This Maldives trip was during the manta and whale shark season in the fall of 2013. Yet another great trip with Fred and company. The boat was luxurious. Swift currents were frequent and often required reef hooks. There was a hurricane to the east in India which led to frequent storms during the first few days. The visibility was often poor due to the increase in plankton. The night time shark dive was spectacular- see the video. The night manta dive was fun too. We shared the boat with Harry's Dive shop from New Orleans. Overall, a good trip with great company. The flights are easy on Emirates and it's worth checking out Dubai on the way there.
More video coming soon.
