How To Try Scuba Diving at Komandoo

During your stay at Komandoo Maldives it will be all too easy to sink into the relaxed island vibe of ‘no news, no shoes’ but even if you kick off your shoes the minute you arrive and don’t intend to put them back on again until you leave, we recommend you put on a pair of fins (also known as flippers in the non-diving community!) and allow the team at the dive centre take you on an underwater adventure!

The Maldives is one of the best scuba diving destinations in the world, with breathtaking reefs and incredible marine life that can be seen even in the shallows. There’s no need to commit to a PADI course if you don’t want to, at Komandoo you can get a glimpse of the wonders of the ocean and experience breathing underwater by doing an Introduction Dive with the onsite dive centre, Prodivers.

Prodivers are renowned for their friendly and patient dive instructors, and with the clear, shallow lagoons surrounding the resort, there really is no better place to give diving a try and perhaps even get totally addicted to a new hobby! The Introduction Dive is designed for those who have never tried scuba diving before. You’ll get an explanation of the equipment, followed by a very shallow dive in the lagoon to a maximum of 2 metres depth with an instructor. Many destinations complete this experience in a swimming pool but at Komandoo you’ll see fish swimming around you and maybe even a turtle so don’t miss this wonderful opportunity.

We recommend popping into the dive centre and booking this activity early in your stay because if you love it, (and we think you will!) you’ll be able to take part in the PADI Discover Scuba Diving activity and see even more of the Maldives’ marine life whilst enjoying shallow dives. There’s absolutely no obligation to do anything else though and it’s just a couple of hours out of your day for a memory that will stay with you forever.

There’s more to a holiday at Komandoo that indulging at the spa, sipping cocktails and relaxing on the beach – come and see the Maldives’ reefs and marine life that divers have been raving about for decades!
