Emperor Maldives has new exciting dive trips to sail to the southerly Maldives atolls and dive into the shark action in these out-of-the-way southern dive sites between Huvadhoo and Laamu.
From February to April, spend time away from the madding crowds and dive Foammulah and Huvadhoo on the lookout for the Indian Ocean's larger residents; tiger sharks, silver tips, grey reef sharks and whale sharks.
Guests can choose to travel either from Male to Huvadhoo to join their liveaboard or from Huvadhoo to Male. Expect to meet tiger and silver tip sharks around Foamulah. At Huvadhoo, one of the deepest lagoons in the Maldives, the currents are ideal for even more shark sightings including hopefully whale sharks and silkies, hammerheads, tiger and grey sharks spotted most of the time. There are swift channel dives with several kandus; Vilingilli, Nilandhoo, Mareehaa and Kondeey, as well as reef thila dives; Gazeera and Vaadhoo.
This itinerary suits experienced divers (100+ dives) looking for 'away from it all and different' diving with quite a focus on drift diving.
Liveaboards operating these routes are Emperor Virgo and Emperor Leo, both with fine accommodation and service as standard. Included is full board, free Nitrox, local transfers.
Non-divers are very welcome and get free snorkelling equipment + $50 voucher to spend on board.
The 7-night trip is £1978.80/€2328.00 per person sharing a standard twin berth cabin. 10-night trips are also available. Prices do not include international flights.
Emperor Maldives consistently offers value, variety, quality, service, professionalism, easy booking, handy local knowledge, flexibility and fast response to guest requests as well as popular purpose-built liveaboards.
