Maldives - where diving dreams come true! Famous for its beauty both above and under water.

Before you can experience such underwater beauty, all visitors usually need to visit Male, capital of Maldives. This is where you sleep for a night when your plane arrives in the middle of the night, board your dive safari boat or ferry the next morning. And the place to seek medical attention should you need any which my friend and I experienced firsthand when my friend fell ill at the end of our dive trip.

And that's about it really.

Stunning sunsets

Enjoy a free sunset anywhere in the Maldives even in Male. Just make sure you're not blocked by any tall building :-)

Too many dive sites to choose from

When you go on a dive safari boat, expect to do many, many dives. So pump up your energy and go for it!
