Vaadhoo Kuda Kandu is where to keep a look out for tiger sharks, the unspolied reefs here are home to an amazing array of fish life and the colourful corals are a real delight.
Maarehaa Kandu shark sightings are what attract divers to this narrow channel. Grey reef and white tips can be seen in large numbers and eagle rays cruise by too. It is often we will make 2 dives in this kandu as the marine life is simply fantastic.
Kurehdhoo Island is small but offers the opportunity for 2 awesome diving experiences. Colourful angel fish, groupers, butterfly fish, banner fish and trigger fish and all out in huge numbers. Large pelagics can also be seen within the kandu but its hard to leave the reef wall - its too stunning!
Vilingili Reef offers a fantastic night dive experience. Octopus, devil fish, tiny crustaceans and numerous molluscs can all be found over the sand and clinging to corals.
The Maldives has two very distinct seasons. The “dry season” runs from January through to March, also known as the Northeast Monsoon. The “wet season” is from mid-May until November, and known as the Southwest Monsoon. Throughout the year the climate remains almost constant with average temperatures of 30°C (86°F), giving sunny days and light winds in the evenings. Thunderstorms can occur during the southwest monsoon and you will experience cloudy days – however the rain can be a relief from the high temperatures.Water temperatures are broadly similar throughout the region; and rarely vary beyond 27-30°C (81- 86°F). Most guests find that a 3mm shorty and possibly a rash vest is suitable. However, for guests who feel the cold easily, especially with repeated diving, then we recommend to bring your own 5mm. In short bring what you feel most comfortable in.
