You must include scuba diving in your Maldives Package. Maldives is a popular destination for scuba diving. It is a wonderful place to scuba dive due to its clear water and robust marine life. You don’t have to be a pro at scuba diving. After learning the basics, you can take a discovery dive. You will be able to dive 20-30 feet below the surface. Divers who are experienced should bring their logbook and dive certificate. Deep in the water you will see fish such as parrotfish and clownfish. Scuba diving classes are available in Maafushi and Villingili as well as a few other places in Male.


You can also choose snorkelling if you don’t want to go scuba diving. You would only be able to swim on the surface of water using a snorkel or breathing tube in snorkelling. Scuba diving is more difficult. Snorkelling, however, gives you the same view of the reefs and marine life as scuba diving. You can snorkel right at the beach, but some tour operators will take you deeper into the water to give you a closer look at the reef, fish, and turtles. Hanifaru Bay is the best spot to snorkel in Maldives.
