weeks during the months of February, March and April 2.015.
Maldives MV Leo Force One will depart to the southern part of the
archipelago where it will remain without returning to Male for 8 weeks
basing the operation in the equatorial area. In April we will do the same
route during 4 weeks, 2 down and 2 up. The route is unique and outside all
traditional circuits. The quality of the dives is extraordinary. The amount
of life (schools of jackfish, schools of sharks, mantas
tiger, fox, hammerheads even the whale
shark at night ...) and the quality and exuberance of the coral reefs.

Deep South down/up and Southern Hemisphere.
Diving in both boats are from a Dhoni,
auxiliary Maldivian boat, of 18 meters length where air compressors and
nitrox well as dive gears are. So it makes the noise of the compressors to
refill bottles and humidity equipment is never a problem. 12 and 15 liters
The dhoni is completely independent of
the boat so you can access diving spots where coral reefs come almost to the
surface and divers collection is more comfortable.
Nitrox Rebreather Friendly
Sheets and bath
On each cabin there is a bath towel
per person that will be changed in midweek.
Each person must provide their own
toilet set as well as beach towels, in the boat there are not bath gel or
shampoo as in the hotels.
There is NO towels "Exterior /
saltwater" so we recommend bringing them from home.
Drift Diving is the most common in
Maldives enjoying the currents; the dhoni will pick up divers at the end of
the dive. The expedition leader is an expert diving instructor in these
waters and you will have a guide on all dives.
Bottles of 12 and 15 liters of steel,
free air or Nitrox, belt and weights are included. You must bring your own
gear and a decompression balloon with at least 9 meters out to signal climbs
to surface and thus alert the skipper. Dive computer and spotlight /
flashlight for night are essential (if not lack of lighting shall be allowed
in the night dives, losing diving). A 3 mm long suit is usually the most
suitable, although a shorty or lycra could also serve; suits of 5 mm or more
are usually undesirable.
