Postcard from the Maldives

Well, after over 11 hours in the air and 24 hours of travelling, I’m just back from a liveaboard trip to the far South of the Maldives. Taking in the most Southerly three atolls (that’s a Maldivian word, by the way), we saw a wonderful range of sites and species, in excellent company and well looked after by Maldives Scuba Tours (thanks folks!).

The highlights were the superb unspoiled hard coral reefs, sharks and shoals on the “current points”, but most especially the manta cleaning station site. Here’s a postcard to give a small flavour of the diving. More images to follow, as I reflect on this wonderful trip.
