Maldives has one of the most incredible underwater world's you can find. And you don't even have to dive to experience it. All you needs is a mask, snorkel and set of fins and you can immerse yourself in a fascinating realm just beneath the surface.
Snorkeling in the Maldives offers such a diversity of marine life, from a myriad of colourful fish, to rays, sharks, manta's and morays. Turtles glide past you seemingly unaware of your presence, whilst small trigger fish might have a nibble on your leg just to let you know you're cruising through their territory.
A Maldives yacht charter aboard Sail Shantaram is a great way to explore so many different reefs as they run along the edges of deserted islands and sand banks in remote atolls.
The water is an average of 28C so no need for anything other than some sun protection, whilst you bob lazily along the surface watching the marine world unfold beneath you. The drop-off's can be a little daunting at first - as the reefs plunge almost vertically into the abyss below. But you soon forget that as you become immersed and enthralled by the bustle of activity and life on the reef.
You can look for Nemo as he hides in the sea grass, or watch the parrot fish as they munch on the coral. Keep an eye out for the manta's and rays as they glide past, and have your heart skip a beat as the sharks swim by. Be amazed by the schools of brightly coloured fish and be delighted by the magestic whale sharks.
Your Maldives yacht charter sailing with us on Shantaram will allow you to enjoy your very own stretch of reef, without the hustle and bustle of others nearby. So grab your mask and fins and come on an incredible snorkeling adventure with us.
