Paradise on earth is partial without its underwater realm, which makes the Maldives one of the most appealing dive destinations in the world. Warm and fascinating and sharing rich marine life with coral reefs teeming with activity, visited by schools of fish and playful dolphins.
With 26 atolls consisting of outer and inner reefs, the Maldives is one of the most diverse scuba diving destinations in the world. Amazing channel dives draw animals from the deep, which will leave you spellbound. Mountainous pinnacles (thila) rise from 35m and taper to 8m, which make them ideal for those slower, more relaxing dives.
The average water temperature is 27C (80F) and current can be strong at about 1.5 knots, which is ideal for shark and manta ray encounters. Fasten your seatbelts and glide into the blue for the most awe-inspiring experience of your life.
Cruising on MV Orion is the ideal way to discover the magic that surrounds the Maldives.
