Sailing Itinerary: The Best of the Maldives (7 nights)

This is the ideal itinerary for any first time visitor to the Maldives. It does just what it says on the tin – you dive the best and most famous dive sites of the Maldives in a single week of uplifting liveaboard diving across Male and Ari atolls. This is a dive holiday that hits all the seasonal hot spots of North Male, South Male and Ari Atoll. Dive the many channels, drifts and pinnacles, encountering the manta, whale sharks and reef residents as you go. The exact order of things is left deliberately flexible to ensure that, no matter what time of year your holiday to the Maldives, you enjoy the best diving and marine life.

The itinerary aims to mix up big fish, manta and shark dives with scenic reef dives, hunting out the smallest reef fish, morays and critters that are so abundant. Cleaning stations allow you to get up close and personal with massive Maldivian manta. Maaya Thila, a pinnacle about 30m in diameter, descends to reveal sharks and fish a-plenty. Along the route, we look out for the chance to snorkel with whale sharks. Night diving here is also hard to beat.
