Diving in the Maldives is about exotic underwater flora and fauna. The underwater species variety and abundance has made the islands of Maldives an amazing diving spot. Today, it boasts some of the most beautiful coral reefs inhabited by a wide range of aquatic life, there really is another whole world ‘under the sea’.
The isolation of the Maldives from other landmasses makes it a great place of a variety of marine species to breed. Besides, the seasonal oceanic currents passing through the country have created new channels from the ocean to the different atolls. The channels known as Dhivehi or Kandu, support a highly rich marine ecosystem.
When you Scuba dive in Maldives you can see fascinating fish species like Tuna, Jacks, Butterfly fish, Wahoo, Dogtooth Tuna, Trevally’s, and rare species such as the giant Napoleon Wrasse.
