Southern Maldives Liveaboard

From: £Contact us

Travel to the southern Maldives and escape the crowds for an exceptional liveaboard experience with plenty of shark encounters.

The southern Maldives is renowned for exceptional drift diving, superb visibility, unspoiled corals and some of the best shark encounters in the Maldives. Think grey reef, hammerhead and silky sharks.

Diving in the Gaafu Alifu Atoll includes many channel dives such as Nilandhoo and Viligili and plenty of opportunity for exploratory diving. Departing from Kooddoo, there are a handful of liveaboards operating unique itineraries in season.

The itinerary below is based on a seven night special trip on board the MY Sheena exploring the dive sites of the Gaafu Alifu Atoll. To join the trip, divers must have logged 60 dives. Longer two week trips are also scheduled. Please ask the Dive team for details.
