.
What do I keep in mind?
It is important to keep in mind that you’re enjoying a part of nature; therefore, being respectful is important. With climate change happening right before our eyes, it starts with ourselves, by doing our part in sustaining the beauty of nature.
