We took a great liveaboard safari for 10 days to South Ari atolls. We were thinking a quite long time to visit Maldives but we always chose different place – we were diving mostly at Indonesia and Thailand.
I found cheap flight ticket to Male by luck and that was the reason to start to think about Maldives. Next step was to look for liveaboard. We didn’t want to stay at island we prefer to see more places and to make more diving. There were a lot of possibilities but only one for longer than 7 days at our time. It was Nautilus One. We took it and really enjoyed it. Trip was great.
We saw a lot small coral fishes it was not surprise. From big stuff we saw whale shark three times, hammerhead shark once a manta rays few times. It was really great. Coral quality was a little bit disappointment for us we expect it better. I think that some place at Indonesia are better fro this point of view. Check our short video which we made during our dives.
