Usually, many divers practice not only in such water bodies as the Black Sea or Rybinsk Reservoir, they compare diving in the Maldives with a similar occupation in the same Red Sea, as the flora and fauna of these diving areas have quite a lot similar. However, there are some differences. In particular, it is clearly visible, if you took some photos of the Maldives during the next dive into the water element of the coastal strip of these islands. So in particular the corals of the Red Sea are brighter and colorful than their Maldivian brethren. And in the Maldives you practically will not see a large marine life, similar to the same sharks and sea rays.
However, it is worth remembering such a feature of diving on these islands. In order to protect coral reefs, the authorities strictly defined the places where you can dive. Proceeding from this, the map of the Maldives, contains quite clear directions for diving enthusiasts, about the boundaries of the selected water areas of the coastal strip of the ocean where immersion is allowed. It should be noted that if you do not have special diver insurance, the local marine police can take your equipment from you and issue a nearly symbolic fine of several hundred US dollars.
