Made a friend in Maldives!

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

On a recent liveaboard (Emperor Explorer) in Maldives, trip titled "best of Maldives" was nothing extraordinary for the first few days.. strong currents, moderate viz, etc. But then two days changed it all. On one day this juvenile whale shark came up to our boat and stuck around with us for over four hours.. and on the day after, we had a wonderful couple of dives with the resident nurse sharks in Alimatha. Here are a couple of pictures (downsized). A more detailed trip report with larger images is on my weblog.

Cheers,

Ajay

Love the nurse sharks! I also had a great dive with them there.

I found the Maldives extraordinarily frustrating while I was there - lots of blue water dives with not much going on. Certainly it was clear that the liveaboard staff were expecting many, many more sharks than we were seeing. But when I got home and reviewed the results I had a much great number of keepers than usual. So the encounters were fruitful even if they were short and spread out between a lot of hanging around and waiting for animals to show up!
