Hi pedro

Have a look at the info on www.meeru.com( the official island site )under sports then diving which will give you info on all the sites the dive school go to.

If you are going in a couple of weeks we may meet up as we go on 22nd Feb and will be doing quite a bit of diving.

Bodu Hithi Thila is a good dive at this time of year as it is where you are likely to see mantas.We have been there in the last couple of years and have had a fantastic time!

Cheers
Helen

Forgot to mention the suit.
You don't need a very thick suit as it is very warm. We take our own BCDs/regs/masks/snorkels but hire the suits there-think they are 3mm.Have seen some people not use a suit at all!

First time I went, I took my 5mm full body suit .... Big mistake. I was so hot & uncomfortable. The sea in the Maldives is much warmer than the red sea & you'll also need fewer weights (some thing to do with the salt content). On my next visit I took a 3mm shorty which was much better.
