Dives in the Maldives are 100 feet or less in depth.   Diving around the thilas which rise from the bottom to a coral-encrusted, flat-ish top is similar to wall diving.  Often the safety stop is done at the top of the thila, which allows you to continue diving during the safety stop. Due to these geologial formations, most dives include blue water action in addition corals & critters & reef fish.   Carpe Novo details

Your underwater adventures in the Maldives will include sea mounts (called thilas) which are found outside & inside channels. Those inside the channel normally have a strong current & the most interesting sea life.  Diving around the thilas, which rise from the bottom to a coral-encrusted top between 10 and 50 feet in circumference, is similar to wall diving. You'll get big animals and critters, too!

Manta Trust Program

Manta Trust Logo large optWhat is the Manta Trust & what are Manta Trust Expeditions?

The Manta Trust takes a multidisciplinary approach to the worldwide conservation of manta rays and their habitat through dedicated science and research projects.

One core focus of the Manta Trust expeditions is ensuring that divers leave at the end of the trip with an increased awareness of the threats facing the manta population worldwide ...  as well as increased knowledge of how to help.

On-board workshops allow divers to develop the skills necessary to identify the animals they see on a Manta Trust trip ... and to continue the work on future dive trips by submitting photos on-line to the Manta Trust’s global database.

The Manta Trust operates projects all around the world in top manta ray dive destinations. At each of these locations the project leaders have the expertise to ensure that divers receive an enriching experience.

We will bring you 2018 Manta Trust Expeditions as soon as possible .... but, please don't hesitate to contact us for more information in the meantime.
