[Maldives] Trip Report : SEP.03 – 07, 2019, Male – Ari Short Route Vol.3

[#Maldives] Trip Report : SEP.03 – 07, 2019, #Male – #Ari Short Trip Route Vol.3

Day 3 was the last day of diving for this short route trip.  The 1st dive was at Kudarah Thila in the South Ari atoll.  The good weather continued still. The condition was great with fantastic visibility as we could see from the surface to the bottom. Neon Fusiliers and Variablelined Fusiliers made a big curtain in the mid layer. Giant Trevallies and Bluefin Trevallies were of course attacking them. What I should say here is that the number of the Bluestripe Snappers is extraordinary.  The 2nd dive was at Maamigiri Out. And the 3rd dive was at Lux Out.  Both sites were in the Whale Shark zone. Unfortunately we could not locate it. But I could introduce many of the endemic species, including Oriental Sweetlips and Colare Butterflyfish. Besides, Black-blotched Stingray, Cowtail Stingray and Mangrove Whipray were seen.  The air temperature was 26-31 deg.C. The water temperature was 28-29 deg.C. The 3mm or 5 mm wetsuit was recommended. The visibility was 10-30m.   Thank you all for choosing our M/V Fun Azul IV, and also for making this trip amazing! Hope to see you all again!
