If you're a diving enthusiast a journey across many islands, exploring dive-site after dive-site is surely an enticing idea.

Guests are usually taken not only to uninhabited islands and dive sites but also Maldivian villages where they can learn about the nation's unique culture. Additionally, guests can interact with the locals, and experience the unique houses they live in, which are built out of coral stones. During certain times you can even see the men of the villages head out into the ocean on their traditional boats to carry out their livelihood, which is fishing. Full day tours always consist of a picnic on an uninhabited island, which is sure to be an experience you won't soon forget. After all, it's not always one gets to have lunch on an island all to oneself.
