Maldives Aggressor
Maldives Maldives
What to look at first? There is the giant Napolean wrasse, resting casually along the corner of the reef, enjoying a little spa visit to the cleaning station. Or, one of many huge schools of Harlequin sweetlips zooming by is another great site. Of course, there is always the alure of the sharks hovering in the distant blue to gaze at.

Maldives diving is year round. Each season brings the opportunity to see the same creatures, BIG and small. What makes the seasons different are the conditions. Of interest: the Maldives waters support the world’s largest known population of reef manta rays all year round.
The Southwest Season: May-October
During the Southwest season from May-October diving on the west side of the atolls can be very active - good visibility typically attracts large schools of pelagic creatures including different species of sharks, tuna, wrasse, rays and turtles. Diving on the east side of the atolls can make this season very special. Though the visibility will be decreased due to the increased plankton, it is the best time and place in the Maldives to see manta rays and whale sharks, making up for the reduced viz. This is manta feeding season so there are usually more mantas during these months. The months of June and July are the ‘official’ rainy season. Because the Maldives is in the equatorial belt, severe storms and cyclones are extremely rare events.
The Northeast Season: November-April
The Northeast season from November-April is the Maldivian summer though there is little difference in temperatures from season to season. Conditions are drier, visibility is generally very good and the reef life is usually colorful. Current can be very strong dependent upon itinerary. Due to currents flowing from the northeast, there can be a lot of shark action on the east side of the atolls. During this season, the manta and whale sharks will mostly be found on the west side of the atolls.
