Alimatha part 3 (Maldives)

Maldives - Curiosity - Back to index
By: Carlo Piccinelli

Alimatha on Google Maps.
This underwater video between sharks and rays, concludes the series of the spectacular night dive along the reef of Alimatha, one of the famous islands in the vast archipelago of the Maldives. At night, the sandy bottom reflects the light creating a nice play of shadows and lights but the rays, in search of food, raise a lot of sand reducing visibility. For this reason, the most experienced divers, placing upstream of the current to have, around them, clean water but when the sharks and stingrays increase in number, it's hard to resist the temptation to join the group and be part of the group. A dive and a journey absolutely unforgettable.
