Maldives

No trip planned

The Maldives is a tropical nation in the Indian Ocean composed of 26 ring-shaped atolls, which are made up of more than 1000 coral islands. It’s known for its beaches, blue lagoons and extensive reefs.

Tourists can spot real killer whales, false killer whales, dwarf sperm whales, bottlenose dolphins, striped and spotted dolphins as well as pilot whales. There can be as many as 200 dolphins in one school of dolphins. Maldives is also popular all-around the world as one of the best places to spot Whale Shark, the largest fish in the world, ranging from 18 to 32 feet.

  • Qatar Airways return flights from Cape Town – Doha – Male and all airport taxes

  • 7 nights’ accommodation in a standard double room at Biyadoo Resort Island

Tour excludes:

  • All dives

We selected this specific island because it’s one of the few islands that offer shore dives and has a world-renowned house reef.

The dive centre currently asks US$30.00 for a self-dive including tank and weights but there is a range of dive packages available from 6 dives for US$271.00 to 15 dives for US$627.00.

This is their normal retail prices they advertise on www.dive-ocean.com

We have already started negotiating to get preferred rates for Alpha Dive Centre but can only continue once we can submit number of divers.

I believe they will offer us dives less 25% at least and all this reduced cost will be passed on to you.

How to book:

  • We negotiated an amazing travel (flights) package, and to be able to secure this price we would need a R5000.00 deposit to be made as soon as possible, together with a copy of your passport and a completed booking form will secure your seat on the plane.
  • A second R5000.00 deposit must be made by the end of March.
