Trip itinerary

Day 1 :
Hulhumale

A Dune agent will meet you at the airport and will transport you to the Noraya. Once you arrive, you will be offered refreshments while the cruise director will provide you with all the necessary information about the ship's organisation and the details of your cruise. Dinner will be served in the evening and the first night will be spent in the Hulhumale marina.

The trip will start by exploring the long reefs of North Male Atoll. Corals are abundant here, providing an exceptional home for many fish and smaller creatures. After the first dive we will sail to Vaavu Atoll to get straight into the heart of the action. There is nothing more exciting than watching sharks, rays and jacks crevalles searching for food.

In addition to the exceptional topography and marine life, you will also visit the virgin reefs of Meemu Atoll. The excellent canal covered with steep walls and overhangs covered in soft corals. A great chance to encounter hammerheads with grey sharks, white tip sharks, eagle rays, napoleons and turtles.

Travelling south, you will discover a varied topography: thilas, gyres, canals, coral gardens and overhangs. You will also encounter reef sharks, white tips, eagle rays, tunas, and jacks crevalles shoals.

Laamu Atoll is characterised by drift dives and deep canals that attracts sharks, rays, jacks crevalles and tunas. You will also discover intact caves and drops offs. The central lagoon hosts large shoals of parrotfish, triggerfish and turtles.

The largest atoll in the Maldives, located in the deep south, offers intact reefs and lagoons. A wide variety of turtles and sharks, including blacktip, whitetip and nurse sharks have made their home here. You may even be lucky enough to see the bulldog and tiger sharks that sometimes honour us with their presence.

Gaaf dhall is also made up of very beautiful canals with intact corals and also very frequented by pelagics.

Depending on current and wind conditions we will then head to the mythical site of Fuvamulah. Located below the equator, it is renowned for the presence of many sharks, in particular tiger sharks, and very often reserves beautiful surprise encounters!

We will spend the day on this mythical atoll searching for large pelagic fish for special encounters. In addition to the beautiful underwater scenery, there are also new chances to encounter napoleons and other shoals of coral fish.

A last dive on Fuvamulah atoll and then we will go back up to Gaafu to enjoy the multitude of canals that this atoll offers. Afterwards we will anchor at night with the possibility to observe whale sharks at the back of the boat.
