Introducing Maldives

One of the most famous diving destinations on Earth, the Maldives are known for their remote nature, one-of-a-kind diving experience, and beautiful weather. 1,192 small coral islands and many nearly untouched habitats make for a view that every diver strives for. When clear, as it usually is, divers can spot a wide array of wildlife.

Health and Safety

The Maldives are a very safe and clean place to travel. Due to a small drug problem, petty crime is around but rare. Like anywhere, keep your wits about you and you’ll be fine, but it’s still safer than most Western locations.

Be Aware

Fairly strict religious codes are adhered to, so while you’ll be viewed as an outsider and exempt from most practices, make sure to be respectful and not stand out too much. Alcohol will likely be confiscated at the airport.

Costs

To gauge, airport officials are instructed to make sure you have at least $100USD per day for your trip. A single dive will run you $70-$100USD.
