The best destinations for diving and snorkelling
Almost all the atoll islands in the Maldives are surrounded by corals and most of them are ideal for snorkelling but atolls such as the North male atoll, South Ari Atoll, Gaafu Alifu Atoll and Kaafu Atoll stands out from the rest since they are home to a higher concentration off corals which in turn brings in more marine life.
Best time to visit the Maldives for underwater explorations
Due to the tropical location of the archipelago, you could visit the Maldives throughout the year, however, the duration between January and April are considered the best since the weather, water temperature and underwater visibility will be ideal for underwater activities.
Resorts for diving and snorkelling
Most of the resort properties the likes of Adaaran Club Rannalhi have snorkelling and diving included in the leisure activity list since underwater exploration is one of the prime attraction of Maldives hotel specials.
Things to remember
Though diving and snorkelling seem safe, you should stay vigilant at all times when you are underwater. Do some research and get to know about the marine creatures that you will come across when you dive and stay away from any venomous or dangerous creatures. Remember that reefs are one of the most fragile ecosystems in Nature and enjoy its beauty without inflicting any damage to them.
