Diving Safaris in the Maldives at Aquafanatics Diving Centre
Envelop yourself amidst the phenomenal sight of the colorful Maldivian marine life. Aquafanatics Diving Centre presents you with memories to last a lifetime.
Aquafanatics Diving Centre
While Anantara certainly looks splendid from above the water, in the Maldives, you’ll find some of the most beautiful sights are found below the surface. See a panorama of spectacular marine views on a full-day diving safari guided by the experts from Anantara’s own PADI 5* Dive Centre.
If you’re a first-timer, get your PADI certification course that will guide you toward taking your first breaths underwater. Or simply snorkel leisurely on the edge of the lagoon, peruse the fabled Maldivian coral gardens on our daily guided snorkelling trips.
For those looking to progress as well as experienced water-men and women, orientation dives and deep-water dives are offered every day. The Anantara Dive Centre offers two boat dives a day to over 20 nearby reefs teeming with undersea life. In addition, the Centre runs full and half-day “safari dives” to reefs and sites further offshore.
PADI Diving Courses
With our full range of PADI certification courses and a variety of dive sites on offers, guests of all levels are spoiled for choice. Anantara’s instructors always endeavour to match diving ability to local dive conditions, ensuring your safety and enjoyment. From our beginner’s discovery courses to more advanced Nitrox, deep water and rescue dives, the Centre has a range of programmes to suit everyone.
All courses are taught by PADI-certified instructors, ensuring an unforgettable – and safe – learning experience in one of the world’s premier diving destinations. Our class sizes are limited to cater for each guest’s needs. Our friendly and professional staff and excellent facilities provide the perfect surroundings to explore safely and comfortably.
All divers at the Anantara Dive Centre require an orientation dive, unless you have logged a dive within the last three months in the Maldives. The orientation dive consists of a dive on our nearby house reef or another local dive site, with an instructor who will get you to demonstrate basic diving skills. After completion, you’re ready to move on to more advanced dives or courses, depending on your level and certifications.
Full and Half-Day Diving Safaris
Once you’ve explored some of our beautiful and action-packed local dive sites, taking in stunning sea fans, colourful coral, schools of fusiliers, sea turtles, and even the occasional reef shark or spotted eagle rays, it’s time to take to the high seas for a full or half-day diving safari. The Dive Centre offers regularly scheduled diving safaris by speedboat to a number of exciting locations in North or South Malé Atoll or Felidhu Atoll. Feel free to talk to our guides and instructors about setting up a privately chartered excursion just for you.
