Advantages Exciting diving-Guaranteed!!!
The most fantastic and exhilirating experiences I have ever encountered. Sharks, mantas, dolphins, stingrays, every fish under the sun- beautiful coral reefs....I stayed at the Kuredu Island in the Lhaviyani Atoll.
The dive centre is:Kuredu ProDivers *****They are certified under PADI- which is one of the leading Diving associations in the world. There are PADI centres literally everywhere(e.g. i did my PADI diving certificate in Thailand- but with it you are allowed to dive anywhere in the world.)
You need to have a certificate to dive, if not you are always able to test the waters ;-) to see if diving is for you- some may find it difficult-especially if you are frightened of enclosed spaces.If you decide to do a certificate, bear in mind that your holiday may not be long enough. It may take 5 days for the completion of the certificate and it is not recommended to dive within 48hours of flying- and the reverse.
The Kuredu Dive centre is excellent for experienced divers and those with a certificate. Some instructors are also much better than others. Make sure you are assigned someone who speaks your language!I booked a package of 10 dives from the UK- a mistake: i should have waited until I was there- for 2 reasons:
word of warning:
the cost of using the boats (approx.$10 each dive)
is not included in the price of diving
For beginners I thoroughly recommend going snorkelling first of all, to get a feeling for the ocean and what you are going to see.
Definitely try before you buy! Any reputable Diving School will gladly offer to give you a free go (generally in a swimming pool)!
The visibility is excellant. Probably the best you can get: to about 30 metres.
I saw every fish and creature from A-Z, including nurse sharks (7-8 feet), turtles, manta rays, plenty of sting rays, and beautiful coral reefs, which were inhabited by uncountable shoals of fish.
For more experienced divers there was also the opportunity to go wreck diving- i did not do this, as i prefer reefs.*** Choice ***
Every day lots of boats go out, and never to the same reef twice, so you always get a new experience.
There is also the opportunity to do night dives- however you need to rent extra equipment (such as torches).
