Diving in the Maldives

Maldives is renown for being one of the top diving destinations in Asia, and quite possibly the world. Its islands and surrounding waters are blessed with white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, teaming with an abundance of marine life, in particular, large pelagics like manta rays, tunas, giant trevallies and a variety of sharks, including whalesharks.

 

Most dive sites in the Maldives have medium to strong currents. The Indian Monsoon Current through the channels between the islands, bringing along with it rich nutrients to feed the abundant marine and coral life living in its waters.

 

Dive Season

It is possible to dive in the Maldives all year round, however, most liveaboard operators only run regular trips between November to May. The best months for diving are thought to be between January to April, with the best weather, visibility and overall diving conditions. 

 

It is important to note that generally speaking, lower visibility could be caused by an abundance of plankton in the water, which could also increase chances of whaleshark and manta ray sightings.

Maldives lives up to its name for being a tropical resort location all year round and has a tropical-monsoon climate. The annual average daily surface temperature ranges from 25°C (77°F) to 31°C (88°F), with March typically being the hottest month and  January the coldest month.
