The Maldives extends over a length of 871 km from South to North and include 26 atolls. This explains why life and the structures under water are so diverse.
Central Atolls, The classic atolls - Interesting and very varied. In this tour, you will experience a rich mixture of everything that you would expect from the Maldives. Most ships travel this 7-day route, therefore, some Tauchsplätze are well frequented. Thanks to the variety and availability of these atolls, they will be hardly alone, they get to see a lot in a few days of diving.
Northern Atolls, Beautifully structured, partly very rich in fish, and colorful reefs. The further north you go the more colorful soft corals can be seen. Little boats operate there, we're often alone. We know some spectacular sites of big fish: manta rays and guitar sharks, zebra sharks, nurse sharks, grey reef sharks, stingrays, big eye trevallies, Batfish, pennant fish schools and coloured snails are often to see when compared to the southern atolls. In addition, we meet regularly on whales and dolphins.
Southern Atolls, Many channels. Many hard corals. Big fish-rich and beautiful canals. Opportunities for numerous shark observations: whale sharks, grey reef sharks, white tip reef sharks, hammerhead sharks, zebra sharks, silkies, black tip reef sharks. Rare Tiger sharks, thresher sharks. Big fish such as Marlin, tuna, barracudas, groupers, but dolphins, Swarm fishes.
