Itinerary Highlights

  • Less crowded dive sites with plenty of action.
  • Foammulah; Tiger sharks, oceanic manta and thresher sharks. Oceanic Island with incredible visibility.
  • Huvadhoo; Whale sharks at night, tiger sharks, silver tips, grey reef sharks and many, many more.
  • Addu Atoll; WWII wreck HMS British Loyalty and majestic manta cleaning stations.
  • Laamu Atoll: Beautiful fish filled channels with great shark encounters.
  • This itinerary has a lot of drift diving, so it is best suited to more advanced divers.

February and March are the best times to dive the southerly Maldivian atolls and experience the shark action in these out-of-the-way dive sites between Huvadhoo and Addu (Seenu) Atolls. Spend a week away from the madding crowds and dive Fuvahmulah and Huvadhoo on the lookout for the Indian Ocean’s larger residents; tiger sharks, silver tips, grey reef sharks, whale sharks and many, many more.

From Male we take you to Huvadhoo (Koodoo) or Addu (Gan) by domestic flight to join your liveaboard, and then it is off on our adventure. Huvadhu, one of the deepest lagoons in the Maldives, the currents and channels are ideal for even more shark sightings including, hopefully, whale sharks and silkies, hammerheads and grey sharks spotted most of the time. You will dive many of the world class channels (kandus) here including; Vilingilli, Koodoo, Nilandhoo and Mareehaa. In Fuvahmulah you can expect to meet tiger, silky, silver tip and thresher sharks on the south plateaux. (note; we don’t offer the Tiger Zoo shark feeding dive).  Addu Atoll hosts the WWII wreck, HMS British Loyalty, as well as popular majestic Manta Cleaning station Maa Kandu along with a more relaxing drift dive at Demon corner to either start or end the trip with too.

Please note: At Emperor, we believe in providing as authentic an experience with nature as possible. We do not believe it is appropriate to chum/bait for, nor feed, sharks and therefore will not dive or promote the experience known as “Tiger Zoo” in Fuvahmulah Atoll. We dive Fuvahmulah and regularly encounter Tiger Sharks there, as well as at other spots on our itineraries, and we believe these offer a far more natural experience.

On the last diving day, 1 dive is available in the morning whilst observing the rule of no diving within 24 hours of reaching altitude. We return to port at approximately 1pm and moor here overnight.
