MALDIVES: 'High Season' in the Equatorial Far South

MV Sea Spirit liveaboard in the Maldives operated by Scuba Tours Worldwide

MV Sea Spirit will be re-locating to the equatorial far south from August to October this year to take advantage of the lovely weather and to enjoy the fabulous diving! The South West monsoon, which brings a wetter weather system to the Maldives from May to November, is moderated by the equatorial currents in the far south of the Maldives - so this is a perfect time to head to the southern-most atolls of Huvadhoo, Foammulah and Addu Gan. 

From July to October the weather in the far south of the Maldives is similar to that which we experience in the December to April ‘high season’ period in the central atolls … and the other bonus is that because the far south is so remote, you often don’t see another diver or boat for days on end!  You can expect exciting diving, often planned around channel sites where there is good current, so we recommend at least 100+ logged dives and PADI Advanced or equivalent. 

The far south gives divers the opportunity to see dozens of grey sharks, eagle rays, white tips, zebra and nurse sharks plus green and hawksbill turtles, sting rays and even tiger sharks.  There are also fabulous manta points and superb hard coral growth. Obviously the diving is dependent on visibility and sea conditions, which can be variable … but we’re old hands at working with nature and our Cruise Directors have the benefit of our 25 years of diving in the Maldives – so we’re all set to give you the best dive experience possible!

We have 12 day ‘Equatorial Far South’ trips running from August to October at £2,669pp + international flights.
