For divers seeking a shore-based Maldives diving holiday, a wide variety of stunning resorts are sure to meet your diving and relaxation needs.
The Maldives is made up of a stunning group of atolls that play host to an underwater paradise brimming with marine wildlife. Located south west of Sri Lanka in the warm, tropical waters of the Indian Ocean, the Maldives include over 1200 tiny, low-lying coral islands surrounded by white sand. The abundance of marine life in the Maldives can be attributed to the ideal growing conditions the waters provide for coral reef. These coral reefs are home to more than 700 species of fish, many of which are sadly endangered. In the lagoons you can find whale sharks, turtles, octopus, manta rays and the giant Napoleon wrasse to name just a few.
The Maldives is tropical all year round and water temperatures range from 27°C to 29°C. There is no minimum number of dives required by local law and all diving is done from 'dhonis' or tenders to ensure accurate entry and exits points.
Divers have the opportunity to see a huge range of beautiful hard and soft corals as well as the potential to dive with manta rays, whale sharks, sharks, turtles, barracudas, jacks and tuna. Experience the first class diving in this unique underwater world onboard our very own fleet vessels: the stunning and spacious M/Y blue Voyager and the traditional and cozy M/V Sea Spirit. You may never want to leave!

Land based attractions...
Given that all but 0.3% of land in the Maldives is submerged even the majority of land based activities involve the ocean!
All resorts in the Maldives offer a range of activities other than diving, including; canoeing, windsurfing, catamaran sailing, tennis, beach volleyball, island hopping and snorkeling safaris.
In the evening the majority of resorts provide entertainment such as live music, traditional cultural variety shows and beach games.
Alternatively, we strongly suggest exploring Sri Lanka if you desire land based attractions after your liveaboard. We can personally recommend excellent accommodation and itineraries, whether your interests range from elephants to Buddhist temples.
