diving at six senses laamu hotel maldives

Scuba Diving in the Maldives

The Maldives are world famous for the superb diving around the islands.  It’s a diver’s paradise!
Migratory ocean species such as mantas, whale sharks, dolphins and sea eagles all pass by along with a diverse array of fish including stingrays, sea cucumbers, lionfish, snappers and eels.

With a number of diving sites to choose from, divers won’t get bored.  Visibility is generally fantastic, usually between 20 and 25 metres, with a slow to moderate current – perfect diving conditions.

There are table corals as large as 3 feet in diameter that are easily visible, surrounded by hundreds of fish.  Many other beautiful coral types and colorful fish glide languidly along the sea bed.

This really is heaven for divers.  All our featured resorts have excellent diving facilities, so wherever you choose to go you can be sure of some fabulous dives.
