Scuba Diving in The Maldives

Reader Reviews:

Dive Site: Maavaru Kandu

Location: Coco Palm Resort, Baa Atoll, Maldives

Description: Reef dive with lots of overhangs

Depth: We went to 20 metres (65') but it was deeper than this

Visibility: 25 metres (80 feet)

Rating: *****

This is a fantastic dive about 30 minutes from the Coco Palm Resort in the Baa Atoll. We did this dive as a drift dive as the current was quite strong, but it was possible to escape from the current in some of the overhangs. These were really beautiful with bright blue and yellow soft coral hanging down from the reef, completely unspoilt. We watched a stingray swim out of an overhang and move up the reef with undulating sides. There were also turtles, morays, pufferfish, lots of little fusiliers, jackfish and lionfish. A really colourful dive with lots of interest.
