I am off to Angaga in 5 weeks and can't wait! It will be our first time in the Maldives, and we are advanced qualified divers. I have three questions:
1) Are there any specific dive sites that anyone recommends that we should try to visit away from the house reef? I know any dive site will be amazing, just wondering if anyone has an favourites and why they are recommended.
2) Are there any specific sites that are better for possible Manta Ray spotting? I know it's out of season, just wondering.
3) I understand from the dive centre that dives are split morning and afternoon, with one dive on each. I've only dived in the UK and Caribbean/Mexico previously, and we have always done two-tank dives in the morning, back to the resorts around lunch time/early afternoon and then the rest of the day is free to hang with family/friends and snorkel. I much prefer two tank dives in one boat trip, rather than having to go out twice. The dive centre did say if enough divers want to do a two-tank dive, they would accomodate, but otherwise, it's one in the morning and one in the afternoon. What are your Maldives experiences in this sense? We are going to push for two-tank dives, but if we are unlucky, I fear I will be doing less diving than planned as I don't want to spend most of my holiday away from my family back at the resort.
