Try diving in the Maldives with TGI and SSI

The Maldives offers some of the world’s best diving. With incredible marine diversity, beautiful coral reefs and warm, clear waters, diving in the Maldives is an incredible experience everyone should get to enjoy. If you have never dived before, and are not sure how best to experience the stunning underwater world then TGI Maldives are here to help. SSI’s Basic Diver program, offered by TGI Maldives, is perfect for those wanting to take their first breaths under the surface and introduce themselves to this unique environment.

The program involves two dives, the first introduces those new to diving to the basics of Scuba in the safety of a sheltered shallow water session (usually either in a pool or sheltered lagoon area) under the supervision and guidance of one of our SSI Scuba professionals. This first session covers key safety issues and gets the diver used to breathing underwater. Successful completion of this first dive allows the participant to go on and complete the second dive, carried out on one of our nearby reefs, where they will get to dive in “open water” with their SSI Professional. During this dive the focus is continuing to improve underwater control, and enjoying being surrounded by the amazing marine life around our dive centers.

This introduction to diving is the perfect addition to any Maldivian holiday, and allows guests to experience the full beauty of the country. Those who, like us, fall in love with the underwater world can also use the dives done during the SSI Basic Diver as the first dives towards getting their SSI Open Water certificate, allowing them to dive anywhere in the world!
