Indian Ocean

The warmest ocean in the world . . . . .
Overview:

The Indian OceanDream castaway islands, exquisite luxury, pristine beaches fringed with swaying palms and crysal clear waters .... welcome to the Indian Ocean.

The islands of the Indian Ocean are a varied collection, including many of the smallest territories.  Many hug the coastlines of continents; others must be sought out hundreds of miles from any other land.  But, the one thing they have in common, was being affected by the tsunami of Boxing Day 2004, ranging from remarkable waves to inundation.

The Indian Ocean offers diving for all levels, a varied underwater topography from vast underwater volcanic mountain ranges to huge granite boulders covered with soft corals and sponges.  

What to see:
Whales sharks: Seychelles, Maldives
Manta Rays: Maldives, Lakshadweep Islands, India
Wrecks: Sri Lanka
Shore diving: Maldives

Best dive trip of my life  Sea Queen, Maldives 5 Star Rating Added: 28th October 2014 by chlobro
Hi Everyone, I have just got back from an incredible trip aboard the MV Sea Queen in the Maldives. The crew were unbeatable and the instructors really know their dive sites. I have never seen so many sharks (whalesharks, black tips, white tips, nurse sharks, grey sharks) in one trip as...

I did 2 dives in the lagoon off Maubourg. The first at the Sirius wreck (25m) and the second at Anemone (10m) with my wife on her first dive ever. Dominique was a star making my wife feel totally comfortable on her first dive as part of the Discover Diving introduction....
Lovely boat and crew. A bit worried about safety.  Sea Spirit, Maldives 3 Star Rating Added: 22nd May 2014 by LadyGDiver
Went on the Manta and Whaleshark Sea Queen trip in May 2014 and was not disappointed in spite of the SW monsoon season having started. Only 5 guests ( of a possible 12) so the boat was un-crowded. The holiday was a wonderful combination of a peaceful 10 nights on...
Very good Experience  Ocean Spirit Diving Center, Indian Ocean 4 Star Rating Added: 16th May 2014 by mhernandez20031
I was in a business trip in Mauritius and had only one day to go diving. Ocean Spirit was a very good option. Gear is mostly new and the team is very capable and helpful. I recommend Coral Garden in the area. Barracuda, Sting Ray, Turtle, Javanese Morays were among...
