Start / Maldives / South Maldives Diving “South Hemisphere Route”

We propose you a diving cruise off the traditional diving routes in the Maldives.

The highlight of south Maldives diving

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, tiger shark, mola mola, sailfish …), the quality and exuberance of the reefs, thilas with corals like the Maldives 25 years ago turn the route into the best of Maldives!

GAAFU ALIFU & GAAFU DHAALU:Doing the “Southern Hemisphere” route, you will have the opptunity to go more in depth into one of the most beautiful atolls of the Maldives, Gaafu Alifu and Gaafu Dhaalu, visiting all its marvelous places. The famous Vilingili and Kooddoo channels of are only a part of the many attractions that this huge atoll has to offer. We also find densely coral populated thilas like Bodu Thila, labyrintic Kondey coral garden, blue dives next to the reef like Gemmanafushi Beru where we go out to find hammerhead and silky sharks and more.

We will also have the chance to do nighttime activities like snorkeling with whale shark, mantas, dolphins, and nurse sharks.

During the week, we will find quiet island or sandbank where we will enjoy a barbeque and spend time with activities such as paddleboarding, kayaking and snorkeling. We can enjoy a sunset on the sandbank in the evenings ith music and drinks, or just walk around one of the local islands.

ADDU: Famous for its manta dives at Maa Kandu cleaning station where we can enjoy the presence of these majestic creatures. Addu is also home to the largest wreck in the Maldives, The Bristish Loyalty, 150 meters! But not onl that, in this atoll we also find incredible blue walls where we have the chance to find tiger, silvertip and grey reef sharks.

This island south of the equators offers exciting dives such us the southern plateau, with strong currents, we will have the chance to see from hammerhead sharks to thresher and tiger sharks, or the famous Tiger Zoo or Tiger Wall where we will have the opportunity to see tiger sharks up close, with the possibility to choose the “attracting” dives (hiding waste from the fish processing plant under the rocks).
