I went to Maldives last summer to explore my sunny side of life in the dazzling turquoise water. I think it is the best place in the world to renew the energy cells of life which was tremendously hampered by the stress of professional and personal life. I want to share my experiences of the scuba diving in Maldives here.

Day 1: ‘Assalam Alaikum’ is the first word I heard while setting the first steps on this tropical paradise. Our flight was two hours delayed. Male International Airport is an island which has the airport and related facilities. We boarded on a speed boat and went to a sea plane to reach our resort. During lunch we had some mouth watering local sea foods such as mas Maldives Sunsethuni and keemia in that self contained resort. Then we visited a sandy beach to relax and watch the serene beauty of the blue sea. On the beach, I met a local friend from whom I got to know that Maldives has 1,190 island scattered over an area of 90,000 sq. km. The main occupation of the country is fishery and tourism. He invited me for night fishing which is the exclusive attraction of Maldives beside scuba diving.

Day 2: I woke up in the next day morning with the sweet black tea. The warm sea of Maldives was tempting me to take a dive in it. The sea of Maldives is a home to the most diverse varieties of flora and fauna. Along with that, thousands of coral reefs and colorful species of fishes enhance the beauty of the crystal clear water. As I did not carry my dive gear, I had to rent that from the resort. And the best part of this dive in Maldivian Sea is that, you don’t have to be a professional diver. Anyone can have this life time experience with the basic training given by the resorts and safari boat trainers. After my first dive, my first feeling was that I was transported to Heaven. Under the crystal clear water, I could experience thousands of species of fishes, huge mantas or Manta Ray and even sharks. Tiny shrimp crawled over our body. And the color! It seemed that no color in the palette of the universal creator was untouched.

I went to Maldives in April which is the start of surfing season. After spending hours in the Maldivian surf break, I had the experience of night fishing with my new friend. And I must say it was a nice experience. We were enjoying the peace of night under the starry sky. My friend, an expert fisher was able to catch some grouper fishes while I had to satisfy myself in sapper fishing. We ended the day by having a barbecue preparation of the fish.
