Local diving in Maldives in October/November?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I've looked into Maldives now (or Burma/Mayanmar, but I'll do a separate thread for that) for diving, where a few of us will all go diving together.


I've been to the Maldives twice, but I didn't do any diving until the second go, and that was pretty impressive!


We're looking for:

  • Reasonable accommodation/diving costs
  • Big pelagics if possible (hammers, mantas, whalesharks? ;) )
  • Night diving
  • Local island diving, resorts will push the price up too much for my friends
  • Any macro would be awesome but the focus (pun intended) is wide angle :)

So far I've found:

  • Fulidhoo - seems to be the best choice so far? Unfortunately perhaps not a hotspot for big pelagics, but good night diving with loads of sharks
  • Ukulhas - we may be a bit too early for this, seems December 'tis the season.
  • Maafushi - I can't find much info about this unfortunately, and the videos I've seen have been fairly lacklustre.

I know it's a typical list for a 'low budget' Maldives holiday, but if anyone can help out that would be greatly appreciated.
