Re: Maldives, any cheap scuba diving on boat or hotels?

Hi Tim, firstly, I'm talking from 20 years ago, so my comment may not be much help, but in any case, back then there was a variety of places to stay ranging from expensive luxury resorts to real cheap backpacker type accommodations. I don't know what's changed since then. As for diving there, well, I was right into snorkeling back then and did a lot of it around Victoria and the eastern coast, but when I went to the Maldives it just blew me away. The water is/was so incredibly clear that I didn't see any need for diving. Snorkeling was so great there. In fact, I'm not even sure that there was the depth for diving really, but I don't know enough about that. What I do know is that I went in November and saw all sorts of marine life right in my face; sharks, turtles, moray eels, millions of fish, but the one thing I was a few months early for was the manta rays. Apparently they're around in February-ish. Enjoy your trip.
