So, scuba diving in the Maldives, what’s it really like? Especially, amidst the rumors of global warming and coral bleaching? Well, we just got back on Aug 31, and dove up to 30 dives in the regions of Central MaIe (standard liveaboard itinerary), and up in the Baa Atoll (4 additional nights land-based). The diving was a solid 8-9 with a few rough patches, but the Thilas were covered with some of the prettiest coral I’ve seen, and there were lots of sharks and lots of mantas, and we saw a whale shark.
One of the coolest things that happened while we were on our dive boat at Cross Chartering – the sky was full of color and it just looked like it would show us it’s exotic side, so many of us were watching. It didn’t disappoint us and 5-6 of us shouted with excitement at our first Green Flash Sunset.
Our land-based resort was fully 5 stars and was not what we originally contracted for, but everyone was over the top excited for having the dive adventure of a lifetime. We’ll do it again in two years. Come and join us.
