99% of the island nation of the Maldives consists of water and while the lure of its pristine beaches may be what brings most tourists to the Maldives, it is not the only attraction that can take your breath away. While the Maldives is known as a divers paradise because of the rich variety of sea-life in and around its reefs, this may not benefit visitors that are not divers. However the Whale Submarine, Submarine tour will remedy this as there are no skills required to witness one of nature’s most majestic dive sites.
When looking for accommodation in the Maldives, villas are a viable option for budgets of all types. Hotels such as Adaaran Hudhuranfushi have a number of luxurious ocean and beach villas that won’t break the bank. While at your resort, you may book your submarine tour at the reception desk, online or even at the ticketing office in Male. The submarine tours are conducted every 90 minutes, with the first tour starting at 9am, and ending with the night dive at 8pm. The entire tour, including the waiting time before the dive and after, will take approximately 3 hours.
The submarine tour begins with the state-of-the-art submarine diving up to 25 feet beneath the surface where a number of reef fish and coral can be seen. After this the submarine dives to 40 meters below the surface, stopping near a big cave which has a number of species living inside. Depending on a number of factors such as the current and weather, the tour may take you through an ancient shipwreck or even a shark feeding area. The powerful exterior lights of the submarine light up the sea floor during the night dive, where guests can see sleeping manta rays and even sharks.
