Make sure you take lots of Maldives diving photos, as these are by far the best way to get people interested in diving holidays in Maldives. If you’re concerned about the cost of scuba diving in Maldives, you donât need to worry. While it is true that Maldives diving prices can be very high, it is also possible to get a great deal on a diving safari Maldives. The most surefire way of getting cheap scuba diving holidays is to book last minute diving holidays. All of the Maldives diving liveaboards have a certain capacity they need to fill, so if the time comes for the safari to set sail, and the boat is not full, the operators would rather fill the boat with reduced-price passengers than sail a half empty boat, meaning that last minute diving holidays are available. Without getting a special deal on a Maldives diving safari, you will find that Maldives scuba diving prices vary wildly, depending on the length of the safari and the type of ship that you choose to dive from. For the cheapest scuba diving, you should book on one of the more basic liveaboards, which costs about US$180 per person per night, including all Maldives, diving and meals.
