From this August to October, guests can enjoy two special diving itineraries onboard Emperor Atoll to include some of the best diving sites that the more remote northern atolls of the Maldives have to offer. These special ‘one-way’ itineraries have been chosen to run when the manta are most prolific.

With a promise of memorable diving with mantas and whale sharks, exciting channel diving, beautiful coral formations, wrecks and pinnacles brimming with life, both itineraries include a visit to the famous Hanifaru Lagoon where snorkelling with the manta and whale sharks that come to feed on the plankton in this shallow lagoon is high on the agenda.

Shark lovers will be enthralled by the hammerheads, grey reefs and white tips sharks of Rasdhoo and Maaya Thila. Of course, as always with nature, sightings can’t be guaranteed but visiting at this time of year means the chances are really high!

The two itineraries can even be combined to spend an exciting two weeks diving eight of the twenty six atolls in one trip.

Because guests don’t have to sail back to Male at the end of the trip (guests are flown directly back) then it’s possible to visit more remote dive sites in a one-week sailing than before.

The first route is Male to Baa Atoll and then fly back to Male from Baa. The second route is Baa to Male (fly up to Baa Atoll).

Prices start from £1600 per person for 7 nights in a twin/double cabin, full board, 6 days’ diving, FREE Nitrox, guide, tanks and weights, 1 BBQ dinner on uninhabited island, all transfers, one way domestic flight from Male to Baa Atoll (or Baa Atoll to Male), return international flights and airport taxes.

With over twenty years of dive centre and resort management, the Diverse Travel team has the experience to deliver memorable diving holidays that benefit from full financial ATOL protection under the TTA.
