On the classic Azalea seven nights trip, it is highly likely that you will spot anything on your bucket list: big majestic pelagics like whale sharks, hammerheads or the individuals from the world’s largest population of reef manta ray! A shark spotting night dive is also on the schedule. The boat’s main route covers the best of Maldives by visiting the most famous atolls: Nort Male, South Male, Felidhe and Ari.
Maldives has a very special underwater landscape. The country has 26 gorgeous atolls - ring-shaped coral reefs that end up encircling relatively shallow lagoons. These are usually connected to the open ocean through different points through which the water enters and exits, originating channels (called “kandu” locally) with currents rich in nutrients that feed a vast range of fish, corals, sponges, gorgonians and other marine species. Based on the reefs’ geographical formation, diving activity in the Maldives can be carried out in either these channels, in the “thilas” or “giris” (underwater rock pinnacles that develop from 30-40 metres to nearly up the surface) or in the “faru” (the edge of the atolls). Learn more about the coral reef system of the Maldives.
If you would like to learn more, the page Diving in the Maldives (Central region) will give you a good understanding about diving in this region.
