Program:
Day 1
- Friday: Departure from Prague
Day 2 - Saturday: Arrival to Maldives - Male, 11:30 boat embarkation, afternoon diving in North Male Atoll
Day 3 - Sunday: Lankan Beiru / Manta point / - an amazing location just a few miles from the airport. The reef itself is rather below average, but the manta cleansing station makes it one of the most attractive locations in the Maldives. During our luckiest dives, we observed at the same time up to 10 mantas from a distance less than 1-2m !!
Day 4 - Monday: crossing the South Male Atoll - here is the best location for watching grey sharks - especially in canals such as Coco Corner - here are the gray and reef shark cleansing stations that, if you behave cautiously and do not disturb them, in a group of 5-15 approach your close proximity ...
Day 5 - Tuesday: morning dive at Coco Corner or another shark site, afternoon crossing to Ari Atoll, diving at local sites, night dive on Maia Thil - one of the best night dives to experience - active reef sharks or stingray , sleeping turtles, stone fish, .... All at a relatively small depth of 6-15m.
Day 6 - Wednesday - Day of Whale Sharks: This day is devoted to diving and snorkelling in the Sun Island area - the site with the largest occurrence of whale sharks in the area. We usually get in touch with 2-3 pieces. Evening visit to a local fishing village, possibility to buy souvenirs
Day 7 - Thursday: diving at Ari Atol localities, if no mantas appear at Lankan Beir, another manta point - Dhonkavto Thalia is included in the program, afternoon docking at one of the uninhabited islands, swimming, night picnic on the island
Day 8 - Friday: if possible, more dives in the Ari Atoll area and evening crossing to Male or morning or night crossing to Male and then diving in the area
Day 9 - Saturday: leaving the boat until 9am, departure to the airport, arrival to the Czech Republic around 22h.
