7 Atolls Route – Deep South Up


Start / Maldives / 7 Atolls Route – Deep South Up

We propose a mixed diving cruise with the traditional diving routes in the central atolls of the Maldives and some wild and different diving spots on the way to Male from the South Hemisphere.

The highlight of 7 Atolls Route – Deep South Up

The route is unique and out of all the usual circuits. The quality of the dives is extraordinary. The amount of life (schools of jacks, schools of sharks and other pelagics, whale sharks at night, mantas, mola mola, sailfish …) everything is possible coming from the south.

This is a nice choice if you want to mix the traditional routes with something “wilder”.
