photographers agree that Maldives is the best place in the world to
photograph fish. Mainly because nowhere else is there such form and
variety of fish and coral life. The best dive sites for photographing
large pelagic fish such as sharks, mantas or jacks are the atoll
passes or channels.
Currents are often strong in the channels and it may become necessary
to hold on to something to remain still. For good images of colorful
fish and corals, dive in the ‘thilas’ or shoals inside the atolls. The
conditions in these often are suitable for you to calmly and carefully
frame your shots. While UW cameras are available for rent at most dive
schools in the Maldives, you may not be able to get the exact
equipment you require.
