EnlargeCentral Explorer Maldives Itinerary

Central Explorer (May to October)

7 day trips - Laamu to Laamu

You don't need a minimum number of dives, but you should be comfortable with drift dives. Due to the time of year when this itinerary runs, the currents are generally weaker, however all currents can be unpredictable and can change to strong. If you are an Open Water Diver, some dives are below 18m therefore we recommend having advanced experience or taking your PADI Advanced Open Water course on board to maximise your enjoyment from the trip. Inexperienced and beginner divers may find some dives challenging and may be asked by the Cruise Director to skip dives that are not suitable for their diving experience. All diving is made from dhonis to give precise entry and exit points.

Please note: Due to weather and diving conditions, it's not always possible to visit each Atoll. Your Cruise Director will decide the best ones to visit at the time of diving.


  • Meemu Atoll: Enchanting channels with pelagic action, Sailfish, Grey reef sharks, Eagle rays and beautiful soft coral. Manta cleaning station.
  • Thaa Atoll: Hammerhead sharks, Whale sharks at night.
  • Laamu Atoll: Beautiful fish filled channels with great shark encounters.

Escape the crowds of the northern atolls and hang out in some of the least developed atolls in the Maldives. Laamu, Thaa and Meemu have just 4 resorts between them and lots of uninhabited islands. What does this mean? Reduced competition for pristine dive sites (and there's lots to choose from) and less crowded.

What to expect at these under-developed atolls? Great encounters with mantas, potential for whale sharks at night and hammerheads in the blue, plus a variety and an abundance of fish that will make your head spin!

Hammerheads are often found in Thaa, as well as whale sharks who visit our boat at night, the lights from the boat attract the krill, which in turn bring the whales sharks in close to feed. When the currents are running favourably, the channel dives here are outstanding and filled with life; schooling snappers, jacks, barracuda, white tips and greys, grouper, Napoleon wrasse, turtles, eagle rays and so many more.

Looking for an extension? Why not consider staying a cruise and stay combining your liveaboard with a land-based holiday at Reveries Diving Village, where Emperor Divers have a fully equipped dive and water sports centre.
