DIVING FOR CERTIFIED DIVERS
THE ORIENTATION DIVE
An orientation dive in the lagoon is necessary in order to refresh your basic
dive skills, your equipment and to acclimatise yourself to the conditions in the
Maldives with an instructor on hand to assist you if you so wish.
If the orientation dive is not sufficient to refresh your dive skills and to renew
your confidence, a dedicated one dive program is available to review the Open
Water skills with an instructor.
A BOAT DIVE
The dive center conducts two boat dives a day where we travel to dive sites
within 20 – 45 minutes from the resort. The proximity to the resort allows for
sufficient time to set up the equipment and to have a mini briefing about the
site. All sites have been carefully selected to ensure visibility and the abundance
and variety of the marine life. The dive center will be happy to plan trips to any
other suggested dive sites depending on the location.
A DIVE PACKAGE
Five dives is considered as a dive package.
Night diving is becoming increasingly popular as it allows for a different
experience. Discover the delightful nocturnal creatures or observe the marine
life whilst they are asleep.
