Explore the best dive sites of the Maldives
If you are looking for an extreme diving adventure, the Maldives is the place. From soaring manta rays, massive whale sharks, and ripping current dives, the Maldives has it all. What was once an “off the beaten path“ vacation spot has now become one of the world’s best diving destinations. Coral covered “thilas“ (small underwater islands) are scattered throughout the Maldives’ gin-clear, warm waters. The richness and variety of species encountered among the hundreds of islands in this small nation are unmatched. The best way to enjoy diving the Maldives is aboard one of the many liveaboard dive boats that go out for one to two weeks at a time, taking divers to some of the most remote, untouched dive sites on the planet. Whether you are looking for thrilling, fast-past, current-ripping underwater expeditions, or shallow, lengthy, relaxing dives, the Maldives is waiting for you.
Discover the world’s most fascinating aquatic life
Aquatic life under our oceans, lakes, rivers, and streams is amazing! From microscopic zooplankton to the largest animal on earth, the blue whale, underwater life comes in all possible shapes and sizes. With 71% of the earth being covered with water, it is no wonder we are so fascinated with what lies beneath the surface. In fact, scientists estimate that there are nearly 1 million different species of aquatic animals. Freshwater ecosystems are home mainly to fish, invertebrates, and reptiles, whereas the ocean contains a wide array of marine life including fish, mollusks, crustaceans, reptiles, sharks, and marine mammals like whales, dolphins, seals, and manatees.
