The Maldives Islands are synonymous with diving. Its capricious geography consists of over 1,200 small coral islands, not all are surveyed and some emerge or disappear, with earthquakes of the sea. The Maldives offer the professional diver and to tourists that plunge for the first time, an evolving paradise.
There are more than 4000 species of fish on coral reefs. Only in the Maldives are over 900. Many tourists visit the Maldives for withdraw from the world. The friendliness of its waters and species diversity invites to discover an exuberant underwater world.
The novel diver is usually terrified with the mere presence of the shark. Our panic may upset them. But if you simply observe their movements, he will be at our fingertips.
The legend of man-eating shark, has been disproved. Most only feeds on mollusks and small fish, but something about their appearance (as an ancestral fear of man) still frightening us.
Most species are escondidizas during the day. They take advantage of the night to hunt, from coral crevices where they hide their long bodies, which in the larger species can reach three meters. There are so many species that live on the reef, where is given the disconcerting fact that hunters prey and swim very close to each other.
The shark is the lord of the sea. For the diver, swimming beside her is like winning their respect. Some experienced divers roam the oceans in order to boast of being with all shark species.
Tourism promotion has enabled the Maldives to develop its economy, although there are still large gaps in their population. Its diffusion as a privileged place of rest and exotic beaches has paralleled promoting diving in the reefs. Thousands of divers immerse every year in its waters. In our world, saturated with artificial images, the ocean offers us an endless entertainment.
