Underwater Life of the Maldives. Vilamendhoo: Corals

 
Underwater life of Vilamendhoo, Maldives. Corals.

Not every island of Maldives can boast of the active underwater life. If you need wonderful gold sand, clear blue water, and complete absence of underwater creatures, you will find it on the most of the islands. But if you prefer snorkeling or diving, you like to dip in a natural “aquarium” and feel yourself as a part of the world where the life was born, this photo post for you.

Ladies and Gentlemen, let me present…

  1. We used a point and shoot by Canon in a Dicapac bag…The pics aren’t as good as yours, but I think they still are some decent shots!

  2. Lovely pics….are these pics clicked while snorkeling or while diving?
    And …are these clicked during the day or at night? Did you use a torch if any of them were clicked at night?

    My husband and I are visiting Vilamendhoo for 4 days in May 2012 and would love to get some tips on snorkeling.

    1. While snorkeling and during the day.
      Tips:
      The best beach is near Beach Villas from 175 to 196, and Jacuzzi Beach Villas – 197-204.
      Moray lives opposite about number 200.
      Stingreys – 160-170.
      Anemones – 220-240.
      The reef sharks are everywhere 🙂
      Check the long coral reef by all means, but there is a strong stream at the end of it. Be careful!
      Good luck and give my love to Vilamendhoo.

      1. Thanks a tonne…that sure is a lot of help!

        I am truly excited about seeing the Nemo fish in the anemone. The last I saw good corals was in 2005 in Andamans in India. It was before the Tsunami hit this part of the world and obviously before El Nina robbed the corals of their colour.

        Another query: which camera have you used – an underwater one or a regular digicam? If it’s a digicam, does it have a housing or a Dicapac case?

        Thanks in advance 

      2. Hey Victor,

        Just got back from Vila last night…and I miss the place already.
        I managed to snorkel only half the reef. Loved the coral close to the water villa towards the west (rather south west). I did not venture into the deep and I was a little scared, but the shallow had enough and more to keep me happy.

        My husband and I went to swim with manta rays and whale shark and were lucky on both occastions :-). We also saw a turtle and loads of anemone on our way back from the manta ray excursion. Not to forget, we saw quite a few flying fish on the our way to the whale shark excursion.

        At the reef, we saw lovely corals – pink, yellow, blue, red! The sting rays were on the eastern side. We also saw a few star fish there.

        The star of the show, for me, is always the anemone…and the peeping clown fish.

        We used our canon camera with a dicapac plastic bag, which worked quite well.

        I will share the pics with you in the next couple of days.

  3. Wow!!! These pictures you took are amazing! I was in the Maldives in September but I stayed at Iru Fushi which was quite beautiful as well. I went diving and saw the most gorgeous colors but I can’t remember the names of the reefs! What a shame!
