Is the best of Maldives itinerary extended with some southern atolls. With some luck you will be even able to spot a whale shark .
Speedy drift dives, mantas, lots of sharks, including Whale Sharks, Silkies, Hammerheads, Silvertips, Tiger Sharks and Grey Reef Sharks and dive several atolls.
Many of these islands are yet to be fully dived and explored, further south the fewer people.
The big attraction in the Maldives are the schools of fish that patrol the reefs in colorful packs: Humpback and Black and White Snappers, Trevally Jacks, Barracuda, Batfish, Unicornfish, Yellowback Fusiliers and Harlequin Sweetlips almost comical in design.
Most intriguing are the cleaning stations, Groupers, Snappers, Surgeonfish, Eels, Parrotfish, even Giant Napoleon Wrasse park casually in corners, while armies of wrasse, shrimp and other assorted cleaners pick at debris in their open gills and cavernous mouths.
Embark/Disembark: Guests will fly in and out of Malé, Velana International Airport (MLE) and will be met on the start date of the charter from 11 am - 5 pm and transferred by speedboat to the Maldives Aggressor II.
