Southern Maldives big-animal drifts

New for 2017 from Emperor Maldives are Deep South & Southern Sharks itineraries in remote dive-sites between Huvadhoo and Laamu.

From February to April it says you can avoid the crowds and dive Foammulah and Huvadhoo on the look-out for tiger, silvertip, hammerhead, silky, grey reef and whale sharks.

Guests can travel from Male to Huvadhoo or vice versa to join their liveaboard – or from Huvadhoo to Male, diving from Emperor Virgo or Emperor Leo. The emphasis is on swift channel drift-dives, and the itinerary is best suited to experienced divers looking for “away from it all and different” diving.

Full board, free nitrox and local transfers are included in the price for a seven-night trip of £1979pp (sharing a twin-berth cabin and excluding flights). Ten-night trips are also available.

Do you need to be fit to dive?

Adventurer, technical diver, stuntman, climber and all-round Action Man Andy Torbet knows a thing or two about keeping fit. Here he gives some basic advice to help us all get back into shape for when we can hit the water again.

Ship shape

The skipper promised me a wreck, so it must be down here somewhere. If the vis was better, I might even be able to see it.

Things fall apart

I can’t quite understand it. How did that happen? Every item of my scuba kit was fine when I put it away.

Free and squeezy

Freediving – it’s basically snorkelling with good PR. It involves holding your breath, often to the point of semi-suffocation. What’s so free about that?
