Unlike other countries where you can visit an island and rent a car, the best way to snorkel Maldives is to stay at one or more island resorts which offer good snorkelling house reefs. The reefs you could snorkel in the Maldives are primarily hard corals, a mix of table, finger, staghorn, boulder, lobe, and brain corals. You would find a few soft corals like leather coral, but not sea fans or rods like you see in the Caribbean. Explore the marine life along walls of coral, over shallow patch reefs with a sandy bottom, on the top and around the edges of pinnacle reefs, among others.

You will find two seasons in the Maldives and they are called Monsoons. The Northeast Monsoon is the dry one. The Southwest Monsoon is the wet season. If you take a look at rainfall statistics, it seems as though the driest months are January to April and the rain months are from May through December. The months with the lowest average wind speeds and lowest wind probabilities are March and April. Considering the above statistics, we would recommend that March would be the best time to snorkel around in Maldives!
