Dive Liveaboard | Liveaboard Diving Around Asia
Some of the best dive sites in Asia are only accessible by liveaboards because of their sheer distance from the nearest shore. Most divers would agree that the the less commercialised and more far flung a dive destination is, the more likely you are of having better diving because of the relatively untouched marine life - take for example Raja Ampat, Komodo Islands and Maldives.
That said, liveaboards may not be to everybody’s liking. If you suffer from seasickness, then this may not be the ideal choice for you without the help of medication as you will be out at sea for prolonged periods.
Diving via a liveaboard gives you the flexibility of covering a larger area of diving sites without the need to go back to shore. Some liveaboards even rival the top dive resorts in terms of luxury and comfort. For dive destinations like the Maldives, liveaboards may even prove a cheaper alternative than staying at an island resort. So come book your next liveaboard today!
It is possible to dive in the Maldives all year round, however, most liveaboard operators only run regular trips between August to May. The best months for diving are thought to be between January to April, with the best weather, visibility and overall diving conditions. It is important to note that generally speaking, lower visibility could be caused by an abundance of plankton in the water, which could also increase chances of whaleshark and manta ray sightings.
Komodo Marine Park is has of the richest marine enrivonment with over 250 coral reef species and over a 1000 species of fishes. Komodo dragon is also not to be missed when visiting Komodo
