Diving Maldives. Scuba diving in Maldives, exploring renown dive sites or taking scuba diving lessons in crystal clear waters are experiences you will never forget.
The Maldives are hidden in the middle of the Indian Ocean. There you will discover an oasis of peace. A natural wonder of unimaginable beauty both above and underwater.
In the Maldives, time stands still. In today’s hectic world, the Maldives Islands have not lost their charm and will seduce divers and non divers alike.
Crystal clear, emerald green lagoons, pure white sandy beaches and as far as you can see; the deepest blue sky. For the scuba diving holiday of a lifetime, the Maldives are truly a diver’s paradise.
Diving Maldives, The Paradise on Earth, is a title gained by its spectacular underwater world, a world of its own, with a wide and unique variety of fish life.
From schools of rainbow coloured reef fishes, lion-fishes, barracudas, wale sharks, mantas, moray eels, lobsters in small caves to white tip sharks and grey reef sharks everything is just there to be discovered by divers.
In the Maldives, Euro-Divers and A.W.A.R.E. programs support the efforts of the Maldivian government to keep this beauty.
Endangered sharks and turtles are protected. ‘Protect the Maldives’ is in all our interest! Diving Maldives for divers and non-divers alike.
While diving Maldives, the South Ari Atoll is known for the many whale shark encounters. This area is actually 1 of 3 known locations world wide to have “local” whale sharks all year round. Our dive centers at LUX Maldives and Vilamendhoo assist by updating the international database for whale sharks. This way we try to find out where they are seen and what they eat, their swimming behaviors, etc. Our dive center at LUX Maldives is one of the main contributors in whale sharks information for our researchers. They are also leading the Maldivian Protection Area Committee which involves communications with many local islands and government.
