Maldives Dive Overview

Diving in the Maldives is known for its diversity. From tiny nudibranchs and hard to spot ghost pipe fish, through eels, turtles, big schools of snappers, fusiliers and reef sharks to our favorite manta rays and whale sharks are seen all year round. Water temperature: Water temperature varies from 80F (27 Celsius) in the wet season to 86F (30 Celsius) in the dry season. 3mm wetsuit recommended

The Horizon III prides itself on its focus on safe diving. With 4 dive masters, the average dive ratio is 1 dive master to 6 divers which is very rare in the Maldives. All the dives are conducted from a spacious and fully equipped dive Dhoni. The Blue Horizon III offers a variety of itineraries that include shark dives, channel diving and manta cleaning stations. As the southern atolls of the Maldives are some of the least explored and untouched areas, the marine life here is extremely abundant. Divers can expect to see whale sharks, silkies, hammerheads, tiger and grey sharks.
