UK based tour operator Scuba Tours Worldwide has launched two ‘Shark Specials’ in the Maldives in 2015 travelling through seven of the amazing southern atolls and concentrating on delivering the very best diving-with-sharks opportunities available.
The majority of dive sites visited are channels where large numbers of grey sharks, silvertip and occasionally hammerhead sharks can be seen. These are classic hook-in-and-look sites. This route will also offer the famous night dive with huge nurse sharks plus stingrays and pink whip rays. These are exciting, challenging safaris with a route that includes some sites which are very rarely dived. They will suit experienced divers (minimum 100+ logged dives) who are happy in fairly strong currents and making fast descents. As the majority of sites will require divers to stay around 30m for extended periods, nitrox certification would be an advantage.
The first Shark Special trip will cruise from South Male Atoll and meander south via Felidhoo, Vattaru, Mulaku, Thaa, Laamu and Huvadhoo Atolls with a domestic flight back to Male at the end of the trip (the second trip follows the reverse itinerary).

Indo siren destroyed by fire
Indo Siren, a vessel from the Master Liveaboards Fleet, has been destroyed by a fire this morning. Thankfully, all guests and crew members are safe.
Master Liveaboards have released the following statement:
During our current cruise in Raja Ampat, on the morning of 30th November, a fire broke
out on Indo Siren. At the current time we are still assessing the events around the incident,
and will be working with authorities, so cannot currently comment further.
All guests and staff departed the boat, without further incident. They are now with our
ground crew who have organised accommodations while we assist with all their other
needs going forwards.
We are currently evaluating the issues created by the fire on upcoming trips. Guests who
are likely to be affected by enforced cancellations or changes will be contacted in due time

We are incredibly grateful that this incident was not more serious and that everyone who
was onboard, both crew and guests, are safe and well.
