Working in the Maldives as a dive instructor

maldives-reethifaru-diving-renate-rigters

A month and a half goes by in the Maldives as if it was only a few days. Time goes fast when you’re having fun definitely counts here.

The water temperature was about 27 degrees and with a maximum depth of 18 meters near the coast. We dove at two dive spots; El Laberinto and Morro Maguey. I liked the second spot better for the thousands of porcupinefish. Those creatures are simply adorable!
