Diving Seasons of Maldives.

  • The southwest season (May to October)
  • The end of May generally sees the change of monsoon season from southwest. The diving on the west side of the atoll in the southwest season is spectacular. You will regularly encounter large schools of pelagic fish like sharks, eagle rays and tuna.
  • Another noticeable feature of the southwest season is that the water temperature is usually one or two degrees lower that the usual 28º C (82ºF). This has an effect on both the behaviour and sightings of marine life, particularly the grey reef sharks and hammerheads , which seem to congregate in larger numbers and in shallower water at this time of year.
  • On the eastern side of the atolls, the southwest season is the best time to see manta rays and whale sharks. Here your visibility is not so good, but this is compensated for by the wonderful experience of diving with these huge plankton feeders.
  • The northeast season (November to April)
  • From November onwards the currents begin to flow from the northeast, visibility is superb and there is lots of action in the channels and thilas on the eastern side of the atolls from the sharks and other pelagic species.
  • Currents tend to be stronger in January and then ease as we move into February. From February the waters calm down and the surface of the sea is undisturbed by any major wind or wave action. The doldrums continue through March and April with easy diving and slack currents.
  • Throughout the northeast season, pelagic species such as shark and jacks are to be found on the current points on the eastern side of the atoll. In addition, there is usually a cornucopia of reef life. Manta rays and whale sharks, however, will only really be found on the west side during the northeast season.

Santa’s Full Time Work

Did you know that Santa Clause is actually a diver? After giving gifts to children during christmas season he will return to his full time work in diving. Joking aside but in Philippines, a professional diver wears a santa clause suit while feeding the fishes in a giant aquarium as part of Christmas celebration in Manila Ocean Park.

The Philippines, a mainly Roman Catholic country in Southeast Asia, prepares for Christmas early – shopping malls play Christmas carols in September and lanterns and fireworks are put up in early December.

Getting A Diving Job

OK, here’s the important stuff.

Getting the qualifications may at the time seem like the difficult part but frankly once you are qualified if you want to stay in the industry the work really will begin, getting a job is not easy.

So many people do the training and then lose heart as they find there is no simple way to find the job and they don’t know how to move to the next stage. I know my Son took the best part of a year to get his job. He totally loves it. However,  he saw various other people he trained with give up on the dream and return to normality back home after failing to land a job, they returned to  ‘normal’ jobs, mortgages etc ,you know all the stuff you were trying to run away from when you spent a goodly sum of money to learn to dive.

So  if you are looking for work here’s the best information I can give:

On the listings on this site the companies have been kind enough to give us a link to their emails:

You have to approach it like any other job application, write a Resume (CV) and literally send that with a covering message to as many of these companies as you can.

But, make sure you ask them if they have no roles available to recommend any other companies that may be looking, you see not all Scuba companies are listed with us  and there are many more out there.

But be sure you will be able to attend interviews, if you cannot do that your chances will be much lower.

If you dream job is in Bali can you get to Bali?

That’s it, it’s hard work and all you can do is work it and don’t give up.
