The best time to enjoy Maldives scuba diving holidays is between December and March, when the weather is at its driest and the visibility at its best. Diving holidays February is probably the best month of all to enjoy Maldives diving trips, but since most of us don’t have the luxury to enjoy holidays in the month of February, Christmas diving holidays are a great idea and you might even see Santa Claus diving!

To give you an idea of the diving prices, you should expect to pay around $180-250 per person per day, which will give you a diving holiday that includes all diving, meals and some excursions.

Diving Holidays

As well as giving you access to some great scuba diving Maldives, Liveaboard diving modern cruises are a great way to meet new people, and if you’re looking for a single scuba diving holidays, liveaboard diving trips are a great idea. Since you will be on a boat with a large group of other divers, a liveaboard presents a great idea for diving holidays for single travellers. In fact, as far as single diving holidays are concerned, there’s really no better option than a liveaboard diving holiday. Many times, people will go on all inclusive diving holidays in the Maldives without planning to be on a singles scuba diving holidays and because they are surrounded by people with similar interests, they meet a new dive buddy with whom they can then enjoy another scuba diving holiday.

Many divers will be keen to know the planned route for their Maledives diving trip. The exact route for your trip won’t be decided until everyone is on board, because the Maldives diving sites that you will visit depend on the weather conditions, the length of your safari and also the ability and experience levels of all divers on board. Most diving holidays Maldives last between 5 and 14 nights and typically visit two Maldives diving site each day. At the daily briefing, you will see a Maldives diving map
That shows the dive sites you will be visiting that day and tells you what to expect from each site. There are plenty of amazing sites for scuba diving in Maldives, these include Rasdhoo Kandu diving, among many others. At these dive sites, there will be opportunities for diving with manta rays and for enjoying sharks diving holidays. While scuba diving in the Maldives, if you choose to go liveaboard diving, which is the best diving in Maldives, you should know in advance that all dives are taken from a diving dhoni, which is a secondary boat that travels along with the diving liveaboard Maldives. All diving equipment is transported on the dhoni, and you simply travel from the liveaboard to the dive site each day on the dhoni. As these boats are far smaller than the liveaboards, they allow you to get much closer to the dive sites.

When looking to book your trip scuba diving the Maldives, there are plenty of resources. A quick search online will reveal many scuba diving blogs. A good scuba diving blog will be filled with useful information about diving prices in Maldives, travel diving in different destinations around the world and the best diving holidays. You will also find a variety of diving blog that have news about diving in general, the qualifications you need, places where you can buy diving kit and more. There is even a selection of diving screensaver available online. There is one particularly attractive Maldives diving screensaver which has gorgeous photos of underwater scenes in the Maldives.

If you are a really keen scuba diver, you might even have your own scuba diving websites, in which case you might think about joining scuba diving affiliate programs so you can make money from sending your diving traffic around the web. Make sure you take lots of Maldives diving photos, as these are by far the best way to get people interested in diving holidays in Maldives.

If you’re concerned about the cost of scuba diving in Maldives, you don’t need to worry. While it is true that Maldives diving prices can be very high, it is also possible to get a great deal on a diving safari Maldives. The most surefire way of getting cheap scuba diving holidays is to book last minute diving holidays. All of the Maldives diving liveaboards have a certain capacity they need to fill, so if the time comes for the safari to set sail, and the boat is not full, the operators would rather fill the boat with reduced-price passengers than sail a half empty boat, meaning that last minute diving holidays are available. Without getting a special deal on a Maldives diving safari, you will find that Maldives scuba diving prices vary wildly, depending on the length of the safari and the type of ship that you choose to dive from. For the cheapest scuba diving, you should book on one of the more basic liveaboards, which costs about US$180 per person per night, including all Maldives, diving and meals. If you are looking for a more luxurious scuba diving holidays Maldives, you should be aware that luxury liveaboard diving trips cost over US$200 per person per day, but conditions will be far more comfortable and elegant.
