If you are coming to the Maldives, then you don’t want to miss out on the beauty of the Maldives in the hours of darkness. I’m not talking about the midnight parties or your typical stargazing. Take your experience to a new level with the experiences these resorts are offering!

  • Blackwater Diving – Six Senses Laamu

The Dive Center at Six Senses Laamu, Deep Blue Divers introduced ‘Blackwater Diving’ recently. The resort is the first resort to introduce the experience in the Maldives, which is gaining popularity across the world among many dive enthusiasts.

This is not your typical day or night diving. This experience takes place in the open ocean, with divers drifting with the current in mid-water. Divers are guided by a string of LED lights attached to a vertical rope attached to a surface-floating buoy.

Th led lights attract deep dwelling, and often alien-looking micro creatures emerging vertically every night from the ocean in search of food, in one of the greatest migrations happening on the planet. Many of these micro creatures usually smaller than a human thumb, are ethereal reef fish in their juvenile phase, or invertebrates such as pygmy squids, fluorescent bristle worms and rainbow-pulsating comb jellies.

Some of the alien-looking deep dwellers found in blackwater dives are still new to science.
