The Itinerary… The name of this fantastic itinerary says it all! The ‘Simply the Best’ itinerary takes you to a selection the best dives sites in the area to show you the best of the Maldives in 7 nights. Dive pristine reefs, explore caves and overhangs and experience thrilling shark dives in some of the best areas to see hammerheads and grey reef sharks.
Itinerary Highlights… Guraidhoo Kandu – South Male Since the eastern side of the channel is open ocean, large predatory fish can regularly be spotted here. This site is famous for sightings of sharks, schools of eagle rays and the occasional sail fish and hammerheads. The best condition to do the dive is when the current is flowing into the atoll. The dive begins on the outer reef following the current into the atoll. Most of the pelagic species can be observed on the eastern side, where the reef drops off into the deep ocean. At the end of the dive in the channel, along the reef you can find overhangs with plenty of soft coral growth and small fish. Fish Head – North Ari Fish Head also known as Shark Point or Mushimasmingili Thila, fits the classic definition of a thila – a large isolated flat top reef rising sharply from the inner atoll floor at 40 to 50m to around 10m from the surface. It is one of the best sites for seeing sharks. Featuring a series of caves and overhangs in between where you can see thousands of blue-line snapper against a backdrop of black coral bushes and large gorgonians. Fotteyo Kandul – Vaavu Atoll Considered by many as one of the best dive sites in the Maldives, the atoll offers pristine reefs on the eastern side and thrilling shark dives – look out for hammerheads and grey reef sharks. A more challenging dive site which is not really advised for novice divers. Reef hooks recommended. Maluku Kandu – Meemu Atolll The north east is peppered with submerged pinnacles covered predominantly in soft corals, whilst the west will see you surrounded by jacks and snappers. Keep an eye open for sharks and rays at 30m! All dive sites are subject to weather conditions and cannot be guaranteed.
