Embudu - feedback on dive school, rainy season

Thinking of booking Embudhu in August. Appreciate it is the rainy season but school holidays dictate these days. Been to villamenhoo in feb 07 and that was great. How wet is it in August, short heavy bursts or long spells of rain? Is the sea calm or rough in the rainy season?

I will be taking my daughter with me, she will be newly qualified 14 year old diver. Has anyone experience of the dive school and its suitability for a new young diver?

Hi Rusty

Can't comment on the dive school i'm afraid. If you follow the "FAQ: What is the weather like?" link on the right hand side of the forum it will provide you with a wealth of information.

As you say it is the rainy season but it will also be hot and you could be lucky with the sunshine. The first time my daughter went to the Maldives it was in August and she had clear blue skies for nearly all of her 7 days. It really is luck of the draw.

like OD says .... you could have anything from 2 weeks of brilliant sunshine to 2 weeks of nearly uninterrupted rain.

the rain might come in "short heavy bursts" or last several days. the sea might be calm or rough. winds could be almost still or stormy ..... absolutely any combination is possible and odds are that you will be experiencing a mix of a bit of everything.

Thanks for feedback. FAQ under my nose and I missed it. Just worried we will spend all that cash and just get rain.

Thanks for feedback. Decided to take the plunge and booked last 2 weeks in July. Fingers crossed.
