There are numerous diving sites throughout the country. Some are ranked among the best in the world.
Big Game Fishing
Fishing in the Maldivian waters can be an adventure of a lifetime for keen fishermen and first-timers alike.
There are arrangements for Big Game Fishing on fast boats and night fishing using the traditional local style fishing line with weights. It is advisable to bring your rod and lures.
Sailfish, huge tuna, wahoo, barracuda and jackfish are common games.
