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 the South Hemisphere.
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 shark at night, mantas, mola mola, sailfish …) everything is possible going to the south.
This is a nice choice if you want to mix the traditional routes with something “wilder”.
