This itinerary gives you 12 days on board. You will adventure from Huvadhoo Atoll, across the Equator to the isolated atoll of Fuvahmulah (also known as Foammulah) and to the southern-most atoll of Addu. A domestic flight will take you to the very far south of the Maldives - an area described as "the new Maldives". The diving is without doubt incredible and offers the opportunity to dive with schooling sharks, vast schools of fish and squadrons of eagle rays - on top of this, the incredible hard coral reefs are packed with color and critters. And don't worry - we've found manta points too! These trips offer exciting diving for experienced divers with adventure in mind.
