The Maldives is great for year-round diving, despite the seasonal weather patterns becoming less and less predictable throughout the islands. For best overall visibility underwater, calmer seas and clear blue skies, head to the Maldives between December and April, arguably the best time to dive in the Maldives. Between May and November, you'll find stronger winds and slightly rougher seas, but also hopefully plenty of nice sunny spells and water and land temperatures remain lovely. However, there is also a higher chance of rain and for the most part, lower visibility. See below for the best time to dive in the different atolls of the Maldives.
