Vilamendhoo, Maldives

Another excellent holiday to the Maldives with lots of good diving, including diving with manta rays. I am very glad to say that Vilamendhoo is still living up to expectations. Although it is now over two years since the refurb, everything is still looking in good condition. The staff were as friendly and helpful as ever, the food is good and plentiful, and the diving was excellent.

Euro Divers ran a very good operation as usual. We ended up doing 20 dives each, and surprisingly for me more than half of them were boat dives. We did the all day manta trip and were rewarded with a couple of brilliant dives where we saw several mantas for quite a long time – they really are awesome creatures! We even managed to see a manta on one of the ordinary boat trips, just after seeing a stingray and then an eagle ray in quick succession. On other dives the smaller fish life was very prolific, often with shoals of fusiliers or trigger fish as you jumped in off the boat. On a couple of occasions we experienced a bit more of a significant current. However, overall I would say that we had a brilliant holiday with plenty of chilling out between the diving and eating – I even managed to read two books! Thank you Sarah.
