Diving

The country is endowed with thousands of reefs. Over a 1000 species of fish inhabit these reefs, 300 of which were recorded for the first time in Maldives. Hundreds of species of hard and soft corals adorn the reefs providing dazzling colors. The reefs are so numerous that divers can literally swim from one to the other. However in spite of this, each dive site has its own special character and appeal.
The outside reefs of the atolls are the fortresses that defend the Maldives from the strong elements. They are solid and impenetrable. The channels through which currents flow through the Maldives chain feature interesting coral formations such as jagged walls, crevices and caves. Due to the high level of nutrients in the channels divers can find caves and overhangs full of soft coral, a wide range of invertebrates, gorgonians and sponges. There are also several canyons and the steep drop offs that provide for exciting dives. An exciting array of pelagics, predators and reef fish converge in these areas to feed in the colliding waters filled with nutrients.

Snorkeling

The abundance of marine life is a source of attraction for not only divers but also for those passionate about snorkeling. Around 70 different species of colorful coral reefs make up the flora of this underwater city with more than 700 species of fishes and other aqua marine life taking the role of the fauna.
The water currents play an important role in the gathering of the big fish species. Some of the interesting fish species found here are Dogtooth Tuna, Tuna, Trevally's, Jacks, Sweetlips, Butterfly fish, Mating octopus, Wahoo and Fusiliers. What makes Maldives special for the Snorkelers is the presence of rare marine life species like the giant Napoleon Wrasse.

Surfing

The Maldives is fast becoming an important surf destination. The O'Neil Deep Blue international surf competition has now become a regular annual event participated by the best known names in the surfing world.
While most of the recognized surf breaks are in Male' Atoll, several known breaks are dotted in the central atolls. Although breaks in Male' Atoll can be surfed from a resort the breaks further out can only be accessed on a surfing safari. The good news is there is still more to be discovered.
