    Excellent experience and value for money Addu - Male, Maldives in December

    Very well organised and very nice crew. The food was an awesome surprise, the best food we've had in the maldives. The dive sites were very well picked and guided. Great to see tiger sharks, grey reef, hammerhead and also some cool small stuff.

    Land of the tiger sharks! Tiger Shark Cruise (Addu-FuhaMulah), Maldives in November

    Fuvamulah Island is in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Addu Atoll which is the most southern point of Maldvives. Due to the availability of food that they like, the area surrounding the island is definitely a tiger shark haven! Tiger shark is a solitary hunter,very stealth and it’s got tiger strips on it that make it very distinct and intimidating! It’s huge as it could get up to, like, 6m! It could be a man-eater as, next to the dreaded Great White, it inflicts more attacks on human than any other shark specie! ‘Princess Rani’ liveaboard, based at Addu Atoll for part of the year, specializes in tiger shark viewing and it delivers! Keep in mind that tiger sharks are very elusive and live in the deep, yet I managed to see them in 4 of the 5 dives that I did in the area specifying as tiger shark dives! For shark lover and thrill seeker like me here, the dive trip is exhilarating, to see the least! ‘Princess Rani’ is a spacious beautiful boat and has all the modern amenities, yet it’s built like a medieval Italian castle, with exposed wood everywhere, that I love! Now, like traditional South Mediterranean style, we all sat together like a big happy family and ate all the meals on this big table on the canopied terrace of the boat in the fresh air! Definitely a new experience! And the genuine Italian cuisine, is out of this world! I felt like I was at some fancy Italian restaurant for every single meal---I actually took photos on my smartphone at every mealtime and send them home to share the amazing footage with my family (Now my husband wishes he could snorkel or dive and join the ‘Princess Rani’…just for the food!). The cooking staff was also very considerate as I could not have cheese and they made sure that I was given portion without cheese whenever an Italian cheesy dish was coming up. Besides wonderful and exciting diving, liveaboard on ‘Princess Rani’ is a culinary delight— it’s definitely a trip for Foodie cum Diver/ Snorkeler! Bravo!!! At the time that I went, in late Novemeber, ‘Princess Rani’ was the only liveaboard in Addu City and the Fuvamulah Island! We had the whole of the Deep South of Maldives all to ourselves. There were no other divers…which made the tiger shark dives especially---very eerie!...I love it! On many famous dive sites in the world, there are always other divers as diving is a popular and alluring sport. Yet on this dive trip, I felt like that I had the whole ocean to our group of divers and the tiger sharks were there to greet us, not the other way around! I heard that even during other times of the year, there weren’t many dive boats there either, so this is for sure Virgin Tiger Shark Country there! Go now!
