SCUBA DIVING IS SPECTACULAR IN THE MALDIVES WHOLE YEAR ROUND!
We don´t know any other place in the world where you can explore such a big variety of underwater life in a short time and enjoy world class scuba diving on this level .
The Maldives are 872km in length and the divesites are spread all over the atolls. There is of course no better way to get most of it than to cruise with a safari boat through the beautiful atolls and islands.
EcoProDivers goes with their PADI registered safari boats MV Eco Blue and Blueshark One to almost each atoll and divesite of the country depending on the season. During Northeast Monsoon the Central and South of the Maldives is the place to be and well known for stunning channel dives with hundreds of sharks. For this scuba dives you should be experienced with stronger currents.
There are more than 5000 reef Manta rays (Manta alfredi) identified by Manta Trust and around 350 whale sharks identified by Maldives Whale Shark Research Programme.
The chances are quiet high to encounter both, all over the year as there is no preferred season for this plankton feeders.
We do unforgattable dives all over the year like a night dive with Manta rays or with hundreds of Nurse sharks. We know also a place where Whale sharks show up in the night right at the back of our boat.
In the Deep South we have a dive site where big numbers of Tiger sharks live and the encounter is 99% guaranteed.
We visit local islands and give you an insight to the real life of Maldivians. Also we plan a BBQ night on a desert island to show you the beauty of a Maldivian island with it´s pristine beaches and lagoons.
A liveaboard trip is perfect for non-divers/snorkelers as well as our boats have relaxing areas with sunbeds and there is always a place to snorkel or swim.
Republic of the Maldives is a sovereign archipelagic nation positioned in the Indian Ocean. Notably the South Asian Island nation with a population of 300000 citizens has no counterpart in the entire world in terms of its unique geography and topography.
The Maldives comprises of 26 natural atolls consisting of dual island chains.
There are channels of various sizes between the atolls used for navigation.
The Maldives, located on top of a vast underwater mountain range have around 1190 islands and sandbanks. The pearl string like islands covers a land area of no less than 298 km2. All the islands are encircled by a lagoon blessed with crystal clear water. These islands are protected by a reef structure, housing one of the most exclusive and spectacular underwater life.
Male’ is the capital city of the Maldives and the seat of the executive, legislature and judicial branches of the government of the Maldives. Male’ is also the financial and commercial capital of the country. Accordingly major government offices, banks and businesses are based on Male’.
Male’ city is one of the most densely populated (>140000) cities of the world. Administratively neighbouring islands of Villingili and Hulhumale’ are considered as constituencies of Male’ City. Hulhumale’ is an artificially reclaimed island.
CLIMATE IN THE MALDIVES
Weather is changing everywhere in the world and you can not predict the weather in the next years in a special months. Again diving is spectacular all year round in the Maldives.
Maldives is located on the equator and therefore experiences monsoonal climate. There are two distinct seasons, Northeast Monsoon and Southwest Monsoon. Northeast monsoon extends from December/January to March/April. Southwest Monsoon from May to November. Since Maldives consists of small islands and are surrounded by sea, hot days are often tempered by cooling sea breezes and balmy evening temperatures.
There are rainy days all year round, this is the reason why the Maldivian islands have such a nice vegetation. Our recommodation is not to worry too much about the weather as you can have luck next year in January with one week no rain but it can be also the opposite. Same in August or October.
Please don´t check on weather apps as they say most of the time it will be stormy but this isn´t true. Also as we mentioned before the Maldives are quiet big so it can rain in the north and in the south it´s perfectly sunny.
Throughout the year, temperature remains almost same in the Maldives. However, daily temperature ranges from around 31 degrees Celsius in daytime to 23° Celsius in night time. The highest temperature ever recorded in the Maldives was 36.8°C, recorded on 19 May 1991 at Kadhdhoo Meteorological Office. Likewise, the minimum temperature ever recorded in the Maldives was 17.2°C, recorded at the National Meteorological Centre on 11th April 1978.
