On this site, you can find information about the best time to dive in the Maldives, the different sorts of holiday you can book, the variety of courses that are on offer, safety aspects whilst scuba diving and advice on the equipment you require when diving.

All the guesthouses, resorts, local dive centres and liveaboards you will find on the Scuba Diving Maldives website are highly, professional, service providers in the Maldivian scuba diving industry.

You can also find information and tips about scuba diving in the many Atolls which make up the Maldives.

 Tourism Maldives


maldivestourism 250Tourism started in the Maldives in 1972 with the opening up of 60 tourist beds in two resort islands. As there was no International Airport, tourists arrived from Sri-Lanka on small-chartered aircrafts and stayed in the Maldives as an extension of Sri Lankan holiday package.

With the development of the Airport in 1982, the Maldivian tourist product was detached from the Sri Lankan holiday package, and with diving, lagoons, sandy beaches and the tropical climate as the major attractions, it became a new product: A NEW TOURIST DESTINATION WAS BORN.

A tourist destination also for scuba divers and since then, the Maldives has become one of the most favourite diving destinations in the world and still is. Scuba diving in the Maldives is so popular because of the combination of an amazingly beautiful environment, tropical palm islands, white sandy beaches with the indescribable turquoise colour of the lagoons in combination with excellent scuba diving.

The Maldives is popular among scuba divers for big fish, such as Manta rays, Eagle rays and the different species of sharks as Whale Sharks, Tiger Sharks and Gray Reef Sharks.

With more than 20 atolls and 1,000 Islands, from north to south (almost 1,000km), 140 Resorts, 600 guesthouses and 130 liveaboards, the Maldives is a dive destination with many choices.
