Maldives Underwater Beauties - Submarine Dive

Duration: Half Day

maldives underwater beauties - submarine dive

Popular with holiday makers seeking sun and relaxation, and honeymooners seeking romance and seclusion, the Maldives is a paradise destination. Made up of 1190 coral islands forming an archipelago of 26 major atolls, this beautiful is country is renowned for its stunning white sandy beaches and its beautiful crystalline turquoise waters, which are teeming with tropical marine life and coral reefs. If you want to explore this breathtaking underwater world, snorkeling and diving are just some of the options available during your holiday in the Maldives. However, tours such as Submarine Diving mean that you can enjoy all the thrills of diving without the equipment or even getting wet!

The German Whale Submarine was created by the Germans, hence the name, and is one of only a few submarines of its kind used for tourist excursions in the world. Holding a capacity of 50 passengers, this exciting underwater vehicle is also the world’s largest deep diving submarine used for underwater tours. Descending to a depth of up to 150m, the submarine stops at different points on the way, first to 25m and then to 40 meters below the ocean’s surface, enabling you to witness the beauty of tropical life in the Indian Ocean in a safe, air-conditioned environment.

Your knowledgeable, expert guides and instructors will brief you on all the different dive sites around the Maldives archipelago, and they will also point out many different marine species on the way. Prepare to be enthralled and delighted as you gaze out of portholes to a spectacular natural aquarium, surrounded by intriguing wrecks, breathtaking coral reef gardens and an abundance of exciting sea creatures. Watch schools of brightly-coloured tropical fish swim close to the windows of the submarine, including lionfish, anemone fish, parrotfish and butterfly fish, and look out for sea turtles, sting rays, manta rays, giant groupers, eels, whale sharks, grey reef sharks, white-tip sharks and many other species.

If you take a night dive, the submarine’s lights will illuminate the coral as it gets close to the reef walls, revealing vivid colours that are not visible in the natural daylight. Coral species you are likely to see on your journey include brain coral, star coral, staghorn coral, rose coral and many more. Coral reefs support thousands of living organisms, so getting up close is a fascinating and breathtaking experience.

This unforgettable excursion is available only in very few parts of the world, so don’t miss out on discovering the natural treasures of Maldivian waters in a real submarine.
