About the dives
You don't need a minimum number of dives but you should be comfortable with drift dives, as currents can be unpredictable and strong. If you are an Open Water Diver, some dives are below 18m therefore we recommend having advanced experience or taking your PADI Advanced Open Water course on board to maximize your enjoyment from the trip. Inexperienced and beginner divers may find some dives challenging and may be asked by the Cruise Director to skip dives that are not suitable for their diving experience. All diving is made from dhonis to give precise entry and exit points.-
Rasdhoo Atoll: Hammerhead Dive, Beautiful Reef with Pelagics.
North Ari Atoll: Grey Reef Sharks, Maaya Thila Night Dive, Multiple - Manta Cleaning Stations.

One of the best known dive sites is Maaya Thila; this pinnacle is approximately 30m in diameter and falls away to reveal sharks and fish a plenty.A night dive from sheltered moorings here is a must!
