Scuba Diving in the Maldives Lhaviyani atoll

Children and Youth Diving Programs for kids aged 8+

Diving is a great activity for the whole family. For youngsters aged 8 and 9 who have never dived before, the PADI Bubblemaker program is a safe and fun introduction to diving and can be completed in just a few hours.

For those aged 8 or older who love the water, the PADI Seal Team is an action-packed program where various aqua missions are completed, and a certification is issued.

Deep Blue Divers has obtained special permission from PADI to conduct the Seal Team and Bubblemaker programs in the ocean so kids can enjoy the thrills of diving and seeing marine life in a safe and controlled environment.

Children aged 10+ can participate in the junior version of the adult dive courses described below.

PADI Discover Scuba Diving

A PADI Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) course is the first step to becoming a diver and is perfect for those who have never experienced diving previously. It consists of a short theory session, a confined water session and an open water dive to a maximum depth of 12 meters / 40 feet. The whole experience takes about two hours and is a great way to immerse in the colorful underwater life of the Lhaviyani Atoll.

PADI Scuba Diver

The PADI Scuba Diver Course is ideal if you don’t have a lot of time and want to get your first diving certificate. It can be completed in 2-3 days* and includes a certification that enables you to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional to a maximum depth of 12 meters / 40 feet.

*All courses can be shortened significantly by enrolling in PADI e-learning and completing the theory before you arrive at Six Senses Kanuhura. PADI e-learning is a great way to avoid spending your holiday in the classroom. Finish all the theory online at your own pace from home or in your office and just enjoy the practical in-water sessions while on holiday.

PADI Open Water Diver

The PADI Open Water Diver Course is the most popular scuba diving course. It can be conducted in 3-4 days* and consists of five theory and five confined water sessions and four open water dives. The maximum depth for Open Water Divers is 18 meters / 60 feet.

The Nitrox course can be conducted in just a couple of hours* with a theory session, a practical session with an oxygen analyzer and a final exam. No diving is necessary to obtain this certification. Deep Blue Divers offers Nitrox for free for certified Enriched Air / Nitrox divers. Minimum age: 12 years.

Private Dive Experiences

The option of private dive courses is perfect if you’d like to learn at your own pace, set your own schedule and do a dive course which has been tailor-made just for you. You’ll have the instructor’s undivided attention as well, making progress easy and fun! This option is available for all dive courses.

Daily Fun Dives Schedule for Certified Divers

To accommodate all divers’ needs, we schedule our dive boats to go out three times a day. Choose the option(s) that suits you best. All our boat dives include a light snack (fruit skewers, pastry, coffee, tea and drinking water).

All dives are a maximum of 60 minutes in duration and the maximum guest to guide ratio is 6:1 but is typically 4:1 or fewer.

  • 9:00 am – 1:30 pm Two-Tank Dive Trip – these trips often do one channel or outer reef dive followed by one inner reef dive. The channel dives are geared towards the more advanced divers, as often these sites are exposed to stronger currents, with the potential reward of seeing more megafauna and bigger schools of fish. For these dives, Advanced Open Water and Nitrox are strongly recommended.
  • 10:30 am – 12:30 pm One-Tank Dive Trip – these trips are for those who want to sleep in or only want to do one dive and typically take place at a close-by dive site where there are no currents, making for very relaxed, easy dives.
  • 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm One-Tank Dive Trip – these trips are for those who only want to do one dive, or a second or third dive of the day and usually take place at a close by dive site where there are no currents, making for very relaxed, easy dives.

All certified divers must show proof of certification. This is required to participate in fun diving activities. If you forget to bring your certification card, we will do our best to try to find your certification online. However, the onus is on the diver to provide proof of certification and inability to do so will result in not being able to dive as a certified diver and pre-booked dives will not be refunded.

Other Diving Options

  • 6:30 – 8:30 am Early Morning Dive – Early morning dives are a great way to start the day! Enjoy a leisurely breakfast after your dive.
  • 9:00 am – 3:00 pm Full Day Two-Tank Dive Trip to Two Channels – these trips go out to two channels and are geared towards more advanced divers. Advanced certification and Nitrox are strongly recommended. For two-channel trips, a light lunch is provided on the boat (or beach if possible) with a surcharge.
  • 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm Night Dive – Night dives on inner reefs where there is no current are great in Lhaviyani. See for yourself what changes on the reef at night!

Medical

You will be required to complete a medical questionnaire and liability release to participate in any diving activities.

Are you fit to dive?

This is an important question for every diver or prospective diver and of course we hope you will come and dive with Deep Blue Divers and share some of the amazing dive experiences possible in the Lhaviyani atoll.

The RSTC Medical Form below is not a substitute for a medical check-up but will usually indicate if you should have a medical check-up and if you will need a “Fit to Dive” certificate from a doctor to dive or not.

When you will need a FIT TO DIVE medical certificate from a doctor:

  • If you answered “YES" to questions 3, 5 or 10 on page 1 OR to any of the questions on page 2 of the RSTC form.
  • If you are 65 years or older. Even if you can answer all questions with “NO” on the RSTC form, an FTD certificate is still required for those 65 years or older. As mentioned above, it is highly recommended that you obtain this certificate from a licensed diving physician.
  • If you are 75 years or older, our insurer applies special conditions; please contact us for more information.

In addition, please note: if you suffer from any serious medical condition which could compromise your safety and health while diving, you should be evaluated and certified fit to dive by a registered diving physician only.
