Beginner Ticket to Kuredu Express and Afternoon 2 Tanks25 Jan 2018
Divers who visit Kuredu will probably have heard thrilling stories about one of the Maldives’ famous dive sites, Kuredu Express. Tales of pumping currents, washing- machine like conditions and, above all, sharks – sounds like something way out of reach for beginners with only a few dives in their logbooks right?
Prodivers Kuredu brings good news – not all that is heard is true! Whilst the conditions can be challenging at times, they can also be calm and well within the capabilities of beginner divers. And, there is some truth in the stories – sharks are very often seen at this site, so for those who want to go home with their very own tales of this fabled dive site can do just that!
What is all the hype about? Why is Express such a favourite of Prodivers’ guests?
Although it is known as the go-to site for sharks in the Lhaviyani Atoll, Express also has a lot more to offer: an enormous quantity of schooling fish, eagle rays, sting rays napoleon and tuna, there have even been sightings of hammerhead sharks. A coral-covered canyon, a corner and inner reef comprising of a series of ledges and overhangs full of life including the photogenic honeycomb moray and turtles.
When the team at Kuredu find that conditions on this awesome dive site are less difficult they schedule a morning 2-tank, going to Express for one of the dives – perfect for less experienced divers who cannot wait to see this awesome dive site.
Not great in the morning but still want to squeeze two dives into the day?
The afternoon 2 tank dive is just the ticket! Great for less-experienced divers and those who prefer easy-going dives, the afternoon 2 tanks are able to venture further afield than the single one-dive afternoon boats. Enjoy lunch and then join the boat at 13.30, dive two beautiful sites before returning to Kuredu – with amazing stories to share over a sundowner or two!
2-Tank dive boats include water, tea, coffee and cake on the boat, and a great opportunity to relax and enjoy a sunny surface interval too.
Come along to the Dive Center to sign up for an afternoon of diving or to enquire about the possibility of a beginner morning 2-Tank to Express – enjoy diving at a relaxed pace in easy going conditions but don’t miss a thing!
Who says the experienced divers get all the fun?!
