Sharks and Rays on our Maldivian Adventure..
For this trip aboard the Maldives Siren our divers came from all over Europe, boarding in Male on a very hot day we made the decision to leave the harbour right after our clearance and cruise towards Rasdhoo Atoll. The check dive the following morning was great with sighting of 3 different kinds of sharks and our first taste of the currents in the Maldives. As is usual on any Siren Fleet liveaboard, we tested our underwater recall system during the dive, made our personal checks and practiced deploying SMBs in readiness for the dive days ahead. The next dive was already one of my favourites, “Madivaru” never disappoints with the sheer amount of fish life. During lunch Captain Ashraf drove the yacht south into Ari Atoll for two more great dives at “Bathala Thila” and “Maaya Thila”, again with a fair amount of shark action on both dives. The following day was another “Big Name” day with “Hafsaa Thila”, “Fish Head” and a great night dive at the “Machafushi Wreck”. Sharks, schools of fish, turtles and Napoleon wrasse…. Would it get any better?
