Maldives Diving Holidays

The sunny side of life

Tailor-made Maldives diving holidays

Maldives diving holidays are truly a divers paradise. Rich marine life teems around the coral reefs: sharks, mantas and rays make regular appearances as well as playful dolphins.  Thanks to its 26 atolls, the Maldivian diving is diverse, with channel dives attracting marine life from the deep to fast drift diving. Whale sharks and grey reef sharks are common sights as are manta rays, coming in to be cleaned.

Maldives diving holidays have accommodation choices that suit every taste and budget, so whether it’s a relaxed beach holiday, a resort based diving holiday, a liveaboard holiday or a happy mix of all, we can give you a tailor-made quote to suit you…and those warm waters.

What divers love about the Maldives

  • Paradise for pelagic lovers; sharks, manta rays and whale sharks
  • Fantastic location for both shore and liveaboard diving
  • Stunning house reefs on most islands
  • Recognised as one of the world’s most spectacular marine ecosystems

What divers say about diving holidays in the Maldives

“I thought the Maldives was all high end resorts and pretty fish until I went on one of the Emperor liveabords. Sharks, Mantas, and even a Hammerhead. Challenging but sooooo rewarding.” 

“Hooking on and floated in space as the sharks swan up and past. A lifetime high.”

“Definitely liveaboard. I think resorts can be limiting but on a boat, it’s always changing but then I was on my own and loved the fact I could just dive 3 times a day and relax without the hotel chat”. 


The best choice of liveaboards in one of the world’s most famous holiday dive destinations.  


From small and intimate to life enhancing luxury the Maldives has a resort to suit your style.
