One of the major reasons many people come to the Maldives is to experience some of the world's best diving. Crystal clear tropical waters, colorful reefs laden with exotic fish species, and occasional wrecks all add to the allure. Most resort islands run dive courses for the uninitiated and will organise trips to nearby dive sites. The costs of these can run into the hundreds of dollars. Live-aboard boat excursions are a cheaper option to staying at luxury resorts and
they also give access to more varied dive sites. These boats can go for as little as $175 per person per day, including dives, meals, and accommodation, though you will sacrifice some comfort at the lower end of the rate scale. Check out the website below for more info on this type of trip.
