[Maldives] Trip Report : NOV. 10-16, 2018, Male Ari Vaavu Route Vol.3

[#Maldives] Trip Report : NOV. 10-16, 2018, #Male #Ari #Vaavu Route Vol.3

The day 5, we came back to the South Male Atoll for the 1st dive of the last day of diving at Graidhoo Corner. We chose a channel dive here because of the current direction. The current itself was a little stronger. We kind of relaxed drifting with the current and seeing Grey Reef Sharks and Whitetip Sharks passing by. Oriental Sweetlips we encountered with were all looking at the same direction.  The 2nd dive was at Kandooma Thila. The visibility was great! A couple of Blotched Fantail Rays were so big in the deep side. What I have to mention about this dive was how often we encountered with Sea Turtles. Total 6 of them. I don’t know why but we can’t ignore them somehow. And one more thing to mention, the Sea Goldies were covering our sight! We were surrounded by them literally 360-degree. The last dive for this trip was at Villivaru Giri in the Male Atoll. We enjoyed to observe Macros, such as endemic Maldives Triplefins. We also found a huge Stone Fish. The air temperature was 26-33 deg.C. The water temperature was 28-29 deg.C. We had one of the guests celebrated her 400th dive with us! Congratulations!

Thank you for choosing us and also for making this trip fantastic! Hope to see you all again!
