Diving in the Maldives


The trip is being prepared. The preliminary date is October/November 2017.

Travel: from Vienna or Munich to Doha and on to Malé, and back (only 20 kg, but it is possible to make a group diving request for another 10 kg per person). If the layover in Doha is long, it is possible to enter an airline lounge with refreshments and internet connection for c. CZK 600.

Accommodation: The TRITON is a diving boat built to hold 12-13 divers.

The Maldives crew is an experienced team composed of a captain, mechanic, a cook and 3 sailors. Since laws prevent the import of alcohol into the Maldives, alcoholic and soft drinks are both ordered in advance from the beverage menu. Extra supplies are naturally on hand.

Every other day an agreement is reached with the captain to land at some of the surrounding islands (at certain ones it is necessary to pay an entrance fee), where it is possible to eat, buy souvenirs, or just relax under a palm tree and take in the incredibly blue coastal water.

An 18-metre-long dhoni boat also accompanies the main boat, carrying the compressor and diving equipment, and taxiing divers to the sites from the main boat.

A short sightseeing flight is available for groups on the final day of the trip (not included in the price).
