Maldives Aggressor

Trip Leader: Cathy Christopher

The small, island nation of the Maldives is arguably one of the best big animal dive destinations in the world. With over 1,100 exquisite coral islands nestled in the Indian Ocean, the Maldives deliver close encounters with graceful manta rays, huge whale sharks, and enormous schools of reef fish. It is not uncommon to have a train of mantas lined up in a current-swept channel, waiting their turn to be cleaned by small reef fish while you hover nearby!

Aside from amazing diving, the Maldives are one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Idyllic white, sandy beaches line countless islands; you can’t help but fall in love with the views as one is more striking than the next.

Our trip also includes the SSI Manta Ecology course to better prepare our divers for this epic adventure. If you are looking for an exciting, thrilling and exotic dive vacation, the Maldives delivers every time!
