Deep South

2023 January 28 to March 25

If you're an experienced, thrill-seeking diver looking for more challenging yet rewarding drives, venture with us to the deep southern atolls. Where the Maldives meets the equator, these unique parts of the Indian ocean provide exceptional diving, superb visibility, the most vibrant corals, and some of the best marine life encounters.

 

There are plenty of dive sights just waiting to be discovered, with corals virtually untouched by humans. This experience will be full of strong currents, deep caves, and unique coral formations. The temperate water and smaller reef fish attract larger pelagics, from reef to whale sharks. Additionally, the Southern atolls' manta cleaning stations are hotspots for close encounters. Perfect for divers that hold advanced certificates and at least 100 logged dives, this is a superb way to take your diving experiences to the next level.
