Description: A handful of clips from a recent trip in December 2020 to the Maldives scuba diving around the numerous dive sites of South Ari, North Ari, North Male and Vaavu Atolls. We dived for ten days with the Prodivers Team at Lily Beach Resort in South Ari Atoll, and also spent another ten days on the Emperor Explorer Liveaboard dive boat sailing around North Male Atoll, Vaavu Atoll, South Ari Atoll and North Ari Atoll. The weather was mid monsoon change which meant the diving conditions and visibility were challenging to get nice stable and clear content, but I think this video shows what is possible. The footage is filmed on a Sony A7siii with Nauticam housing and WACP-1 wide angle conversion port. Camera settings were 4K 60FPS HDR HLG2, using custom white balance before every shot. Everything is shot hand held, using only the in camera IBIS and buoyancy control for stabilisation - no stabilisation has been used in post production.

Explore the amazing triangle of Red Sea Reefs - The Brothers, Daedalus and Elphinstone on board the brand new liveaboard Big Blue.  With an option to add on a week at Roots Red Sea before or after. 

Strong currents and deep blue water are the catalysts that bring the pelagic species flocking to these reefs. The reefs themselves provide exquisite homes for a multitude of marine life.  The wafting soft corals are adorned with thousands of colourful fish. The gorgonian fans and hard corals provide magnificent back drops, all being patrolled by the reef’s predatory species.

£1475 per person based on double occupancy.  Soft all inclusive board basis, buffet meals with snacks, tea and coffee always available.  Add a week on at Roots Red Sea Resort before or after the liveaboard for just £725pp.  Flights and transfers are included.  See our brochure linked above for the full itinerary.
