The Maldives is considered by some to be the manta ray heaven, so if your crazy over mantas this is your destination. The Maldives is a destination that offers a great trip for divers and non-divers alike. It is a baby in the tourism scene as tourism was only introduced in 1972.
We are not sure exactly what they were thinking in keeping such a beautiful place as a secret from the world for so long. The Maldives is in the Indian Ocean, situated close to India and Sri Lanka.
A scuba diver diving in the Maldives for the first time was in shock from the beauty of the coral reefs that he almost dropped his regulator. The jaw dropping coral reefs, rich marine life, kaleidoscope of fish, thrills of caves, reef slopes and fantastic wrecks make the Maldives one of the most popular diving destinations in the world boasting hundreds of dive points all over the country. You will be mind blown by the variety of corals and the sight of friendly sharks and manta rays. Except for a few days, visibility is good throughout the year making diving a phenomenal experience for underwater photographers.
There are lot of scuba diving options in the Maldives from liveaboards to resorts. Liveaboards in the Maldives operate very differently from any other place in the world. The difference is that your liveaboard itself is not your scuba diving vessel. There is another boat that accompanies the liveaboard that is your diving vessel. This makes liveaboards in the Maldives very luxurious as even non-divers are attracted to stay on them.
