In maldives swim with sharks is a must try and a life time experience.

This activity is available across in Maldives but in cheap you will find in Maafushi. In Maafushi you will get it in $75 per person and there is scope of negotiation.

Once you enter the ocean , you are surrounded by atleast 20-30 sharks that keep revolving around you and if you are lucky you get some ama,ING pictures with them. Do not stamp them or you h them as you will land up in a dangerous situation because I have myself witnessed shark biting a man who stapled it by mistake however it was not life threatening.

Boatman use tuna fish to attract the sharks to creat wow experience for the divers.

As it's covid period I would suggest you to carry your own snorkeling gear.

AOWD now 60 dives.
The basis is excellent. I felt in very good hands right from the start. Starting with the equipment and briefing to the behavior of the guides before, during and after the dive. Unsurpassed in comfort. The equipment is brought to the boat and assembled. You can completely concentrate on diving, great!
Everything is offered: wreck, night, current, ... I had 22 great dives and thanks to the superb care of Naufel and fashion I learned a lot and improved my diving enormously. Usually you keep the same guide for all dives, which is great for coordination, trust and getting to know each other!
I uploaded some photos to the underwater world.
Daily routine: 2 dives in the morning, one in the afternoon, by arrangement night dive departure 5.45 p.m.
Even when it comes to help with whatever, the guys were great contacts. Rent a ferry, recommend a trip. It was always taken into account what we wanted - great !!!
In my two weeks the whole team became a bit of a family and made the stay a complete success
- in this way: Many thanks to all of you, especially my two guides Naufel and Mode
Kind regards to diving paradise, Mirko
Hope, to see you again!

Maafushi dive is perhaps the best diving institute with really good teachers. The Instructors there are local Maldivians and are fun to dive with even more once you get to know them .

Marc and Ayesha were kind enough to help me with all the details online and super prompt with the packages and prices before we reached. We did dives with Suhei and Ripe and they were very kind in helping us with all the pre-dive information .

They also have the best boats, excellent equipment and I would highly recommend them for a Padi 5 certification in Maafushi

Great day diving with the team. Very helpful and knowledge about the dive sites. Perfect level of attention. I'm a intermediate level diver and they left me to dive around on my own but stayed close waited for me when I wanted to photograph stuff and pointed out interesting stuff underwater. Some dive shops I've been too basically see if as a job these guys actually love what they do and it shows. Kit was top notch, boat was good and guides were bang on. If you wanna go diving in Maafushi which I highly recommend then hit these guys up you won't be disappointed. Thanks Maafushi Dive

Both my kids completed their Open Water Certification with them. Both their instructors were really good.

The kids had fun, saw a variety of marine life.

Their support staff which looks after the boats, the wetsuits are all really good and helpful.

I did Discover Scuba with them. The instructor made me feel safe and I managed to go up to 8 meters with 40 min spent underwater
Overall we had a great time!

They ensured that we saw each and every marine life that was in the ocean during our dives, while maintaining the highest safety standards .
During the 8 day diving trip with my son, not once did we have do as much as defog the masks.
All we had to do was to get ourselves in and out of the boat and the water.
The staff - Adey Anju, Rippe, Kasim, Captain - They were so good, it was like we had been diving with them for years.
We will definitely be back to dive with them.

Was very impressed about the professionalism of this dive company. They are a 5* PADI-Shop wit A+ dive masters, good & new materials, luxurious big boats and an authentic 'safety first' mentality. Had a lot of fun with great dive sites - didn't expect much but the Channels-dives were some of the best ever!

And great value for money too! Cheapest diving in all Maldives!

One of the best experiences of my life, the staff are attentive, knowledgable and very friendly and couldn’t do anything more for me! A very professional set up in the shop and on the boat, the best diving boat on maafushi. Reasonably priced compared to prices across the world and much cheaper than the U.K. I can’t recommended Adey and Rippe enough both great instructors and the whole team deliver excellent service. The best dive centre in Maafushi by far, I can’t wait to visit you guys in the future!

Great team even for those who have not dived before,
patient and smiling.
We really enjoyed our trip. We took a full day trip that included dolphins, sharks and other animals. At first we didn't find the dolphins but they didn't give up and insisted on giving us a full experience.

I have so many good things to say about this place. The staff were all friendly and helpful from the first moment I stepped in the shop. I was a newly certified diver and quite nervous at this point. They put me at ease immediately and I went on to complete my advanced certification and enjoy many fun dives with them! The equipment and facilities are fantastic. The staff are professional and knowledgeable. Of course the dive sites themselves are also spectacular! I would definitely go back and I highly recommend you give these guys a visit if you are in Maafushi.
