[#Maldives] Trip Report : MAR.31 – APR.05, 2019, #Male – #Ari – #Vaavu Route Vol.1

We had another fantastic dive trip with the guests from Hong Kong! Here is the report for the trip. The 1st dive was at Maagiri Rock in the North Male atoll. The False Moorish Idols surrounded us at the sand area. And Bluestriped Snappers, Sea Goldies were so beautiful at the reef. The 2nd dive was at Rasdhoo Madivaru in the Rasdhoo atoll. We enjoyed observing such big fish like Whitetip Sharks, Grey Reef Sharks, Giant Trevallies, and Dogtooth Tunas as well.

The day 2, the 1st dive of the day was at Kuramath Kandu in the Rasdhoo atoll. It is a small channel where we need to dive differently, like we go along with the channel at the reef as if it is a one way street. We could enjoy to see all the big rocks and big Sharks. Spotted Eagle Rays were seen as well. The 2nd dive was at Rasdhoo Madivaru. After we saw Grey Reef Sharks, Giant Trevallies and Dogtooth Tunas, there was a big school of Bigeye Trevallies coming toward us! We were surrounded by them in no time! The 3rd dive was at Maayaa Thila in the North Ari atoll. Many of Grey Reef Sharks, a couple of Broadclub Cuttlefish, Maldive Anemone Fish and Green Sea Turtle were seen. The air temperature was 26-33 deg.C.  The water temperature was 28-29 deg.C. The 3mm wetsuit was recommended. To be continued…
