Easter Diving & Snorkelling Activities in the Maldives20 Mar 2022
The Maldives has announced that visitors no longer require PCR tests, and with that a whole new holiday opportunity opens up just in time for the Easter holidays. At Prodivers we have ocean based activities for all that will make it an Easter to remember! Here’s a snapshot of some of the activities on offer that will be the beginning of ‘eggciting’ new underwater adventures:
PADI Bubblemaker Experience – Bubbles are always a hit with children and if they are aged 8+ they can enjoy an adventure they will never forget. With a maximum of two children per instructor they will learn the basics of breathing underwater before heading out to play in the lagoon at a maximum depth of 2 metres. Frisbee, torpedo and somersaults are just some of the things they can get up too whilst below the surface – all with the beautiful fish swimming around them too.
Snorkelling – Join intro sessions, boat trips and guided house reef tours that are accessible to swimmers from age 4+. Watch faces light up as they take their first peek at the kaleidoscopic colours of the tropical fish. Turtles, mantas, stingrays, huge napoleons and even sharks can be seen while snorkelling – with the ocean you really never know what will put in an appearance!
PADI Discover Scuba Diving
If you’ve always wondered what it would be like to dive in the aquarium-like conditions of the Maldives, surrounded by tropical fish and encountering turtles and rays, but discounted the idea due to the time-consuming nature of a course and the expense involved, the PADI Discover Scuba Diving program (DSD) is for you. It’s a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world, no classroom, no study, just devote as much time to diving for fun as you wish. To take part, you must be at least 10 years old. No prior experience with scuba diving is necessary.
Thrilling Easter dives are waiting for guests who are already certified divers. The amazing conditions at this time of year are perfect for taking the ever-popular underwater scooters for a spin to explore the spectacular channels and reef edges with little effort and encounters with sharks and rays are very possible. Divers who haven’t tried out the scooters yet can learn how with a scooter introduction.
Please pop along to the Dive Center to check availability and timings of individual activities, and to find out more about other adventures in the weekly program. The Prodivers teams are looking forward to sharing the Easter season and new adventures with you, in the meantime, contact us with any questions you have.
