Diving in the Maldives is an incredible experience as it accounts for 5% of the world’s coral reefs.
The reefs are home to unique marine life and visibility is great all year round.
The Southern Atolls is where you can spot some of the best coral, sharks and barracudas.
Banana Reef is popular for colourful fish and Manta Point is for lovers of manta rays.
Fishing is extremely popular in the Maldives because of the diverse amount of fish in the area.
There are five types of fishing: shore, jigging and popping, bottom, night and big game fishing.
Many resorts protect the reef and don’t allow fishing though some will have boat tours to take you out to fishing spots farther away. The best fishing is done with the locals.
Immerse yourself among the diverse marine life in the Maldives on a snorkelling tour.
Spot some of the area's well-known critters including reef sharks, turtles, stingrays, eagle rays, stunning coral and dolphins.
