SCUBA DIVING IN MALDIVES: Dive the Jewel of the Indian Ocean. Divers’ Reviews
The Maldives, the jewel of the Indian Ocean, is a country made up of 1200 coral islands. The quality of resorts in the Maldives is first class, however, if you are visiting the Maldives only for scuba diving, a liveaboard will be a good option since it allows you to get to farther sites. The naturally formed ring-like atolls are about 450 mi. south-west of Sri Lanka, which translates into abundant marine life; sharks (including the whale shark present all year long) and rays specially. Traditionally, cowries’ shells and dried tuna were traded but today tourism is the main industry.
