The best dive sites in winter

In the last issue, we introduced you to the “summer range” of the most interesting diving destinations. Now it’s winter season, which means it’s time to stock up with practical knowledge. So, in what warm seas does a diver “wet the gills” in winter?

Maldives
Perhaps the Maldives is the second most popular after Egypt winter destination for divers. The unique charm of coral atolls is complemented by the extremely diverse flora and fauna of the Indian Ocean. People come here for an abundance of ocean fish – sometimes the breath of a variety of people scurrying around is breathtaking, and you can even get into real “fish rain”! Here they are looking for encounters with graceful and curious manta rays, mysterious hammerhead sharks, and, of course, with every diver’s dream – a whale shark.

It makes sense for all diving enthusiasts to recommend diving safaris, which are perfectly combined with a hotel stay or an excursion program around Sri Lanka. At the same time, a cruise on a yacht will be interesting not only for divers, because it allows you to see the archipelago in all its beauty (especially for this, the shaded spaces on the nose of the yacht are good) and can be complemented by snorkeling, massage or spa treatments, fishing, by canoeing and visiting islands. During a safari on many yachts vacationers waiting for a night barbecue with elements of the national show, which takes place in the light of torches on the beach of an uninhabited island. And all this – for a very reasonable price (not higher than the cost of the local hotel in full board).

The only thing worth knowing about going to the Maldives is the possibility of fairly strong currents. Also remember that, given the relative proximity and popularity of the islands, places in hotels and on yachts are bought up very quickly. The high season for diving in the Maldives is from November to April.
Mauritius and Seychelles
Unfortunately, so far most of our compatriots do not associate these areas with diving. Nevertheless, the period from September to March – the best months for diving on the island of Mauritius, when large fish swim to feed closer to the coasts, and since December and then the visibility is highest. By the way, not only the flora and fauna of the Indian Ocean, but also caves are of interest in Mauritius.

The time from September to April is well suited for diving in the Seychelles, which in terms of abundance of marine life and the intactness of the underwater world sometimes exceed the Maldives. The practice of diving safari is not yet so popular in these regions, so you can stay in any hotel – the more distant it is from the main “tourist flows”, the better. Just do not forget to clarify whether there is a dive center in it.
