Snorkelling and scuba diving in The Maldives are both fantastic, as The Maldives is one of the best snorkelling and diving destinations in the world. For the best snorkelling experience choose a resort with a good house reef, whilst for diving it’s best to choose diving from a Maldives liveaboard.
The main benefits of using a rebreather include no bubbles and reduced noise levels so you get closer to marine life, longer no-stop decompression dive times, reduced dehydration as the gas breathed is moist and improved safety with a reduced risk of decompression sickness.
You can dive on a rebreather for between 2-3 hours, and your dive time whilst using a rebreather is limited by the scrubber duration. Rebreathers are a closed-circuit breathing apparatus for scuba diving as an alternative to a scuba tank and apparatus.
Non-swimmers cannot scuba dive in The Maldives, as it is a requirement to swim 200 metres (656 feet) to get certified as a scuba diver. You will probably be able to do a try dive in a swimming pool at your resort on “Discover Scuba”, but this will not allow you to dive on the reefs of The Maldives.
Sharks prefer fish blood vs human blood and they are nearly 17 times more likely to be attracted to fish blood vs mammal blood, which in the experiment was cow blood. But the blood of mammals is very similar across all mammal species, which means that cow blood is similar to human blood.
Bull sharks are extremely aggressive animals and are known to attack people, but not on purpose. Bull sharks are dangerous because they are aggressive creatures and because they migrate up rivers, as they can live in freshwater and salt water alike, which brings them into close contact with people.
