The Maldives is one of the world's best scuba diving destinations because of the spectacular coral reefs, clear warm waters, abundant scuba diving sites and the rich marine life.
All holiday resorts in the Maldives have scuba diving facilities and there are a number of live-aboard operators offering scuba diving cruise holidays that take guests to many dive sites all over the Maldives.
Diving in the Maldives is a very unique experience not only for experienced divers but also for beginners. Once you have discovered the underwater world here it will be difficult to find others of its kind.
The water is azure blue, warm, and the varieties of dive spots are stunning. You can enjoy drift dives in channels, as well as discovering wrecks, caves, overhangs, and exceptional beautiful reefs.
Renowned for the abundance of big aquatic animals such as Whale Sharks and Manta Rays together with the diversity of corals, sharks and fish of all sizes the Maldives sets itself apart from other dive locations around the world. Many scuba divers are keen to dive in the Maldives because of the presence of these whale sharks, manta rays, eagle rays, reef sharks, hammerhead sharks and moray eels, as well as many smaller fish and coral species.
Statistics show that 15% of the visitors to Maldives go specifically to scuba dive. Though others travel for other reasons - for example their honeymoon, they too decide to scuba dive while in Maldives.
