MALDIVES Central Atolls Classical route

Central Atolls Classical route is our weekly usual route and we do almost all year long from August to January and April and May. This is the best well-known route in Maldives but at the same time the one that offers best and most varied dives. Thanks to that, we know every detail, atoll, passage, thilas and where and when it is convenient to approach every dive zone. It is a 7-night route including 6-dive days on board with embarkation and disembarkation at Male Airport (18 dives with 2-night dives).

Some dives will be done amongst the channels that are between the islands and there can be strong currents. We will do some dives to more than 20 meters. So, we recommend to be advanced or be an experienced diver. It is recommended to dive with Nitrox for which it will be compulsory to be Nitrox certified diver. Diving computer, buoy and torch for night dives are compulsory to carry with you.

Desert islands and typical fishermen villages are also visited to discover and enjoy a bit more of the country and if the weather allows doing so we will even dine on a desert beach.
Although if you are looking for relax, you can enjoy the solarium and 2 Jacuzzis on board, kayak, Paddle SUP…
All this will make this cruise an excellent and unforgettable Great Dive Travel.

The habitual itinerary goes by North and South Male Atolls, Vaavu and Ari.

The aim is to find pelagic, grey sharks, white sharks, black-tip sharks, and in some occasions hammerheads and dolphins, eagle rays and shoals of colorful fishes, morays, tuna fish, gild-head breams, groupers and turtles.
Drifting dive in water passages and canals, thilas (submerged coral “seamounts”), cleaning stations where big mantas gather together to deworm themselves, will search for the whale shark (and if we are lucky will snorkel and even dive with the biggest fish). We will dive into a full-of-life wreck.
Besides, there will be two spectacular night dives in the world: one with mantas and the other with dozens of nurse sharks. Both of them very closed to the divers.
