Part 1: Overview of Scuba Diving in Maldives

该Maldives is a chain of Islands and atolls approximately 700km South West of Sri-Lanka. TheMaldivesare widely considered one of the top dive destinations, and much of the country is a biosphere reserve as per the UN, with plans to make the entire country a UN biosphere within 5 years.

Reef Top

Maldivesconsists of 26 atolls - a ring-shaped coral structure often surrounding an Island and enclosing a lagoon within it and 1322 Islands. The atolls and islands are formed by submerged volcanoes that create a landmass above the surface, which subsequently gets surrounded by reef formation. The formations result in a通道的复杂系统,reefs & underwater pinnacles that, in turn, attract and house a wide variety of exciting marine life, corals and crustaceans/critters.

Pretty Nurse



海峡潜水一世s particularly challenging. Crossing the channels requires staying below the lip of the channel to avoid being drifted out into the blue; this can often be as deep as 35-40 meters. Diving into the channel often requires fighting or managing currents, reef hooking, and being comfortable with difficult conditions.

Cleaning Morning

Diving in The Maldives can basically be broken down into 3 major environments - channels, thilas & farus:


  • 出入口的环礁,通过它的上层生活进入环礁饲料对珊瑚礁的生活。

  • 强劲的水流&往往具有挑战性的潜水。新金沙线上新金沙线上潜水员have to be careful of the strong currents and depth.

  • 珊瑚礁鱼和远洋行动的大集会,经常可以在这里亲眼目睹。

  • Best known for eagle rays, grey reef sharks and good visibility.

Thilas & Giris

Thilas aka 'Giris' are submerged sea mountains/pinnacles – coming up from between 30-40m and 15-1m on the surface. Best dived with a medium current – with masses of fish being attracted to the front of the pinnacle thus enticing the predators such as giant trevally, dog tooth tuna, grey reef sharks to hunt. Good on the slack side of the current for macro life, such as Leaf fish, Nudi branch, Flatworms & Scorpion Fish. The best-known thilas are Maaya Thila (North Ari Atoll), and Hafusha Thila (North Ari Atoll).

该se are usually the easier dives.





Diving in the Maldives can be categorized into 3 general areas: Central, South & North

Central Maldives

As will be addressed below, the best way to explore the Maldives is by liveaboard, with approximately 90% of the dive boats operating the 'Central Maldives' route, often called the 'Best of the Maldives'. Central Maldives offers a great variety of dive sites & a healthy mix of channels, farus & thilas. Logistically it is also the easiest to explore since departures and arrivals happen via Male, without the need for internal flights. This route is also popular by the healthy variety of diving experiences that usually fit within it.

Southern Maldives

该South of the Maldives is a more rare trip with less boats running that trip. As a rule of thumb, the South is categorized by more channel diving versus thilas & farus, thus making it more challenging overall. The South is also characterized by a focus on sharks, due to the nature of the channel diving. Logistically, there is usually atleast one internal flight involved.

Part 3: Dive Shops, Airports & Logistics of Diving in Maldives

该best diving in the Maldives is undeniably done from aliveaboarddue to the wide disperse of dive sites that spread over an area of over 1000km long. Diving from a resort would limit you to the dive sites that are within a boat ride, usually limiting you to one, two or maximum 3 atolls.

逻辑上,最常见的切入点是马累机场,在那里你会得到您的运营商抓住了,小一点的船拍摄,经常被称为“Dhone”,要么在宿船船或度假村,在这里您将住。根据不同的度假胜地,你是住在或liveaboard你选择,你可能需要采取一个连接国内航班到更偏远的环礁之一,通常 - 拉穆,Huvadhoo,阿杜,咩,Huva或哈达卢。
