Maldives Liveaboard - First Half

Male Atoll6 Jan 2012 - 14 Jan 2012

To escape the Jan cold i took a week liveaboard to the Maldives. The Trip included South Male Atoll, Vaavu Atoll and Ari Atoll. Although the visability was a little poor there was still a lot to see with excellent reef fish and macro life including my first Leaf Fish, Pipefish & my new favorite fish, the long snouted Pufferfish (see location photo 4).

There were plenty of sharks, mainly Grey Reef & White Tip Reef, with one amazing dive to a cleaning station where there were at least 30 being cleaned metres away from us!

Although no mantas we had a close Whale Shark encounter whilst diving a wall looking for Hammerheads, which gave many of us a few panicky seconds until we realised what the huge shadow coming straight at us was!

A great first half of the trip......then on to Ari Atoll!
