The Maldives is located south of India’s Lakshadweep islands, and about seven hundred kilometers south-west of Sri Lanka. If your idea of paradise is a pristine tropical island with swaying palm trees and pure white beaches surrounded by crystalline lagoons of varying shades of blue, it will be at Maldives.
During the year, there will only be two periods which would slightly discourage divers from visiting Maldives, and that would be in May and November, where currents are changeable and a higher chance of stormy conditions.
From November, currents flow in from the northeast, bringing in superb visibility and increased action from sharks and other pelagics in the channels and thilas. These currents may become stronger in January till February when they start to calm down and easy diving and slacker currents.
After the monsoon ends in May, the currents change toward the south-west side whereby the cycle begins again in June.
